I was at the presentation of a book today prepared by the Pont. Council for Promoting Christian Unity headed up by His Eminence Walter Card. Kasper. The book was presented as a manual of suggestions and projects for "Spiritual Ecumenism".
Some of the projects suggested in the book would be things like becoming more familiar with Scripture and documents about ecumenical issues, getting to know the liturgies and celebrations of others, etc.
Wouldn’t you like a little "spiritual ecumenism" for people who want the older form of Mass?
People could treat those with a desire for traditional liturgy with respect. They could attend Mass in Latin and receive Communion on the tongue like others with traditional aspirations and offend the sensibilities of those who think particles of Hosts that wind up on the floor or clothing are Jesus Christ truly present, His Body, Blood, Soul, Divinity. They could learn the Latin prayers and frequent traditional devotions, perhaps even going to confession frequently.
But wait… that all sounds familiar.
