AHHH! ORIENTEM AND JUST THIS MORNING BY POPE FRANCIS!
If only every parish in the world could celebrate Mass as Pope Francis did this morning in the Sistine Chapel, what an improvement there would be in the faith and spirituality of Catholics, not to mention, their liturgical identity as Catholics!
But far more importantly, the sign and symbol of liturgical prayer directed to God the Father, through Jesus Christ (as sacramentally represented in the ordained priest) and by the power of the Holy Spirit would be greatly enhanced and made powerfully visible.
In other words, no one, the priest himself or the laity behind him, would think that the prayer of the Liturgy of the Eucharist, especially the words of Consecration, are directed toward them as though the Canon is a re-enactment of the Last Supper, but they will know the Canon as liturgical prayer that simply "remembers" the words of Consecration of the Last Supper, words directed to God the Father, not the congregation!
Folks, as Robert Cardinal Sarah knows, and multitudes of others in the Church, this manner of celebrating the Mass is a no-brainer. No need to call it the "reform of the reform" for this Mass celebrated by Pope Francis is the Mass that the Second Vatican Council's Sacrosanctum Concilium desired.
And there is a great blend of Latin and the vernacular. The parts of the Mass are in Latin while the priestly prayers are in the vernacular, Italian in this case.
