=RogerDeCourcy;9361039]I had a revelation last weekend. I realised that if the Novus Ordo mass was abrogated tomorrow all those people who like to personalise the Roman Rite would now be involved with the old mass.
If you’re the kind of trad that winces at Gothic vestments or such your head would explode after a few months of ‘enrichment’ of the old rite by liturgical progressives.
Funny when you think about it.
Are you OLD enough to remember the EXTRODINARY Form of our Liturgy?
If my memory is correct and IMO, we had more parishes, more catholic Schools, More Vocations to the Priesthood; more Informed and fully practicing Roman Catholics, more world wide influence; more growth; more people regurarlly attending the Mass and the Sacrament of Confession [and therefore FAR more likely to get to heaven].
So by friend, what AM I MISSING HERE?
**Am I saying the N.O. is to blame? NO! **
Its MUCH more profoundly complex than any one issue.
God has to be in charge. Amen!
