Hey, if you can have “found poetry”, you can have found hymnody, too.
From Sacrosanctum concilium 48, via From the Anchor Hold:
“The Church, therefore, is very concerned
that the Christian faithful
at this mystery of faith
not as outsiders
or mute spectators,
but that, understanding the mystery
through the rites and prayers,
they take part in the sacred action
that they be instructed
by the word of God,
that they be nourished
at the table of the Lord’s Body,
that they give thanks to God,
that, offering the immaculate host
not only through the priest but with him,
they may learn to offer themselves,
and that, through Christ
they may be drawn day after day
into more perfect union
with God and with one another,
so that in the end
God may be all in all.
It’s a wonderful mystical vision of the great importance and sacredness of every part of the Mass, and of the people of God offering up themselves to Him, joining their little sacrifices to Jesus’ great one and thus becoming more fully His Body. No meal if there’s no sacrifice, and His re-presented sacrifice must become ours.
It’s not “yay, we’re so holy and cool that God has to love us!” or “Jesus isn’t any more present in the Eucharist than anything else”. Yes, you can see how some people could take it that way. But then, we see every day on the Internet that reading comprehension assumes some desire to understand what was written.
