These calculations of diminishing crowds as a basis for judging the need and value of things in the life of the Church, in particular the spiritual treasure of holy Mass, are as shallow and superficial as those who come once and then drop out.
The reason for offering the extraordinary form of holy Mass is that our Holy Father has asked that we make it available along with the ordinary form of holy Mass. Basta.
The superficial you will always have with you.
One soul is of infinite value. One soul at holy Mass is enough for the Lord.
