Simple, straightforward words. Everyone knew what they meant. We didn’t talk about rubrics, and most laypeople didn’t know about ambos and aspersoria and thuribles.

True, but let's not knock on the word "reconciliation". That's how the sacrament is referred to in the New Testament. (2 Corinthians 5:18, "But all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Christ; and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation.") It's a legit word to use.
