I've noticed that this forum tends to discuss the negatives that occur in a liturgy, but I think we should also focus on positives that have occurred. In other words, what changes have occurred in your parish that have helped foster a more reverent and beautiful liturgy?
I'll start: EMHC's in my local parish the Precious Blood is not going to be fractioned after consecration anymore. The wine will be fractioned prior to consecration.
Two quick thoughts. Most people don't think about what is right or good but rather what is wrong or bad. So what you notice is not surprising; but I agree that there is much that is positive and good that should be spotlighted. One change in our parish that I was discussing with another parishioner a few days ago is the improvement in the music and the participation of the congregation in the singing.
Second thought. Pardon my ignorance, but what is the importance of when the wine is fractioned? And does it vary from parish to parish, or priest to priest? I honestly have never noticed a variation; it always seems to be done prior to the consecration, as far as I can recall.
