The Tablet


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.

I would encourage readers who want to defend the Latin Mass to use every opportunity to promote the cause.  Writing to the Tablet is one way of doing this.
