Misconceptions about the Extraordinary Form of the Mass

Some people think that the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite (known as the "Tridentine Rite" or the "Traditional Latin Mass") is "meant for those who could not make the transition from Latin to English [or other languages] after the Council." Some state that "there is no participation by the people" in it. And some don't believe it "instills the spirit of Christ among us".

One would wish our Cardinal Archbishops would be more charitable towards (and knowledgeable of) a venerable rite of the Church that is hundreds and hundreds of years old! Fr. Z makes a few reserved comments here.
