Bonfire of the Vanities: Well, the pope done did it!


  1. Henri Young says

    Myself, my daughter Honor and other members of the Society of Pious XII will not be satisfied until the pope renounces Vatican II and the standard rite.

  2. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

  3. Rufus McCain says

    Quin, there may be a new niche for latin tutors here. Maybe you should quit three of your jobs and just focus on that. You could call your school Academia Motu Proprio (or whatever the correct latin would be). Start targeting parish priests throughout Western WA. You just need to stir up thirty people in each parish to ask for the mass and then follow that up by dropping off a brochure and your business card at the parish office.

  4. The Ironic Catholic says

    I still think you can order it at the Olive Garden.

  5. Theocoid says


  6. Henri Young says

    Standard Rite at Olive Garden, Tridentine Mass at Lombardi’s.

  7. angelmeg says

    The parish where I used to work is cheering. They even have the communion rail already in place.

    Why do they assume that the first ten years of poorly done Latin masses will be any better than the really strange novus ordo masses?

    I am just waiting for the Tridentine Clown Liturgy, Oh yeah, it will come.
