Im speaking of the Tridentine Mass, not the Novus Ordo. Explain in a reply. Smile
i'm coming from an eastern perspective, but the only reason you have latin in the mass at all is because you dropped greek for the vernacular  Wink

fair enough
It should all be in the vernacular, if Latin is the vernacular.

Why exclusively Latin?

Why exclusively Latin?

Aside from the brief Greek bits, because that is how it is written. It doesn't exist in other languages. It would be like asking should the original works of Shakespeare be read in English or Italian.

I would concede that the Mass of the Catechumens be said in the vernacular for missionary work only, but personally I think we should keep the Latin.  Latin is the language of the Church, and it is unifies us.

LOL
The OT and Gospel readings should be in the vernacular the rest in Latin.

I go along with this.
