If you agree with everything I've said then I guess you also agree with this, since it is just expounding further on everything I said:
Don’t get me wrong, one should participate in the mass, however, the problem is the mindset that the only way to participate is to show it by standing, singing and responding out loud as if one were the chorus and the altar server. As I said before, real participation is internal, and someone singing and responding may not be participating in the mass internally at all, while someone who is silent during the whole mass may be really participating internally. You can have a congregation that stands, sings and responds and yet are not participating at all in the mass and their mind is on the outfit they are wearing and whether the men are paying attention to their short dresses and tight tops and a million other things. This I call the punch your card in on Sunday Catholics, where they go and sing stand/ sit in military order like sheep and never really participate internally, and then they go to live the other 166 hours of the week wearing short shorts, fornicating, adultery, cheating others in business, lying…… No, there is nothing wrong with real participation however, whenever anyone talks of active participation let it be a big red flag, you are dealing with a lover of novelty, a person who thinks they invented the end all be all to save the Church.
The proponents of this active participation and communism have much in common.
Communism has resulted in = Stalin and the USSR, the Iron Curtain, Siberia, Mao and China , Vietnam, North Korea, Pol Pot Cambodia, Castro Cuba, Hugo Chavez and Maduro Venezuela…… but all the communist idealist say that those are not real communists that that is not real communism and then go on to speak of a communist Utopia.
Active participation has resulted in = the Holy Week mass changes of 1954, the mass changes practically every year thereafter, and eventually the Novus Ordo mass, conga masses, Black Gospel masses, Hindu masses…. And homosexual clergy. But all the proponents of stand/sing/respond (active participation) say that the Novus Ordo is not real active participation, that it is theological error that is to blame. They say that had active participation been done right, the world would have been changed.
Communist and proponents of active participation are both dreamers living in unreality.
