Tridentine Mass Returns to Carmel, Indiana
edit_button


What do you do when 152 people show up for the inaugural Sunday Traditional Latin Mass and you can only seat 98 people? Father Gerard Saguto, FSSP had no thoughts of sending anyone home and in the true spirit of Summorum Pontificum said “stack’em in”. They were able to fit another 13 seats in the packed day chapel and the remaining 41 people stood and sat in the narthex outside the entrance door. Of course, the Hamilton County Fire Marshall has now issued an arrest warrant for Father Saguto.

That is interesting that people are so interested in this rite. I am from Indiana and have contemplated on attending a Latin Mass at Holy Rosary Church. I grew up with the Norvus Ordo Mass and never been exposed to the Latin Mass. Have you been to a Latin Mass? If so, what do you like about it?

I'm from Indiana and I didn't even know there was a latin mass in carmel. I have kind of given up trying to get to Holy Rosary. Just too long a drive for Sunday morning. Carmel might be a little closer.

Sottk, I have attended the Tridentine Latin Mass several times (somewhat reguarly) and I much prefer it to the Novus Ordo.

Some of My Beliefs in relation to the Mass

There is so much tradition and culture in a Extraordinary form converting souls into holy priest. May God let you see the difference from today's washed down Catholic lite Novus Ordos.

I came into the Church in the Novus Ordo, but after attending the TLM a few times, I was hooked. It's so much more conducive to prayer, and the prayers themselves are so much richer and a fuller expression of the Catholic faith.

My advice: don't judge the TLM from a single experience. It is a very different environment and takes time to adjust. But once you make the adjustment it more than pays off. In fact, I think you benefit from it even if it's uncomfortable at first. (But for me it was not uncomfortable.)
