The infamous National Chismatic Reporter (NCR) has an article on how to evaluate liturgy as drama. It does not disappoint my post-Vatican II spirit of Vatican II hatred of such garbage in the least. Press the title for the complete article:
- Does worship bring about a higher level of participatory leadership and an increase in the community's involvement in various activities in the parish?
- Does worship establish a pattern of relationship and, if so, which type (hierarchical or egalitarian) between the clerical leader and lay members of the parish?
- Does worship shape a moral consensus within the community, that is, a set of common moral values, regarding controversial ethical issues, spiritual practices and financial contributions?
- Do the seven above-mentioned variables contribute to the increase or decrease of the "spiritual and emotional energy" of the whole parish?
