What Are We Doing?

via Fr. Z, comes Bp. Schneider's "Five Wounds" inflicted on Christ’s Mystical Body through our liturgy:

1. Mass versus populum.
2. Communion in the hand.
3. The Novus Ordo Offertory prayers.
4. Disappearance of Latin in the Ordinary Form.
5. Liturgical services of lector and acolyte by women and ministers in lay clothing.

The Eucharist is the intimacy between Christ and His Bride the Church. How much do we give ourselves to Him vs. how much do we focus on ourselves instead?
