1985

In 1985 men such as Americans Bernard Law and Roger Mahoney received promotions in the Church. Also, 1985 was a pretty hot year for abuse in Buffalo, NY. Meanwhile, faithful Catholics were treated as second class citizens. The following was posted by Una Voce, the Traditional Latin Mass Society for Buffalo, NY:
Back in 1985, the Diocese of Buffalo, granted 4 Traditional Latin Masses to be said a year, on a Saturday afternoon. 

Before each of these Latin Masses, everyone attending, was made to fill out one of these surveys. 

This practice was probably used to intimidate those in attendance, but at the first Mass, we had over 600 people show up!

So many showed up, had to move the Mass from St. John Neumann chapel, to the main church.

In 1990, we were finally granted a Sunday Mass at St. Vincent de Paul, and no longer were required to fill this out.

Through the grace of God, we have 3 Latin Masses in Buffalo, and are growing and thriving. Praise be Jesus Christ.

  1. Not many know that the Latin Roman Missal of 1962 is not the Latin Roman Missal in existence before 1962. This was the stepping stone if you will of converting Catholics from Catholicism into the new religion of Modernism. They were deceived like their poor English brothers when Crammer incrementally but systematically changed the liturgy so that one day you were Catholic and the next day you were Anglican without even noticing.
