Did Pope Francis Wreck the Mass? No!

Three priests at altar performing New Mass. One has clown makeup.

The problems which plague the Catholic Church predate the rise of Bergoglio to the Chair of Peter by a generation at least.  Is the Latin Mass under threat?  Yes.  Is the Novus Ordo Mass beset with flaws and subject to all manner of abuse?  Yes.

Is it the fault of Pope Francis?  Nope.

Check out this very informative video by Michael J. Matt.  He lays out the problem very well…

Liturgical Gimmickry

Balloon masses.

Clown masses.

Hootenanny/Rock Band/Jazz Band masses.

Liturgical dancing.

Not exactly the same image as the description of King David dancing before the Ark of the Covenant, is it?

And, unfortunately, guess who was presiding at the Mass?

Hey!  Liturgical “Innovators!”  Know what might be fun?  How ’bout doing a Mass where it is a supernatural event wherein God Himself is made present (Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity) among us?  And everyone actually behaves as if that’s really happening?  Wouldn’t that be a novelty?  Whadd’ya think?
