AN ANTICIPATION OF REFORMS TO COME DURING THE YEAR OF FAITH AND THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE OPENING OF VATICAN II?

The USCCB's Catholic News Service produced this video. In fact over the last several months several videos sympathetic to Latin and the EF Mass have been produced. This is curious to say the least and would lead some who think they are clairvoyant, but maybe not, to think that the USCCB is preparing the Church for some interesting changes to come in the Liturgy. I'm not saying, but just saying.

I see no point whatsoever in a sung Mass in having the sung Ordinary in the vernacular. Does anyone seriously think that people don't know what the Latin words of the Gloria, Credo, Sanctus and Agnus Dei actually mean?

Yes John Nolan, I do not understand that either. I have a long-held opinion that the Ordinary parts of the Mass, as well as the Canon, should always be in Latin. I see some valid arguments for vernacular readings, propers and proper prayers, but it is really quite odd to me that the Ordinary parts and the Canon are allowed in the vernacular.

And either the CNS has a traddie sympathizer infiltrating their traditionally liberal ranks, or they have really done a total about face.
