Trailer for the Extraordinary Form Instructional Video

~Yesterday, after the TLM at the Cathedral, Brad of Roman Catholic Vocations and I were discussing the FSSP/EWTN instructional video for the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. Here's the trailer. The introduction by Cardinal Castrillón Hoyos contains the intriguing premise that the E.F. should be celebrated in each parish, even if there is no specific request made a group of the faithful, in order that younger people may become familiar with this rite. Some of the special features include a spiritual explanation of the Mass. When my boys were training to be altar servers for the E.F., the spiritual explanation given by our pastor brought tears to my eyes. It was like discovering our native land that we didn't know we belonged to.

If you are a priest or seminarian in North America, the video is available to you for free.
