IF BY CHILDREN'S LITURGY, WE MEAN THIS, WELL THEN, PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS COME!
This children's liturgy is from the Ordinariate's Roman Missal, approved by the way, by Pope Francis and celebrated at Our Lady of the Atonement Catholic Church in San Antonio, Texas on March 22, just two days ago.
While this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass includes elements of the Anglican liturgical patrimony, which I find wordy, it is nonetheless a liturgy that Sacrosanctum Concilium envisioned which was disordered by those who fabricated the new Order of the Mass. This is sad indeed, but steps like the Ordinariate's Missal are rectifying a sad situation.
Please listen to the chanting of the Propers in English. Magnificent. How many lay Catholics even know that the Introit, Offertory and Communion Propers even exist if they never hear it since these are not required to be chanted but substitutes can be made, like "Be Not Afraid" and "Here I am Lord" and "Leaping the Mountains" not to mention "How Great Thou Art", "Amazing Grace" and "The Old Rugged Cross."
Thanks to Knoxville Henry for leading me to this video:
