The Old Rite Blossoms in the Holy Land

João Silveira writes on PaixLiturgique.fr (January 21) after a December 2019 visit to the Holy Land that the Old Mass is well-established in Jerusalem.

There has been for two years now one Old Dominican Rite Sunday Mass at 8.30 in the Austrian Hospice in the Old City, and also at least three weekday masses. The participants are from America, Brazil, France, Germany, England. All of them are young.

Silveira met different pilgrim groups of the Society of St Pius X (SSPX) and old rites pilgrims from Canada, France, Singapur and Japan. SSPX is allowed to say mass everywhere.

There are also many religious and diocesan priests in the Holy Land, who often celebrated the Old Rite.

Silveira mentions, for instance, the youngest priest belonging to a rather modern abbey, who often celebrates the Old Mass, a future Franciscan who plans to do the same, and a group of contemplative sisters who follow the old liturgy.

He also met the “Green People”, a German missionary community that is officially called Agnus Dei who are very attached to the traditional liturgy.

The Christian Information Centre at Jaffa Gate which co-ordinates Catholic Mass information, knew of nowhere that regularly celebrates the TLM but suggested asking at the Austrian Hospice. The Austrian Hospice didn't know of any Old Mass being celebrated there. It's true that there are some masses in the Latin language around Jerusalem but in my experience they're usually Novus Ordo Latin masses rather than TLM.

I call this place, and could not get a straight answer about the TLM.
