One of the fruits of the Holy Father’s Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum will be the "gravitational pull" that will be exerted when the older forms call priests (and others) to correct their ars celebrandi.
Keeping in mind that the plural of anecdote is not "data", this is from a reader (edited):
While "my" parish continues its path towards the TLM … I can testify that at St. Theresa in suburban Miami, we are clearly feeling the effects of Summorum Pontificum, and they are making their way to our Ordinary Form Mass on any given Sunday. It is my expectation this gravitational pull (at least in our case) not only enhances the reverence among the faithful, but also paves the way for the eventual implementation of the TLM. (Fortunately, our parish has always been a bit…um…Not Progressive, and thus was spared a wreckovation. As a result we still have a High Altar and Communion Rail. (Here is a link to a photo.)
Even at the 9am (i.e. "the Children’s") Mass, the Gloria, is still sung in the usual verse-refrain way but the refrain is all in Latin, while the Sanctus, and Agnus Dei are completely in Latin. For an added thrill, we also have the Kyrie in Greek. Our congregation, including very young children, have — gasp! — managed to cope with nary a peep. Even my 10 year old with autism has no problems with the Latin.
Our parish is abundantly blessed, not just with two priests (and one who resides seasonally), and a permanent deacon but also the presence of the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart. The schola is also more "Latinized" (as is the Children’s Choir!) and the 10:30am Mass has even given itself over to "the yells, bells and smells" approach.
Slowly but surely, more of the congregation is receiving Communion on the tongue, more of them are at least genuflecting (and more are kneeling, even though the floor is marble–ouch!). Most of those most affected by this are the younger members of the parish. What is even better is that nobody thinks that little ol’ lady with the mantilla who knelt to receive Communion is crazy any more. Many of the priests from the archdiocese — including some young and renegade orthodox Jesuits! — visit just for the joy of saying Mass here. (The younger ones even wear cassocks and a saturno is rumored to be around.)
Deo volente, the gravitational pull will gather momentum.
Please remember me at your altar.
Thanks for that!
