SP December 1, 2007

Latin Home Coming for Catholic Priest
On Sunday, Dec. 9, Roberto Cano is coming home to St. Boniface, the church of his youth. The son of Augusto and Rita Cano and graduate of Central Catholic High School in Lafayette, Roberto is returning as Father Cano, FSSP, ordained to the priesthood in November by Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz of the Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska.
But this will be no ordinary homecoming. It will be extraordinary, as in the extraordinary form of the Roman Rite.

TLM Altar requirements
What are the actual requirements for a Tridentine altar. What is the absolute bare minimum needed, what is the standard, and what are some unusally though legal extras?
I want to know if TLM could be said at our existing Novus Ordo-style altar, or what changes would need to be made to it to allow the celebration of a TLM.
