If Benedict plans to do away with the Ordinary Form, why does he call it the *Ordinary Form*? That is the first and last question you need to ask conspiracy mongers on the Left and the delusional Traditionalists on the Right. The Ordinary Form isn’t going anywhere. That’s the simple truth.
I am trying to understand Pope Benedict’s position about the Liturgy of the Church. I know that he cannot contradict Vatican II, but this seems to be behind some peoples’ perception: That Pope Benedict is going to do away with the Novus Ordo Mass in order to restore the Mass in Latin. When I read these things it feels as if they really believe that Vatican II’s changes on the Liturgy represent an infiltration of Satan on the Church, when the only thing that I perceive is the consequences of the misinterpretation of Vatican II. Would you please share with you how do you understand these things? God bless you, bro.
