Latin Mass Center stats for much of the world

USA is number 1! We Catholics in the United States have it very good here compared to other places in the world.


1) United States: 289 authorized every-Sunday TLM sites out of a total of 359 (80.5%)

2) France: 156 out of 312 (50%)

3) Germany: 49 out of 88 (55.7%)

4) Italy: 73 out of 86 (84.9%)

5) United Kingdom: 37 out of 53 (69.8%)

6) Brazil: 42 (including those in Campos) out of 48 (87.5%)

7) Switzerland: 21 out of 45 (46.6%)

8) Canada: 23 out of 39 (60%)

9) Australia: 17 out of 28 (60.7%)

10) Poland: 15 out of 26 (57.7%)


The disproportionate concentration of TLM’s in the United States and France cannot be overlooked, in the same way that the numbers in such large Catholic countries as Italy, Brazil and Poland can cause much disquiet (albeit these already represent a situation greatly improved from that of 10 years ago).


The statistics apparently leave out independent chapels and Mass sites associated with sedevacantist groups (even those that are staffed by priests with unquestionably valid orders).

I don't know why there is the smirking face thing next to Canada it does't show up when I try to modify it.

Ah, as they say, "The devil is in the details." Take a look at this one:

Are they trying to imply that there are only 359 sites offering Mass on Sunday? That's only a little better than 7 locations per state, for example, I could see there being 359 Masses in California on a given Sunday, alone. It looks a bit "sideways" to my eyes.

There are only 359 TLM sites in the US, of which 289 offer the Mass on every Sunday, with the remainder on some other schedule?

Actually it looks like France has it best

we have 359 with  a lot of indult for a population of ~300 mil
they have 312 with a lot less indult for a population of ~62 mil to 65 mil depending on what you count


us - 836K per chapel
them - 208 K per Chapel

and if you count only Catholics

us 73.6 mil

them 33 mil

still better especially considering the nominative nature of French "religion"

No, I believe it means

There are a total of 359 TLM sites which offer the TLM every Sunday
Of those 359, 289 are approved (ie non SSPX)

The total doesn't include TLM sites which don't offer the TLM on Sunday or don't offer it regularly

Edit: Pretty astonishing that one religious order accounts for 20% of the regular Sunday TLM's in the US

289 is great, but what's the trend?  Up or down from what baseline?
