I was cheered, yesterday evening, by a little video showing lovely young people from Europe and beyond asking Pope Francis and the bishops not to suppress the Traditional Latin Mass. As Pope Francis doesn’t understand English wonderfully well (as I noted on a BBC documentary), I told Benedict Ambrose it was a pity they didn’t speak Spanish instead.
“English is the universal language of the world,” harrumphed B.A. or words that he will tell me later today he actually said.
If some enterprising filmmaker really wants to wring hearts, they should do a similar project with young married people and their tiny children. Every time I see a new big young family at Mass, I am utterly delighted.
