Liturgy reform: No going back

From an editorial in the December 28, 2007 National Catholic Reporter.
What they have always known in Rome is important for all of us to know: Liturgy is the visible expression of the arrangement of power.

I'll keep that in mind if I see their publication use the term "servant-leader".


  1. That editorial speaks true. Many of the liturgical changes have been to prop of the priest and push back the the laity.

  2. For example, the change from sanctuary to talk show set, from Prayers at the Foot of the Altar to Opening Monologue.

  3. I haven't seen that listed in any of the recent GIRMs.

  4. I'm just reporting the "lived experience".
