Latin at St. Gelasius Church

From an Associated Press story about the restoration of a church in Chicago:
When St. Gelasius is restored, the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, headquartered in Italy, will use it to celebrate the Tridentine mass, which is spoken in Latin. The services will be a stark contrast to the guitar music, drumming and sacred dance many churches use to reach out to their communities.

"I believe it gives people a sense of the mystery of God," said Monsignor Michael Schmitz. "They try to pray, and the Latin and chants and the beautiful music and the vestments -- all the details of the Latin mass gives them the feeling that God is greater than our human heart can think of."
