Unfortunately, love today and truth have become “jokes”. If we do not pursue the truth, we are lost. Consider the sheer intellectual force of our saintly Pope Benedict XVI’s address at Regensberg, Germany where he stated that any religion that does not express total truth or rationality with love is not representative of God, the ‘Logos,’ but is a contradiction. Or as St.John the Evangelist said so succinctly: “He who claims to love God but hates his neighbor is a liar.” Where do we see God’s most vivid expression of the “Logos” in this world but in the most holy sacrifice of the Mass, especially the traditional mass of the ages, the Tridentine Latin Mass. No prayer more astutely expresses the sacrificial nature of love than the ritual of the Tridentine Latin Mass. How much we try to disconnect love from sacrifice today and what is left, but all the perversions of love with which we coexist these days. And this is no joke!!! Check out the Tridentine Mass…. http://www.theorthodoxromancatholic.com jhughesdunphy Reply rcesq January 29, 2007 - 5:07 am Groan. What a pun. (But shouldn’t it be “here are some Summa Wrestlers?”) 😉 Reply TSO January 29, 2007 - 10:04 am I wish I were half as holy as the Angelic Doctor!
