Default Discussing the EF and OF

It is unfortunate that we are unable to discuss the liturgy and speak charitably to each other or about others. In other words, it seems that every time this subject comes up, it eventually ends up in arguing, labeling people, and labeling the forms of the mass as if they can be pitted against each other like football teams.

Such behavior is beneath the intentions of this forum, the reverence due to the subject and the respect due to others. Therefore, all threads about the OF and EF that derail into name calling, labeling people or dishonor the liturgy by pitting one form over the other shall be closed and the posters run the risk of having their accounts moderated or even closed.

If you want to discuss this topic:

1. speak about the liturgy with due honor, regardless of what form you prefer;

2. DO NOT pit one form against the other;

3. Refrain from labeling either the form or the individuals who appreciate one or the other.

4. Bullying will not be tolerated.

If you encounter any problem of this sort in future discussions, please inform me ASAP.

In the unlikely event that it is too difficult to observe these rules, we can always place a moratorium on all discussions about EF and OF, on the TC forum, until cooler heads prevail.

Thank you

Thomas Casey

Mary, Mother of Wisdom, be with us as we navigate through faith
