Liturgy and Ritual

James Hitchcock's Keynote Address at the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars Convention, published in Adoremus
As traditionally understood by Catholics, community was not primarily a human entity but participation in the Communion of Saints, and the loss of that belief means that the inadequacies of particular communities cannot be transcended. As worshippers are urged to turn primarily toward one another, all divisions are magnified, to the point where only homogeneous communities are possible.

For some people, might that be not a bug, but a feature?
