In this month's episode of Work of Human Hands we review Chapter 10 of Father Anthony Cekada's book: "Adroit Choices, Gigantic Voices." This chapter examines the new Lectionary in depth. We were supposed to get "more Scripture" but the reality is that we not only get a lot less Scripture through strategic editing ("adroit choice"), but we get the notion of "liturgy as classroom" (the "gigantic voice").
Gone is a consistent and thematic group of readings that can be counted on every season of the Liturgical Year, every year without fail. In its place is a set of stripped down readings, which unsurprisingly are missing the "negative theology" that the "reformers" so despise.
If you are attending the Novus Ordo service, this is a great episode to listen to so you can understand yet another way you are being conned.
