Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Reasons Why the Traditional Latin Mass is Awesome

I love the Traditional Latin Mass. I do not have the privilege of being able to attend on a weekly basis because the nearest one is almost two hours away. When I do go, like I did this past Easter, it is always a breath of fresh air for me. I love it so much that I am going to express why I love the Latin Mass in 10 memes for your personal enjoyment. Here they are:

  2. great post, brother. I do not really dig the Western Rites anymore after having converted to Orthodoxy, but when they are done right, pardon the pun, they are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
