I had an interesting perspective today on Mass… I try to attend Mass w/ my daughter at school on Thursday mornings and then also attend a TLM that afternoon. Today (Oct 11) is the Feast of the Motherhood of the Blessed Virgin Mary and was celebrated at the TLM. No mention at all in the NO Mass this morning. In fact, aside from Major Feast Days, I don’t think that the NO Masses ever mention the saints for whom the day is a feast or memorial or whatever. I realize the calendar changed (why?) but why doesn’t the NO celebrate these days? Are the saints taboo now? Also, at the TLMs, the priest always talks about the saints and the Blessed Virgin in the sermons and how they are great examples for us. Narry a word in the NO sermons. The sermons seems to always be tied into the readings (which is great) but there are never saints or anything “Catholic”, if you will. These priests who come up w/ entertaining sermons are doing their parishioners a huge disservice. Is this part of the “restoration” that V2 was talking about?
