Thx especially for the Van Hove review. I never feel like I know enough theology or history to read Van Hove, but I take the plunge anyway, and learn some thing by it.

Is this available on any other web page? I'd like to read it but when I click on the link I get a message from my virus software saying that it's an "attack page," whatever that is.

Gail: I just got the same message. Bizarre. Anyhow, the entire address is on the "Inside the Vatican" newsflash page.

How much one feels at home reading Martin Mosebach knowledgeable position on the Church's revolution of the 1960's.

With an encompassing focus, devotion of time and fixed determination he has not just searched but revealed with accuracy the true meaning of what happened to our Church, right after Vatican II.

The damage was nowhere more evident than in the ravaging and plunder of our Liturgy, which he defines it thus: 'formless', 'the secularization of the sacrament of the altar', 'a catastrophe of the grandest proportions' etc.

What is missing in the review (I'm still waiting for my ordered book) is the real culprit which remains un-identified, obscure. However what stuck to my mind is the quote from Paul VI "the smoke of satan had entered the Church".

Though such internal hurtful agent has been long active to corrode what has been the Mass for centuries, Mosebach explains, it is incongruous how it all changed suddenly, drastically.

Coverage of the Liturgy Convention of the Archdiocese of Colombo (Aquinas University College Sept. 1-2-3) acquires meaninful actuality by the recent announcement that Archbishop Ranjith has been elevated to the rank of Cardinal, which will obviously improve the presence of traditionalists in the College of Cardinals.
