Poem
Editor: a poem from Pius Blog:


UPDATED CHURCH

Latin's gone,
Peace is too,
Singin' and shoutin'
From every pew.

Altar's turned round,
Priest is too,
Commentator's shoutin'
Page twenty-two.

Communion rail's gone,
Stand up straight,
Kneeling suddenly
Went out of date.

Processions are forming
In every aisle,
Salvation organized
Single file.

Rosary's out,
Psalms are in,
Hardly ever hear
A word against sin.

Listen to the Lector,
Hear how he reads.
Please stop rattlin'
Those Rosary beads!

Father's looking puzzled,
Doesn't know his part,
Used to know the whole Mass
In Latin by heart.

I hope all the changes
Are just about done,
And that they won't drop Bingo
Before I've won.


I found this poem printed in a book on the history of Sacred Heart Parish in Aberdeen, SD. The editor comments, "This ditty, composed by some anonymous bard, came to our attention recently. While we may not agree with its contents, we feel that it does have a message that is pertinent to our time."

:clap:
At least somebody likes it. ;)
The Psalms are always "in." The Rosary itself is a knock-off Psalter of a sort.

Explain what you mean by "knock off psalter." The Rosary is the Blessed Virgin Mary's psalter.

Historically - hagiographical  tales of Simon Stock aside - the Rosary developed as a way for the illiterate believers to associate themselves with the Divine Office. (This is also the origin of the Angelus prayers.) In recent years, in fact, this point has been hammered home by traditionalists disaffected with the propagation of Jo. Paul's Luminous Mysteries. That is to say, an association is made between the 150 Hail Mary's and the 150 Psalms.
A "knock off psalter"?

That's Angelic Psalter to you, Mr. Credo.

I am beginning to think Credo hates his Mother. If you or I said something like that about his prophet Mohammad he would attack us.

He writes like an out of work WPA journalist.
Not even a consideration of the content of my post, only two defensive ad hominem attacks. Interesting.
