Feel free to start your own Church and join the thousands of already existing protestant churches. Make yourself the Pope if you want.
Thats very edgy of you. How was high school this week?
Ah a reference to high school again. Different poster, same insult.
No, thanks. I’m a real Catholic.
The liturgical reform, in its concrete realization, has distanced itself even more from its origin. The result has not been a reanimation, but devastation. In place of the liturgy, fruit of a continual development, they have placed a fabricated liturgy. They have deserted a vital process of growth and becoming in order to substitute a fabrication.They did not want to continue the development, the organic maturing of something living through the centuries, and they replaced it, in the manner of technical production, by a fabrication, a banal product of the moment.
What happened after the Council was altogether different: instead of a liturgy fruit of continuous development, a fabricated liturgy was put in its place. A living growing process was abandoned and the fabrication started. There was no further wish to continue the organic evolution and maturation of the living being throughout the centuries and they were replaced -- as if in a technical production -- by a fabrication, a banal product of the moment. Gamber, with the vigilance of a true visionary and with the fearlessness of a true witness, opposed this falsification and tirelessly taught us the living fullness of a true liturgy, thanks to his incredibly rich knowledge of the sources. As a man who knew and who loved history, he showed us the multiple forms of the evolution and of the path of the liturgy; as a man who saw history from the inside, he saw in this development and in the fruit of this development the intangible reflection of the eternal liturgy, which is not the object of our action, but which may marvelously continue to blossom and to ripen, if we join its mystery intimately.
Great post. Thanks!
If Cardinal Ratzinger consistently and over time insisted on labeling the Novus Ordo liturgy a “banal, on the spot fabrication” how can anyone in their right mind criticize those who prefer the Traditional Latin Mass?
I really don’t know. And it’s disappointing that our current Pope is one of those critics.
Very perceptive of you. Catholic High School, of course. In fact, I am guilty of arrested development (in terms of modernism) at about 1960.
I’m sure you are.
Maybe you should have become a priest and maybe then you could have been the Pope and people would care what you had to say.
Maybe you should become a real Catholic. And maybe then Catholics would care what you had to say. Right now, I sure don’t.
You’re obviously incredibly Catholic and not a protestant at all, so why didn’t you become a Priest??
Thanks for the compliment. Are you a priest, yourself?
If not, why not?
If Benedict really believed that the NO was banal and a fabrication, why did he allow it to continue in the Church....as the ordinary form?
Care to quote that criticism? Once you do, I'll give you some of Pope Benedict's criticisms of Bugnini's Mass.
“And the Catholic Church used to wield the Sword of Truth.....totally emasculated now with Socialism”
Please provide links.
When Pope Francis says the Catholic Church believes in homosexual “marriage”, abortion on demand, and women priests you can start calling him another Obama. Until that happens please don’t compare this man to Obama. It just sounds silly.
His views are identical to Benedict, only the style is different. Benedict said you had to have special permission to exclusively do the Old Mass. New Mass is the preferred Mass, and that’s from Benedict.
