"Michael Voris has another indirect, deeply nuanced reflection, this time touching on issues such as the placement of the tabernacle in churches," says Fr. Z in his post yesterday, "Michael Voris about tabernacles and, gasp, liberals!" (WDTPRS, January 12, 2011).
Voris is dead-on-target as to the heart the crisis in the Church today, whether we're talking about catechesis, or morals, or liturgy, or, yes, the placement of the Tabernacle in church: the problem of disbelief in Christ as the incarnation of the Living God and in His Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament.
Voris may not always get his facts right when talking about Protestants. Martin Luther, whom he references here, did in fact believe in the Real Presence. That was the sticking point in his debate with Ulrich Zwingli; but Voris is right about the effects of the Pandora's Box that Luther opened. The vast majority of Protestants today disbelieve in anything like the Real Presence, and the majority of "sacramentalized pagans" that populate many liberal (AmChurch) Catholic parishes are not far behind them.
