Father, happy to hear you made it back safe and sound. I would have asked this in e-mail, as it’s a bit off-topic, but I couldn’t find your address. Why is it that many Diocesan Priests that love the TLM and pray for its freedom still often still pray the Novus Ordo versus Populum, on a table altar (instead of a high altar), and utilizing lay lectors? I imagine the circumstances could vary greatly, but do Bishops often require the Novus Ordo to be celebrated in the new manner, in so many ways opposed to the rubrics of the TLM (recognizing that it is not the TLM)? How is it that these things have become so seemingly mandatory? I understand how Diocesan Priests are between a proverbial rock and a hard place with their Bishops in being forced to celebrate the Novus Ordo, but why does it ever have to be celebrated in the manner described above? This has confounded me, but I am interested in hearing what you have to say about it.
It was an SQL problem (and not my fault!)
I SQL, you SQL, we all SQL for motu proprio. ;) (rhymes it not, but we await for the squealing with delight soon)
Enjoy your “datagathering”.
When asked about the motu proprio as he was walking into St. Peter’s on New Year’s Eve, Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos is reported to have given a one-word reply: “Subito.”
In this context, would its sense be “immediately”? Or just “suddenly” (though perhaps still far in the future)?

In Italian means “immediately”, in Latin “suddenly”.
Having established that, my experience in Roman restaurants is when we asked for the check, the response often was subito.
The check would arrive about 15 minutes later . . . suddenly.
Henry: What RBrown writes is spot on. “Subito is a dangerous word in Italian. The restaurant example is perfect. When you hear subito you never know what is going to happen. However, this was not an Italian speaking. The tone of voice, body language, etc., in that occasion was everything. It might actually have been a pretty comical riposte!
