There are a few parishes in the Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis where it seems to me the Mass is less about adoring God and Christ Crucified, than it is about "having a worship experience."
I do not like this at all.


  1. My guess is there is more than a few, Bob.

  2. I suspect strongly that the parishes run the gamut of these - all the way up to one parish I know that has a Tridentine low Mass in Latin. But there is one parish I know where for all I know the Mass is valid and licit, but I can't stand the music combo. I don't know if in me it's just aesthetic distaste, or pride or priggishness, or a longing for the quiet reverent Mass in the 50s when I was an altar boy. And maybe it's just that I'm old.
