It’s only two points in time, but over the past twenty-four years, support for the traditional Latin Mass has dropped 38%. The actual report from CARA is here.
I know there are hopes that a revived traditionalism will invigorate Catholic liturgy, if not Catholic culture. Personally, I think it’s a vain hope. I think the energy spent on the TLM would be better utilized to improve preaching and music across the board. I also can’t see how the TLLM (Low Mass) has anything whatsoever to offer the Catholic liturgical sensibility. If CARA or Gallup asked me, I suppose I’d be in favor of banning the Low Mass, and retaining the High Mass for those who wanted it.
