I have been posting some liturgical compare and contrast pictures and videos lately. Some readers have taken me to task for being unfair by posting images that are great when traditional, really nasty when liberal.
Fine. Let’s try this again.
Yesterday we saw the “celebration” for the annual Los Angeles Education Conference. This was the closing liturgy. I think most liturgical liberals would say that this is about as good as it gets for doing their sort of thing.
Let’s refresh your memory about opening minutes of last year‘s closing Mass, 2010.
And now, by way of contrast, here is the sample video of the opening minutes of last year‘s Pontifical TLM at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, in 2010. This was in honor of the anniversary of the election of Pope Benedict XVI. I think must of the traditionally-minded would say this is about as good as it gets for their sort of thing.
Let’s refresh your memory.
QUAERITUR: If the organizers of this year’s Mass for Pope Benedict’s anniversary at the National Shrine had wanted do something like the Los Angeles liturgy instead of a Pontifical TLM, would they have encountered so many obstacles that they were forced to cancel the event?
