Old Rite and New Rite Article

The Latin Mass: Old Rites and New Rites in Today's World | Anthony E. Clark, Ph.D. | March 28, 2007
This article is full of great information regarding the black and white differences between the Tridentine and Pauline Rites of the Church. Parts of the Mass are explained, timed and the article is a pleasant non-biased approach to understanding the new and old liturgy. Of particular interest to me was this quote:
"For the Liturgy is not about us, but about God. Forgetting about God is the most imminent danger of our age. As against this, the Liturgy should be setting up a sign of God's presence."(from the preface of Dom Alcuin Reid's book, by then Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, The Organic Development of the Liturgy)
A H/T again to The Kentucky Catholic Eye for this informative article.

This question is not judgemental, but I am curious. Is Divine Mercy Sunday and Novena part of your search for the Truth?

I pray You and Your Family find the Peace in Truth !!

God Bless

I hope to take my oldest son to a Divine Mercy service this weekend. We do have a few here that are being offered.
