This image tells you why baby boomer Catholics embraced a more human, thus friendly, Catholics Church and Liturgy:

What we baby boomers called the “old” Mass captured the look of the nun in the above link, thus we loved the more human nuns Vatican II mandated as well as a more human, friendly, flexible Mass.

The perceived affective friendliness of the Presider and other “ministers” of the Mass was heavily promoted in the 1960’s and ’70’s by liturgical theologians like Fr. Eugene Walsh, SS.

Thus not only did Mass facing the congregation result in creating the cult of the personality of the priest presider with the good presider being the opposite of the nun in the link above, with Liturgical theologians like Fr. Walsh, leading the way to a doctrine of affectivity!

This photo captures the personality “doctrine” to a t:

Baby boomer Catholics after being oppressed and repressed by severe nuns and liturgies couldn’t get enough of
a freeing, happy clappy  nun or liturgy!

Can the EF and OF Masses find a happy and serious middle ground between the Divine Person of Jesus Christ, who has two natures, human and divine?

  1. I hope the priest’s final question was in jest.

  2. I have difficulty with Fr. McDonald’s question: “Can the EF and OF Masses find a happy and serious middle ground between the Divine Person of Jesus Christ, who has two natures, human and divine?”

    I do not think that he jests, especially because he is a Novus-Ordo-liturgy-oriented “conservative” priest who is “open to tradition” (particularly the traditional Latin liturgy and including aspects of it in the Novus Ordo liturgy; i.e., a “reformer of the reform”). Thus, his liturgical views are similar to those of B16 especially his reform-of-the-reform (for the Novus Ordo liturgy) and Summorum Pontificum (for the traditional Latin liturgy) “initiatives” – as well as the “mutual enrichment” between the two liturgies. On more than one occasion FrankenPope has debunked the reform-of-the-reform idea/movement especially “calling [Liturgy Congregation Prefect Cardinal Sarah] on the carpet” for his advocacy of such – the latest being his recent state during a private visit to Benedictine Sisters in The Netherlands: “the pope doesn’t give his permission for an integrated Missal” (where both forms would merge), but that he and his collaborators are thinking about it: “patience is needed” (see en.news’ report Francis Opposes Renewal of Novus Ordo – Cardinal Sarah).

    To return to my difficulty with Fr. MacDonald’s quote: Understanding it, because he has a “between” clause without an explicit “and” section – unless it is an implicit analogy of the amalgamation of the two “forms” of the liturgy with the hypostatic union of the human and divine natures in the divine person of Jesus.
