I want to talk to my brothers and sisters who grew up with the Latin Mass. I want to talk about what you remember from 1965 through 1970. The transistional years. And from my point of view, those are only canonical dates. The transition was far quicker. I have a St. Joseph’s Missal dated January of 1966 in front of me.
Introibo - could be in Latin or English. Followed by the Confiteor in either Latin or English. Prayers, followed by Kyrie followed by Gloria.
We did most of it in Latin until 1967. So much for the gradual transition. And we knelt for Communion well into the 70s. My sister was married in 76 and the communion rails are there in her photos.
C’mon all you old fogeys. Let’s see if we can try and make sense of our collective experience.
