I wonder, and I speak for myself .....how it is that those who find their spiritual fruit in the Traditional Latin Mass, the Extraordinary Form of the Latin Rite, do not have "religious freedom" to worship fully in the manner in which we see fit? Why must we settle for anything less than the full battery of the seven sacraments? Why are we being made to feel as second class citizens when all we want to do is worship as the Saints did, as our parents did and, what is ultimately, what our conscious tells us to do?
His Holiness Benedict XVI stated, "What earlier generations held as sacred remains sacred and great for us too, and it cannot be all of a sudden entirely forbidden or even considered harmful. It behooves all of us to preserve the riches which have developed in the Church's faith and prayer, and to give them their proper place."
Furthermore: "The faithful are entitled to request ALL the Sacraments according to their traditional rites (e.g. baptisms, confirmations, nuptial masses, requiems, etc.)"
We are not the bogey man...we are not schismatic...we are not "radical"... we are normal, hard working, faithful American Catholics who only want to be in communion with Rome and support His Holiness Benedict XVI when he wishes the EFLR be in every parish.
Then what of "religious freedom"?
