.....Could have been a Traditional Latin Mass!
It was reverent, in Latin, holy and beautifully sung......but it was an Ordinary Form Mass and a concelebrated one at that.
The distinctions between EF and OF were really quite blurred on the surface; I would even go so far as to say that, if my local parish church offered an Ordinary Form Mass in the same manner, I would be there like a greased something or other.
So, is it too much to ask that the Holy Father celebrates Mass in the Extraordinary Form?
Will the Archbishop of Paris really swoon at the prospect?
And all those German and Austrian prelates, will they start smashing up the crockery?
I think that the only person who would really start chewing at the carpet if such a Mass took place would be The Tablet's Rome correspondent.
