FYI - Jerusalem and the Middle East are one of the few places in the world where the drastic lack of vocations has not affected the church. Their vocations there continue to flourish unabated by the drastic affects Vatican II had on the rest of the world.

Interesting. Do Eastern Catholics suffer from lack of vocations as well?

What IS IT with priests, even the highest prelates, NOT SINGING THE MASS?! The celebration is just so tacky otherwise! Beautiful hymns, a beautiful church, incense, vestments, and then . . . interrupted by a bunch of spoken prayers?! That's not how Christians worship: we chant, at least at solemn celebrations, which a beatification certainly is, no?
