I have problems with conducting mass in Latin for many reasons. The main reason is that, especially today, the church should be as accessible as possible. Conducting mass in the local language is simply logical. My other problem with it is that conducting mass in Latin seems to me like an institutional tradition rather than a religious tradition. After all, Jesus didn't conduct mass in Latin. Conducting mass in Latin doesn't enhance the spiritual value of mass and conducting it in other languages doesn't lessen it's spiritual value.

Stephanus,  Been There, done that...back when the Tridentine Rite WAS Mass.  I prefer the vernacular Mass that gets the congregants involved in the Service.  In the old days, it was pretty much up, down, sit for homily, up, down, with the first pew holding elderly widows "telling their beads" because none of them understood Latin.

However, to each his own, I just will hold to my personal opinion that folks who do not antedate the opening of Vatican II really don't have much idea what the "traditional Church" was like.  The Latin Mass came with a ton of baggage.

Be a real man and go to the Traditional Latin Mass! (check out this great blog about Catholic Tradition: http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/)

Hi guys! I'm a christened as a catholic, but I respect other religions, I think we try to climb the same mountain from different sides, so I try to take the goog things from every religion, but the catholic traditions are important for me. I hope in this group I can learn a lot about chatolicism

Hello everyone, recently joined. I hope everyone is having a great MLK day.  I have recently taking it upon myself to dive deeper into my faith and I think this would be a great place to mull he more important questions in life and meet like minded individuals.

I think we need some more action happening in this group.

Went to Christmas Vigil Mass.  Easier on the family than Midnight Mass

HE is Risen! Alleluia!  Alleluia!  ALLELUIA!

12:01 AM, March 5th, 2014.  New Orleans.  NOPD sweeps the FrenchQuarter, thus reinforcing that Lent has started and it's time to mortify the flesh by going home and enjoying your Ash Wednesday hangover.
