Sacrosanctum Concilium 3

Jumping right in:

Wherefore the sacred Council judges that the following principles concerning the promotion and reform of the liturgy should be called to mind, and that practical norms should be established.

These practical norms will come up in the bulk of the document; be patient.

Among these principles and norms there are some which can and should be applied both to the Roman rite and also to all the other rites. The practical norms which follow, however, should be taken as applying only to the Roman rite, except for those which, in the very nature of things, affect other rites as well.

So the Romans are saying that we’re going to muck up–I mean reform– the Roman Rite and the other rites are to be untouched by the considerations coming up in the document.Thoughts?
