"Hence, seeing ponytails serving at the altar; Communion in the hand; the weight of the Liturgical Committees; the removal of statuary; the USCCB yearly tweaking of the Mass (”kneel here now ... no wait, don’t kneel now - stand, no wait, kneel and stand at the same time, NO NO NO, do jumping jacks, oh just forget the whole thing and lets just bow down to Mecca”); and the ambiguity of some of the statements originating from wall of silence / individuals in high places in Rome are disconcerting in a very alarming way."

I really like the above comment of yours, trollcrusher!

Thank you for the kind comment.

I’m glad that you found credence in my observation / opinion.

Oh, I forgot to mention in my previous post (probably just above this one), that with regard to your “inner locution” or “feeling” in which to pray for Priests following the young men sitting in the pew ahead of you at Mass, indeed that is a G-O-O-D thing. Accept it as a Grace.

The Church is in dire need of new, holy Priests.

Here is a small prayer that I pray every day (or multiple times throughout the day) for Priests. I’ve modified it from the original prayer that I heard years ago, so it is a bit more in tune with the situation going on right now in the Church:

God our Father,
Please send the Church, holy and faithful Priests.
All for the Sacred and Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.
All for the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
In union with St. Joseph, Guardian of the Holy Family and of the Holy Roman Catholic Church.


I like to think that it helps.

Take care,
