Liturgical "Slow Food Movement"

'The Liturgical Slow Food Movement says we should cherish our tradition and savor the details of the banquet. It’s an invitation to take seriously what our fast food culture would tell us to forget or dismiss—even down to the materials of the “tableware,” how they’re washed, who “does the dishes.” It challenges us to spend a bit more time with prayers that might not, at first, roll naturally off the tongue. And it suggests that perhaps all those little ceremonies sometimes omitted for efficiency’s sake—washing the hands, pouring the wine and water into the chalice—add up to something beautiful and are worth an extra minute or two each day.'

Thank you, young Jesuits. O;)
