I Tyskland er det nylig foetatt en undersøkelse blant katolikker (2611 personer over 18 år er spurt – dessverre er det bare 10% av disse som går i messen hver uke eller hver måned) hva de syns om den tradisjonelle latiske messen, og de viser seg å være svært positive.

Et av spørsmålene de har fått er:
Dersom messen blir feiret på latin, med gregoriansk sang og i sin ekstraordinære form i DIN menighet, uten å skyve bort den ordinære messen feiret på tysk, ville du delta?

Katolikker som går i messen ukentlig eller månedlig svarer:
* 25% at de vil delta hver uke
* 19% en gang i måneden
* 9% på store helligdager
* 40% av og til
* 7% aldri

Fra Rorate cæli – og under er flere av spørsmålene gjengitt:

Here are the poll’s results. We are glad to offer them to the Holy Father to symbolically mark the fifth anniversary of his election to the Holy See.

Question # 1: Do you attend Mass?

Weekly: 5.9%
Monthly: 4.1%
On Holy Days: 18.9%
Occasionally (e.g. for weddings): 42.3%
Never: 28.8%

Question # 2: In July 2007, Pope Benedict XVI restated that the Mass could be celebrated both in its modern, “ordinary,” or “Paul VI” form–i.e. in German, with the priest facing the faithful, communion received standing–and in its traditional, “extraordinary,” or “John XXIII” form–i.e. in Latin and Gregorian chant, with the priest turned towards the altar, communion received kneeling. Were you aware of this?

Yes: 43.1%
No: 56.9%

Question # 3: Would you consider it normal or abnormal for both liturgical forms to be regularly celebrated in YOUR parish?

Normal: 50.6 %
Abnormal: 24.5 %
No opinion: 24.9 %

Question # 4: If Mass were celebrated with Latin and Gregorian chant in its extraordinary form in YOUR parish, without taking the place of the ordinary one in German, would you attend it?

Answers from those who practice regularly (weekly and monthy)
25% would attend weekly
19% once a month
9% for Holy Days
40% occasionally
7% never
