This sounds rather annoying. I'd be interested to know if this priest, Fr. Glen Tattersall, is still an FSSP priest (apparently he was, at least).

From NLM:

In Utroque Usu: The Catholic Community of Blessed John Henry Newman, Melbourne
BY SHAWN TRIBE
Our readers will of course be familiar with Fr. Glen Tattersall and the Catholic Community of Blessed John Henry Newman -- the EF chaplaincy based out of the archdiocese of Melbourne, Australia. They have just announced that, beginning May 12th, their intent is to now additionally offer a weekly vigil Mass according to the Ordinary Form [NLM emphases]:

THE ORDINARY FORM OF THE ROMAN RITE: SACREDNESS IN CONTINUITY

The promulgation of the new translation of the Roman Missal of 1970, invites us to reflect further on the "hermeneutic of continuity" articulated by Pope Benedict XVI, and the importance of this being demonstrated consistently in the celebration of the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite.

Beginning Saturday 12th May (at 6 pm), a weekly Vigil Mass in the Ordinary Form will be offered at St Aloysius' Church, 233 Balaclava Rd, Caulfield, which will try to exemplify "sacredness in continuity". The Mass will be celebrated in English, "ad orientem" at the High Altar, and with both the Propers and Ordinary of the Mass being sung. Following the example of Pope Benedict XVI, Communicants will be invited to receive Holy Communion on the tongue, whilst kneeling at the Altar rails.

The inaugural Mass, at 6 pm on Saturday 12th May, will be offered for the intentions of Pope Benedict XVI.

The community has started an additional website to this purpose: http://www.reform-of-the-reform.org.

Their intent is made clear by the press release. While their focus remains the EF, they wish to provide for a celebration of the OF that exemplifies continuity. Given their particular devotion to and familiarity with the usus antiquior, they are certainly very well placed to effect such "reform in continuity."

That's stupid.
Well, there you go. The mentality of "we say the old Mass because we love the old Mass, not because we dislike the New."
Actually it seems to me that this Priest is trying to bring back some dignity to a rite that has been destroyed by modernists. If anything this will most likely challenge the NO priests because I am sure their parishioners who have never seen something like this will go back and ask why their Mass can not be done that way. If anything I would expect others to be attracted to the EF.
How did modernists destroy it when modernists, protestants, etc. had an active hand in creating it?

I just don't get it. Stick with butter and not "I can't believe it's not."

BecauseĀ  its still a valid Mass done by people with valid orders that leaves so much freedom in exercising the rite that even though it can look like what it looks like today for most churches it can also look, sound and be very much what its suppose to be, that is the Catholic Mass.

The Mass and Council suffer from the same problem and that is the ambiguity of its intent. The man made mass can be unmade by man as well and I think that this priest is proving that.

Yes, exactly.

Modernists destroy their own valid modernist service for the sake dignifying their modernist service in the hopes that this new dignification will help destroy their brainchildĀ  which will lead priests to the true mass. Now there's a first.

As long as there is a NO, may as well expect them all to be.
