However, this doesn't change the fact that these kinds of rumors have definite and real causes. In the case of EWTN it is well known that a number of priests belonging to the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word were formally trained to offer the Traditional Latin Mass, but to date not a single one of them has actually done so for broadcast.
What is the reason for this?
I've attempted to contact EWTN and have written two letters asking this very question. My phone call was not returned, and no one at EWTN has yet to answer my letters. However, they do send me various mailings asking for contributions. I figure if they won't answer me, I certainly won't answer them!
I urge you to write EWTN and ask why they do not regularly broadcast the Traditional Latin Mass.
