I’ve already talked quite extensively on why the music we hear at Mass is more than a matter of personal taste. I’ve already explained why the “art for art’s sake” at the Mass is just as much a problem as the former, just in the opposite direction. I’ve also taken the time to address why the obligatory pre-Mass Rosary can be abused, and why things that clutter up the end of Mass, like announcements, “children’s bulletins,” and so on, are just as dangerous to our souls as bad music.
I gave good reasons for all of those things, and I think I made fairly convincing arguments, but there’s so much more to it than people just not knowing the proper forms.
I may have been addressing the wrong problem all this time, and now it’s well past time to fix that.
