They STILL dont get it.....

After returning from the Guild conference after 4 days of spiritual growth, meeting new friends and learning about real liturgy, I succumbed to the temptation of looking at some of the lefty Catholic websites, and found this article entitled Pope Turns Away from Congregation.

The whole article is totally negative, anti reform, and anti the Holy Father. There is the sense in this article that when the priest is facing away from the congregation it means that he hates them or wants to ignore them. They completely ignore the theology (as they have no sense of the theology). Note how also that it was tied up with notes that Benedict used an old throne of Pius IX (bad) and issued a decree allowing wider use of the Latin Mass earlier last year (also bad).

This is not the first time that ignorant and anti-Catholic reporting has come from Reuters, but the fact that Cathnews reported it rather than a Vatican press release shows the sense of anti-Benedict in the organisation that runs it.

Thats my rant for today, I will report on more pleasant things (like the conference :-)) after Roman has entertained you with his pics.

This is what happens when liturgy takes on an ideological, rather than a theological relevance. See a reference to Fr. Rob Johannsen in today's NLM. He analyses the problem thoroughtly.
