WHY IN THE NAME OF GOD AND ALL THAT IS HOLY DOES THE ORDINARIATE'S DIVINE WORSHIP, THE MISSAL HAVE A SUPERIOR ORDER OF MASS AND TRADITIONAL TRANSLATION OF THE CONFITEOR AND WE REGULAR ORDINARY FORMERS DON'T? IT JUST DOESN'T SEEM FAIR TO ME!
The Ordinariate's Divine Worship, the Missal has the more traditional Confiteor for their splendid OF Mass (which has the option of the PATFOTA):
I confess to Almighty God,to Blessed Mary ever-Virgin, to Blessed Michael the Archangel, to Blessed John the Baptist, to the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Brethren, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word and deed; (they strike their breast thrice) by my fault, by my own fault, by my own most grievous fault. Wherefore I beg Blessed Mary ever-Virgin, Blessed Michael the Archangel, Blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the angels and Saints and you my brethren to pray for me to the Lord our God.
Why O why do the step children get the good stuff and we who were always faithful get the scraps?
