Archbishop Levada and the Latin Mass

Father John Rizzo is the leader of Sacramento, California's Latin Mass community. He was asked about Archbishop Levada's position on the Latin Mass in this 1998 interview. Here is what Fr. Rizzo had to say:

"We met with Archbishop Levada. He said, much to our surprise, that he has not received much in the way of inquiries or support for those who are interested in the Latin Mass. He said that if he heard more of an interest then he would get something going. But he told us at this point, that he's heard no interest in this regard. So, I don't know-- if more people there were expressing an interest, then perhaps something could get off the ground."
