The post begins by referring to three diocesan priests in Italy to began, in the wake of the motu proprio in 2007, to begin to celebrate exclusively the Extraordinary Form. The Mass that our Holy Father reaffirmed "was never juridically abrogated and, consequently, in principle, was always permitted."
And yet to dare to celebrate this Mass of great antiquity--to follow the explicit legislation of the Vicar of Christ-- is for a priest to invite persecution. And to celebrate it, and it alone, well, that takes courage.
There are many approaches to encouraging liturgical restoration, and with it, the restoration of the Catholic faith within the Church. Some belong to religious communities that are dedicated to the traditional form, some try to incorporate the Extraordinary Form into the life of the parish alongside the Ordinary Form. I do not criticize the good faith effort of any such priest, bishop or faithful. What I do sincerely believe is that over time, one Form will achieve the principal place and the other will greatly recede. I won't spoil the ending for readers by telling you which one I think will win out. Time will tell, of course, but without the traditional Mass of the Church gaining strength there is not much chance that the Church (and I speak here of the temporal side only) will regain the vitality of faith so desperately needed as we (in the words of a holy priest) "descend into a new age of persecution."
The post and the links therein are worth reading. Take some time to do so. As
