"Catholic journalist Raymond Arroyo, who wrote a popular biography of Mother Angelica, reports that she thought that “Latin was the perfect language for the Mass.” She explained: “It was almost mystical. It gave you an awareness of heaven, of the awesome humility of God who manifests Himself in the guise of bread and wine. The love that He had for us, His desire to remain with us is simply awesome. You could concentrate on that love, because you weren’t distracted by your own language.”
"She also didn’t like how the priest faces the people, rather than the altar. She said this turned the Mass into “something between the people and the priest.” “Too often,” she continued, “it’s just some kind of get-together and Jesus is all but forgotten.” READ MORE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: God bless Mother Angelica. I fear we shall not again see mainstream Catholic television activists (who are actually Catholic) such as Mother Angelica for a long, long time. Here was a woman who wasn't afraid to speak the truth, no matter the costs. I'll never forget back on May 16, 2001, for example, hearing these words live from Mother Angelica when she was asked if she believes we were given the entire Third Secret of Fatima:
As for the Secret, well I happen to be one of those individuals who thinks we didn’t get the whole thing. I told ya! I mean, you have the right to your own opinion, don’t you, Father? There, you know, that’s my opinion. Because I think it’s scary. And I don’t think the Holy See is going to say something that does not happen, that might happen. And then what does it do if it doesn’t happen? I mean the Holy See cannot afford to make prophecies, because. I know, — I don’t know — my funeral . . . It’s not me, so don’t look at me . . . Something’s gonna happen soon. It could be twenty years before it happens. So to God “soon” could be a thousand years. We don’t know that.Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace.
