I just got a copy of Ritual Notes, around in which I am enjoying looking. I have to say, as much as I would like to implement everything they suggest (I've heard of "ritual notes parishes"), I just don't think its practicable, esp. for someone in my situation, and not least because I'm not in charge. I wonder if there's a middle way. I suppose the best thing to do, in terms of a partial implementation, is to comport oneself as per their recommendations during the liturgy.
I do wish we could all go back to ad orietem or ad apsidem, as the case may be. After thinking about it for a long while (a few years), I think that celebrating versus populum implies a number of theological things that ought not to be implied. Or maybe its more accurate to say that celebrating thus can implicitly give the impression of certain theological things that are incorrect. For example, it de-emphasizes the mass qua sacrifice, and proportionately disctracts from our Lord and his sacrifice.
This has become a rant. I wonder what others think / recommend (esp.viz. implementing Ritual Notes).
