Cathcon on active participation

Church Latin -Times Online:

Anyone who thinks that active participation has been enhanced by the modern Mass should travel across Europe attending Mass. Sit in the front row at each Mass, and at the Sanctus, prior to the Consecration, take a backwards glance at the congregation. Then go to a Latin Mass and do the same.

The Latin Mass is not being forced on anyone and in Brussels where I live, it is a magnet even among those who know no Latin. The mere externals so often found in the modern Mass, modern man and woman see as distractions, ultimately banal.
