Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Poll Results

October 15th, 2009, Promulgated by Gen

After several polls to the right of your screen, the following information is in:

  • People prefer the Southern European polyphony of Victoria and Palestrina over the Northern European polyphony of Byrd and Tallis.
  • An overwhelming number of people (85%) feel that Sr. Joan Sobala is the most notorious lay preacher in the diocese. Make that most notorious and not excommunicated lay preacher in the diocese.
  • The vast majority of the readers here are from Our Lady of Victory, the Latin Mass Community and “liturgically neutral” suburban parishes (i.e. “my parish is not here”).
  • And, finally, evidently the sitcom “Friends” is to be avoided like the plague. My vote in the sitcom poll went to Frasier, but I am also quite partial to The Office.

So . . . that means that the ideal Sunday for a Cleansing Fire reader would include an all-day Office marathon, during which a reverent Novus Ordo (i.e. ad orientem and in Latin) would be said at a more centrally-located suburban parish, at which the Missa Brevis of Palestrina would be sung. Sounds excellent, presuming that you can wrench yourselves away from your blog-filled computer screens, away from the Office marathon and into the pews at “St. Whatever Church” for a most inspiring Mass. Maybe if we were at Spiritus Christi or Old St. Mary’s, we could just watch The Office during Mass, thus alleviating the need for transit time.
