The Shorter, The Better

Australian blogger David Schütz reports on a moment of MR3 pragmatism:

I attended mass in a parish outside my diocese this past weekend, the first weekend of the introduction of people’s parts of the new liturgy. Here is how the priest introduced the Creed: “We won’t be using the Nicene Creed anymore, we’ll use the Apostles Creed. The other one is too long, too long. We will use the shorter one.” Mmmm.


I hope all those pragmatic clergy enjoyed this past weekend. Including the psalm (which was an except from a canticle and not a psalm) we had fifteen-and-a-half Bible verses in the Liturgy of the Word.
