Join in and list the reasons why you believe - or one of your favourite authors believes - the traditional liturgy is appropriate for what the Church and the world need today. If the comments feature doesn't work for you, send me an e-mail and I'll list it for you.
[26 April: Yes, I'm keeping this one up for a while]
1) Its reverent form confronts us with the holiness of God.
2) The implicit hierarchy represents a biblical world view.
3) Its classic formality and beauty beats the weekly attempts at trying to come up with an order of service hands down.
4) It connects us with the universal church across time.
5) The presence of variety in certain elements engages one's interest.
6) The presence of sameness frees one from distractions so that one may focus on the devotional spirit.
See the first chapter in Letters to Malcolm by C. S. Lewis. Lots of good comments there. For example:
[...the traditional liturgy] "works" best - when, through long familiarity, we don't have to think about it.... The perfect church service would be one we were almost unaware of; our attention would have been on God.
Novelty, simply as such, can have only an entertainment value. And they don't go to church to be entertained.... A still worse thing may happen. Novelty may fix our attention not even on the service but on the celebrant.
I can make do with almost any kind of service whatever, if only it will stay put.
