Let Us Pray, and Pray, and Pray

I hope so, we need to pray that this is true, the happy clappers will literally lay a large one, the wailing and gnashing of teeth will be heard, the priestesses will shriek and rend their tie died pretend vestments, tantrums will be heard and toys will be thrown out of prams. Gads, this sound like fun!!!!

The Egyptian

Pope to abolish Novus Ordo; new Missal being planned

According to leaks from sources close to Archbishop Burke, the Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, Pope Benedict XVI is set to abolish the Novus Ordo by introducing a New Missal of Benedict XVI. It is reported that the proceedings are being carred out behind closed doors but some leaks have come through of what it will entail:
  • The Liturgy of the Eucharist will more closely reflect the Mass of the Faithful in the Missal of Pius V.

  • The expanded lectionary will remain intact for the Liturgy of the Word.

  • The "peace" will be moved away from the eucharistic prayers and more toward the beginning of the mass, or just after the creed.

  • Various eucharistic prayers from the Missal of Paul VI (Novus Ordo) will be entirely suppressed. The calendars for both the Novus Ordo and Tridentine will be reconciled

It is also being said that the new 'Benedictine' Missal will contain rubrics for both the Ordinary and Extraordinary Mass, presumably in an attempt to mould the Ordinary Form into the dignified liturgy VaticanII had intended.
