Quote for Day: Valerie Schultz on Revised Catholic Liturgy

Quote for the day: Valerie Schultz writing (inter alia) about the newly, newly revised old-new Catholic liturgy with its mouthsful of new-old cracker-jack words: 

But it also occurs to me that big weird words are the least of our problems as Church.  When we go along with political theories that posit that we are emphatically not our brother’s and sister’s keeper, or denounce the principles of Catholic social justice as socialism, or lobby for unjust laws that discriminate against our fellow human beings, or continue to churn with the scandal of sexual abuse of minors, maybe the language of the rituals inside our parishes is a small issue.

And she's right.
