Remember….I called it here. See emphasis in bold and red.
I am beginning to be more and more convinced that the problems concerning liturgy go much further than what happens at Mass. I think liturgical deviance from Rome and the enforcement of pseudo liturgy by the liturgical commissariat end up revealing a serious problem with authority, ecclesiology and even sexuality. (Binding us to novelties)
Now get this whopper from this hip-to-it bishop:
“Couples are using artificial contraceptives to limit the size of their families, and sterilization is also becoming a common practice,” he observed. “Families think they have the number of children they want, and then close off any further openness to life that God might want to bring into their family.”…
“In this time of great confusion, catechesis suffered. We booted the Baltimore Catechism out the door, but there wasn’t anything to replace it,” he continued. “I was taught the faith in Catholic schools using materials that were weak and insubstantial. I wasn’t being taught my faith. The liturgy suffered from experimentation as well.”
“My generation raised up the next generation. Since we weren’t taught the faith, we raised children who weren’t either,” he added.
As a remedy, the bishop called for a renewal of catechesis and the promotion of Pope Benedict’s XVI efforts towards liturgical reform. “If we can get catechesis and the liturgy right, we’ll be well on our way to the renewal and growth of the Church for which we hope,” he said.
Didjuz catch that? Didjuz? The bishop linked the problems with contraception (and the culture of perverse sex and death) with the problem with the liturgy. The Holy Spirit is moving in the Church…because we are all starting to connect the dots.
And once we connect the dots and remove the mask, the Devil is going to be put to flight, along with the banjos and the beachballs at Mass.
You can all thank me for pointing this out now. Ahem.
