Coronavirus: God’s Punishment Turns into Blessing for the Liturgy
It’s self-evident that the coronavirus has been a divine chastisement for so many popes, bishops and priests who humiliated and trivialised the Catholic Liturgy. God used the virus to punish the Church with a worldwide shut down of the liturgy. Now, the virus is forcing on the Catholic clergy many liturgical improvements. This is visible from the "Guidance for the Celebration of Mass” which the English and Welsh Bishops published last Thursday for the re-opening of their churches on 4th July.
Liturgical Distancing Is Back
