The "Francis Effect"...
« on: August 13, 2014, 04:10:47 AM »

I MUST say, being of the pre-V-II generation that, had the Tridentine Mass never been done away with I would quite possibly still be Roman Catholic.  I served as an altar boy, a ringer and a server as a kid and an usher as I got older.  Then the Vernacular Mass came along and "out the door I went".  I know that there are other Lapsed Catholics here, (and I do NOT want this to turn into some sort of bash fest.  I WILL use the "mod rod" judiciously should that occur.

I don't recall ever hearing a mass in Latin.  I was 6 in '69.

I have heard the Tridentine Mass and it is beautiful and powerful. Far more spiritual than the vernacular.

I like the sound of chanting monks in a vaulted hall, powerful and reassuring at the same time.

We must remember that the common folk were forbidden to read the bible back when.  I remember the latin masses.  Left me in the dark.  Just a bunch of mumbo jumbo to a young child.
