This was then! (1970's) but look at the two videos below for "what's happening now!" Unbelievable, but true!
PI has accused me and others who like the 1962 missal and pray for a more concrete reform of the reform of the modern missal as being nostalgic for what is perceived as the good old days, usually the 1950's, although now that I'm in my 50's I think the 50's are now the good old days, so to speak!
But in the name of all that is good and holy, why are some priests who are my age and older, now in their 60's and 70's nostalgic for the 1960's and 70's? For the love of God and all that is holy, are they serious?
Listen to the hymn below that these two guitar strumming priests are leading. I haven't heard that since the 1970's! YIKES. Are they intentionally trying to be a caricature of all that was wrong with that period of time? Is this a comedy act? Sadly, no it isn't. They want a return of this crap and I presume in their parishes, the 1970's are alive and vibrant, not just in liturgy but also in mentality especially against the hierarchy, in terms of rebellion so common in that period and fomented by these very men when they were in their 20's and 30's.
This Mass occurred this past week at the Benedictine St. Leo College in Florida--men recapturing the youth of their priesthood. Is it time to commit them to the nursing home where they can't harm anyone or themselves liturgically? You watch and you decide!
As you watch these two videos, pray The Fatima Prayer over and over!
O my Jesus,
forgive us our sins,
save us from the fire of hell,
lead all souls to heaven,
especially those who are in most need of Thy mercy.
And in this video of the same conference, you'll see very well the age group that is interested in this crap and nostalgia from the 70's. Literally, my stomach is churning so distressing do I find this. And I won't point him out, but one of our diocesan priests is in the crowd, and am I surprised? No!
If you can stomach it, read this group's mantra and then look at their website for more inspiring videos! (Is this the male version of the LCWR? Or maybe this is the the LCWR?)
"We are artists, musicians, poets, pastors and dreamers who are connecting with other pilgrims of the infinite. We are more than mildly distressed by the ecclesial turn of events since Paul VI. We have been wrecked and laid waste, devastated and destroyed ... but we are still "hanging in" ... still trying to keep hope alive, because it is the only dance there is."
