Gets quite up my nose. When I was in my teen years my family went to a parish that removed kneelers and the Tabanacal. My parents, were, how shall I politely phrase this, very much annoyed. They fought tooth and nail, but we had a former protestant turned Catholic Priest who still had trace elements of Protestant litergy and social thinking engrained in him. Frankly, I hated the building, it was cold, uninviting and looked like a public meeting hall then an actual Catholic Church. The stations of the Cross were piddly and it had one of those more "happy" crucifixes, with the risen Christ. Nothing wrong with it, but it looked kinda... well... hippish.
I had been to a few Parishes around the place, and generally they were the same sort of thing. As a passive agressive protest I just kneel on the floor. I was most upset when I finally went into the Church I had been baptised in. The place had been a victim of arson years before, and I hadn't been in the new one. When I went in, well, it was purposefully built so you could NOT kneel, it was just physically impossible, even on the floor. You couldn't even find the space in the isle to do it, or at the back. It was actually a tight squeeze to sit, esp. if you had long legs. It was horrid!!
Anyway, the Diocese I'm in now, a lot of reverence, it has restored my faith in Catholic practice in NZL. There are a few minor things that are creeping in from up North, but they're being fought by the majority of people. We lost our Catherdral in the quake, so I'm hoping if they don't fix it back up to its former glory, that we don't get some hideous pseudo-protestant type structure. Granted, the priests I"ve spoken to were seeking vision and ideas from European Churches that are hundreds of years old.
I hope the Diocese I'm in currently doesn't succumb to such wishy washy practices.
