“The altar is situated in such a way for Mass to be celebrated either way.”
What a shame. Will this Conciliar nonsense ever end?
While the business about the good, the true, and the beautiful is quite fashionable among Conciliarists, the hard truth is that truth is often quite ugly and brutal, the good is often hidden in ugliness, and the beautiful isn’t always true or good. Let’s grow up. Let’s abandon this kind of wretched sentimentality.
The above was contributed to my combox for the post picturing the interior of our new church at Our Lady of the Rosary parish. I’m not sure quite what to make of it because I’m not certain of all the seemingly inside loaded language. What, for instance, is a ‘Conciliarist’? I am assuming that this is traddy slang for a person who thinks the Second Vatican Council is okay. Also, the writer seems to think it is ‘nonsense’ to even consider that Mass might be celebrated facing the people.
What a shame that these people who pretend to be Catholics insist on foisting innovations like Mass in the vernacular and celebrating facing the people on all us real Catholics who know that such things are Protestant heresies infiltrating our liturgy.
Let’s get rid of this sickening ‘beauty’ stuff and make our religion just as sour, negative, pessimistic, nasty and bitter as I am.
