"I support the
Traditional Mass. I have concerns about the New Mass. I understand you support
the Traditional Latin Mass, but how committed are you since your site also
contains information on the Novus Ordo?"

It is good to hear of
your support for the Traditional Latin Mass. While we share your concern about
the Novus Ordo Mass (for example, see our article
here), please note that our site, unfortunately, has to include some Novus
Ordo information since many of our visitors attend this Mass. As we state on our
site, our position is that the Novus Ordo Mass is valid (when said with proper
matter, form, and intention), although we fear it may be harmful (especially to
faith in the Real Presence and fear of the Lord) and tends to encourage
irreverence and sacrilege.
Please be assured of
our strong commitment to the TLM (we generally attend nothing else, unless we
have no other choice). However, it is necessary for us to also reach out to
attendees of the Novus Ordo. We hope our approach encourages fellow Catholics to
discover the ancient Mass, and I believe it has done this (at least one visitor
has told us it has). In any event, we hope you can understand our approach to
this matter, even if you may not agree with it. Should you have any comments or
concerns, please let us know. Thank you for contacting us. God bless you.
