Poll Closed

There are only a few hours left to the poll but I'll post the results here (since I'm not sure if Blogger will delete the poll forever or not):

If You Got Hooked on the Tridentine Mass Right Away, Are You Also Into:

Medieval/Renaissance Art
13 (72%)
Castles and Old Cathedrals
13 (72%)
Knighthood and Chivalry
12 (66%)
Meditative Poetry
2 (11%)
5 (27%)
Other (and I'll leave a comment)
2 (11%)

Vote on this poll

18 people voted and the results were what I anticipated. I think the Tridentine Mass is a natural fit for people who love art and traditions from the Medieval and Renaissance period.

Some people look at the Tridentine (or as Pope Benedict XVI has referred to it, the Gregorian Rite) as a step backwards. I look at it as a reclamation of our faith.

Thanks to everyone who participated.

All it lacked to be complete, for me, was an indication of musical preference - Gregorian Chant, sacred Polyphony - NOT the St Louis Jesuits, ad nauseum...

Laura..ha! Sorry about that. I've never heard of the St. Louis Jesuits but I adore Gregorian Chant. :-)

Mary Rose - think Marty Haugen, David Haas, Don Schutte, Cary Landry, et al... "On Eagles Wings," "Taste and See," "We Are the Body of Christ," and any other us-centered songs squeaking by as "hymns" in modern hymnals. ;)
