Rorate Caeli is reporting on a recent poll taken by the prestigious CSA Institute regarding the opinion of the French people on the Traditional Latin Mass. The French Bishops, who claim to be speaking for the French people are obviously a wee bit out of touch.
1) Do you believe it is desirable that Catholics may have the choice to, according to their sensibility, go to either the Traditional Mass in Latin with Gregorian chant or to the Modern Mass in French?
Do not care: 22%
2) If you had the occasion to occasionally go to a Mass in Latin with Gregorian [chant], what would you say?
I would go: 60%
I would not go: 39%
No answer: 1%
3) In your opinion, the fact that various kinds of celebrations of the Mass, one Traditional, in Latin and with Gregorian [chant], and the other modern in French, may be recognised by the Church would be...?
A good thing, because it allows for some diversity within the Church: 65%
A bad thing, because it risks provoking divisions within the Church: 31%
No answer: 4%
4) If a Mass in its Traditional form were celebrated, in Latin and with the permission of the Pope, close to your home, you would say...
I would go there frequently: 6%
I would go there occasionally: 31%
I do not know if I would got there or not: 12%
I would rarely go there: 29%
I would never go there: 22%
