Traditional Latin Mass

In "Jolly Old England," a dispute has risen in Father Tim Finigan's parish, Our Lady of the Rosary, Blackfen. Those that resist the Traditional Latin Mass, and those that don't, have split his parish.
He has written a defense entitled, "Sacred and Great." He hopes to turn it into a book. But for now, you can read it on his site: http://the-hermeneutic-of-continuity.blogspot.com
It really is a sensible and rational approach to TLM. I really don't see what all the hullabaloo is about. Where I grew up we had all kinds of Mass: High Mass, Low Mass, Lithuanian (It was a Lithuanian parish.) All Masses were in Latin but the homily was in Lithuanian. Then we had children's Masses and teen's. Now people complain because Fr. Tim has one Mass TLM.

Holy Mother Church attempts to reach everyone.
