Again, I ask you to help me understand what the pope said about the liturgy in his off-the-cuff interview. As usual, I am scratching my head:
Pope Francis also touched briefly on the liturgy and his decision to restrict the Traditional Latin Mass, saying there is a crisis “of poor liturgical formation” in the church, and “The lack of mercy in the celebration of the Mass” is one cause of this.
This lack of mercy “causes scandal,” he said, saying, “a Church that does not celebrate the liturgy well is a Church that does not know how to praise God, that does not know how to live deeply. For me it is important to discipline the liturgy well.”
