Rubrics and Ritual

I came across Rubrics and Ritual yesterday. There`s not much information about it`s author except that he lives in the Vicariate of Arabia. Well worth a look if you are interested in the nitty-gritty of the 1962 and 1970 missals.

I would also recommend ordorecitandi by Rubricarius which gives interesting insights into the Roman liturgy particularly in its pre-1962 form.

On the subject of pre-Vatican II liturgical changes, let Msgr Bugnini speak for himself: "The present decree [simplifying the rubrics in 1955] has a contingent character. It is essentially a bridge between the old and the new, and if you will, an arrow indicating the direction taken by the current restoration." In the future, let's hope traditionalists move more towards the pre-1962 liturgical forms rather than trying to latch on to a liturgy that was always meant to pave the way for more reforms.
