I actually thought that was a pretty good article, but we still have too many cowardly bishops of the wrong generation to make it happen. Right now there are many young priests who would either offer the EF outright or even reintroduce traditional elements into the OF– if only the bishop would just quietly let them know that he had their backs and wouldn’t throw them under the bus or send them to diocesan Siberia if they did it. And just when I’m about to give up on the OF, I get to a really good one that reminds me that it can be done reverently and traditionally. Regardless of what I think, though, the traditionalists are going to win because they’re the ones reproducing and the bishops of 25 years from now will come from their ranks– because there won’t be anyone else. The heterodox side of the Church is in the process of imploding. The bad news there is that it is that 90% of the Church that Msgr. Pope references. It’s going to be the 10%, maybe 20% of the right that is going to have to sustain the rebirth of Catholicism. Fortunately, God doesn’t need numbers– just quality.

I am Traditional Catholic and I believe you are being delusional. The number of Catholics who attend the New Mass is not 90%, it is 99%. Even in countries with a little more of Traditional options like the US, it must be around 98%. In Latin America the Tridentine Mass is unexistent, a few chapels for more than 400 million Catholics, the same in the Philippines and Africa. What we need to do in the places where we have a relatively solid presence of Traditional faithuls its to try to have as many Catholics and non Catholics been encouraged to attend the Mass. Those people are our friends and relatives, they live around us. Lets try to invite every Sunday a friend or relative to the Mass, lets show them the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith. Its up to the laity, with Gods help, to bring the faith.
