A little question: with all of the emphasis on visibility to ensure greater participation, what is to be said about the blind person? Is he (or she) to be left out, simply because he can’t see what’s going on?
Sangallo, from the limited justification produced in Midleton in support of the proposed re-ordering, one would think that anyone who is blind, or even partially sighted, is completely unable to take ‘active participation’ in the Mass. Taking that idea to its end, it would appear that they are saying that people with sight disability have never actually taken part in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Interestingly, I remember it being said, when I was young, that one heard Mass, and that the priest said Mass.
Taken along with some of the other bizarre statements made by the Applicants during the recent Oral Hearing,one can only come to the conclusion that they no idea of what their own Church says on these matters and have total contempt for the ordinary parishioners, whose instincts are more inline with true Church teaching then they are.
