What would mass have been like Pre-Vatican II?
There are some Catholics who don’t have fond memories of Pre-Vatican II; and even the Latin Mass.
But, my question is: Does it have to do with the Mass or is it more about how our faith has been taught and learned from years of past?!
Once upon a time, when questions were asked about our faith the common response was, “because that is how it has always been.” I have pondered on why so many Catholics were given this answer and I have come to the conclusion that many of the answers were not known or understood by many adult Catholics themselves. Thus adults being adults don’t want to look uneducated or unknowledgeable especially to their children or grandchildren or even those being catechists to children.
Our parents and grandparents didn’t necessarily understand the rich beauty of our Catholic Faith yet, they were faithful to the Church. Why?
I think it is because they may not have understood our faith in a historical or theological knowledge but they understood it emotionally…spiritually.
Something deep down inside of them stirred to keep them going to Mass…to keep them, us, on this journey of faith.
Today, we have access to learn all about our faith through many avenues, sources….internet searches, learning/study videos provided by some excellent Catholic Resources, and many many many more!
Which brings me back to the LATIN MASS!!!!
Shouldn’t all Catholics be able to experience their faith to it’s fullest?!
To experience their faith in a way that they feel fulfills them the best?!
Shouldn’t all Catholics be able to have a chance to participate in a Latin Mass if that is how they would feel fulfilled? What about all the Catholics who have never had the opportunity to experience a Latin mass?
JOIN ME AND MANY MANY OTHER CATHOLICS….
