Where Are the Fruits? By Father Franz Schmidberger

Francis addressed on May 7 professors and students of the Pontifical Liturgical Institute of Sant'Anselmo, defending the new liturgy under three aspects:

- an active and fruitful participation in the liturgy
- the animation of ecclesial communion through the Eucharist and the sacraments
- the impulse for evangelisation which comes from liturgical life and involves all the baptised.

Cannot all these aspects be used verbatim against the Novus Ordo Missae and contemporary liturgical practice?

- The supposedly fruitful participation in the liturgy has become an indescribable chaos.
- The ecclesial community is split into hundreds of groups and movements.
- One sees very little missionary work, but all the more apostasy, loss of faith and abandonment of religious practice.

An example: 11.9 million people went to mass on Sunday in Germany in 1960. Before the Corona crisis in 2019, there were 2.07M left.

It's a Roman Circus!
Zeer correcte weergave van de werkelijkheid. Alleen het Universele Tridentijnse Romeinse Katholieke geloof van voor het Tweede Vaticaanse Concilie groeit en verdiept, waardoor er steeds meer nieuwe gelovigen en priesterstudenten komen.
What in the world are these clergy doing ?
