Früher war nicht alles gut und auch nicht besser ... ! Der Lebensstandart war niedrig und es ging oft nur um das tägliche Brot ! Die Menschen waren arm, aber Ihr Glaube war um so stärker und es gab keinen Sonntag ohne H. Messe. Beichte und Andachten gehörten einfach zum ganz normalen Glaubensleben. Besonders nach dem Krieg waren die Kirchen randvoll ! Bei uns gab es eine Hauptkirche und zwei Filialen, diese waren so voll, das die Jugendlichen stehen mussten. Alle waren da : Kinder, Jugendliche, Eltern mit ihren Kleinkinder und Großeltern. Dann kam der Wohlstand und mit ihm das Konzil. Sichtbar nahm der Glaube ab ! Seit Jahren sind unsere zwei Filialkirchen geschlossen, die Hauptkirche im Innern verkleinert und ist inzwischen schon wieder zu groß. Der Zeitgenosse fragt sich : .. wie ist das möglich ... ? Wo sind die vielen Menschen ? Es gibt eine vage Antwort : .. der Wohlstand, die Abtreibung, die vergessene Christenlehre, Ökumene und laue Priester ! Die heutigen Kirchenaustritte …More

Napier: "Looking at this pictures reminds me of my childhood some 70 years ago. That was a time when there was a universe between the Clergy especially Bishops and Lay Faithful! Some might call it the age of supreme Clericalism. To me it’s a reminder of what we should never ever be again!"
And, "The point is Jesus was not in the Temple where similar sacred liturgy was celebrated, he was with the people especially those considered to be outcasts or even worse sinners! The Church today is more with the latter than the former. That’s my life experience!"

"Ignatius, after his conversion in 1521, had to get the proper foundational education so that he could move forward in his new mission. At 33 years old he started attending a basic public grammar school in Barcelona so that he could later go to university. Ignatius sat with school children to learn Latin. He then studied Latin and theology for the next ten years."

Pews are mostly a Protestant invention. The Protestants emphasized the pastor’s preaching as the most important part of the Liturgy and understood the church to be some sort of ‘school,’ where the ‘students’ had to be able to sit to learn the Bible from their pastor. It was also a way to raise money via pew rents.
The more I attend the Traditional Latin Mass (which hopefully will recover its rightful place as the sole ‘Ordinary Form’ of the Roman Rite), the more I am uncomfortable with the pews and the mechanical, sometimes almost nonsensical, ‘novus-ordoish’ sequence of standing-kneeling-sitting-standing-etc. during Mass.

"...pews are mostly a Protestant invention." -Thus explaining their presence in English Churches in the thirteenth century before Martin Luther was even born. :P The "modern" pew was already present and in existence in the 14th century. The Protestant Reformation didn't even begin until the 16th century, two hundred years later..
"The more I attend the Traditional Latin Mass... the more I am uncomfortable with the pews..."
Look out everybody, we've got a neo-Trad who feels the centuries-old Traditional Latin Mass isn't "traditional" enough for him. The Church has been "doin' it wrong" for all these centuries now that some zealous "ex Novus Ordo" just discovered TLM.
Gotta love people like this.
