You prove that it is not necessary to smack people over the head. Leading gently always works better. truthfinder February 22, 2008 at 11:56 amLog in to Reply Very clear, reasoned explanation, Father. As a convert who was formerly an Episcopalian, I appreciate the Holy Father’s pointing us toward the reason for worship. Thank you!

Blessings, Jenny Bobalouie February 22, 2008 at 8:18 pmLog in to Reply Hello Father! Your article points to such a strong contrast between “competing” visions. I’m visiting Naples, Fl and went to a church that just opened last summer. No statues, pictures, paintings, kneelers or tabernacle… just 4 very large monitor screens embedded in the walls around the “worship space.” How iconically ironic for a “modern” Catholic church, nothing to look at but monitor screens during Mass! What is the “hermeneutic of continuity” for the next generation from this parish? kkollwitz February 23, 2008 at 7:40 pmLog in to Reply “…when we attend Mass we are entering the very throne room of the King…. If this is so, then the whole perspective shifts…”Indeed it does. Lately at Mass I’ve been reflecting on the Cloud of Witnesses, i.e., the saints who are attending the Divine Liturgy along with us. I try to imagine how the Consecration must look from their perspective. Given that their perceptions are no longer obscured by sin, somehow they must see the bread & wine become Body & Blood plainly and objectively. I suppose they can see all the sacraments operating as plain as day, and I try to imagine how this must look.
