Peter J. Having just prepared a new edition of my own guide to the ceremonies of the Post-Vatican II Rite, I can empathise with the problems anyone encounters in undertaking this kind of technical work.
But this Australian editor has achieved something more. He has set the old rubrics and laws in the framework of the current Code of Canon Law The result is much common sense that rises above a traditionalist fantasy world always gazing into the past.
This book sets the traditional rite in the context of the Church of today, affirming that the old rite can be a living liturgy, not some resuscitated museum piece. Nevertheless, I confess to remaining unconverted by the traditional rite. I find its complexity quite daunting, even if it emerged from the Middle Ages reformed and standardised by St Pius V in While it may be less organic, the provisions and possibilities of the post-Vatican II reform still make more sense to me in a parish context.
