Quotation: ‘Among these dark satanic mills
...in my experience the young people of today have a much greater affinity for the complex and intricate post-Tridentine rites and ceremonies than for anything which came out of the disreputable 1970s. It is, I feel, the sense of mystery and awe that these rites and ceremonies impart which makes them so appealing to the wage-slaves and cubicle-dwellers of the 21st century; "noble simplicity" is something which might work in a conference room, but has no resonance in the religious practice of those who already hear similar catchwords bandied about sixty hours a week at work.

- Paul Goings
