Bishop Athanasius Schneider of Kazakhstan gave a speech on 15 January 2012 in which he listed “five wounds” of the liturgical mystical body of Christ. His whole address is on Paix Liturgique.
His basic premise is that the rupture in our liturgical worship that has resulted in abuses after the Council and because of going beyond the Council’s 6 clear mandates in Sacrosanctum Concilium about liturgical reform, have resulted in wounds to Christ’s Body the Church.
Then he goes through “five wounds” of the liturgical mystical body of Christ.
You can read his explanations on your own, but here are my bullet points based on Bp. Schneider’s text:>
- Mass versus populum.
- Communion in the hand.
- The Novus Ordo Offertory prayers.
- Disappearance of Latin in the Ordinary Form.
- Liturgical services of lector and acolyte by women and ministers in lay clothing.
