 I think inculturation is the biggest Trojan horse for the reformed Mass and in fact, is a cause for the reform of the reform. Yet, that term is deemed heterodox by those who think the reformed Mass can not be reformed. Such nonsense.

But what kind of spirituality is this by adding it to the Mass? It's really entertainment for the audience, no? 

I'd be asking, what does it mean and what does it have to do with the Mass? Even the reformed Mass which you can do this, but God forbid you add ancient order Latin Mass elements to it. Such hypocrisy, but rigidity is what prevents this nonsense from happening and God forbid that anyone is rigid, a true mortal sin. This is from the Diocese of San Bernadino:

Of course, this is the problem and it must be banned as too rigid and out of place!

This OF "Mass" looks like a Pagan ritual of some kind. Pathetic

That looks so Pentecostal.

Will the authentic Catholic Church please stand up??

Let the Roman Rite be the Roman Rite . . .

If the NO is to be the "unique expression" of the Roman Rite, then let it exhibit the historic Roman cultural characteristics that are proper to it (as does the ancient historical Roman Rite).

Yes, indeed, the places where the EF may be suppressed or new ones no longer allowed, those parishes should re-enchant the OF Mass and celebrate it as you would an EF Mass but following the rubrics and General Instruction of the Roman Missal and what custom does allow.

Ad orientem is possible. Chanting the Propers in Latin as it would be in the EF Mass can be done. At least in the OF you could do a primarily Latin Mass for all the fixed parts and the changing parts chanted in the vernacular. The Roman Canon could be the exclusive canon if one so desired.

Can you have double genuflections at the consecrations? Can you kiss the altar each time you turn to face the congregation? Can you genuflect after the Per Ipsum and Great Amen?

I'll leave it to others to decide the licitity of these, but when I was in the seminary, there were priests who refused genuflections, others perfectly capable of a good genuflection choosing to bow and one who would not genuflect until after the Great Amen.
