sharing a personal anecdote.
I've recently been attending some meetings at church, only to hear a well-respected elderly parishioner say on two occasions,"The Mass is a celebration - so we should sing". I had great problems with that.
Whatever happened to the Mass being a Sacrifice, a Memorial, a Sacred Banquet? Do people get a sense of these three things nowadays when they go to mass?
Yes, the battles we have to fight. Its all about proper catechesis, which is sorely lacking nowadays.
