Back to the People!

Now it’s up to the laity to decide which church they really want — and why.
— Joan Chittister, OSB, Coming soon to a church near you

During at least one decade in my life “back to the people” had a positive meaning with many of us. Summorum Pontificum gives a liturgy that had been denied them back to the people. It gives a Mass celebrated to the letter rather than devised by liturgists back to the people. It gives their missals back to the people.
