The One Hundred Mark

The numbers at Sunday Low Mass continue to increase steadily. Last Sunday, the 3rd Sunday of Lent, it went above one hundred people. Attendence is counted at every Mass at the Oratory, and I will perhaps analyse some of the figures to show some effect of Summorum Pontificum in preparation for the three-year report which will be submitted to Rome. Considering this Mass started out as 15-20 people in a separate chapel, I think this is certainly a sign of renewal in the traditional Mass. It is also encouraging to always see new faces, and more families coming. I find, myself with a young family, the Latin Low Mass is a real haven of spirituality which can nurture in a child the sense of the sacred space which Mass should be about. Besides the sermon, people aren't listening out for what's being said or what's going on - it is about prayer which I think helps us to be less distracted by every little noise.
