This attitude is by no means exclusive to EF adherents. It is also especially true in those parishes that connect their liturgical celebrations of Triduum with acts of justice and charity in the wider world–the collecting of food for the hungry and other gifts for the poor at Holy Thursday in response to the ritual mandatum, taking to the streets Good Friday afternoon to proclaim the gospel of the passion in outdoor ways of the cross or even peaceful protests at sites where Christ’s body in the world continues to be broken and nailed to trees of systemic injustice; then and only then regrouping in the parish church for the Celebration of the Lord’s Passion. There are spiritual consequences to liturgical worship; as J. D. Crichton writes, “The message is clear: liturgical worship that is not translated into life and action is vain and incurs the strictures of Christ upon the Pharisees”.

Short Commentary: Can Communion Elements Transmit the Virus? Therefore from the Liturgy, especially from the Eucharist, as from a fountain, grace is distributed into us and with greatest effectiveness that in Christ the sanctification of human beings and the glorification of God is obtained, toward which, as toward an end, all other works of the Church strive. Attamen Liturgia est culmen ad quod actio Ecclesiae tendit et simul fons unde omnis eius virtus emanat. It’s not their fault. Again, from Paul Collins: “This re-interpretation first really surfaced in the early 1990s. Still, if we define God primarily as away, we should not be surprised if we end up with a liturgy that does not find God near to us. When we remove liturgy from the daily prayer life of people, we divorce liturgy not only from their lives and their relationships with other people but also divorce liturgy from their prayerful relationship to God. What Sacrosanctum Concilium provides, within the framework of restored tradition and sound doctrine, is the opportunity to assist the faithful in experiencing more deeply and richly the incarnate wisdom and love of God.

I apologize for characterizing EF adherents in general as interested in separating the sacrifice of the Mass from the eucharistic banquet. So there is a lot of flexibility in our congregations which is comprised of the so-called drag collection of the parable and that’s the way it was, is and will be, world without end. We talk about ‘celebrating’ Mass – and so we should, given the fundamental place of the Paschal mystery in Christian faith. Fact 6 Meaning and purpose of life: 67% report thinking about this often. Perhaps it is worthwhile to recall in this discussion the insight of Alexander Schmemann (and others) that there is a necessary ‘attitude of eschatological event’ both for the whole assembly and the ministers too each time the Divine Liturgy/Mass is celebrated. The implicit echoes of Pius X here (or Pius XII in art. That relationship doesn’t solely exist via ritualization, yes. These self reports are not just giving socially acceptable answers, since about half of the respondents are critical of religion for being too focused on rules, money, power and politics. The liturgy in its turn moves the faithful, filled with “the paschal sacraments,” to be “one in holiness”(Postcommunion for both Masses of Easter Sunday. Nothing official or authoritatively connected to the Magisterium. There are spiritual consequences to liturgical worship; as J. D. Crichton writes, “The message is clear: liturgical worship that is not translated into life and action is vain and incurs the strictures of Christ upon the Pharisees….” A modified formula from Pius X’s Tra le sollecitudini in which liturgy is described as (simultaneously) the glorification of God and the sanctification (and edification) of the faithful appears embedded in the final sentence of the article, reinforcing the notion that all of the Church’s activity derives from and is ordered to declaring/manifesting/celebrating God’s glory and receiving/modeling/witnessing to human transformation in holiness. Rita, in all humility and ignorance of theological nuance, it seems to me the last portion of your quote essentially denies the efficacy of the processes of canonization of saints, which by all accounts (by those who believe the process and tradition as credible) is a rigorous and meticulous one. Reflection on the nature and the effects of the liturgy leads to perhaps the best known passage of the Constitution, which has become a genuine theological axiom: "the liturgy is the summit towards which the activity of the Church is directed and the source from which all its power flows" (SC 10). For heaven’s sake, the Old Testament offers numerous instances when God spurns ritual offerings, sacrifices, etc. In his recently translated Council Journal Yves Congar says that he felt that historically Vatican II came twenty-five years ‘too early’, that only the youngest bishops had imbibed the renewed theological, historical and scriptural studies that underpinned the conciliar documents. These “people” are quite often the clergy. Crichton, “all of the Church’s activity derives from and is ordered to declaring/manifesting/celebrating God’s glory and receiving/modeling/witnessing to human transformation in holiness.” Some Catholics, and not infrequently Catholics attached to the EF and its spirituality, overemphasize the sacrificial aspect of the Eucharist at the expense of the banquet. For the aim and object of apostolic works is that all who are made sons of God by faith and baptism should come together to praise God in the midst of His Church, to take part in the sacrifice, and to eat the Lord's supper. First, we may as well admit our intercessory prayers are in vain and useless, and either pack it up and go home or keep vigil out of love ( a miracle itself.) This is nothing new: David scandalised the people by dancing before the Ark. Trivialization or omitting certain ritual aspects, deprives the celebration of its reference to the underlying mystery. All I am saying is that it’s God who holds the universe in being, not our rituals. The liturgy in its turn moves the faithful, filled with “the paschal sacraments,” to be “one in holiness” [26]; it prays that “they may hold fast in their lives to what they have grasped by their faith” [27]; the renewal in the Eucharist of the covenant between the Lord and man draws the faithful into the compelling love of Christ and sets them on fire. Liturgy is “summit” insofar as other ecclesial actions are ordered to it, as was intimated in article 9. The council fathers supported this SC paragraph buttressing it with a theological understanding that Jesus Christ is the *sacrament* of the Trinity, that *sacrament* lives on in the sacrament of the church; that grace builds on nature, that creation exists in a both/and; not an either/or which had existed for centuries and prolonged the Manichean divisions between grace and nature, vertical and horizontal, meal and sacrifice. It expresses itself by not understanding the theology of the council fathers – rather, it dismisses it as *disruption* and appeals again to an over-emphasis on the *vertical*, *sacrifice*, *individualistic grace mentality*. 12 Sacrosanctum concilium, §21. While commentators are free to go in any direction they wish, it might be fruitful to consider if and how, over the last fifty years, this teaching has been communicated, to what extent a genuinely liturgical spirituality animates our congregations, and what modifications of this teaching (if any) we might offer in the light of fifty years experience.

These are two examples of the liturgy being the high-point (summit) of parish life as well of the source of the parish’s apostolic energy, especially in those parishes that understand the making of new Christians as meaning making new active and intentional disciples of Jesus who work to change the every day worlds they live and love in. Not all are based on an individual. I do wonder if the great stress some EF adherents place on the holy sacrifice is the result of a false identification of versus populum celebration with the notion of sacrificial banquet. The celebration facing the people suggests in the first place the local community and puts less focus on God. IMO, the Triduum becomes the parish liturgical highpoint which continues to live in the parish; is consistently invoked almost every week-end; has RCIA members involved throughout the Easter Season and beyond; and can significantly impact how the parish and its communal liturgy sees itself. Religious organizations protect and strengthen morality: 76% agree. The celebration facing the people suggests in the first place the local community and puts less focus on God.

Trent and Renaissance Catholicism reconstructed the narrative, making what had been a ritual community into an idelogical one. I do, however, wish to address the subject of the ambiguity which is often imputed to the documents of Vatican II, particularly because it is of great relevance to the Apostolic Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, Sacrosanctum Concilium, the very first document issued by the Council, and the most pertinent to the subject and interest of NLM. One more thought, concerning the “divine framework… from all eternity” of which Alan Griffiths speaks: What has become problematic to modern people, I would submit, is not that there are eternal stakes involved in worship nor even divine election and providence, but that what is eternal is being confused with what is historical, and God’s providence is being confused with specific decisions arising from a hierarchical model that is itself outdated and in need of change. Importance of Religion: 58% of American say religion is very important, Fact 9. @David Philippart – comment #21: Nevertheless in my opinion, any consideration of SC 10 requires a consideration of the tendency of a number of Catholics to focus on the consecration as the “high point” of the Mass. Total participation in the liturgy, immersion in the Paschal mystery, is a great deal more demanding than we might care to admit. Of this there are no more examples in our current culture. So what have we left? Intercession and even supernatural intervention (miracles) on the other hand, which is what I think you are pointing to in speaking about the saints, is always toward God’s purposes and beyond our control or manipulation.
