"The Five Wounds of the Liturgical Mystical Body of Christ"

"The Five Wounds of the Liturgical Mystical Body of Christ"
"The Five Wounds of the Liturgical Mystical Body of Christ" according to Bishop Athanasius Schneider: 1. Mass versus populum. 2. Communion in the hand. 3. The Novus Ordo Offertory prayers. 4. Disappearance of Latin in the Ordinary Form. 5. Liturgical services of lector and acolyte by women and ministers in lay clothing.

Wounded in the house of them that loved Me - Vultus Christi





"The Erosion of Faith Several years ago, in the context of a course I was teaching, I suggested that the erosion of faith in the Most Holy Eucharist was, in fact, fostered by a number of liturgical and disciplinary changes: -- Minimalistic approach to the fast before Holy Communion. -- The offering of the Holy Sacrifice by the priest facing the congregation. -- The removal of the communion rail and obfuscation of the sanctuary as "the holy place." -- The relegation of the tabernacle to the side of the sanctuary. -- The reception of Holy Communion standing, and in the hand. -- The introduction of Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. Taken together, these changes sent a chilling message to the Catholic faithful (and even to confused clergy): "Folks, the Blessed Sacrament just isn't all that we thought it was."

The title alone of this post is gripping. Is the image an antique holy card? Do you know anything about it? A picture is worth 1000 words. I couldn't think of a better illustration...

I think the image is indeed from an old holy card or perhaps a print.
