The procedure was generally condemned by American geneticists and physicians, who predicted all kinds of abuses and unforeseen outcomes.
Will this procedure become legal in the U.S? Of course, it will!
More Liturgical Shenanigans!
The Internet, as we all know, has allowed the broadcast of all kinds of things worldwide, including liturgical abuses. This has only upped the "liturgy wars" and created greater polarization between "conservatives" and "liberals."
For the entire world to see, the internet recently showed the Archbishop of Palermo, Italy, cycling around inside his cathedral in full vestments, including miter. The event was done to celebrate some sort of sporting event.
This kind of thing is bad enough, but it eventually gets to Rome and causes the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments to become alarmed and to assume a more anxious and negative attitude toward liturgy around the world.
Middle-age Folk Masses
After Vatican II, folk Masses became all the rage. They were usually led by young guitar-playing musicians in their 20s.
Now in the new millennium, folk Masses are led by people in their 50s and 60s-still playing guitars and using the same menus of hymns from past decades. In my opinion, the folk Mass phenomenon needs to fade out or be progressively complemented by the more "traditional" offering of choir/(cantor) and organ and "traditional" Masses settings and hymns.
The intended appeal of folk Masses to the young does not seem to have worked, since the young are scarcely to be found in Church these days.
