I worked at a Catholic church in San Antonio years ago. Original high altar items and lovely old vestments were piled up in a room off the sacristy, half thrown into closets. The relic-bearing altar stone was kept in a cupboard with rags and bottles of brass polish. How did a centuries old sense of the sacred fall from grace in so short a period of time? After the usual "Hi! How are ya?" morning Mass one day, a visiting priest from Mexico said Mass at a side altar. He did so ad orientem, and -surprisingly to me - used Latin. All was said in a hushed voice and related reverence was palpable. Many people flocked to that side of the church instead of leaving. They were obviously starved for something - a sense of reverence and mystery which, after all, should be hallmarks of what is and always will be, a MYSTERY RELIGION.
