NO NEED TO CLERICALISE THE LAYFOLK

THIS IS " FULL AND ACTIVE PARTICIPATION"

POPE SAINT PIUS X
"The Holy Mass is a prayer itself, even the highest prayer that exists. It is the sacrifice, dedicated by our Redeemer at the Cross, and repeated every day on the altar. If you wish to hear Mass as it should be heard, you must follow with eye , heart and mouth, all that happens at the altar. Further, you must pray with the Priest the holy words said by him in the Name of Christ and which Christ says by him. You have to associate your heart with the holy feelings which are contained in these words and in this manner you ought to follow all that happens at the altar. When acting in this way you have prayed Holy Mass." 

Pope Saint Pius X 

It was Pope Saint Pius X who first introduced the concept of full and active participation. Here we see his intention, so clearly consistent with Catholic belief. But, in the wake of the Second Vatican Council, the phrase - in Latin "participatio actuosa"( that is in spirit,heart and mind) was perverted by the false "spirit of the Council "folk and used as if it had been "participatio activa"( that is of the body) so now we have all manner of layfolk rushing around the Sanctuary in all manner of "ministries". It will take some time to get them back where they belong -  on their knees.
