The End of the Latin Mass

John at The Inn at the End of the World posted this piece by William F. Buckley, Jr. from November 10, 1967.
It is absolutely right that the vernacular should displace the Latin if by doing so, the rituals of Catholic Christianity bring a greater satisfaction to the laity and a deeper comprehension of their religion. There oughtn't to be any argument on this point, and there certainty isn't any from me...

He merely points out that it was already apparent the liturgical changes failed on their own terms.

(via Video meliora, proboque; Deteriora sequor)
