Here are two examples of unbeautiful that will not inspire the youth of our Church to be on fire for the Lord, His Church or the Mass:
This morning, as I celebrated the Memorial of Blessed John XXIII, arguably the one who paved the way for Bugnini and his unbeautiful liturgy and eventual unbeautiful architecture to celebrate it, I was tempted to take the unbeautiful a step further which most priests my age and older would do.
What is that, you ask?
I was tempted on this morning after Hurricane/Tropical Storm Michael has passedover Richmond Hill, to say to the congregation, the remnant that gathered for our 9 AM Mass, because I had robo-called the parish saying our office would be closed and all activities/ministries canceled, the following at Mass after the Sign of the Cross and Greeting:
"Good morning Church! I am so glad you braved the remnants of Hurricane Michael to be with me this morning to celebrate Mass because you knew that I would be here. Thanks so much I am grateful for your presence, so let's acknowledge our sins........"
Thank God I didn't because how unbeautiful would that have been?
Do you have any anecdotes about the Ordinary Form of the Mass being made even more unbeautiful by the silliness of the celebrant and his folksy ways that tries to make the Mass more human, less stiff and rigid and the rest of it? And is there a correlation between the sterile unbeautiful modern church archtiecture for an unbeautiful Mass and the dumbing down further of the unbeautiful nature of our liturgies which devolve into the priest's idiosyncrasies?
