Maybe you are constrained by such a short space to say something about this author

I looked him up on the Web. You'll probably come away with the same impression I did. We go to the Tridentine Mass on Sundays and big feasts. Daily in whatever's around. We miss Benedict as well. Francis does not appear to be actively hostile to the old Mass, but seems willing to promote men who are.

I know the Franciscan Immaculata. They have been undergoing a Latin-English split for years, probably young-versus-old. I only know the Traditional guys. I think it's important for today's traditional priests to be well-rounded, sociable, confident, with a sense of humor, and able to speak to the common man—like St. Thomas Aquinas. It's the best strategy for saving souls.

Not sure how you can instill well-roundedness at the seminary level, they need to be well-rounded before they get there. Having a great personality is a good addition to having a vocation.
