Sure, as long as they don't mind worshiping our way while they stay.

Of course. One has to go where the faith is praticed, and the truth is preached.

"Certainly, you must be informed about modern errors because preaching the truth involves preaching about distancing oneself from error; but do not make the negative, secondary aspect into the most important! Your first aim is not to fight against error but to know the truth. Your central concern should be study, your sanctification, silence, meditation, and the exercise of charity." - Archbishop Lefebvre

For the same reason we weren't Greeks to begin with:  we're Romans.  We think like Romans, speak like Romans, and our worship reflects our Roman-ness. 

The Latin Catholics problem is that someone took our Roman religion and transformed it into what a bunch of renaissance Germans ancient Catholicism might have been like.  All they achieved was making a new German religion. 

But we say that the Roman tradition is at least as old as the Greek tradition.  The Roman tradition is the other of the two pillars of Christianity - Roman and Greek.  There is no third, fourth or fifth pillar.  All Christianity is divided into one of those branches.  The Roman tradition must be saved, for the good of Roman, Greek and Jew.  If Romans don't save it, who will?  It is not the job of the Greek to save the Latin tradition.  It is the job of the Roman.  It's no different than in the empire in which the Church arose.  Latin and Greeks were united, yes.  And they cooperated, yes.  But it was the Romans' job to defend the west, and the Greeks' job to defend the east.   

Turning Greek will not solve the Romans' problem.  All it does is make the problem someone else's problem.  The Pharisee didn't solve the man's problem by walking away.  The Samaratin solved it by not walking away.

^ Great post. Very interesting perspective. There have been several instances in which I have considered going Byzantine in order to escape the modernists, but I am just a Latin at heart.

Hope you meet a nice local women.

I am unable to reach any of these mass's.

Glasgow also has the two diocesan licit diocesan parishes that offer the traditional Mass (with one of them having now had two monsignors celebrating).  As well as other Glasgow priests that are sympathetic to the traditional Mass.  There's also the Mass offered in the Diocese of Motherwell.  And Una Voce Scotland's Masses organised throughout the central belt.  What diocese are you in?  I myself am in the Diocese of Paisley.

I know that it doesn't help since if you're too far away from Glasgow for the SSPX then the diocesan Masses wont be of much benefit.  But Scotland isn't exactly a barren waste land.

I pray you do not apostasies from the true Faith.  Look for some Eastern Catholics (incidentally, PM me.  I have a friend whose girlfriend is Romanian.  If you know which diocese in Romania you'll be staying in, I can ask her for directions).
