I can't help but wonder about Catholics who are pro-choice. Do they attend Mass and if so, what type of celebration of the Mass. Somehow I think there is a link between the trivialization of the celebration of the Mass and the trivialization of our Faith and Morals.

Do you think trivializing the Mass leads to a loss of faith and morals in the marketplace?

This belongs in a dance hall, not in a Church. It destroys our faith and morals!

Clowning around with the Holy Mass weakens and destroys Catholic Faith and Morals!

I think it's about more than a trivialization of the Holy Mass. There is a trivilization of the entirety of sacred Tradition, as well as a loss of "Catholic identity."

The Church in America is treated as one "denomination" among many instead of Christ's Church, the method by which He chose to continue His public ministry.

People are too quick to be ecumenical for the sake of not hurting anyone's feelings regarding their salvation or lack thereof. People are also too quick to trivialize the truth - that the Catholic Church is the Truth.

Marc, when Catholics experience the trivialization of the celebration of the Mass, I think that in and of itself is the trivialization of our Catholic Faith and identity. Fr. McDonald

Oh, I definitely agree with you, Father, and I didn't mean to suggest otherwise.

There are causal relationships in both directions regarding lack of reverence at the Holy Mass and a trivilization of Catholic Faith and identity.

Their is one thing that seems to stand out like a sore thumb to me. Those images of so called worship hit me as finding their origin in man, while the traditional form is of a divine origin (pagen vs christian) just my opinion. It just makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up, and sends a shiver down my spine. Oh by the way what planet where you on when you took those pictures of the pegan worship cerimonies! lol lol
Rupture is a nice way of putting it, I would have stronger verbal discription!

I love the sign, "My Body, My Will." Volumes of theological presumption are spoken there, as well as a concise summation of secular liberal humanism. "My body, my soul, my heart, my world, my universe..." Me, me, me,me, mine.

I read your statement in our parish bulletin and didn't understand it until I went to this site online. Where were the Bishops of the diocese where these celebrations were taking place? Why wasn't someone called to task? These men are our pastor, our shepherd. They should be making sure that the service conforms to the rubrics.
