Based on your response to PODCAzT 93, and my own desire to drill more deeply into the issue, we welcome back as our guest Pope Paul VI (+1978).
In the last PODCAzT we explored Paul’s General Audience of 26 November 1969, a few days before the Novus Ordo Missaewent into force. This time we turn the clock back one more week to his General Audience of 19 Nov 1969 when he begins to address the changes people were about to experience.
We are coming up on the 40th Anniversary of the implementation of the Novus Ordo in the Latin Church.
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.
The questions Pope Paul asked back in 1969 are valid for us as well.
You will hear Paul Paul’s General Audience text along with my commentary.
Be careful if you have headphones or earphones… the beginning is a bit jarring. I meant it to be jarring.
