Roger Cardinal Mahony is full of it right up to his chin,
I like the Latin Mass because it is reverent, quiet,
peaceful and not open to all kinds of happy-clappy crap,
I am so sick and tired of the constant effort to entertain,
involve, show off, and the constant stimulation of the
novis ordo, our Priest commented in a sermon lately that we need quiet time to listen for the Lord, immediately after the sermon itwas nonstop prayer or music the rest of the Mass, immediately afterwords the visiting started as the mas rush for the doors started, peace and quiet my @#$%^&**, oh you know.
By the way Cardinal, I was born in 1959, so it's not that I cannot accept change, I want it and I need it
The Creative Minority Report
First the bad news. I hope that even the non-traditionalist, non liturgically minded readers of CMR will agree that the following quote from Roger Cardinal Mahony of Loas Angeles reflects a 3rd grade understanding of liturgy and is just plain offensive. Fr. John Zuhlsdorf reports that the Cardinal said this at the Exhibit Hall at the Religious Education Congres.
Ann Scolari: What are your thoughts on the Trindentine mass?There are many things I could say about the previous quote. I could throw quotes from dozens of Popes at you, I can quote Summorum Pontificum, and I can quote Councils all in the effort to pursuade you how utterly un-Catholic is the viewpoint of the Cardinal. But I trust, however, that all Catholics of good will and a fourth grade reading level are already pursuaded.
CardinalMahony: Ann: The Tridentine Mass was meant for those who could not make the transition from Latin to English [or other languages] after the Council. But there is no participation by the people, and I don’t believe that instills the spirit of Christ among us.
The title of this post is Good News Bad News, so you might naturally be wondering, "what is the good news?"
Well February 27th was the Seventy third birthday of the Cardinal. So the good news is that it is a mere 728 days until the Cardinal must submit his resignation. Tick, Tock.
