Jensen Beach TLM Seminar

I ran across an article in the Florida Catholic today about a seminar on the Extraordinary Form of the Mass given by Father Marco de Leon. Apparently he has been celebrating the Mass in Jensen this summer. For those of you who thought I knew everything, feel free to be surprised! I had no idea that there was another priest doing this Mass at St. Martin's. Trust that I will be in touch with him very soon! In any event, the article is OK. At least it does not repeat any mistaken ideas about the Mass. The only nit that I would pick is that the bishop's permission is not required for any priest to say a private Mass in the ancient Rite since last summer when Pope Benedict freed up the Mass. Most likely they meant that permission was needed to celebrate the Mass with an invitation to the public. In any case, this is good news for traditional Catholics in our diocese. Let's hope a TLM is started a little closer to West Palm soon.
