Archbishop Sample Emphasizes ‘Liturgy According to the Mind, Heart of the Church’


He noted that in the years since the reform of the sacred liturgy after Vatican II, “There has been a lot of experimentation, a lot of aberrations in the celebration of liturgy, and in some more severe cases, liturgical abuses.”

He regretted that too frequently the way the new order of the Mass is celebrated obscures the reality of the real presence of the Lord in the Eucharist, and there is a loss of a sense of transcendence and the mystery of the holy Mass — “mystery” in the sense we’re encountering and touching the divine in the Blessed Sacrament.
