There are some rather interesting discussions and postings across the Blogosphere at the moment.
The New Liturgical Movement has two interesting reports from Santissima Trinitata dei Pellegrini in Rome and St-Eugene, Paris. The comments are very interesting indeed and reveal that despite the appearance of red vestments, dalmatics etc much of the Old Rite was actually celebrated including, in Rome, the pericopes of blessing, Sanctus, preface etc. The growing sense of the inadequacies of the committee-work fabricated rites is becoming ever more apparent. The respected British blogger Mulier Fortis has written a post about a splendidly celebrated Traditional Palm Sunday and has a set of photographs that really are a reference set for this magnificent rite.
On Rorate Caeli there is an interesting post referring to a fascinating article on ordinations during the liturgy of Holy Saturday by Fr. Anthony Cekada, which can be found in full along with other interesting posts about Holy Week on his own blog Doctrina Liturgica.
As previously I would urge readers to examine what was hacked out of the Traditional Rites in the 1956 'restoration' and re-read the splendid articles by Gregory DiPippo and Fr. Stephen Carusi.
As to my remarks on Palm Sunday about 'what the vicar likes' it does seem that orthopraxis and good taste is developing in the right direction. An encouraging sign as we approach the Sacred Triduum.
