I just read those posts "I'm Back From Columbus." So sad, but it's so widespread. I am part of a Youth Group where we have some of the same problems, but to a much lesser degree. They have good intentions, of course...but I'm trying to introduce Traditionalism slowly. I plan to invite some of them to the Latin Mass in the near future. Please pray for my success. ;)
