Ah yes - coetus - that "stable group" that is required for a Mass to take place in its Extraordinary Form. Well, we had a pretty dang good coetus last night at St. Leo's. In addition, we have a third singer now, a soprano, for next month's EF. Keep this up and we'll have enough of a schola where the pastor will make it High Mass. I like the direction this Mass is going, turnout wise.

Reading Damian Thompson's latest post on English Bishops resisting Summorum Pontificum, has me thinking of my own definition of a "stable group", coming right from the mouth of Our Lord Jesus Christ:

Wherever two or three are gathered in my name, there I am in their midst.

Yup - my definition of a "stable group" or coetus: "two or three". Jesus himself has said so.
