I don’t think I used the word “akin”. What I said was “closer”.
As the bishops of the world said in Sacrosanctum Concilium: "21. In order that the Christian people may more certainly derive an abundance of graces from the sacred liturgy, holy Mother Church desires to undertake with great care a general restoration of the liturgy itself. "
Restoration - interesting use of the word.
“34. The rites should be distinguished by a noble simplicity; they should be short, clear, and unencumbered by useless repetitions; they should be within the people’s powers of comprehension, and normally should not require much explanation.”
Nobel simplicity now is passed off as “poor… stripped down”
"50. The rite of the Mass is to be revised in such a way that the intrinsic nature and purpose of its several parts, as also the connection between them, may be more clearly manifested, and that devout and active participation by the faithful may be more easily achieved.
For this purpose the rites are to be simplified, due care being taken to preserve their substance; elements which, with the passage of time, came to be duplicated, or were added with but little advantage, are now to be discarded; other elements which have suffered injury through accidents of history are now to be restored to the vigor which they had in the days of the holy Fathers, as may seem useful or necessary."
“are now to be discarded” is not “stripped down”.
Akin was not used in the document either. However, it was clear from the document and the decades of liturgical research that the bishops intended to look to the Mass previous to its formation into what we now know as the the EF.
And the document passed, with most of the bishops of the world present, by 2,147 yes to 4 no.
