Why the Tridentine Mass is still maginalised in Malta

All too many traditional Catholics, be it priests, seminarians and lay people, even in Malta, hole up in some chapel somewhere, all self-centered, without reaching out to the others to share with them the gift of the Catholic Faith, the Tridentine Mass, and the Sacraments. This catacomb mentality has to stop.

It is as if some traditional Catholics want to keep these gifts only for themselves. Such stinginess is quite sinful and in direct contradiction to the teaching of Jesus Christ and His Apostles. We have a duty to reach out to others. We could be in many ways God's chosen agent to convert souls through our example and sharing. After all, we will have to answer too when our judgement comes.
