The TLM debate
How does a Latin Mass (or any Mass) “save” our soul? These are a means to an end, not the end in itself for bringing about the kingdom. On judgment day, it will call for our concrete acts of love. Let’s focus on what Jesus taught us, separate the wheat from the empire.
“What we have here is failure to communicate.” To understand ecclesiology. TLM is not a howitzer to be used to destroy Vatican II. The Church has 6 rites and 24 churches within those rites Liturgy is celebrated differently in many. Have we lost sight of Gaudium Spes?
There is nothing to say the Western rite can’t have multiple churches like the other rites take the Constantinopolitan rite has 14 churches all based on cultural experience The Alexandrian Rite has 3
And all 24churches have cardinals who vote for the same pope & can be pope.
The question is this: Is the debate about cultural or empirical control?
