Priest calls translation of "pro multis" to "for many" a "heresy"!

These are the reasons today why you guys make the sign of the cross at the Indulgentiam, absolutionem, et remissionem peccatorum... There are no rubrics for this, for the folks in the pews, but we followed the priest.

Well, if that's how you say it was, then it is. In my experience, a lot of those things go unobserved; not that it really matters, but it helps to follow the gestures.

Quote:And this is not aimed at HK, but this is the organic growth  of the Mass, and it never stands still, nor is it archaeology. I've come to this realization the High Mass is the past and the Missa Cantata or the Recitata or the Dialogata is the way forward. It is the way to re-join all of us.

I don't have anything against organic growth, either. I also think options are warranted in the traditional liturgy. I don't see why high Mass (I assume you mean solemn Mass) should no longer be the ideal, though. The fundamental thing is getting more deacons and subdeacons to assist the priest; so rather than there just being priest and people, there's a hierarchy. Expanding the holy orders should be an organic growth.
