[Or worse (as some wit, influenced by McDonald’s, has put it): From Holy Sacrifice to Happy Meal? – AQ Tom]

It would seem if one is going to act out what is below the cross in this image at “the Eucharist”, that the cross would be eliminated in favor of a “Risen Christ” Cross or an empty Cross, similar to Protestantism. And one wouldn’t want to emphasize Christ’s horrific suffering, still playing out as sinners commit sin, evil, blasphemy, sacrilege, genocide and the like, especially SOME priests and bishops (a minority btw) who corrupt their ministry in the most heinous way,  by actually being somber and penitential during the Mass to make REPARATION to our Lord, but rather we would want a convivial meal like atmosphere of joy and hospitality.

I don’t think what is in the image above is appropriate for THE HOLY SACRIFICE OF THE MASS. Maybe that’s the reason it isn’t done in the Extraordinary Form.

Why in the name of God and all that is holy is it to be found very appropriate in the Ordinary Form “Eucharist”?

  1. What you mean “we”, Paleface?
    Reason #5,837 to just say NO to the N.O.

      • Hey Patrick! I know this is entirely off the topic, but as I was just doing my novena prayers for today I was inspired to ask after you. With all those cruel fires in California and even firenadoes that have killed, how are you and yours doing this year? Are you anywhere near the horrible conflagration? Let us know if you need extra prayers.

        • We’re fine. The fires are very far to the north. It was most kind of you to ask. Please keep me and mine in you prayers as a few items on the agenda could definitely use spiritual aid!
          God bless you!
