It seems to me that as soon as we started designating the Mass as a "celebration", it shifted from being an act of worship For God to being an assembly For the Congregation. Do you agree with this? Is not the Mass a Holy Sacrifice, a re-enactment of Calvary? How could the Church have permitted this strange emphasis? Is it not the root of the misinterpretation of Vatican II?
Carole, good post. I agree with you.
