Virginians petition bishop to restore TLM

Supporters of the Traditional Latin Mass have petitioned Bishop Michael Burbidge of Arlington, Virginia to lift restrictions he recently imposed on the celebration of the sacraments in the Extraordinary Form, saying in part, “In the spirit of the Synodal Path that the church has embarked upon, we humbly ask that you engage in consultations with the faithful of each parish church potentially affected by restrictions on the Traditional Latin Mass.”
