There is an obsession with the small number of Catholics worldwide who prefer the TLM because of its dignity, reverence and, most importantly, predictability. They know what to expect at a TLM and there won’t be any unpleasant surprises.
Yet, in any parish throughout the world, there is no telling what you will get at the Modern Vernacular Mass. Every priest celebrates this Mass in his own way and usually reflects his personality be it introverted or extraverted.
Sometimes you will get something like this by way of Irish clergy recently celebrating Mass at the outdoor shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes in Lourdes, France:
No matter how relevant this must have been for this particular pilgrimage and its members, it is, nonetheless, sacrilegious. Yet, this like Saint Sabina’s in Chicago, and others too numerous to name, is given a pass, encouraged or ignored by the Vatican.
But this is to be stamped out for being backwards and nostalgic:
So problematic is the image above, that the Vatican has taken very authoritarian steps to crush it, push them out, marginalize them. I truly think they want these people to go to the SSPX. I don’t blame those who want to go if they go. They’ve been encouraged to do so by the highest authority of the Church.
Yet the stuff above the TLM photo, no concern whatsoever and you’ll never see an authoritarian means by which to rid the Church of that kind of nonsense.
