There is a good article today at Crisis by Fr. John Perricone about the widespread liturgical wreckovation perpetrated against the People of God by the pointy-headed “experts” who were – and still are – stoned on the vapors of the “spirit of Vatican II”.
Most people have no idea that most of the vandalism – nay, that term does disservice to Vandals – devastation wreaked in churches, and the malfeasance generated against new structures, was not mandated by the Fathers of the Council. In fact, their mandates were quite limited in scope.
But look what we got.
The fact is that, of the two major teams on the playing field (threshing floor?), only one seems to be able to get organized, work together and carry out their goals. The other mostly resembles a cross between a clown car and a bird cage, the inmates pecking at each other and squirting seltzer bottles.
Guess which are the sides I mean.
When will the pettiness end and the true cooperation begin?
What I see are various splintered factions who would rather die than leave the tiny wrinkle of ground they’ve claimed. Like dogs on chaffing chains they will even snap and bite at those who offer aid.
I would ask them: How’s that working for you? Better yet, how’s that working for all of us?
