“The Tridentine Mass is tried and proven,” as this article points out and actually puts the Catholic in tune with God, but not what some would obviously prefer, out of tune with our heavenly father and more in tune with this man-made secular world that will pull us down not lift us up in our souls as we should be doing when participating in the Traditional Mass! The parishioners should be willing to adjust to the Traditional Mass and not the Mass adjusts to any modern configuration or notions of what it should be for whomever!
The right word was focused on here of “progressive” which is the new way to travel in this world for many and these progressives seem to think they have the answers of how to make our lives better and build a sustainable wonderful world right here on Earth! Is that so, and these progressives know more than God and Jesus Himself apparently, who died on the cross for all of us; because we are doomed to death and destruction! Was what Jesus did then unnecessary according to progressive thinking? Could the Father be wrong and they are right? This is all rebellion and transgression away from God just like the Reformation movements of the past were and as we have become more aware over the last several decades so too was the Second Vatican Council; and all of this seeking major change or diverting away from the Traditional is really just a false cause by those that are turning away from God because they have personal or collective agendas to serve; namely to join he ways of the world over what Jesus said; “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” John 14:6
As mentioned here how such amazing great art and spiritual inspiration came to so many past saints, martyrs or lay persons who were deeply moved and directed by God in their visiting the Traditional Mass through the ages, which is also more proof in the pudding as the saying goes of being tried and tested long enough to know we see God’s blessing bestowed upon His Church and its members via he Tridentine Mass.
Look where rebellion and so called older progressivism or reformation has taken humanity! When you really look at it, how there are almost countless denominations or variations of the Church which makes no sense and actually proves itself out to cause great harm having wreaked havoc, discord or the breaking up of the family and even death; to many over the years. No disparage intended to anyone but I know what I have experienced and found in the Holy Mother Church that Jesus Himself began with the Apostles and I have found God’s presence unmistakably while visiting the Tridentine Mass, which I have not experienced anywhere else; not in any Post Vatican II modern mass or any other assembly of faithful I’ve had occasion to visit over the years. As I quote from this article here, “setting their sights on something otherworldly, something outside, something higher,” yes that is exactly what I seek in the Tridentine Latin Mass and do find it; absolutely!
Let’s consider what I had to say in response to a previous CP&S hat involved he same subject and I think most of you if not all will see more deeply where I’m coming from here.
“I know that my soul has been very moved and inspired when I partake in the Full Latin Mass; as I know from experience Jesus is there and I feel His Holy Spirit coming down from heaven with the Father to join us in the Mass, blessing those who are participating in this most Divine inspired true way of expressing our devotional love for our Lord Savior Jesus and the Father in heaven! I’ve had many tears in this traditional Mass at times and they are always tears of sweet joy that are coming to me from the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, because the Lord is really touching my soul at that time most intimately and acknowledging His presence and love for me, as in no other setting can this occur to this degree; which nothing on earth can compare to this realization that my God is with me, and will not abandon those who believe/worship Him in this way! Amen.”
Those are my absolutely certain truthful observations and deepest feelings in this regard! And I should share what else I had to say just prior to what you read here to make it clear how certain I am about this.
“And so far as his argument, (Archbishop Arthur Roche) that the world had changed I totally disagree because it’s the people that have changed, and, God and Jesus are the same always so our communing with them in Holy Mass remains static, or plainly our souls are just that which we truly are; not our exteriors of body/flesh or daily life on earth; and therefore that is what we want to awaken to the “mystical power of the Holy Spirit” the focusing of “our inner souls to the mystical presence of God” and be totally receptive to “Jesus Christ and through Him the Father” to grow our deep “heart felt faith” not alter appearances or procedures as this New Age approach is planning to do! In this case especially in life, “less is more;” that which is not contrived or noisy but “simple and peaceful coming from our core is all we need to bring to the ceremonial alter of the Mass!” Amen.
Tried and proven; and I know from experience it’s the only Mass for me! Amen.
God bless all who read this and may they find all peace and joy in you Lord Jesus Christ, our Lord Savior and Redeemer. Amen.
Brother in Christ Jesus,
Lawrence Morra III
Before reading the article below, please note: “In this time of kenotic simplification, one group of Catholics is growing [everywhere] and growing strong: Catholics who want traditional sacred worship. The numbers are encouraging. During the last year quite a few younger priests have learned the traditional form of Holy Mass and have implemented it in their parishes. I don’t think we have accurate stats right now, because many of these initiatives have been handled quietly.
Two things are absolutely necessary to carry this forward, for the good of the Church and, frankly, the nation, is for these good people – who just want to be Catholic – to commit themselves to solid involvement in their parishes and chapels, not merely to drive in on Sunday and drive away until the next Sunday.” [source]
Spare a thought for progressives. Life hasn’t been all…

TLM has come under a sustained attack from within. Conservative Catholics are on their own for the most past and are in the way of their plans to throw the sheep to the wolves of this world. Trump was also politically in the way . Conservatives are now open to being the lambs to slaughter the last ones standing against all this evil . 🌼🌸🙏

Very good perspective and true! I had some greater hope for a time that Trump could and would be able to pull off even much more than he did even with all those evil doers tearing at him his whole term; but in the end it’s not meant to be. Even though he not being a politician or a typical one still isn’t the answer; now I see all politicians for what they are and its not pretty!
We the people are the lambs being prodded and pushed around for the coming slaughter, while they all grab the earth’s riches and are thus doomed to hell! They are being tested like all of us are, and to be in their place is far worse than where you or I are standing; so humility will aid us to be in tune with the Almighty far more than they can ever be; money and earthly power; the “Ways of the World” rules them!
Look at some of the recent photos of Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler, Romney, Biden, Maxine Waters, Harris and so many of them; they have doom and death in their faces and eyes! To me they are only a step from actual hell.
Excellent insight and faith on your part!🌼🌸🙏

You know what it is also Lawrence . People tend to look and join the winning side however evil, if it looks like one side is winning they gravitate to it regardless of its evil, it must be the more powerful force. They can’t work out why Conservative faithful would dare rock the boat, put themselves up for further intimidation & harrassment with possible martyrdom as an outcome, especially for an ‘invisible non existent man in the sky ‘. So they join them instead. Reality is the few really faithful know that even if they lose here, the victory is on the other side. So who cares about all the intimidation here.🌸🌼🌸🌼🙏

Precisely! You said this perfectly well! What have the saints and martyrs all shown us and before them Jesus Christ Himself! These foolish sinful non-believers cling to this world which is passing away! Just a bit of common sense tells anyone with a clue or most importantly a bit of faith; that if a ship is sinking to the bottom of the ocean today and if they climb to the highest mast or smoke stack on the vessel, how will that save them; when they will go down with that ship regardless and what do they gain putting faith in that but a few more minutes or seconds! And exercise in futility!
The answers have all been provided to us and faith must be a part of the equation, faith in the unseen which I see fine because I know I’m just one little person in all of this existence so I don’t see diddly-squat! He who knows all things came here to give us what we needed to see the Truth; so we at least have to show trust and confidence in what He said; not what we think will save us from the inevitable or what some billionaires and powerful men of the world say! 🌸🌼🌸🌼🙏
