I have done the same blog post about the Blessing of Water and Salt.
Now, I am doing the one about the prayer of the priest in offering the host using the pre-Vatican II Missal aka TLM aka EF Mass and the Novus Ordo aka Paul VI Mass aka OF Mass.
Here is what we have right now in the Ordinary Form:
Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation. Through your goodness we have this bread to offer, which earth has given and human hands have made. It will become for us the bread of life.
And here is what was before, and what Bugnini and gang want to replace:
Accept, O holy Father, almighty and eternal God, this unspotted host, which I, Thy unworthy servant, offer unto Thee, my living and true God, for my innumerable sins, offenses, negligences, and for all here present: as also for all faithful Christians, both living and dead, that it may avail both me and them for salvation unto everlasting life. Amen.
Why it has to be changed........LORD ONLY KNOWS!
What do you think?
Over "noble simplicity"?
