A follow up on my post below.
One of the reasons I get animated about this is that I do want to pursue the "reform of the reform," and I, too, don't want the abuses.
More than that, I believe there are questions of reorienting the celebration of the liturgy to where it is meant to be, but isn't; this is where the issue of music comes in -- and why it's more than bare questions of orthodoxy, but also simply what music.
And all this takes tremendous effort, and patience, both because of ordinary inertia at work in moving any organization, but also because so many of our fellow Catholics are used to what's not adequate, they are attached to it, and so, there will be resistance from other than ideologues.
. . . And you see, this is where a pastor needs help -- and he sure could use the help of anyone of a "traditional" bent.
And guess what? He won't get it from a lot of so-called "traditionalists" -- at least, not as they are (mis)represented online.
There is a set of self-described "tradionalists" who can't and won't be bothered; they're happy in an enclave somewhere, or they prefer to nurse their grievances, or they don't want to get into the mess of struggle.
And that's fine; but if things don't get better the way you want them to, this may be part of the story. (And please don't post horror stories about pastors or others in control going the wrong direction or protecting the status quo. I'm not talking about those situations. I'm talking about where the pastor wants to do good things.)
