“Chants closely related to the readings should, of course, be appropriately transferred for use with these readings. For pastoral reasons also there is an option regarding the chants for the Proper of Seasons: namely, as circumstances suggest, to replace the text proper to a day with another text belonging to the same season.”

Most Rev’d René H. Gracida—chosen as bishop by Pope Paul VI and friend of Pope St. John Paul II—is shown making the following declaration: “When the priest speaks to the people, he should look at them and speak to them. When the priest speaks to God he should look at the Crucifix.”

He continues: “Do it gradually, with proper catechesis, to avoid shocking the people. This is the problem of the Reform after the Vatican Council. Changes were sprung upon the people without any warning. So, we must not do that now.”
