Repost: Is Organic Liturgical Growth Still Possible?

It's worth considering that organic growth might no longer be possible in an age of mass media, instant communication, and bureaucratic centralization. As far as I can tell, neither conservatives nor liberals are all that interested in returning to organic growth or to liturgy as a mystery. Both sides accept bureaucratic control and a technological view of liturgy; the argument is just about which side will be in control.
