Watching TLM online
#1
Hi all.  I don't live near a parish that offers the TLM.  The closest one to me is about an hour away and I don't have a car and I have no one who would be willing to loan me their car for the purpose of going to this Mass.  While I will continue to meet Sunday Mass and Holy Day of Obligation requirements by going to my local parish, is there any benefit, even minor ones, of "attending" a TLM being broadcast via the Internet?  I found this FSSP parish offering their Masses online: http://www.livemass.net/LiveMass/Live.html
"For the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries nor innovators, but traditionalists."
- Pope St. Pius X

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables."
- 2 Timothy 4:3-4

"Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying: That all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity."
- 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

It could certainly help you learn to follow what's going on. I attended several traditional Latin Masses before I figured it out.

Thank you.  I hadn't considered that it would be good preparation for attending a TLM in person.  So, my next question is, would there be any spiritual benefit to watching?  Thanks, again.

I can't see why there wouldn't be any kind of good thing to come out of it. You're spending 40+ minutes praying the Mass, even if you're not there it's worth something. I know of people who watch the Mass on EWTN every single day, it obviously is a good thing for their faith. It doesn't replace actually being at a Mass, but it surely is a supplement. If it wasn't, then there wouldn't be so many televised Masses to begin with.

btw, if you want the text of the Mass use this: http://www.divinumofficium.com/cgi-bin/missa/missa.pl

Thank you for this! Due to my health and transportation problems, I can seldom make it to the TLM. This is a Godsend!
