Although I do not subscribe to The Tablet, I am always interested to see what it has to say on matters concerning the Latin Mass. I discovered that last week's edition included three letters (including one from myself) on the subject, all of which were highly critical of the policy coming from the Pope Francis and the Vatican of attempting to extinguish the Mass that so many of us love. The letters are reproduced below.

The following are extracts from the sermon given in St Peter's Basilica by Pope Francis on the Feast of the Epiphany:
"Have we been stuck all too long, nestled inside a conventional, external and formal religiosity that no longer warms our hearts and changes our lives?"
"Do our words and our liturgies ignite in people's hearts a desire to move towards God, or are they a 'dead language' that speaks only of itself and to itself?"
It seems that Pope Francis is continuing to deride the Latin Mass, and is now doing so in his sermons.
