This is just a simple request for historical information.
I thought that in the Mass before the liturgical reform of VII the readings and gospel were in Latin, with the homily being the only part of the Mass in the vernacular.
I was speaking to someone who grew up in the Church before VII, and he remembers the Bible readings being in the vernacular. However, it would be a long, long time ago in his memory, and he would have seen quite a few changes over the years, so perhaps he has become confused about what changed, when.
Information, please, just for my benefit.
