Real quick post – altar girls and EF Mass June 6, 2011

Posted by Tantumblogo in Basics, Dallas Diocese, episcopate, General Catholic, Latin Mass, North Deanery, scandals.

If altar girls cannot be used in the ‘extraordinary’ form of the Mass (TLM), how can they be used for the Ordinary Form (Novus Ordo)?  The Pope has said these two forms of the Mass represent ‘the same Mass.’  Then how can widely different criteria apply?

BTW, am I the only one to feel that well trained and reverent altar boys can make a material difference in the reverent feel of the celebration of Mass?  I’ve seen a huge variety, from ill trained and lackadaisical to almost military in their precision, and it can make a huge difference, to me. 

The cassock also helps!

Girls cannot be priests and should not be at the altar. When girls are at the altar competing with the boys, the boys back off.
I believe that when we remove girls from the altar, we will have more priests in the future.
I say this as a mom of many girls…
it’s not about being prejudice, but about knowing the Truth.

I agree. The last thing most boys want to do during the pre-teen/early teen years is anything that has been invaded by girls. None of the girls in our family felt deprived growing up that only the boys served. I wish they would return to boy only servers.
