Facta, Non Verba
From Rorate Caeli: emphases theirs.
Pope Francis then asked: “Are our temples places of adoration? Do they foster adoration? Do our liturgical celebrations foster adoration?”. Judas Maccabeus and the people “were zealous for God’s temple because it was the house of God, God’s dwelling place, and they went as a community to find God there, they went to adore”.
“But, I think – I say this humbly – that maybe we Christians have lost a little the sense of adoration, and we think: we go to the Temple, we come together as brothers – that’s good, it’s great! – but this is where God is. And we worship God.”
Yes. Have we?
What about the Pinocchio Mass, for example? Does it foster adoration?
Or perhaps is the Tango Mass more in tune with God’s dwelling place?
What about, for example, openly admitting past mistakes (so that they can never be used as excuses for other liturgical wreckovations) and crushing down very hard on the abominations happening all over the West?
I seem to detect a certain dissonance between words and facts, and you know which ones speak louder.
Keep praying for Francis; that he may, one day, always practice what he, at times, preaches.
