Archbishop Muller: Liturgy reform a success!

According to a report in the Tablet today, Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, credits the Second Vatican Council’s liturgy reform with stemming the tide of the de-Christianization of the West.

“It is precisely because the liturgy was renewed in spirit and rite that it has proved an effective remedy against a godless culture.”

The renewed liturgy was “a good means of evangelizing”, he said. “All Catholics who think and feel with the Church realize that the reform was a success.”

Well then, it’s official. I don’t think and feel with the Church, at least not the fairytale gingerbread house of worship that Archbishop Müller dwells in.

The rhetoric of these newchurchmen is strikingly similar to the dismissive proclamations of those global warming freaks who claim the matter settled even as it’s being reported that Antarctic sea ice has been growing at a record pace.

While Archbishop Müller’s comments are indeed laughable, they are no laughing matter.

Make no mistake, he isn’t simply expressing his personal opinion here; he is letting us know that “the mind of the Church,” read, the mind of those now running the show in Rome, has changed.  No longer do we have a pope who recognizes, as Pope Benedict did, that the so-called “reform” of the sacred liturgy following Vatican II has been a disaster.

In other words, no longer is the state of the liturgy understood as a problem to be solved, it’s considered the solution, and more than this, you can be sure that this presumed “success” of the liturgical reform will form a substantial part of the bedrock upon which the “reform” of the Church’s structures to come will be constructed.
