His Excellency is right about "instant communication" today. Let’s have as many people as possible hear this.
I applaud the initiative of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, His Excellency Most Reverend Robert Lynch, to use video and audio on the internet to help people reflect on the Eucharist.
However, this bishop’s true view of the older form of Mass is veiled with what I can only think is carefully polite language.
Here is a clip from the livingeucharist.org.
Listen especially to the way Bp. Robert Lynch speaks of the "clerical" style of Mass in the older form. People couldn’t see or hear "unless Father wanted you too" etc.
I find the way the Novus Ordo is celebrated in most places to be far more "clerical" than ever the older form could be!
While I think the intiative is very good in itself, I think the older form of Mass deserves far better treatment.
