It's not about us

Truer words...

“The liturgy is not a kind of ‘self-manifestation’ of a community." -- Pope Benedict XVI

Here's the full article: Pope Benedict: ‘The Liturgy Is Celebrated for God and Not for Ourselves’

H/t to Cleansing Fire, which has a nice discussion beginning about the Liturgy.

  1. Most parish communities are going to say and do anything they think they can to make the most money and keep the pews looking full. It makes little difference to them whether people actually have faith or not. It is almost impossible to find a church with its goals in the right place.
