"Call to Action" front conference a bust

That would be the Northern California Lay Convcation, held at USF (where else?) on September 6. Why do we say it's a "Call to Action" front? Go here.

Anyway, we're glad to report the convocation was a bust. From this week's "Catholic San Francisco" (PDF 3.6MB):

"After a promising first year when more than 300 people gathered at St. Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco, organizers for the second Northern California Lay Convocation were noticeably disappointed Sept. 6 when only around 100 people took part."

"Laura Bertone, a liturgy expert, who urged attendants to make suggestions to pastors and liturgy planners 'to enhance the liturgy' by encouraging a variety of voices and contributors." To enhance the liturgy? A variety of voices? What do they think the liturgy is that it needs enhancement, or a diversity of "contributors"? It's not some vehicle for left-wing experimentation, nor a platform for self-expression. It is a re-presentation of the sacrifice of the cross, and is apostolic. On the anniversary of Summorum Pontificum, we should all say a prayer of thanksgiving to the Holy Father for restoring the liturgy, both old and new.
