Liturgical reformation needs to be “reformed” with a new document, says Archbishop of Moscow

.- Msgr. Tadeusz Kondrusiewicz, Catholic Archbishop of Moscow, says Liturgical reformation needs to be reformed, with a new document in order to correct the many abuses in the celebration of the Eucharist.

Speaking in Italian, the Russian Archbishop noted that the liturgical reform allowed a more conscious, active and fruitful participation of the faithful in the Eucharist.

“Nevertheless, along with the positive aspects, other negatives came along.”

The insufficient discipline and liturgical conscience in the Eucharistic celebration, gives a bad influence, as well as in ecumenical relations,” the Prelate said. Because the violation of liturgical norms obscures the faith and the doctrine of the Church on the Eucharist, it leads to the betrayal of the norm. “Lex orandi-Lex credendi. “ (“ we believe what we pray.”)

The Eucharist, he added, is placed at the heart of the Christian faith, that suffers foremost from the corruption of the Eucharist. Pope Benedict XVI, made a call to eucharistic devotion and the bold and clear affirmation in the real presence of the Lord, mostly it its solemnity.

“A change in the liturgical life requires that we approve  a new doctrinal document that stresses the observance of liturgical norms.” Because “Christ doesn’t have to suffer for the abuse in the eucharistic celebration, that always has to be welcomed and lived as “sacrum,” as a mysterious  renewal of  Christ’s sacrifice.
