The Holy Father allows the EF to be said in Masses without the people to be said with the exception of the Easter Triduum. Does this mean the EF is not to be said during this time at all?
Is the rubrics for Confession different in the Missal of 1962? Is there anything I should know?
Does the allowance of readings in the vernacular cause great controversy?
Thanks in advance.
As far as Confession goes, here's a link to the ritual.
A few notes:
The ritual itself does not provide "rubrics" for the penitent, but these are in the "General Rules" on the previous page:
The penitent can begin by saying the Confiteor, or with something like "I confess to Almighty God, and to you, Father..." or any of the other typical formulas that we are used to hearing from the Ordinary Form, such as "Bless me, Father for I have sinned..."
So, in short, the ritual itself can be identical to the OF, from the penitent's point-of-view. The only difference would be the actual form of absolution.
Also, the priest is only required to say the actual "Form for Absolution" which begins "May our Lord Jesus Christ..." so a penitent might or might not hear the prayers before that.
