Dialogue Mass: What's the point?
#10
I think this goes all ways, those that are reflective and silent, those that want to participate where it's allowed, and those that would like to sing the parts of the ordinary.Catholics should be allowed. We are not congregationalists, and for those that are Classical Music aficionados there is High Mass.  What irks me a bit is when Low Mass is required to be Silent. There is no good reason, and I've heard priests after Mass, as they come down the Altar steps tell visitors, at St. X, we do not respond, nor recite the Pater Noster with the Priest. I can understand a warning in the little Missals in the pews to the extent responses should be soft, but banning them ?? I also remember the Sisters teaching us the rosary was the Only devotion which could be prayed at Mass, thereby pooh poohing those little books of devotion popular back then. I don't know from the New Mass except on EWTN. I discovered that on my way back. It was like lightening in a bottle. There are parts which are chanted in Latin, and it woke me up. It wasn't long I remembered the Oratre Fratres, the Suscipiat, and the Pater Noster. In my over enthusiasm I would sing the priest's parts at home in my privacy until I remembered that was a no no. I know I helped more than one priest there through the Libera nos by telepathy.
