"In loving Me, you come to know of My Truth, and the more you know, the more intolerable pain and sorrow you will feel when I am offended. - Jesus to St. Catherine of Siena
If only Catholics were taught this simple truth! The charm and value of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman rite is that it is not endlessly tinkered with and is obviously, in its celebration, the work of God. It belongs to the Church, not to the parish liturgy committee and the priest to do as they please.
You are so right, Barb.
