Yesterday evening, the Mass in the Extraordinary Form (is that right?…..) was celebrated in St. Joseph’s Co-Cathedral in Burlington Vermont. Celebrated by Burlington Bishop Salvatore Matano.  The church was apparently packed – as you can see from the video, and you might want to take a look a the television news report  here. Kudos for reporter for describing things accurately – the priests facing the same way as the people, not with his back to ’em, for example. The most shocking thing about the video was the clip from the bishop’s homily – of course I can’t be sure what the context is, but in the clip he says – rather strongly – “If this is what it takes to fill our churches – so be it.”
