In PART I we explored Paul’s General Audience of 26 November 1969, a few days before the Novus Ordo Missae went into force. In PART IIwe heard his General Audience of 19 Nov 1969 when he begins to address the changes people were about to experience.
In this PODCAzT we will hear Pope Paul’s Apostolic Constitution Missale Romanum. with which he promulgated the Novus Ordo Missae

We are facing our own challenges today, with changes to the English translation and also the reintegration of the pre-Conciliar form of Mass in the life of the Church, thanks to Benedict XVI’s Summorum Pontificum.

You will hear Paul Paul’s General Audience text along with my commentary.
