Where the church in America’s headed

From Ad Orientem: the Archdiocese of New York, historically the American church’s powerhouse (Cardinal Spellman’s chancery was the Powerhouse), ordained one priest this year. But his first Mass was Tridentine High. More.

Pope Benedict’s smaller, sounder, fighting-trim church, not the dominant cultural Catholicism of the New York of yore nor the ‘renewal’ nonsense that destroyed it (all the liberals are old now).

70 years ago New York got so many vocations (lots of sons of big immigrant families) that the seminary, Dunwoody, deliberately flunked out a percentage of them.

No more Novus in 20 years? Great!

Veni, creator Spiritus...
