Archbishop Anthony Fisher of Sydney, Australia apologized for “unbeautiful and unwelcoming liturgies” that have failed to inspire, for being denied the Church’s treasury of reconciliation, adoration and other devotions, and for “poor preaching, catechesis or spiritual direction that fails to convert.”
What does he mean by unbeautiful liturgies? Today you ask two Catholics what a beautiful liturgy is, you'll get many different answers. It's all subjective today.
Unbeautiful may be a good word, but more specifics are needed:
3. Busy, activity oriented
4. Function over prayer, worship, adoration and devotional contemplation
5. Popular devotions completely lacking for 95% of the 25% of Catholics who actually go to Mass
In other words instead of just unbeautiful, the Ordinary Mass is just ordinary but worse yet UNTRANSCENDENT!
The fix short of suppressing the Ordinary form:
1. Chant the propers
2. Get rid of the useless repetition of the Responsorial Pslam refrains and recover the Gradual and Tract
3. Ad orientem for the Liturgy of the Eucharist
4. Recovery of proper choreography of the priest and servers
5. Low voice canon
6. Kneeling for Holy Communion
Finally the type of hymns chosen for the Mass must be examined and the proper Catholic spirituality and devotional quality of what is sung must be named and recovered:
For example, the Protestant hymn, “How Great Thou Art” while beautiful, inspirational, robust and singable, is dripping with Protestant devotional piety and ethos. It is not Catholic in its spirituality and devotional aspects—it clearly drips with Protestant sentimentality.
Secular, piano bar, Broadway sounding or trendy, faddish music also makes the liturgy unbeautiful and untranscendent not to mention banal, no matter how much the melody gets the person’s emotional responses moving.
