Nonetheless, he still has the same overall conclusion:
Spiritually, if I'm to really "connect" at Mass, I need a good priest to help me. And by good I mean, first and foremost, that they should look pleased to be there and pleased that we're there. Often they speak of great "joy" while looking as bored as swimming pool attendants.
Secondly, with the liturgy - essentially the same script which they do day in, day out - the best of them find a way of making it sound fresh. As the inestimable Father Paul Addison of Our Lady of Delours in Kersal put it to me: "The clue's in the word; communion is all about communicating." And the same is obviously true of the sermon.
That still seems to me to be a very modern perspective; post-Novus Ordo. Of course, preachers were either good, bad or indifferent prior to then, but that was (and remains) a small part of what the Mass has to offer. The character of the celebrant, in the Old Rite, is (and rightly, I think) almost invisible, imperceptible. We look through him, to Christ. In the New, particularly when celebrated facing the people, that is so much harder ('They should look pleased to be there and pleased that we're there'). Thus the celebrant is so much more likely to think it is all down to him, which makes him work at it (or not) and the congregation is also likely to have that expectation - and the net result is that he does become the focus of attention.
And I cannot imagine (except in extremis) any priest celebrating the Traditional Mass in trainers...
