Why Bad Liturgy Hurts.....

A good article posted over at "Some Have Hats"


I really liked the point in this article about DELIBERATE messing with the Mass versus priests who try to do everything right, but may occasionally flub the words or something.....
But I think the big difference is - priests who are in love with the Eucharist v. priests who could care less.

When a priest really loves the Eucharist, you can tell. You can tell how absorbed he is in the Mass, you can tell by how his face lights up as soon as he enters the church and sees the tabernacle.....

You can tell he knows he is in the presence of his Lord and that he LOVES his Lord passionately.
And the really cool thing is, even kids can tell. They'll still act up from time to time (at least my little ones will) but at least they realize that Jesus is there.

We're really lucky. We go to a parish where our pastor really, really LOVES the Eucharist.
It's too bad that more people don't have that....
