Rather, combine the very best of both rites. This Pope gets it right. Remember, even though I am past 50, I hardly remember the old mass, I am very much a child of the new mass.
Well, how are you going to “combine” them? The priest can be facing God or he can be facing you, — not both. People either kneel at the barrier and receive on the tongue or receive in the hand without kneeling. The consecration is either in Latin or it is in English. Prayer to St. Michael is either said or not said. The Good Friday prayer for the conversion of the Jews is either said or not said. Etc.
