Mass no longer a sacrifice in Austria?

Reactions 
Images from the Youth Masses promoted by the Cardinal Archbishop of Vienna






God bless our mouths, so that we can find the correct word.
Words fail. What is the woman in red doing lined up with the priests? This is during the closing blessing!!- as it says on the right of the video projection.




Pope Benedict to the Austrian bishops

"Thanks to the presence of the Risen Lord, we can face reality fearlessly and optimistically, yet without losing our capacity to call things by their name, objectively and without seeking to obscure their real nature."

So what is the real nature of the Youth Mass of the Cardinal Archbishop of Vienna? In the West, as Christ is the leaven of the sacrifice, leavened bread should not be used. Using leavened bread does not exclude the intention to offer sacrifice but once leavened bread is used, it leaves open the possibility that the intention is defective.

Taken with the liturgical chaos in the Diocese of Linz, this means that at least two Austrian dioceses are out of control. And has the teaching of Catholic Faith and morals been restored in the Diocese of St Poelten?

The reality which can be seen by all. Unless of course, you're blinkered like these participants in a Viennese youth Mass.
