There is a very simple course to more vocations. Be friendly to the Traditional Latin Mass parishes. If you don’t want to promote it, at the very least, stop blocking it!

    Where have you encountered a Mass celebrated entirely in Latin? I have never heard of it!!! Pope John XIII published the last revision of the TLM missal in 1962 and all of the parts of the Mass addressed to the people or by the people to God are in the vernacular while all the parts of the Mass addressed to God are in Latin. You are beating a dead horse !!!

    I think getting rid of a Mass said totally in the vernacular is as bad an idea as trying to get rid of a Mass said totally in Latin. New Catholics in America were not brought up in a Latin Mass and find a home in the English one. Let them exist, side-by-side, so we don’t lose yet more parishioners. We must take care to not increase the bleeding. Note that I’m referring here to simply the language used, not the order of the Mass.

    The Novus Ordo needs to be trashed in it’s entirety. Then modify the Tridentine Rite to use parts of it in Vernacular. That’s it!!!!! The next Holy Pope needs to reverse all the Bergolgian Nonsense to the 1983 Code of Cannon Law. Leave that in it’s entirety, but then remove parts of Vatican II which are harmful. The 1983 Code of Cannon law can remain while Vatican II can be abrogated and started over the correct way. Vatican II is a pastoral council, so this will all be legitimate.
