Can the the Ordinary Form of the Mass be celebrated well. You'd better believe it. We do it everyday!
We had a larger than normal attendance at our 8:00 AM Mass this Friday morning. We offered the Mass for the intention of all those who are suffering in the wake of the earthquake and Tsunami in Japan.
I received a comment on a post concerning well celebrated Masses in the Ordinary Form which I posted on August 10, 2010. The comment was positive, but they didn't like the use of altar girls dressed in cassock and surplice. The person said this is clerical garb for a seminarian, deacon or priest and thus male clothing.
I am not opposed to girls serving the altar and to take it away from them would not be seen as fair by them or their parents. However, dressing the girls in a different manner might not be a bad idea. What do you think?
