Re-Enchanting The Liturgy

Father Kimel at Pontifications has an interesting post regarding the liturgy and the Eucharist. What struck me as interesting is his description of the fear that Catholics are moving towards a more Protestant understanding of the Eucharist as a symbol. At the same time, many of us who have discovered RO are moving towards real presence in our understanding of the Eucharist.

If you have a moment read the post. As I read, I was reminded of an essay written by Catherine Pickstock in The Postmodern God entitled, "Asyndeton: Syntax and Insanity. A Study of the Revision of the Nicene Creed. In this article, she describes how the liturgical "innovations" actually affected Anglican undertanding of God, space, and time. While this essay is not an easy read, her thorough reading of the changes made to the creed clearly delineates the problems with recent "reforms" of the liturgy.
