Fr Kramer (i videoen) sier bl.a.:

… A large segment of Father Kramer’s flock is people born decades after the Tridentine Mass ceased to be the norm. He says they are frequently drawn by the older liturgy’s emphasis on the sacrificial dimension, which makes it «more obvious that Christ is pouring out his blood for the forgiveness of sins.»

The 59-year old priest says that Catholic clergy of his generation, reacting to the severe moralizing that prevailed before Vatican II, were «very reluctant to talk about the punishments for sin.» But the «new generation,» recoiling from the more libertine mores with which it grew up, «needs to talk about sin and how the problem of sin is resolved,» he said.

Younger people also are «more sophisticated than they used to be, and they’re looking for something at a higher level,» Father Kramer says. «And I think that is connected with finding the great tradition and richness of the last 2,000 years.» …

Jeg fant innlegget på Rorate cæli (mange kommentarer også der) og teksten på CNS.

    og jeg kom til å tenke på artikkelen til fr. Arnfinn Haram, som du omtalte 21. april, den om en forenklet og banal kristendomsforståelse, den lettvint sentimentale gladkristendommen.

    I artikkelen til John Allen, omtalt i dag (30. april), betegner han pave Benedikt slik:
    «In general, Benedict XVI is a teaching, rather than a governing, pope.»

    Kanskje kan vi nå håpe på en internasjonal trend bort fra det banale og overfladiske,
    mot innsikt og forståelse?
