It is truly unbelievable. I currently have a review of the article by Bp. Herzog of Alexandria La. on "Sing To The Lord" which breaks new ground in advancing an agenda.

Tell this to the thousands of Youth involved in Juventutem. You will get thousands of replies in the contrary to the one you presented. I have yet to attend a traditional Mass where the young are not present in significant numbers. Complete with mantillas (for the ladies), rosaries in hand and obviously joyfully filled with the Spirit of God. This is not a "fad".Chironomohttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13024533507945352862noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-53079268083420073692008-07-11T09:38:00.000-04:002008-07-11T09:38:00.000-04:00This may be a new tactic...

The jist of the article is that teens interested in the Traditional Mass and in Traditional devotions may be "worshiping the liturgy" rather than worshiping God. Yes, that's what they are proposing. Then, the even more absurd claim is made that this might chip away at gains that have been made in evangelizing Youth with music and worship that "speaks to them"... honestly, I'm not kidding...the TLM is now being equated with the Golden Calf in Exodus. Will they stop at nothing?Chironomohttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13024533507945352862noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-5572394094727507142008-07-11T01:29:00.000-04:002008-07-11T01:29:00.000-04:00Not at all sure that Collins isn't right.

We have to give them a more meaningful religious vision than that!<BR/><BR/>I found this on another site:<BR/><BR/>"Honestly, what is so great about the Latin Mass? We have a couple opportunities for the Latin Mass in our diocese which are very poorly attended. The reason is, 95% of Catholics don't want it, understand it or see a need for it. While the Latin Mass may be a very Sacred and moving thing for a small group of people, most really don't see a need for it or understand why it is such a big deal. Personally, while the Latin Mass was meaningful and appropriate at one time, I don't think it is worth the energy trying to make it something that everyone should love and demand. The truth is they don't. I don't think Jesus wanted the Sacredness of the Last Supper and his offering of Himself in the Eucharist to become something so complicated, so distant, so removed from people and commemorated in a language that no one understands or speaks. Jesus spoke simply and directly. He used liturgical symbols, gestures and words that didn't need too much explanation. "Noble Simplicity" Keep the most important thing, keeping the most important thing, the most important thing."Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
