KU Latin Mass

The Lawrence Journal World has an article on the Revival of the old Latin Mass offered last Sunday at the KU Catholic student center. Fr. Steven Beseau, the Catholic Chaplain, is quoted:
It’s certainly more of a transcendent experience,” Beseau says. “There’s something mysterious, a greater contact with the divine in the traditional Latin Mass. That’s not to say that doesn’t happen in the new Mass, but the focus is more about a community gathered and not on God.”

Beseau says the Mass may become a regular occurrence, if there’s enough interest.

“Most older people have an aversion to the Latin Mass. They see it as a reversion to their childhood,” Beseau says. “Young people are very open to it. They’re very curious.”
