Yesterday after Mass, Father Superior gave a presentation on the meaning of the rubrics which the priest follows in celebrating the TLM. The emphasis was on the meaning of the rubrics rather than the rubrics themselves. Even though I served as an altar boy in the 50s, I did not realize the significance of the gestures and associated actions of the priest. It was truly a welcome and edifying presentation. But the overwhelming feeling I had at the end was how unfortunate are those who attend the novus ordo who have no knowledge of such things and, indeed, may have little in the way of rubrics at their liturgies.
