THE VIEW FROM MY WORLD
There has been much talk for it and against it. Those that are for it will say there was such a beauty and a mystery to the old rite and those that are against it will say but we you couldn't understand what was going on and it seemed like the Mass was for the priest and not the faithful. Well, one of my Franciscan brothers reminded me that you really can't say that there was something wrong with the rite that was used for about 400 years. Yes. there is a beauty to the old rite and I do love Gregorian Chant (which I did have at my Ordination Mass). I believe that Pope Benedict is tackling this issue because he is a reconciling pope. His a pope that wants to bring us together and it should interesting to see what happens after Saturday. Until then polish up on those "et cum spiritu tuo's."
