There was a period of exile and wandering in the desert. There was discerning and searching and then he landed in a diocese among the vineyards. It was an ordinary parish, a little farther along in the reform. Chant and polyphony lived alongside some of the modern aberrations. They were installing an altar rail along with a new Baldacchino, and they had an Extraordinary Form Missa Cantata every Sunday. There were a few heterodox crying in the distance, but by and large, the parishioners were happy, and open for more. And then came Advent 2017. With a “Rorate” Mass celebrated by Candlelight, a sung vespers presided over happily by the Bishop, and then a week spent learning the intricacies of a Solemn High Mass, men who had little experience with Latin or chant suddenly celebrated a Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary Form on the feast of the doubter, St. Thomas. Here was a parish that said a profound “Yes.” And the people displayed very broad smiles as they inched toward the mysterium tremendum of Christmas.
