World-Famous Chapel at MIT Crammed with Students
About 150 young people squeezed into the interfaith chapel at Massachusetts Institute of Technology on February 9, some standing in the aisles and in the vestibules, for the Tech Catholic Communitys first-ever Traditional Latin Mass.
This chapel does not exactly fit the profile of a traditional Catholic place of worship, to put it mildly, said Jim Mc Glone, Harvard 15, of JuvBosM, which organized the TLM. Nevertheless, with some advance scouting we judged that the chapel could accommodate a Solemn High Mass, and photographic evidence now shows that this space can indeed be transformed into a beautiful and fitting place for the Mass of the ages. In the end, 150 came to that Mass, mostly students who had never seen a TLM before.

love it! and not so weird to me... one of the things i loved about Star Trek The Next Generation was all the references to classical education... it was something my young sons could relate to when we had them watch on DVD several years after the series ended...
