Here is Cardinal Burke’s strong defense of the pre-Vatican II Mass, with assurance that he doesn’t reject the reformed rite.
I think liturgical scholars will have a heyday with this.
That he confuses the synagogue and the temple at the outset, in his advocacy of reinstating the Prayers at the Foot of the Altar, is no doubt a slip of the tongue that can happen to anyone, but it raises the larger theological question of how the Church’s worship relates to the temple. His defense of the old “offertory prayers” is even more problematic. Does he know why they were, as he puts it, “very much stripped down and actually changed in character”?? He also likes the “strong sense of our sinfulness” in the unreformed rite. But maybe only bigtime sinners like me really need that any more?? And of course – this keeps being restated – the reforms after Vatican II didn’t follow what the fathers of Vatican II really intended.
Have at it. Enjoy the Frenchy organ music.
