Why is it yet "Another grim day for Tradition..."?
The Saint Lawrence Press:
The 'liturgical books of 1962' have seen considerable revision of the once beautiful feast with changes both in 1960 and, previously, with the introduction of novel texts in the 1950s ... The 1950's creation is banal and ugly compared with the ancient texts ... The Octave was abolished in 1955 and so, within the space of five years, over a millenium's veritable tradition, organic development and beauty was simply tossed aside in the name of 'living tradition'.
