All this despite the fact that Archbishop Annibale Bugnini’s “euchological pluralism and rubrical flexibility” (his prodigality with forms of prayer and his leniency with liturgical rules), advocated over a supposedly rigid “fixism,” displaced the traditional collects from the Mass, promoted a radically simplified ceremonial that tires the eye and deadens the imagination, and introduced a three-year lectionary that contains too much spread out over too long a period to shape a pious memory effectively.
I am tired of hearing how wonderful the three year/two year cycle is when people defend the Novus Ordo. If you like the Novus Ordo better than the Traditional Mass, then fine. But I have never understood the position that more Scripture readings at Mass is better. Folks in the pews know less than they ever did, despite it being handed to them in greater spoonfulls.
