  1. Philip M.McGhee says:

    A rite integrating elements of the 1570 and 1970 liturgies might well resemble the mass rite as described in Edmund Bishop’s essay “Genius of the Roman Rite”,largely based on the Gregorian Ordines (Migne,PL 46). Quite frankly,this is the liturgical structure I had hoped would evolve out of Vatican II. The 1970 rite also has a few structual difficulties. The recently revised Eucharist of the Evangelical Luthern Church in America anticipates this model.
