New Liturgical Movement: A Mother Writes about Seeing the Old Mass for the First Time

New Liturgical Movement: A Mother Writes about Seeing the Old Mass for the First Time





"The Missa Cantata was like nothing I had ever experienced in the Church.
The smells and the chants made it a heavenly experience. I wondered how
I would feel about the priest standing ‘ad orientem’. Would I be able
to see? The answer is, no, I couldn’t really, but it only brought home
that the priest is offering the sacrifice FOR us, not TO us. The focus
was on God. I have and do know several pious, holy priests, but nothing
they have ever done spoke to me as this position of the priest during
the Latin Mass. All eyes were on God, and it wasn’t something you saw,
but you could almost hear the beat of angel’s wings. Yes, it is that
profound of an experience."
