RESTORE OR REBUILD THE CHURCH AND THE MASS?
Extracts from a recent Crisis Magazine article (here):
Perhaps the best reflection of our experience that Sunday was considering those filling the pews at St. Francis de Sales. It was not a tiny group of elderly people who remember how beautiful Mass was back in the 1950s, but rather a very mixed demographic that included several young families, and there were 200 or more in attendance. The fact of the matter is, the Old Mass has become new again, rediscovered by a new generation who will appreciate it, something else Mosebach points out in The Heresy of Formlessness. It is not simple nostalgia that brings young Catholics to the Mass, but a need for a deeper experience than they had been receiving from those who run the churches, the generation that embraced a twisted understanding of the so-called “Spirit” of Vatican II.
Thinking this traditional Latin Mass, I could not help but call to mind one of the parish revitalization programs popular today . . . At its core, the “Rebuilt program” (one encouraged actively in my home archdiocese) aims to create a welcome “weekend experience” for the community . . . While everything in the Mass my daughter and I experienced that late-summer Sunday was pointed to the Eucharistic Sacrifice, the Rebuilt model appears to focus on everything else.
The capital campaign to help restore St. Francis de Sales Oratory is called “Tradition for Tomorrow.” Judging from the number of those in the pew and their average age, and the simple desire of our teen daughter to explore something other than our usual parish for a Sunday Mass, the real success in growing the Church and saving souls will take place when churches [and the Mass] are restored, not Rebuilt.
