Promoting orthodoxy, new Liturgical Changes proposed by me.

I sometimes feel that the belief of people in the Real Presence of Jesus is diminished by being allowed to touch Jesus with your hands. This happens because of something called indult. So my suggestions are as follows:
1. Kneeling after the Agnus Dei: Standing may be reverent, but kneeling is ADORING! which is exactly what we do when have Communion. (Yes, I’ve been practicing this)
2. Kneeling for Communion: Is standing to Jesus really an option? The point is to adore Jesus!
3. Communion on the tounge: this is because he comes to us in the most blessed sacrament through the priest who did the consecration.
4. Bring back the altar rails: Quite frankly communion goes much faster if you do it this way. and two we come as little children to the altar of the Lord.
5. Bring back Ite Missa Est. Which means go, you are sent forth. This reminds us of our call to evangelize the nations after we have heard the Scriptures and have Jesus in our hearts.
The problem since Vatican II is that it has been liberalized and the sacredness of the mass isn’t there. Because Vatican II really didn’t define what was going on, we’ve seen (and still see) abuses in the Liturgy.
An example; I’m sorry, I don’t care if it’s the “teen” mass, YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE CLAPPING DURING THE AGNUS DEI! That is absolutely not reverant by any means, it is the 2nd highest point during mass, there should be awe and revernce towards Jesus.
Example 2: Some of the songs are not even appropriate for the Liturgy, God Bless America DOES NOT BELONG IN A LITURGICAL CELEBRATION OF THE MOST HOLY SACRIFICE OF THE MASS! Also several popular protestant songs (Amazing Grace) have krept into Catholic worship aids. The music must match the litrugy, and also be faithful to the Magisterial teaching of the Church
Let’s find out what happens when I go visit some Churches in the OC and come with orthodox practices of the Catholic Faith…..
Amen!
