I did not say that I hate the Pauline Mass. But I just said I loved it more than I love the Pauline Mass.
I LOVE BOTH MASSES. BUT I LOVE THE TLM MORE.
But, YOU KNOW, some old guy, who thinks he knows everything there is to KNOW about Catholicism.
And so he reacts...
The Mass is the Mass. It is not a ceremony to watch. It is Christ's sacrifice for our redemption. At Mass we exercise our Priesthood, [WE ARE CHURCH! Wooohoo!!! MST!!!] side by side with the minister, the ordained priest and participate in the Last Supper in remembrance of Him to whom we dedicate our lives fully and without reservation. It's impossible to do that if you don't understand the language [He thinks people who attend the TLM are idiots who don't know Latin. He knows that based on his assumptions.] and if the minister doesn't acknowledge your presence except for an occasional "Dominus Vobiscum." [The priest needs to acknowledge our presence to confect the Holy Sacrifice. So, MST!] I'm old enough to remember what we had before [no wonder why he left!] and I know all the theological reasons why it has changed. [HE KNOWS?!?!?!] I also know [HE ALWAYS KNOWS?!?!?!] that the changes started way before Vatican II and that Vatican II only dressed the table that Pius XII had already begun to set. [Probably a classmate of Anscar. HEY PAUL! Ever heard of Pius XII and his condemnation of liturgical archaelogism in Mediator Dei? I think you KNOW that don't you? You have an STL!]. Now let me see you defend the Pauline Mass!] If you can't handle the 21st century, [yes, I do I was born in the 21st century. Not like you.] just tough it out while you're here and hope that when you get to heaven you'll have all the reactionary Tridentine spirituality [?!?! Who is grumpier here?! I just said I loved the TLM!] you always wanted without ever having truly lived it. [Now, he judges me. Look at him! Studied in Rome for his STL as a layman? Come on, I am no idiot. ]***

Well, I guess a grumpy old man is stuck in the 60s and he thinks he is more knowledgeable of the "theological reasons" why Vatican II changed the Mass. Maybe because I thanked the Lord for Summorum Pontificum. That turned on the "Grumpy switch".
I can't wait to hear the "theological reasons you know", Paul, before I even answer point by point what you claim you KNOW really happened even at the time of Pius XII.
Because YOU KNOW, dear TPC readers, PAUL DION, ES-TEE-EL, KNOWS better than that old guy who now calls himself Pope. And YOU KNOW, PAUL DION, ES-TEE-EL, KNOOOOWWWSSS, that when I get to Heaven, I get to live the reactionary Tridentine spirituality I always wanted, because YOU KNOW, PAUL DION, ES-TEE-EL, KNOOOWWWSSS this for a fact because, YOU KNOW that PAUL DION, ES-TEE-EL, KNOOOWWWSSS because he has an ESSSS-----TEEEEE----ELLLLLLL.
"I am so excited and I just can't hide it."
I guess you are too old to know that line too, eh.
Start answering Paul Dion, STL.
I am waiting.
By the way, I do not have an STL. But I KNOW what and how to answer you.
I have Pope Benedict's writings to back me up among other things.
What do you have? "I am so excited and I just can't hide it."
Oh yeah, I forgot.
You have an ESSS ---- TEEEE ---- ELLLLLL!!!!!
