To the Catholic Sentinel:

Thank you for the excellent and most encouraging reporting of our Archbishop’s celebration of the Tridentine Mass at the Brigittine Priory. This traditional form was certainly worthy of being described as the “most beautiful thing this side of heaven.” 

Archbishop Sample has shown remarkable courage and leadership in offering the Mass in the Traditional form, which has little room for the local improvisations we frequently encounter. Talk about  evangelizing; could there be a more effective tool?

This report, on a most important subject, was very well done and I  hope it leads to many more.

Charles Lane, Astoria

Could there be a more effective tool than the Traditional Latin Mass for evangelization?

Yes, it is called Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel),a blueprint for evangelization in the 21st century,given to us by Bishop Francis.
