New TLM Poll from Georgetown

I received the following from the courteous Sister Mary E. Bendyna, RSM.  Please comment on the results!  Follow the link below:

Dear Mr. Arbuckle,

As you may recall, you were in contact with CARA a couple of years ago about the possibility of including questions about the Traditional Latin Mass in one of our surveys.  I just wanted to let you know that we were able to include questions very similar to those you were interested in in a poll we conducted in 2008 and have just released the results.  The press release is posted on our website at  The findings suggest that fewer Catholics have an opinion about the Mass than was the case when the Gallup poll asked about it in 1985.  I suspect that this is largely a function of many fewer Catholics having any recollection or experience of the Traditional Latin Mass than was the case in 1985.

I hope you find this information helpful.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Sister Mary
