Extraordinary Form of the Mass
July 29, 2021
Rumours have been circulating that Pope Francis is planning some kind of restriction on the Extraordinary Form of the Mass (EF), the “Traditional Mass”. This form of the liturgy clearly still has opponents in the Church. Its supporters regard it as, potentially, being a key driver of the Church’s revival, because of the counter-cultural zeal

Those who want the Latin Mass “only wish to be part of that ‘great orchestra’ of ‘unity in variety’ which, as Pope Francis said, reflects the true catholicity of the Church.” Many with leadership roles in the Church are keen to exclude them.

The international fellowship Una Voce asks Pope Francis to protect the Latin Mass from bishops and others who want to restrict or suppress it. They pointed to its growth around the world and its appeal to all sorts of Catholics, especially families with children. The Latin Mass should remain part of the "unity in variety" Pope Francis has called for.
