Ripples or Rock?

If the Mass is what we say it is, the wedding feast of heaven and Earth, the moment where God humbles himself into the physical, the veil is torn, we are consumed by and consume the Creator Himself, then the question should be, “How do we get The Liturgy into our art? How do we get The Holy Mass into our music? How do our marriages reflect the wedding feast of heaven and earth? How do our families reflect the family of the Church?” The Mass is the rock, not the ripples spreading out from it. The Mass is the Thing Itself; all else should be reaction to and from it.

Bad Catholic says it well.
