Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Liturgical Education of Religious

February 4th, 2010, Promulgated by Gen

Nod of the miter to the New Liturgical Movement for putting this up (my emphasis added):

Cardinal Ca?izares, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, had the idea – which he proposed to me (Cardinal Franc Rod?) – to produce an interdicasterial document, with a first part entrusted to our dicastery and a second seen to by the dicastery for Divine Worship, about the liturgical formation of men and women religious. This, too, seems very important to me because on the one hand there is a certain “ignorance,” a certain lack of liturgical knowledge and training in young men and women religious; on the other hand, there are also liturgical fantasies that are not always of good taste and which do not correspond to the desire and the will of the Church and to the spirit of the Liturgy itself. Some corrective measures appear, therefore, necessary. This part will be the responsibility of the Congregation for Divine Worship, and together we will produce a single document, consisting of two parts, that regarding prayer and that regarding liturgical formation. I think that both parts are necessary and will – I hope – benefit the spiritual life of men and women religious.

Good taste – so I guess this means no more teaching Masses, no more “dialogue” homilies, no more white albs on WoC followers.

Oh, but that’s right – “Diocesan norms trump those from Rome. Ours come first.” Guess who.

This . . .

 . . . does not equal this:

    But, Anon, aren't we just marching Forward in Hope? The top picture's just for those morons who cling naively to things like Tradition and piety. We need to embrace our diversity and celebrate its richness! The nun in the second picture is obviously standing up for her views – that in itself is extremely sacramental, because she's exercising her God-given free will.

    (Sarcasm – off)

    Nuns for choice, nuns for womens ordination. How about we get rid of womens religious orders? They are doing more damage than good in the modern Church.
