Letting the catechesis out of the bag.
The regressive liberal thinks himself master of the Liturgy instead of its servant. We live in an age when everyone thinks he or she is a crowned head of state to whom the Liturgy should bow. The liturgical celebrations of Holy Week tend to reveal just how desperate certain regressive elements in the Church have recently become.
Abuse, distortion or manipulation.
In the West, a younger generation is not satisfied with the inventions of their older brethren who have, as a generation, largely failed to be reliable elders for the young. The relatively few wise elders who have bequeathed to the Church a faithful witness to the Apostolic Faith, and those young people who search the internet for that which their parents and pastors have failed to communicate, are the seed of renewal that will pick up only after the regressive 1970s anarchists in suits and pantsuits have left this world. The next generation must contend with the political and economic, ecological and spiritual damage done by a "me-first" generation, a generation which bought into the lie of the "Enlightenment", of a hyper-individualism that is leading to a complete inversion of inalienable rights.
One of the more fundamental and earliest controversies within the Christian Church centered around the ideas identified by two Greek words: homoiousios (ηομοιουσιος), meaning “of a similar substance,” and homoousios (ηομοουσιος), meaning “of the same substance”; two words that differ by a single letter: iota. [...] Christianity was nearly split by the smallest letter in the Greek alphabet.
In Alexandria around the year 319, the previously obscure presbyter Arius attempted to rationalize the mystery that Christians find in the relationship between Jesus and God. He attracted a large following preaching the neoplatonist idea of the absolute oneness of the divinity. He felt that this was a unity that could not be shared, and therefore Jesus was a lesser deity who had been called into existence by God. Jesus was “homoiousian,” that is, of a similar nature to God, but not the same as, God.
Opponents, led most prominently by Athanasius, bishop of Alexandria, preached that Jesus was in fact “homoousian,” the same as God. This caused such conflict that Emperor Constantine demanded they work out their differences at what became the Council of Nicaea in 325.
The homoosians won the debate and codified the (orthodox teaching of the Church) in a set of statements known as the [...] Nicene Creed, which states that Jesus is consubstantial with the Father.—from an article at xefer (corrections by IJ).
My god has fleas.
To state that the language we use in worship is important is a massive understatement. We've seen the damage done by revisionist language imposed on the secular sphere. Political correctness has damaged human relationships to a degree that can only be described as devastating to authentic intimacy and courtesy. Feminist language in worship has reduced God either to a neutered entity that neatly fits into relativists' pagan conceptions or some pantheistic deity who is as capricious as the people using said deity's label.
But seriously folks... .
The change of the word 'cup' to 'chalice' in the renewed Missal (3rd Edition) makes clear the point that the Mass is not a common meal. A cup is a common thing; a chalice is something extraordinary. The Mass is, indeed, something extra-extraordinary! The regressive individual, however, selects a vocabulary that misrepresents the teaching of the Church and which permits revisionism. The language of regressive liberal religion is a trojan horse which has been used to great effect in a way far far more destructive than the horse within the walls of Troy was used to bring down a once mighty city.
A teenage wasteland.
If you haven't already discovered from reading this blog even after a brief encounter, yours truly is far from perfect. That said, this same blogger knows the difference between sacrilege and sanctity, and most of what attempts to pass for Catholic worship simply shouldn't. White washed sepulchers reinventing the Liturgy every single week, year after year, parish priests and their fluffy flocks of rapidly aging hippies do real damage to the faith of young people by promoting cheap spiritualities and theological platitudes that are as far from the Gospel as margarine is from butter. Accept no substitutes!
