Why The Traditional Mass?
The reason is simple. The traditional liturgy is the most faithful liturgical expression that we have of the Truth and the right reverent and humble disposition of man seeking to approach God at the Sacrifice of the Mass. The practices of the traditional liturgy express and teach the Truth coherently.
To consider some important issues inherent in liturgical practice—what we profess, what we teach, and what we learn with and through our actions—consider these observations from Bishop Schneider: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. Read also this article from One Peter Five.

Pray for Priests
We need more priests praying and teaching the traditional Mass.
Invite your priest to learn the Mass!
If you are a priest, please consider learning the Mass. The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP), for example, offer training courses. See fssptraining.org.
If you are studying to become a priest, please learn the Mass.
If you are considering a priestly vocation, please look at the seminaries based in the traditional Mass.
We also invite our episcopacy to consider promoting the traditional Mass, to encourage parish decision-makers to support the Mass, and to encourage priests to learn the Mass and to teach and to pray the Mass. Thank you!
