Dialogue Mass: What's the point?
#44
Personally, I prefer the servers making the responses. 

That being said, the Mass has and always has had a dialogue format.  Before the servers took over for the congregation in the West, for many centuries in the Latin rite and for all time in the others, the dialogue was between the priest and congregation.  It seems to have an Apostolic origin so there must have been a good reason for it.  I think the idea is that since the liturgy is the "work of the Church," the whole Church is included in praying it publically.
