Fr. Z laments the crackdown on the 1962 Roman Missal and those parish churches which underwent and “reenchantment” of their liturgical “space” to use a godawful post Vatican II term.
A message to Fr. Z would be that the modern Missal could easily be celebrated in a reenchanted liturgical space.
A message to local bishops, archbishops and archbishop-cardinals, the modern Missal is allowed to be celebrated in Latin, ad orientem and with Gregorian Plainchant and Polyphony and in a reenchanted liturgical space.
And this reenchanted liturgical space and nave shows you what can be accomplished in a basic a-framed church building. One main altar is all that is needed. God forbid that a bishop force a pastor to add another duplicate altar in front of the main altar of a church like this. IT IS NOT NEEDED! LEAVE THIS LITURGICAL SPACE ALONE! Just my humble suggestion:
