"We may notice that pious persons will be the ones most disturbed [by the changes], because, having their respectable way of listening to Mass, they will feel distracted from their customary thoughts and forced to follow those of others. Not Latin, but the spoken [vernacular] language, will be the main language of the Mass. To those who know the beauty, the power, the expressive sacrality of Latin, its replacement by the vulgar language is a great sacrifice: we lose the discourse of the Christian centuries, we become almost intruders and desecrators in the literary space of sacred expression, and we will thus lose a great portion of that stupendous and incomparable artistic and spiritual fact that is the Gregorian Chant. We will thus have, indeed, reason for being sad, and almost for feeling lost: with what will we replace this angelic language? It is a sacrifice of inestimable price."
- Paul VI on the new Missale Romanum, the Novus Ordo Missae, on November 30, 1969
Okay, I know I shouldn’t perhaps be the one to say this, but we should have never convert into national languages. The weird thing not everyone realize is that Gor and religion are not philosophy and thus they have real power, which can be kept stronger only in certain circumstances. Not having those will never steal the whole power, but some part of it(and it is not against God, it is by His knowledge and, perhaps approvement? I don’t know). Latin is a part of said power and we shoot ourselves in the foot by replacing it.
