WHO do you blame more for the post-Vatican II issues - John XXIII or Paul VI?

:LOL:

Saint Pius X introduced radical, Bugnini-like changes to the Breviary, reversed the order of the sacraments (from confirmation, then first communion to first communion, then confirmation), and introduced daily and weekly reception of the Eucharist. I'm not saying that in itself is bad, but it opened the door to Catholics thinking that Communion at every Mass is practically an obligation.

Pius XII allowed Bugnini to revise Holy Week.

However, I'll agree that it was good to change the times for the Holy Week liturgies (like Good Friday to 3pm, the Easter Vigil to actually be at night rather than Saturday morning, ugh) and Pius X's returning of Sundays to being green days more than saints' feasts.


But yes, the early 20th century popes as a whole tampered with the liturgy enough to make it a papal trend. Paul VI was the culmination of his predecessors' work.
