And They Can’t Figure Out Why People Don’t Go to Mass
Among all the other things Mass is meant to be, it certainly stands out that it is meant for us, as the people of God, His children, to worship Him together.
A priest and friend from an unknown parish, in an unknown American location sent this photo of a booklet found in the sacristy. These are petitions meant for use at Mass.
Check that out a couple times more.
I cannot make my mind up if that is better than the communist passive-aggressive petitions found in many parishes (“For an end to oppression and victory to the revolution… ” or “That society may be transformed into service and love of neighbor…”)
Watch out in the middle of this petition set, though… as usual the ugly makes small appearances. Notice “for dissenters and the right to dissent.” Dang. I spoke too soon about the lack of communist passive-aggressive stuff…
I mean, I really enjoyed stereo headphones back in the day because I could listen to my talking heads tapes without waking the entire house. I also enjoyed Snoopy. Sure, thank God for that! LOL
Is this better or worse than what you hear at Mass?
These petitions lack something, though. Can anyone else get their finger on it? I notice that nothing in these petitions transcend the truths God has revealed. No mention of grace. No mention of God’s power to make straight the crooked. No mention of conversion. Just a bunch of man made stuff, nature, and dissent?
Is this kind of thing a mockery of God? Here is Our Lord ready to be consecrated and sacrifice Himself again on the altar in order to send supernatural grace to the willing, and we’re talking about “black and red and brown power”? Does anyone even know what that is?
