Is it a good idea to go from this:
"Referring to the change in liturgical climate, I would very earnestly ask you, Fr. McDonald, to pray for my parish and new pastor. We made some headway over the past year with a traditionally-minded younger priest, but he's been transferred elsewhere now, and our new pastor is clearly of the 1970's ilk when it comes to liturgy. We're a cluster of four churches (mine is the oldest and arguably most traditional of the lot), and at mine, they have (or rather, had) the altar servers in cassocks and surplices (rather than albs) and they use bells through the Eucharistic Prayer. Well as soon as the new pastor came in he put a stop to the cassocks and surplices since "they're an older thing and no one really uses them anymore," and since he wants there to be uniformity across the four churches (the other three of which use albs). He also, so I've been informed, may be putting a stop to the bell usage.
Please pray that he can experience a liturgical conversion of the kind you had! I've been praying for a couple years now for my parish to become more traditional, and it seemed for a while like things were headed that direction, and it would be hugely troubling if this new pastor tears everything down. He's not very ceremonial, either, probably because he doesn't see the value in it. So please do add him to your prayers."
My final comment: Please pray for his parish!
