I see that the highly intelligent Fr Zed (who clearly knows as much about Liturgy as a pig...no sorry, knows so much about Liturgy that yours truly, someone more than half his age and probably a ''heretic'' by his Traddie standards, can point out errors in his podcasts of Vespers - which seem to magically disappear whenever I point them out on Facebook!) has posted about concelebration. It seems that he is completely ignorant that concelebration is older and more praiseworthy than Low Mass, and has even posted that photo which I find so utterly repugnant to Liturgy it literally made me sick to my stomach when I first saw it - you know the one where all those priests are saying their private Masses when they could quite easily have High Mass instead...oh but wait, they won't get their fifty bob for having one High Mass, and so they have cheapened the Grace of God to reading a few prayers from a book inaudibly...ding-a-ling-ling, Mexican wave of the Sacrament, and Bob's your uncle - God's Grace procured at low low effort at Low Low Mass.
Hmmmm but the great conceited Fr Zed isn't interested in the views of mere lay people like me. With all due respect though, padre, in my experience lay people know a lot more about Liturgy than the clergy...in fact, the clergy are so woefully ignorant of Liturgy that I wonder that the seven years they spent in seminary did them any good at all!
Dear readers, Fr Zed is a Traddie and therefore knows nothing whatsoever about Liturgy. But then what do mere heretics like me know? I just sit at home reading the decrees of Popes and pointing out the obvious shortcomings of Traddieland logic, their hypocrisy and of course the want of consistency in podcasts of 1962 Vespers. I don't suck up to the clergy simply because they are clergy, unlike some - I don't suck up to anyone. Of course, insignificant bloggers like me are beneath the notice of the eminent Fr Zed, rather like the the confrontation of the Hobbit Merry and the Lord of the Ringwraiths - the Wraith-king heeded him no more than a worm in the mud.
Let it be known that when Traddieland finally collapses, unable to sustain the fantasy and pretence of obedience to Rome and their own ''initiative'' vis Summorum Pontificum, I'll be the first to gloat and proclaim that my views were right in the first place. May this conceited chap fall low with his American opinions, and so low that none can foresee his getting up again.
