Happy Birthday Novus Ordo!

Today is the 40th birthday of the Novus Ordo Missae

On this day in 1969 His Holiness Pope Paul VI promulgated with the Apostolic Constitution Missale Romanum the new edition of the Roman Missal which would come into effect at the following 1st Sunday of Advent.

Now that the Novus Ordo is 40, are there signs of a mid-life crisis?

This is usually about the time when the greater respect is gained for the past, right?  Concern for the future prompts change, right?
