People have asked me to discuss this issue, which I've written a book about, so I decided to make it into a bonus episode. (This episode is my appearance on Roger McCaffrey's Catholic Book Radio podcast.)
Ever since the "liturgical reform" of 1969-70, which yielded the modern Mass with which nearly all Catholics are familiar, Catholic traditionalists have urged the return of the traditional Latin Mass -- for reasons of theology, piety, tradition, beauty, and the like.
The issue was not one of language -- the new Mass can also be said in Latin. The issue was the rite itself, which had never been changed wholesale and by committee.
