I hate to state the obvious to Rorate Caeli and other neo-trads, but the laity are not the hierarchy and priests are not bishops and bishops are not the pope. Pope Francis has shown His Holiness’ hand in terms of his desire to promote the spirit of Vatican II in which the Traditional Latin Mass embodied in the 1962 Roman Missal of the Latin Rite stands in the way. But His Holiness is the pope, the Supreme Pontiff and the Universal Pastor and synodality not withstanding, His Holiness can be a religious “dictator” as that is what Supreme Pontiff implies. He’s got the unbridled authority.
In the article I post below, there is sour grapes expressed by Rorate Caeli and the author of the article that some bishops, to include the pope, do not want a reform of the reform or to allow some EF sensibilities brought to the OF Mass as they were once called recently.
Thus, I would recommend to all priests who have been celebrating the EF Mass in their parishes to make that Mass time slot in the OF as EF as possible where allowable by their bishop. That means that the new Missal is celebrated in Latin with EF sensibilities but without forgoing the rubrics and General Instruction of the Roman Missal of 2011.
Where bishops will not allow an all Latin OF Mass, ad orientem, then have the Benedictine altar arrangement as seen at papal Masses to this day, chant the propers in Latin even if everything else is in the vernacular and make sure there is good choreography of all the liturgical participants and exquisite vestments. It’s not too hard to do this even if the bishop denies other aspects of EF syncretism.
BUT, AND THIS. IS THE MOST IMPORTANT BUT, IN BOTH EF AND OF MASSES THE ONE SACRIFICE OF CHRIST IS BROUGHT FORWARD IN AN ETERNAL AND GLORIOUSLY RISEN WAY, AN UNBLOODY WAY, AND THE GLORIOUS, RISEN AND SACRAMENTAL REAL PRESENCE OF THE BODY, BLOOD, SOUL AND DIVINITY OF THE RISEN CHRIST IS MADE PRESENT.
Don’t forget that!
