Ok...no flaming and bashing please...I ask this question in all seriousness..
 
I was under the impression if something was not stated in the GIRM then it was not allowed during the Mass...
It has been brought to my attention that I am incorrect...
Quote:
Since the bishops have authority over liturgical matters, it is a defiant point to suggest otherwise, particulary from a layperson who does not know the full latitude permitted by the GIRM in liturgy. Bishops do. Are you suggesting that obedience is to be set aside in favor of one's private interpretation? You need to prove that it is NOT permitted, as I asked another poster.

This is a very weak argument to say nothing is permitted unless it is written in the GIRM, albeit with sufficient clarity so that a lay person will not impose his own understanding of it after reading on the internet. This really amazes me that a lay person would put so little trust in the Bishops' knowledge of what is right and wrong. They have issued a solemn concordat stating their approval.

Can someone please direct me to something that states exactly how much latitude is allowed in the GIRM  ...
Thank you!!!!! :)
That is complete nonsense. It was confirmed by the USCCB as the sole use for the Roman Missal. I can't post the text without getting in copyright trouble, but here is the link.
