"There is a lack of that kind of organization which favors mature judgment. Move on, move on, get it out. Schemata are multiplied without ever arriving at a considered form. The system of discussion is bad … Often the schemata arrive just before the discussions. Sometimes, and in important matters, such as the new anaphoras, the schema was distributed the evening before the discussion was to take place … Father Bugnini has only one interest: press ahead and finish."
— Cardinal Antonelli (Peritus during the Second Vatican Council)

The Traditional Way Of Having "Asperges Me"
published 21 November 2014 by Jeff Ostrowski

646 Asperges Me Traditional ERE IS THE TRADITIONAL WAY of doing the Asperges Me for the EF. The priest enters from the sacristy with the M.C. before Mass, intoning “Asperges Me.”

After the sprinkling and concluding prayers, the priest goes back to the sacristy, changes his cope for the chasuble while thurifer, crucifer, acolythi, and so forth are lining up at the back of church. During this time, the organist improvises on the Introit. As the priest enters—this time from the back of church—the Introit is sung.
