WHAT ABOUT AN ORDINARY FORM ORDER AND RUBRICS OF THE 1962 LATIN MISSAL??????????
As you know, I've often touted that our current 2012 English Roman Missal have an Extraordinary Form Order for it, which would be using all the prayers, (except only the Roman Canon) and having the Prayers at the Foot of the altar recovered, and the entire order of the 1962 Missal, along with its offertory prayers. All the rubrics too, but still use the translated English Prayers, calendar, and additional Masses and prefaces of the 2012 English Roman Missal. I would recommend also maintaining the revised OF lectionary, but add the option of a gradual and/or tract in place of the Responsorial Psalm and to celebrate the Liturgy of the Word as in the OF, not the EF order.
But what about this, boys and girls?
What if we had an Ordinary Form of the 1962 missal and maintained everything in Latin from the 1962 missal's prayers, but in the Ordinary Form's order and rubrics including its lectionary and style of celebrating the Mass of Catechumens? Of course that means for the chanted Mass that only the 1962 Latin Introit would be chanted as the processional, with the Sign of the Cross, greeting, Penitential Act (only using the Confiteor of the 1962 Missal) absolution, Kyrie, Gloria and Collect (from the chair).
The offertory procession, with the OF offertory in Latin, but the EF's Offertory Antiphon.
The 1962 Latin Secret
Only the Latin prefaces in the 1962 missal and the Roman Canon but with OF rubrics.
Communion Antiphon as priest receives Holy Communion and the OF Communion practices for the laity.
Prayer after Holy communion from the 1962 Missal and the OF's Latin blessing and dismissal.
