Traditional Mass at WYD 2005!

Juventutem, an international organization of youth devoted to the Mass of St. Pius V and in communion with the Bishop of Rome, is making a splash in Cologne at WYD 2005, according to this news story.

Prelates joining Juventutem for events during WYD include two members of the American episcopacy, His Eminence Francis Cardinal George of Chicago and His Excellency Archbishop Raymond Burke of St. Louis.

Of course, the traditional Mass is nothing new for Cardinal George or Archbishop Burke. George has provided for traditional liturgy in his archdiocese through the Society of St. John Cantius and now also through the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, which will open up a beautifully restored parish on Chicago's South Side to serve as their new national headquarters. Burke has also been a friend to the Institute, both while in LaCrosse and now that he is in St. Louis. In fact, he has given the Institute an Oratory church in St. Louis.

Pray that groups like Juventutem, religious communities like the Society of St. John Cantius and the Institute, and solid bishops like George and Burke will help to engender greater concern for the manner in which the Novus Ordo is celebrated, as well.

I went to a Latin Mass in San Diego at the request of your little friend Thomas. There were some odd peeps there. Don't think I'll be returning anyday soon. I love traditional sacred music and the photo you've posted looks pretty cool. If it brings kids closer to Christ, more power to em.

By the way, you guys should post some photos of the pope in Cologne. Off to my beach volleyball camp and then to the tanning salon...

Hey, perplex me. Maybe its just your being from San Diego. I think you are full of contradictions. That's hot.

As you can tell from my photo, I'm a whole lot classier than the Novus Ordo is or ever could hope to be. As they say, you can take people out of the slums, but you can't take the slums out of the Novus Ordo. My advice if you want to class things up a bit is to forget about churchgoing and start dressing to impress.

Sainte Chopin -

Fake blondes do it for me. What can I say? My profound apologies to Mariette. Better get back to writing my Sunday homily...oh, yah...and the yoga exercise. Taking Kelley's advice to heart.

Gee, My family goes to the Latin Mass in San Diego every Sunday (and has done so for the last 12 years). I hope we weren't the "odd peeps" who scared Kelly away. Even so, you're always welcome to return; one advantage of the Latin Mass is that if you wish, you can pretty much be left alone with God.

Thank you, ex-Lutheran. It is the impression of the Vaticanisti that kelley sterling is sometimes prone to hyperbole and juvenile comments.

Funny how the Pope had the time to meet with a bunch of rabbis but not attend the Traditional Latin mass, which he supposedly supports. More ecumenism and Vatican II garbage, and he wants reverence back into the church? It starts with the mass my friends, and from the Pope on down are looking under every rock but dont have the guts to say that hey-maybe that Bugnini character and his Protestant buddies took us for a ride and we should stick with what survived for almost 2000 years
