Nuevo Trad Catholics Revolt

A bunch of old fogey whiners in love with the liturgy of the past want to return all of us kicking and screaming back to the Dark Ages or something. They're angry that the liturgy has changed.

Hey man, Catholicism has progressed.

Critics of the new language are saying that this liturgy is faulted.

Soon they'll say things like it's illicit and they'll form their own society that says the Mass must be the way it was when they were kids. And I'm all like just because something was once that way doesn't mean it has to exist that way forever. It's like these people want to stop the Church from progressing or something.

They're saying the liturgy has been "hijacked" by "deception."

These people! Why are they trying to drag the Church backwards?! We are a 21st century Church. That old liturgy is soooo 20th century. The Mass is a living breathing thing man. You wanna' take us back the Mass of the height of the sex abuse scandal. Is that what you want?

Oh the lamentations of, "I remember when I was a kid the liturgy...blah blah blah..." and the whining about why did everything have to change because everything was so (insert blahs here.)

All these Nuevo Trad Catholics want to force us all into the way way back machine. I mean, why not just have the Mass the same as it was in the 70's or something.

I know Father Standup Comedian had a heck of a laugh from the mangled responses....

Well, I don't know about that... I long for the days of burlap banners, guitar-strumming hippies and rainbow vestments. I miss holding hands with complete strangers at the Saturday night disco Mass while I watched altar girls in leotards leap across the vestible waving ribbons in my face. You know, like the early Church. Good times.

You don't get it ... if the progressive madness doesn't stop, the next thing you know, they'll be making nuns wear habits rather than the freeing, empowering ugly pantsuits! And I hear whispers that some radical music liturgists want to replace the great masterworks of Haugen and Haas with this trendy Gregorian chant noise! Where will the insanity end!

Muhuhuhuwahaha-aah-haha! I love it!

The only sad thing is that it will be only a matter of weeks, if even that, until this is not humor, but 'real life'. Nuevo trads are apoplectic (I love that word, BTW) at the moment and we'll see all kinds of craziness pop out of the background in the months to come, no doubt.

Aha... our friends at Call to Action are already beating their protest tambourines. They also got a cool protest website. Good for them. They're anything if not predictable.

Hey, I hear Amazing Grace is getting the boot! The radical musical liturgists are thinking,"With all the hymns, songs, and anthem we got in our 2000 year history, why do we need Prot music?

Hey, I hear Amazing Grace is getting the boot!

If it's got that stupid revision (from "saved a wretch like me" to "saved and set me free") give it the axe, in my opinion.

The Catholic Church does not change,the Mass has not changed. The growth of the faithful is bringing us closer to the Word of God. Those demanding that people remain stuck in the mud of ignorance, small mindedness,and closed heartedness speak only for themselves with only one opinion; to each his own. Let them pray quietly according to how God is calling them.

Given Amazing Grace is very Great Awakening/Evangelical in its soteriology, I'm all for giving it the axe.
