Novus Ordo Notes: The Angels Wear Gucci
“This is a serious matter to be considered by all of us. The Sacred Liturgy is central to our lives.”
Join Fr. Brendan Kilcoyne for episode 60 of ‘The Brendan Option’ where he imparts some notes on the Novus Ordo Mass.
“Shouldn’t we go back in to the general instruction to the Roman Missal? More to the point, go back in to the Council itself… have a rummage around there and see if we can’t be doing this better, because I’m convinced we can be doing this better.”
“One of the lamentable features of the Novus Ordo was that it put too much emphasis on the priest at the centre instead of Our Lord Jesus Christ. One rule that priests must be taught is that the priest is like a lump of sugar in tea… it is his business to dissolve.”
“The Sanctuary should be as rich as the Church can afford… Not just rich, it should be elegant. The Sanctuary is here Heaven beams down. The rest of the church can be quite austere, the Sanctuary should be a glimpse of Heaven.”
