Dear "et clamor meus ad te veniat",

I am a lover of the rich traditions of the Church. A convert from Protestism and now a Catholic it's amazing how the spirit lead me to love treasures like the Tridentine Rite.

I will suggest that instead of sounding so pro-Tridentine why not be a sign to show others that both Novus Ordo and Tridentine are both SAME. In that both rites lead the sould towards GOD.

Just a suggestion.

In Christ, Francis and Clare,

That is so true Kenneth. I have been writing a lot about the Missal of John XXIII a lot because the Motu Proprio has been such hot news. When it all settles down ( and I have about another 3 posts before I exhaust all my material) I can write some more about the Missal of Paul VI and its proper celebration.

As for me I love both Missals equally, when celebrated properly.

It is possible, after many misconceptions regarding the Novus Ordo Mass have been resolved, that a conflation of the two usages will emerge. How long that will take is anyone's guess, mine is ten years. Hopefully, Pope Benedict XVI will be around to guide the progress.

I do not think it will be 10 years, that the two forms of the Roman Rite will merge. I believe that it will be 100s of years if at all. The forms are too distinct and come from completely different cultural millieu.

I think the closest Mass to what the Second Vatican Council wanted was the 1965 missal.
