Joel and I are buzz kill, even among Orthodox, natural family planning-practicing, frequent confession-going Catholics. Last weekend we gathered together with some married couple friends to talk about Theology of the Body. He stepped in to try to save our collective Schmidt face. And thank you for giving me some worthy material, friend!

It is the handbook for how to celebrate the Mass. It covers such things like the structure of the Mass, its elements and parts; postures, processions and gestures; silence and singing; liturgical furnishings; the role of the deacon, liturgical ministers, and laity, and much more. It is the source and summit of our life as Catholic Christians. So let our words and actions, our prayers and music, our worship spaces and liturgical furnishings and art, be worthy of the profound mystery we celebrate.

When making decisions about the source and summit of our life, ought not we be obliged to explore what the Church says about the issue, and then frame our discussion and decision-making from that perspective? Our Holy Father actually addressed this point recently.

In his proclamation he states,. Here are five thoughts on how to do that. Finally a disclaimer. I offer these suggestions simply as a lifelong Catholic who has served in various roles for the Church, both as an employee and volunteer.

Knowing the real truth can only bring joy; never kill it. Great job! Oh Lisa Lisa Lisa. We have a copy of this in our house. Thank you. Lisa Bourne. July 20, at AM. More like faithful. No, rather it really speaks to the sad state of things today in the Church.

With the insufficient catechesis of the last 40 years in the U. July 24, at AM. Why is it Important? Elizabeth Seton. January 23, at PM. My local Catholic Church has an empty cross hanging over the altar instead of a Crucifix. I have read that masses held without a Crucifix are illicit. Many people have addressed this issue with Monsignor, but the cross has not been replaced by a Crucifix.

What suggestions do you have? The Archbishop has seen the cross and has not issued a statement. August 23, at PM. Lessons from the Car Line CatholicMom. September 8, at AM. Again, do […]. Rosemarie Kinney. October 29, at PM. I had a few questions about the liturgy in my parish church. The chairs are metal folding chairs with no kneelers. The floor is tile. There is not room between chairs for an adult to kneel. What is the remedy? I still do not have answers to these questions after looking at it.
