Your reply made reflect on another article I had bookmarked:
(Substituting the Creed) ewtn.com/Library/Liturgy/zlitur154.htm
Yet even the article supplied had me asking why is it that when the Credo is recited that the preference often goes to the Apostles Creed rather than the original Nicene Creed?
The Old Creed: newadvent.org/cathen/01629a.htm
The Catechism of the Council of Trent apparently assumes the Apostolic origin of our existing Creed, but such a pronouncement has no dogmatic force and leaves opinion free. Modern apologists, in defending the claim to apostolicity, extend it only to the old Roman form ®, and are somewhat hampered by the objection that if R had been really held to be the inspired utterance of the Apostles, it would not have been modified at pleasure by various local churches (Rufinus, for example, testifies to such expansion in the case of the Church of Aquileia), and in particular would never have been entirely supplanted by T, our existing form. The difference between the two will best be seen by printing them side by side (Creeds R and T):
R-(1) I believe in God the Father Almighty;
T-(1) I believe in God the Father Almighty Creator of Heaven and earth
R-(2) And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; T-(2) And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord;
R-(3) Who was born of (de) the Holy Ghost and of (ex) the Virgin Mary; T-(3) Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary,
R-(4) Crucified under Pontius Pilate and buried; T-(4) Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried;
R-(5) The third day He rose again from the dead,
T-(5) He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead;
R-(6) He ascended into Heaven,
T-(6) He ascended into Heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
R-(7) Sitteth at the right hand of the Father, T-(7) From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
R-(8) Whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. T-(8) I believe in the Holy Ghost,
R-(9) And in the Holy Ghost,
T-(9) The Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints
R-(10) The Holy Church,
T-(10) The forgiveness of sins,
R-(11) The forgiveness of sins;
T-(11) The resurrection of the body, and
R-(12) The resurrection of the body.
T-(12) life everlasting.
