ARRGH A RANT on when egotism takes the place of liturgy

This morning I attended the worst Mass I have been to in over ten years.

List of abominations.

  1. The altar is placed to one side of the sanctuary, not in the middle. I am not sure I have ever seen this before. The ambo is in equal space. Horrible.
  2. The priest referred to the Mass as a meal and the altar as a table.
  3. The choir used a bassoon, guitars, and piano and all the music sounded Proddie.
  4. The congregation "blessed" the children going out for children's liturgy...those adults have NO power of blessing. The priest sang a trendy blessing song.. horrid.
  5. The men who took the collection slapped people on the back when they gave in their envelopes and talked in the back of the church during most of the Mass.
  6. Jeans, jeans, jeans, jeans and this is a wealthy parish....I just do not get it.
  7. People holding up their hands in the Our Father, in the priestly orans position which the Pope Emeritus said was a huge no-no.
  8. Holding hands as well...ieeuu.
  9. Talking going up to Communion
  10. Two announcements both about money
  11. Talking in church.
