I don't know how Drolesky can put his name to something so ahistorical and meaningless.

How is this ahistorical and meaningless?

To begin with, it implies that the Mass has always been uniform and static. In fact, the Mass that Juan Diego attended predates the Tridentine reforms by several decades. While substantially the same, before Trent the Holy Sacrifice as offered in the Latin Rite was characterised by a rich variety and elaboration according to location and the traditions of the celebrant's order, most (but not all of which) was pared away at Trent.
