As I prayerfully watched the magnificent Pontifical EF Mass from the Basilica Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC with Archbishop Samples as celebrant, I thought to myself, this is Catholicism, that is a bishop, this is the way we were.
The only people that complained against the Mass in this or even simpler forms were Protestants prior to the Protestantization of the Church and liturgy after Vatican II.
Today, those Catholics who have only experienced the Ordinary Form of the Mass with all of the banal embellisments that priests add to it or corrupt is are the ones who are the most vociferous detractors of the EF form of the Mass--not Protestants, but protestantized Roman Catholics--they don't get it! They think as Protestants do.
There is a symbolic meaning in all of the "kingdom" visuals of the EF Mass.
How can the EF Mass influence the Ordinary Form and recover for it the reverence, solemnity and respect for the Sacred that the EF far better engenders than the manner in which the Ordinary Form is celebrated today?
Let me bang my drum once again!
1. Chant the Propers in a Gregorian form, Latin or English, simple or complex
2. Latin for all the fixed parts of the Mass--the option of the vernacular for the changing parts
3. The low voice Canon, even if using a modern concoction of the Canon.
3. Ad orientem at least for the Liturgy of the Eucharist--although it is only for a Pontifical Mass, the use of the "throne" or "presidential chair" after the PATFOTA as was done with Archbishop Samples, but also for a lowly priest-celebrant
4. The addition of the Prayers at the Foot of the Altar as the Introit is chanted
5. Kneeling for Holy Communion with intinction as an option for the Precious Blood given to the laity--this could be extended to EF Mass too.
