Around the blogs today

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Aug 28, 2003

Here's what's new and interesting on Catholic blogs today:

  • Mark Shea points out that usually the Protestants who are getting all worked up over the Ten Commandments monument in Alabama would be castigating Catholics for having statues of saints in their churches and homes.
  • Speaking of the Ten Commandments monument, Jeff Miller reveals the statue that has replaced it in the Alabama justice building.
  • Lane Core says the big liturgical controversy in recent days isn't really about kneeling and what's allowed by the GIRM, but about the efforts by some liturgists to push their own agendas.
  • Meanwhile, Mark Sullivan has a funny riff on why God allows liturgists.
  • The "Choir Director" has a roundup of postings on the implementation of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal.

    The comments about the liturgy by Core and Shea are especially apt. In my diocese over the past few months for some reason they have started putting either extraordinary ministers or priests and deacons IN THE BACK of the center aisle. The faithful in the back half of the pews have to turn around and go to the back to receive Communion. It's great you can receive Communion, bow to the double doors and leave.
