More about the wRECk 2008

Here are a few more comments about Cardinal Roger Mahony's 2008 wRECk, or Religious Education Congress (click on this post's title).

The wRECk photos show that the Saturday General "Liturgy" (what ever happened to the word "Mass?") featured three girl altar boys. Are we to think there are no boy altar boys left in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles?

The wRECk photos also show that the Black Culture "Liturgy" had the wicker baskets and kool-aid pitchers that are so de riguer at "Congress."

Very typical of WREC violations of the GIRM and RS left and right. I know one of the priests who was at the Nigerian Mass, he's very solid and orthodox, I think that a lot of the blame for the kool-aid pitchers and wicker baskets belong to the Liturgy Coordinators. Maybe I'll get in as a Liturgy Coordinator for next year's WREC and we can put a stop to this. As for the altar girls, when I get control, they're not coming back. If you look at my blog I think maybe the GIRM and RS for Dummies book might be a help. It's always good to come here and know eventually things will be fixed. In the meantime, let us pray for obedience to the Church's Law.

Q: nice post!

And good note on Liturgy...

Ukrainian and other Byzantine Catholics would be horrified at what Episcopalians and liberal Latin-rite Catholics call "liturgy" in lieu of "Mass".

Technically speaking, "liturgy" is the more traditional and exact term. "Mass" is colloquial, and derives from "missae", which in turn comes from the last words of the traditional Latin Mass, "Ite missa est" - go, it is the dismissal. You have to wonder if libcaths use "Liturgy" to escape even the faintest reminders of the Old Mass.
