Somethings to think about…..

1. God is present in the community as when 2 or 3 are gathered in His name, he is present among them, but this presence is different than God being in the Tabernacle, His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.

Should not the person that you addressing have your attention by your orientation? That is to say you should be facing the person that you’re talking to. If God is in the Tabernacle, should not the priest face that same direction, since well, most of the Mass he’s talking to God and not the congregation? Just saying.

2. Should not things of the supernatural order be treated as things of the supernatural order. We as Roman Catholics don’t genuflect to anyone but Jesus in the Tabernacle. (Though I’ve made the mistake of genuflecting in other places). Genuflection is not an action of the natural order, or the ordinary. Similarly in the action of receiving Holy Communion, should we not receive something that’s supernatural in a supernatural way? We do many things with our hands, but how many things we do directly with our tongues? Just saying.

3. A catastrophic result of Versus Populum Masses is that the faithful now “must understand.” what’s being said. As I said in point 1, most of the time Father is talking to God, not us the lay faithful. Would not a re-orientation reduce the “need for understanding” on the part of the Faithful?….Just saying

4. Last but not least…Have you noticed, Zero trying to play nice with Catholics all of a sudden? Though if Zero REALLY wants to play nice, he ought not to quote Cardinal Bernadin, but rather Cardinal Ratzinger
