Letters to the Editor

Dear Jim,

Here is a little poem that I composed. This is not meant to offend those who attend the Novus Ordo Missae. I understand that some do not have a TLM to attend, or some attend the Novus ordoMissae as a means to keep the family together. We are in the midst of a desolate crisis and each family has to decide what is best. God Bless each of you!


 Bitten by the Liberal Bug


                    There are some that have been bitten by the liberal bug.

                      They attend the Novus Ordo Missae, to receive a hug.


                                   Now, please excuse me, if I refrain.

                              The clowns and kumbaya, I must abstain.


                              There is so much there, that I can't stand.

Especially, Communion, in the Hand.


                                  There is a lot there that I can't handle.

                             Female altar servers, Oh what a scandal!


                       They have torn down our altars and erected a stage.

Oh my, can you feel the rage?


                           The ecumenism is Church teaching neglected.

                             I'm glad that Traditionalists are not infected.


                                 Now, please don't think that I am crass.

Simply, because I love the Traditional Latin Mass.


                   It is the Mass of the Saints and Martyrs that I am smitten.

                        Oh, thank you Lord, that I have not been bitten!




            The following Website would be of interest to those who love the TLM.http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2013/06/sacra-liturgia-conference-bp-dominique.html

The following are some of the comments from the site:

We need to recognize, as did Blessed John Paul II, that there have been both “lights” and “shadows” in the liturgical life of the Church in the past 50 years (cf.Ecclesia de Eucharistia, n. 10).

We need to celebrate the legitimate progress that has been made. We need to consider the lessons that the mistakes made during these fifty years teach us.

We need to look again at the liturgical Constitution and re-discover its true meaning. Perhaps we need to correct some practices or recover some things that we have lost through what Cardinal Ratzinger called a “reform of the reform”?
