The New Zealand Bishops “no” to liturgical use of Missal Apps for iPad and to the use of other electronic devices in the liturgy makes sense says Dunedin priest Monsignor John Harrison.
The Otago Daily times reports that Monsignor Harrison says he has no problem with a ruling that priests should not use electronic devices when celebrating the Eucharist.
“It is about what is appropriate to use during official worship. Using electronic devices, you could easily confuse the sacred and the secular,” he said last week.
He says the decision “had given priests a bit of a chuckle”. “The guys can see the sense in it.”
