Mass changes: What’s all the commotion about?

What’s all the fuss about? Practice Masses and extra printing of the words of the liturgy. Will the improved wording disrupt the congregation?

Forty-some years ago there was a real change in the missal. The priests and the congregation both had to really learn everything over. I don’t remember nearly the commotion that these changes in wording have caused. The better translation is good. It will improve our appreciation of the Mass. But to treat it like a schism is ridiculous.
