Certainly, the Second Vatican Council wished to promote greater active participation [and] fine initiatives were taken along these lines. However we cannot close our eyes to the disaster, the devastation and the schism that the modern promoters of a living liturgy caused by remodeling the Church’s liturgy according to their ideas. They forgot that the liturgical act is not just a PRAYER, but also and above all a MYSTERY in which something is accomplished for us that we cannot fully understand but that we must accept and receive in faith, love, obedience and adoring silence.

A Visual Chronicle of Parish Life: Day 2
published 25 February 2014 by Gwyneth Holston

ODAY’S PAINTING is by Jose Gallegos y Arnosa. He was a Spanish painter who particularly excelled at representing the flash of sumptuous fabric against dark interiors.

I particularly like his painting, “The Choirboys” because it captures the matter-of-fact obliviousness that young altarboys frequently display. Also, I love the brushwork he used in depicting the banner and inlay work along the top of the painting. Click on the image to view it larger.
