A blog on the 1965 Missal. I have somewhat mixed feelings about the 1965, but I find that it is often completely overlooked in the liturgical shuffle. I think that it comes closer to prudently expressing the ideals of Sacrosanctum Concilium--which, when considered in retrospect, require very little in the way of changes to the old Mass to be properly enforced--in the context of the larger tradition. It, rather than the 1970, has a better claim to being the real product of Vatican II. While it did away with some parts of the Mass I'd sooner keep, it was far more organic than the changes of the 1970 Missal, and bears further study in regards to whatever proposed Reform of the Reform may happen.
