1- All parish calendar activities faithful to the magisterium. That means no eco-spirituality, no reiki, and no enneagrams, etc. Replace those with traditional, saintly devotions.
2- Deny obviously immodestly clad parishioners communion (now that summer’s coming and so many like to wear hardly anything).
3- I agree that the the structure of the church building should be reverant… centered on God rather than ourselves (no “super-happy-community-funtime”). No octagons!
4- I wish more nuns would wear the habit. It’s a beautiful and humble testimony to the public without even having to say a word. Plus, it doesn’t leave much room for androgynous feminism in dress.
5- Music of a higher calling. Gregorian. I just can’t imagine the 60’s hymns with or without the guitars leading the angels to weep.
6- Kneel for communion, receive on tongue.
7- More holy images and statues.
8- Exclude modern art.
9- Have at least one parish have 24 hour confessions, 7 days a week. Rotate priests to cover hours. This almost seems a necessity in this world that is marinating in sin.
10- All parishes should have 7:30 PM confessions on Wednesday, in addition to the Saturday confession. Even if it’s just for 20 minutes.
11- Encourage more women to wear the mantilla. Educate women that the church has not done away with it, and explain although it’s not a requirement, it is a pious thing.
12- If there must be interfaith gatherings, no prayers allowed to other “gods” in the parish or even on parish properties. None of this “we all worship different forms of the same god” heresy.
13- More parish devotions times.
14- Archdiocese and diocese encourage and reward parishes that are loyal, while chastising “progressive” parishes.
15- Bishops, archbishops to have a low tolerance policy for dissident priests/retreat centers/convents/parishes/groups, etc.
16- This is one I’ve always kind of fancied, although I completely understand if no one else likes the idea… But I think it would be nice, and a great help in today’s immodest world, if perhaps Catholic women could have modest Catholic dresses (or shirts & skirts) sold and approved by the Church. Not a habit, of course, but more of an approved prescription for readily made modesty. Too many people suffer from moral relativism when it comes to modesty & clothing (what one may find immodest, another may not agree, etc. There would be no doubt Catholic clothing for women would be modest). All proceeds go to the Catholic Church. And yes, maybe attire for men too. This would be a great way for convents to make money that they may need, and to help Catholic women dress in Mary-like modesty. I understand if some people don’t like this suggestion, although I’m not talking burqas (the dresses wouldn’t cover the face!).
17- I guess over all, just more loyalty all around.
