Look, Ma, no hands!

Well, look: One Peter Five was crazy enough to let me publish another essay! A sample:

“Hence, while the liturgy, like many other things in the Church, does admit of development and alteration, once we shift from tolerating such changes to promoting them, the Magisterium finds itself in a death struggle with the Orwellian temptation. To extend the metaphor, asserting that the imaginary country called ‘Liturgica’ — which represents the Church’s longstanding liturgy and discipline — has always been a source of chaos and constant change is not merely false: it is a species of temporal totalitarianism I label Liturgical Modernism.”

Head on over to One Peter Five to read the rest of “An Orwellian Reform of Worship: “We Have Always Been at War With Liturgica’“. Constructive commentary welcome!
