Coming to a Tridentine Parish near you (maybe?)
- Female Altar Servers
- Hand Raising Cantors
- Lay epistle readers
- Haugen/Haas tridentine mass liturgical music.
- Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
- NAB scripture readings
- TLM Liturgical Dance
- Or any of the abuses from the 50s the libs like to tell us so much about.
These things aren't necessarily "abuses" in the Novus Ordo. I don't have any problem with the Novus Ordo when its done well. This past weekend I had to attend an NO parish and they clapped after the homily like there was no tomorrow. It was also the first time I've witnessed anyone holding hands during the Our Father. And during the passing of the peace the woman behind me shook my hand and said "May the peace of Christ be on your heart." or something like that. I attend St. Agnes whenever I'm in West Chester but this was different than any other time I've been there. To boot, the music at Mass was almost all Marty Haugen. (We praise the animals, the trees, the earth, the sky crap...)
So I say bring the indult* with caveats. Take your time, B16, and do it right...we're in no hurry.
