An apology to eccentrics. In my comments to the Tablet I say that the Tridentine Mass now belongs to the mainstream of Catholic life. It quotes me as saying: "This is not something for the eccentrics". I wouldn`t want it thought that I am excluding eccentrics from the benefits of SummorumPontificum. What I probably meant to say was something like the 1962 missal is not just for eccentrics. If you are eccentric and thinking of coming to the Latin Mass but are worried you might get a frosty reception please be assured that this will not be the case.
