I know I put those liturgical directives somewhere
I have no problem with altar girls. As long as they ring the Sanctus bells on cue. The kerfuffle prompted in some corners by a reported new Vatican rollback on liturgical innovation seems a bit misplaced. Why argue over who enters the sanctuary when the whole notion of the sanctuary has been done away with, as in the cathedrals at Los Angeles (also above), or Milwaukee, or at Evry, France (where a papal Mass is shown being celebrated)? Why stipulate the replacement of entry gates in altar rails when most all the altar rails themselves have been removed? Dale Price has more thoughts on the topic: Wonder how he really feels?
