Poll: almost half of Mass-goers would attend older form

An extraordinary article from the Catholic Herald (UK). The paragraph at the very end of the article is astounding in its obviousness; Almost half of English and Welsh Mass-goers would attend Masses in the traditional form of the Roman Rite if it was celebrated in local parishes, a new study has shown.

The survey, which used a sample of 800 people who identified themselves as Catholic, showed that 66 per cent of practising Catholics would be happy to attend the traditional Latin Mass once a month if it were celebrated in their parishes.

Commissioned by the French group Paix Liturgique, the survey also showed that Britain had a higher percentage of regular Mass attendance than France, Portugal and Germany.

Although only 19 per cent of Britain's population identifies as Catholic, 32 per cent of Catholics attend Mass at least once a month, if not more often, compared with 19 per cent of French Catholics and 10 per cent of German Catholics.

Indult Masses always problematic in so many ways - that's one reason, among many, I attend an SSPX Chapel. I pray for the church to resume The True Faith, Mass, and Sacraments. I will pray for your Diocese. Go with God.
