not allowed, you should dress respectfully for Mass
the talking to ones neighbor while attending Mass?
Not good either
the prayer for peace at the end of the Mass?
What prayer is that? At the end of Mass at my parish we have the traditional blessing.
the communion served by lay people?
This is only supposed to be allowable if there is no other way to serve all communicants in a timely fashion
the elimination of the communion rail?
This was a silly change, made by people who felt that there should be no seperation from where the priests are to where the people are. Its just bad theology.
the altar turned toward the people?
In new Churches VII called for the alter to be moved away from the wall, and seperate it from the tabernacle so that the alter could be censed all the way around, and to draw Roman Style Altars into closer sembalence to Eastern Alters, and to older alters. Basically to take the idea of the altar at St. Peters and apply it univerally, but because in that Bassilica the Celebrant faces east (as per tradition) which is towards the people in St. Peters, a bunch of priests thought they should copy that, and it just caught on.
Bassically VII did not perscribe any of the atrocities you see, they are fruits of the “Spirit of Vatican II” but if anything it is a Counter Spirit.
These and many other questions have I and no real substantial answers.
Can anyone answer these questions?
Thank you and God Bless you
