In some ways I am glad I am retired. I don’t have to contend with providing Mass for every major language group in my parishes.
Let me be clear. My formative years as a Catholic took place in a diocesan parish in Augusta that catered to active and retired Army families. We were very diverse because of war brides. We had Italians, the best country, then we had Germans, Filipinos, Puerto Ricans, Panamanians, French, Koreans, Japanese and Vietnamese. When the Mass was the TLM, we all were together. We didn’t go to different language Masses with those who only spoke our language. We were together!
I am not opposed to inculturation. But that should take place in devotions and piety apart from Mass. Every country prior to Vatican II had culturally oriented devotions, either private or public. These were strong and satisfying as most devotions were prayed in the vernacular of the people and with their own pieties and ways of praying
Mexicans, as we know, have a wonderful tradition of private and public devotions, especially surrounding Our Lady of Guadeloupe.
These don’t need to be dragged into the Mass.
And this is really novel for the modern local parish. Let’s have Mass in a dead language, so no living language is given superiority over other languages spoken locally! And even more novel, let that language be Latin, with a small smattering of Greek and ancient Hebrew.
But let private and public devotions, never dragged into the Mass, be inculturated and in the vernacular of those who celebrate it.
