Next time someone accuses you of being “more Catholic than the pope” tell them, the Missouri Synod Lutherans are more Catholic than the pope.

    These Lutherans show more reverence towards their little communion-snacks than most Novus Ordo Catholics show towards the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ!

    Visiting an SSPX institution in southern Ontario recently where a former Lutheran Church was purchased and being set up as an SSPX parish, I was told that they did not have to anything to the altar as it was perfectly located for traditional ad orientem worship.

    Ugh….turning his back on the people!
    I like the lay minister serving communion to the pastor. I’m surprised that this hasn’t been incorporated into the Novous Ordo yet.

    Have you ever seen Ingmar Bergman’s Winter Light? The artist’s intent may have been to prove that God doesn’t exist, but, man, I find the archaic language of the prayers and the medieval altarpiece irresistible. The Lutheran minister says the consecration ad orientum, and there’s even a communion rail. (The literal translation of the original title is “The Communicants”.)

    Years after I saw that movie, I saw its making-of documentary. It turns out all that wonderful church artwork wasn’t built specifically for the picture, but came directly from churches that were being modernized at the time. I’d feel superior, but of course we Catholics started our own “wreckovations” less than a decade later.

    LMAO Awesome. It’s funny (and sad) because it’s true.
