The purpose of this blog is to provide an open forum for discussion of the aims of the society; news from the wider Church and details of Masses and events of interest in the diocese. The Latin Mass Society in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Middlesbrough expresses its full filial devotion and loyalty to Holy Mother Church, Pope Francis and Bishop Drainey.

Interesting Opinion Poll in Germany

Paix Liturgique have engaged Harris Interactive (a very respected polling organisation) to conduct an opinion poll in Germany. Here are some of the results.

The following question was put to practising Catholics:

If Mass were celebrated in the Extraordinary Form in YOUR parish, would you attend:

Weekly 25%
Monthly 19%
Holy Days 9%
Occasionally 40%
Never 7%

These are truely remarkable figures. 93% of practicing catholics would apparently attend the older rite at least occasionally. 44% at least monthly.

Another question asked;

Are you aware of the provisions of Summorum Pontificum?

Yes 43.1%
No 56.9%

I presume that these replies relate only to practising Catholics. If this is the case, it comes as no surprise to me. If the same question was put to practising Catholics in England, I doubt whether 10% would be able to answer yes.

There is a fuller report on this survey on the blog, Rorate Caeli.
