“In fact not a few of those would really like to retreat to even earlier editions of the Tridentine missal”

I plead guilty. I am one of those dangerous anti-Catholic Protestant radtrad madtrad Lefebvrist radicals who would rather attend a liturgy not touched by Arbp. Bugnini, even in the slightest. Give me the 40s at least.

This book sounds like a perfect fit for Catholic Answers or the Ignatius Press.

nobody: Some of us would like to return to the older liturgy based on its merits (the kalendar, the commemoration system, the Holy Week/Pentecost Vigil, the ancient psalter) and not because Msgr Bugnini was the Boogie Man. Remember that all he did had the full approbation of Pius XII and Paul VI.

Interesting how Geiger triangulates the language of Benedict XVI’s “reform of the reform” program with his own position in order to promote essentially the existing new rite with no improvements to it. It never ceases to amaze me that so much time and money is spent by people within the Church justifying its own radical changes rather than in converting people by the most effective means possible.
