Cardinal Raymond Burke made some outstanding observations about the reform of the reform of the Ordinary Form of the Mass and primarily the recovery of beauty in the Mass and the primacy of Christ as the "Actor" of the Mass.
So a future reform of the reform of the Ordinary Form of the Mass should not look like this:
But the future reform of the reform of the Ordinary Form of the Mass should look like this:
My humble suggestions for the reform of the reform of the Ordinary Form of the Mass in the future:
You can have EF sensibilities without tweaking the OF Mass that much. I don’t agree that it is necessary to have Psalm 42 in the Prayers at the Foot of the Altar, especially since the official Introit is a Psalm and in the EF Psalm 42 is omitted for Requiem Masses and it was eliminated in the 1965 missal and it does tend to extend in a cumbersome way this part of the EF Mass. So my most humble suggestions for a future reform while not tinkering too much with the order of the OF Mass:
Processional Chant consistent with one or more of the themes of the readings
Penitential Act at the Foot of the Altar to include the Sign of the Cross, all kneel, ministers bow for the introduction to the Penitential Act which becomes, “I will go unto the altar of God, with its response, and the exclusive use of the Confiteor and absolution. Afterward all stand and the Official Introit is chanted, the altar is kissed (incense if used) and the priest goes to the chair for the Kyrie, Gloria, then the Greeting and Collect.
Having the Penitential Act at the Foot of the Altar gives it some visual, artistic elements currently totally lacking and situates it as a prelude to the actual Mass, a sort of purification rite prior to approaching the altar of God. In place of this penitential prelude, the Extraordinary Forms Rite of Sprinkling Holy Water could take place and would similarly be a prelude to the Mass and approaching the altar during the chanting of the Introit.
The official Offertory and Communion Antiphons should be made mandatory in the OF GIRM but not to exclude additional motets or anthems at that time to cover the action of the offertory and the Communion procession.
It wouldn’t be that dramatic to return to the former offertory prayers, but I wouldn’t see this as absolutely necessary.
The Last Gospel was eliminated in the 1965 missal. I don’t advocate its return to the OF Mass, but if it were to be returned it should be after the Prayer after Communion and prior to the blessing and dismissal.
Of course another solution is to leave the OF alone but offer an EF order of the 2012 missal but leaving in tact the OF Liturgy of the Word and calendar. That would be simple and it could be the EF order in the vernacular or Latin.
A slight revision to the OF calendar should occur too and use the Anglican Ordinariate’s well-done version of it which you can find by pressing HERE.
Then the 1962 missal would be only for those communities that want it and under the SSPX Ordinariate if that comes about or the FSSP under the local bishop.
