Sue-In answer to C. Stringer I would point out : I. That the Mass is identified "with the Feast or day" by the Introit prescribed in the Roman Rite.
2. That a congregation can-with much patience-be taught " when to stand. kneel and sit" without the aid of a "surpliced choir."
3. That some. at least. of the "Proper," is within the reach of simple folk.
4. That I agree with him about Creator Suntme rerun, though I don't think the purists would think it '' a Latin gem."
5. That the Prayer for the King might indeed be said in the vernacular, and with occasional explanation of its scope and import.
6. That the Angelus, also in the vernacular, is quite suitable after the " last" Mass. but that there is no need for a " closing hymn." Evening devotions afford inure scope for vernacular hymns. In our small parish we sing Cornpline in Latin. After in -Instruction we sing a hymn in the vernacular bearing on "the Feast or day " before Expositionduring which we sometimes sing one of the hymns permitted in the vernacular. After the Adoremus we have a " closing hymn " of devotional appeal-and thus, I hope. we obey rhe letter and spirit of Mediator Di which tells us both to do the one thing. and yet not leave the other undone
