Priestly Shorts and Bizarre Tabernacles

I found myself today visiting a church, as I sometimes do, and not realizing that they were about to say Mass. Unfortunately not all the chapels I visit to say my rosary are traditional, so I occasionally run into the Novus Ordo mass. I end up saying my rosary on the way back home in order not to attend, but today was different.

I saw all the elderly people doing their best to shout out the right responses, Father interrupting the sacred prayers to make jokes to the faithful, and Our Blessed Lord placed indifferently into the hands of all, and His particles potentially falling upon the floor. We truly have lost the beauty of Catholicism in the Novus Ordo.

These poor souls, who look for Jesus Christ, find Him in a place of dishonour. It is as if they go to a drying well, and try to survive on the drops of water that is left. The reason the Novus Ordo mass is so dangerous is because of its Protestant style. Holy Communion becomes just a piece of bread to be passed around by anyone, and the priests that celebrate this sacred ceremony quickly change into their shorts and tshirts in order to not be recognized in the streets for their holy position. How will anyone take Catholicism seriously when they see this? Why would anyone convert if this is all we believe? People may say I am not accepting of the modern times, but why in the world would we want to make our modern times a place of frivolousness and irreverence?

We are brought on this earth to respect and fear our beloved God, not place Him in silly looking tabernacles to be brought out and mocked. We must pray tradition is brought back, and these horrible acts of irreverence are stopped, so that those who sit in these modern day pews, may drink their fill in the true wells of Our Lord, and not through brambles which the Devil has placed there.
