I know- I know…
But if it is not done carefully and thoughtfully it could be disasterous. Imagine altar girls, lay people distributing holy communion, mass facing the people, lay readers and all other Novus Ordo practices being allowed at the TLM. They must insure that the 1962 liturgical rubrics are adhered to without any modification whatsoever.
I remember a radio program a while ago on Catholic Answers Live that said the Church is well aware of the problems with the New Rite- yet to impose the old rite as should be done is not an easy thing to do and even to allow a “general indult” is not as easy as it seems.
One example is the Liturgical Calendar-
Those of us who attend the TLM regularly will want Corpus Christi to be on the Thursday as it is still celebrated in Rome and also the feast of Christ the King to remain on the original day as it still is in TLM only parishes like mine. There is also the time of Septuagisima that must be followed according to the 1962 Missal as well as veiling statues during Lent… it is MUCH MORE complicated than everyone thinks-
No more wine glasses instead of gold chalices, proper altar linens (according to the 1962 laws and not todays requirements), relics must be in the altar, etc.
I could go on and on…
Lay people must wear cassocks when in the Sanctuary, no flag of the nation or even the papal flag allowed in the Sanctuary.
Just wait for a EDIT “traditionalist” to show up at the TLM at a local parish when things are not properly done and 1962 liturgical law is not adhered to.
