Sorry to say that I find the EWTN programming to be very uninteresting with repeated daily masses from the same church, the same rosaries, endless Mother Angelica re-runs, conversations between priests, etc. Other than the World Over I rarely watch it. It would be nice if they had up to date documentaries and services from the various European cathedrals including the Eastern churches on Sundays and holidays. Would it have been so wrong if they had televised Christmas or Easter Liturgies from Eastern Europe? Even Orthodox? The masses, rosaries, benedictions, etc may be fine for shut ins but not over and over.
Let's be reasonable, here. EWTN is an American cable network conceived by a Franciscan nun from Ohio whose primary target audiences are older American Roman Catholics and Southern Evangelicals. I don't think the network exactly fails in its objectives, therefore, by neglecting Eastern European liturgical events.
Those Masses and Benediction services you see are the conventual public worship services held at the two monasteries, and they are
basically broadcast for shut ins. They aren't shows put on for the benefit of liturgists. It's too bad they aren't allowed to broadcast the daily morning Mass from the Shrine in Hanceville instead of the daily Mass from the EWTN chapel. The diocese, however, doesn't permit the Shrine's Mass to be broadcast (nonsensically) because the priests celebrate the Mass facing the reredos rather than facing the people.
I've been to the Shrine in Hanceville and the daily Mass there is really beautiful. Plenty of smells and bells and ceremonial precision without any of the pomposity of, say, High Anglicanism or the hyper-clericalist atmosphere of Roman Catholic Tridentinism. The solemnity of the liturgy is inviting rather than exclusive, in other words (much like the Byzantine liturgy, really, in that respect). Unusually, there is a very dramatic prostration by several of the inferior ministers at the beginning of the Institutional Narrative.
At any rate, I too would like to see more about the Eastern Churches on EWTN, but in order for that to happen, viewers have to appeal to them. Not kvetch at them. Appeal to them.
