God Works for Those Who Wait for Him (Isaiah 64:1-4)

A thought on the new liturgical movement in the Catholic Church:

Many are frustrated as it seems we have waited 40 years, since the promulgation of the Novus Ordo in 1969, for the Church to reproof the “spirit of Vatican II” crowd whose laissez-faire  interpretations of the council documents led to the Holy Mass presented as something casual, entertaining, or improvisational.

Yet it seems more and more evident that the Church’s approach is genius. One could even say that the Church’s approach is divinely inspired, as it is modeled by God’s approach to the Israelites in the desert.

See if you find any similarities with the way in which the Church has handled the “spirit of Vatican II” crowd from 1969 to 2009, and how God chose to deal with the Israelites in the desert for 40 years:

Wait them out. Be patient with them as they simply get older and lose their passion for rebellion. In the meantime, appeal to and teach the next generation (mainly seminaries with hearts on fire for the new liturgical movement) who will lead us into paradise with a recovery of a sense of sacred and a return to a reverent Mass.

Was Pope John Paul II our Moses?

Is Pope Benedict XVI our Joshua?
