*For a little levity, a good friend of mine facetiously proposed a Society of St. Pius I (SSPI) some years ago (if you have the slightest notion of "Trad" history over the last 30 years, you'll get the humor immediately), so in honor of the patron saint of this fledgling society, have a read and a good laugh. I don't think the Current Tridentine Ordo would cut it for them! By the way, said friend gave me a rare copy of the so-called purist Greek Missal to boot - another topic for another day.
