Article source is “First Things”, not George Weigel. Mea culpa.
So when does the Hail Mary get changed to "Holy Mary, Mother of the Incarnation of God the Son..."?

I moved to a new town and a new parish around the time this new liturgy came up. It doesnt upset me or the congregation, through people like me find ourselves mumbling through responses we knew by heart, because we don't anymore. But I found this far less a problem than the singing.
Yes, the singing. They never stop in this church. A bunch of guitar and tambourine playing hippies singing all through the mass, including over the consecration of the Eucharist. Drives me nuts, I didn't come to a concert, I came to mass.
I went to a conservative church when I was a kid. Some of the priests still did the odd latin bit and until the 1980s you still had to kneel to get communion. The music was part of the mass, of course, but it never was in competition with the liturgy. And they didn't make us sing every response, which in my experience just results in about 85% of the church standing there and not participating. Would that I could find such a church today.
