Whatever happened to embracing the mass as expression of the Spirit... that, after all, is what a chasuble is used for!

Whatever happened to the Mass being about about Christ? I guess being one with Christ in the eucharist shouldn't get in the way of self(ish) expression.

For Pentecost? Good heavens, I hope not.
