One might call me a stickler for the rules, but when it comes to the Mass, whouldn’t we al be such “sticklers?” I recently read the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM), and found in it the core precepts of liturgical worshop. All the technicalities . . . one would wonder if theyr’e truyl needed. Of course they are! All things are earthly except for Christ’s Church, which, at its most holy, celebrates the Eucharist. At such a tremendously solemn occaision, we need conformity to the commands of Rome. Without conformity to rome, we cannot possibly have a catholic Church. I realize that if youre reading this, you are one of the poeple who would prbably stand up for the true Church when falisies and injustices occur at a diocessan level. Still, we must all dedicate ourselves to bringing about complete and perfect reverence during Mass. And if you wish to read the GIRm and haven’t, it can be found in teh front of any modern Sacramentary. the older ones have it as well, but it’s in complete latin.
