Destigmatize the Extraordinary Form
The Tablet (please accept my apologies for mentioning it) has carried an article about the English Benedictines Congregation holding an Extraordinary General Chapter to consider the declining number of vocations. It was preceded by by a forum which included younger monks and nuns from the 13 communities that make up the EBC. Various papers were produced by these younger community members attending the forum, and these were later considered by the General Chapter.
The paper on the subject of liturgy included the assertion that there was a need to destigmatize the Extraordinary Form. The message from younger Benedictines seem to be: If you want more monks and nuns, have more Tridentine Masses.
