Low Mass at St. Peter's Church in Steubenville, Ohio, was likewise beautiful, awe-inspiring. I would estimate 200 - 300 attendees most Sundays now.
I have a much easier time saying the new form of "and with (your spirit)" as a response when the priest is looking at the cross instead of looking at me.It irritated me when they changed the wording -as if Peace be with you and our response was "and also with you" wasn't enough or equivalent. I felt suddenly like a 2nd class citizen. Now? as they are facing the alter? I can SEE WHY "...and with your spirit" would be ok to do. They're priests. Its changes everything.Still having a hard time w/the latin though. That's just me and 40 years of english.
This is my Parish, which my wife and I love and feel blessed to be a part of. Father Bouchard our priest is a very Holy man of God, I would recommend anyone in the Cleveland, Youngstown or Pittsburgh area who has a penchant for the TLM stop by and visit our chapel.
