Sacramentum Caritatis

I'm just home, and about to read Sacramentum Caritatis - the Sacrament of Love!

Here is an article from the Age speaking about the document, featuring respectable words from one of our own Fathers!

"Father Glen Tattersall, Melbourne archdiocese chaplain for the traditional Latin liturgy, said the Pope was concerned not to let the Mass imitate forms from secular culture. Instead, he wanted the liturgy to be closer to the Latin liturgy.

"Benedict has very strong ideas about music. He thinks most modern so-called liturgical music is pretty trashy," he said.

Father Tattersall said the Pope thought liturgical music should reflect the sacred quality of Gregorian chant, in which the music depends on and reflects the text, usually from the Bible.

One liberal Melbourne priest said the strictures would be observed "only when the bishop comes to our church".
