Guido Marini: Latin is the Language of Catholicism

A substantial part of the Mass to be celebrated by Pope Benedict at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow on September 16 will be said in Latin, the Vatican has confirmed.

In an interview with The Herald, published today, Monsignor Guido Marini, the Pope’s master of ceremonies, reveals the Canon and Preface – the most significant parts – will be said in the ancient language.

Mgr Marini said: “For all the Masses said in the UK the Preface and the Canon will be said in Latin. What the Holy Father intends by using Latin is to emphasise the universality of the faith and the continuity of the Church.”

Thanks be to God...

More and more I find myself being compelled to a more traditionalist(1) point of view. It is time for the medley to end.


(1) I do not like this term, it conveys schism. I mean a more orthodox, but that term also has schismatic applications. Alas, the Greeks have undoubtedly a term for it.
