I'm first finding this: Letter on Novus Ordo Missae

(Except for 1 funeral I attended & that's another horrible subject.) I'd attended the TLM from the time I was born in 1941 until I was 28. That's when they first brought the "new Mass" into my diocese. I then attended it faithfully until 1985 & I started missing Mass for reasons that I would never have accepted before. Then God blessed me. We got a TLM in my city when SP was promulgated.

I didn't miss Mass again,( though it started at 12:30PM.). I purchased a 1962 daily Missal & a veil & felt like I was home, again. A few years later that priest was transferred to a parish in KC. where he could give this Latin Mass to more people. However, that left me a round trip drive of 150 miles to attend the TLM. My husband & I are retired & we just can't afford the gas.

Pope Benedict said that where there is a need for the Mass of the Ages the priests & Bishops were to fill that need. They were to make the Latin Mass GENEROUSLY available. They aren't. Therefore, I stay home & read my Missal & pray the Rosary & I think that God will accept that. (I'd be better off had I never prayed the Latin Mass at all. Because I grew up with it, DAILY, I knew how wrong this new Mass was.

With any luck God is sending me the TLM weekly starting in late September.

I was better off when I was a NO Catholic.  Ignorance was bliss. 

And thank you. IT's nice to know someone gets what I'm going through.
