A few quotes:
People who disdain the Latin Mass should choose their favorite saint or saints and imagine how they worshiped every Sunday or everyday for that matter.The odd thing is that I am still not a "Traditionalist," if I were suddenly Empress of the World and Grand Pooh Bah of the Church, or at least my parish, my ideal wouldn't be the usus antiquior.
There is nothing the congregation can add to the prayers that the Priest invokes when changing ordinary bread and wine into the actual Body and Blood of Jesus the Christ.
This is a daily miracle, a suspension of all that we deem natural.
this is an event of such awesome magnitude that it calls for nothing BUT silence and strong meditative prayer.
I constantly urge my friends to read the Bible, especially John chapter 6. Not just once. Read it over and over until you get it. This is the center of our universe. This is what we live for. The awesomeness is indescribable. Of course [there] must be silence.
There was an observation made that in days gone by people did not understand the words of the Mass but at least they knew clearly what was happening on the altar before them and now people CAN understand the words, but seem to have no idea of what is actually happening at Mass. It's time we relearn. Do it in memory of Him.
But until its equal, in reverence and beauty and freedom from nonsense and solemnity and order exists AND IS AVAILABLE TO ALL on a regular basis -- well, how can you not be in sympathy with the Trads?
