Since I have writer's block I'd like to thank all my readers for their encouraging and very intelligent comments. I find that it is very often the case that most of the good stuff, worth reading, on this blog is actually found in the comment box from people other than the poor blog host! For those of you who think I am a schismatic, or a heretic, well you're welcome to think that, but I have no plans on leaving the Roman Church for all her shortcomings and want of Tradition. I think that something very drastic would have to happen, in my living memory, for me to do that.
In the meanwhile I had begun the composition of a post on concepts of waking memory and the Anamnesis in a Tolkienian context - something about the presence of Christ in even the most minute points of liturgical tradition, and that the abolition of these small things is a real deprivation, and detracts somewhat from a more complete and authentic Christological liturgical experience...what is defective about modern liturgy is precisely that it is largely made up, with no real ground in Tradition - which is Christological.
I don't know...I always start out with a ''good idea'', but one cannot simply summon the Muse. Do let me know if you think this is worth pursuing.
