Sanctuary of Christ the King, Göteborg

Went to Mass here yesterday. They do coffee and sandwiches afterwards which is an excellent thing as it helps bring people together.

Pity about the language problem. My own Swedish is rudimentary, but with so many different nationalities coming here, it is a case of "united we stand..."

Same thing in Brighton. The Polish people have their own Mass and the church is too small for them - we should not be separating like this. Sometimes we have visiting priests who struggle to say Mass in English, so why should they be expected to and why should congregations have to put up with hearing their native language massacred?

The need to spread the use of Latin in the liturgy has never been greater.
