At the Council of Trent, the subject was raised whether it was correct to refer to the unconsecrated elements of bread and wine as “immaculata hostia” (spotless victim) and “calix salutaris” (chalice of salvation) in the offertory prayers. Likewise the legitimacy of the making the sign of the cross over the elements after the Eucharistic consecration was discussed.

Fr. Fryar is talking about the new FSSP Apostolate in Los Angeles.

I especially liked where he gives concrete examples of how the Extraordinary Form has influenced Ordinary Form parishes.
