Dear Editor: At the daily Traditional Latin Mass, the bell would ring, the priest comes to the altar, you would open your missal and silently begin with him. When it was over, the prayers after Mass were said asking St. Michael to help us fight the Devil.
Before leaving, you light a beeswax candle, letting problems ascend. No music, homily, cell phone, talking … only the realization that you have just attended in silence “The Most Beautiful Thing This Side of Heaven.”
