Last Saturday I attended the vigil Mass in Singapore and during the Mass I was caught off guard by some minor differences in the Mass that made me realize of much I can go in automatic mode.
For example the use of the Apostles Creed. Looking at the missal in the pews it was obvious that it was the correct Creed to be used as a standard. However, they also had a laminated order of the Mass and in that there was the Nicean Creed in Latin while the rest was in English. I was also surprised by minor changes in the Lord’s prayer.
Given the overall sense of reverence that I observed during the liturgy I do not think at all that those were abuses, but just small differences in the GIRM. Can anyone please give me a link to the GIRM used in Singapore?
BTW It was the Church of St. Joseph with altar rails and lot of statues. I just love the inside, it brought me back in time. Confessions are administered by the local Opus Dei priest.
