    You wrote: … the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican dicastory which supervises the Ordinariates on behalf of the Holy Father, has issued an explanatory text with “Frequently Asked Questions” on the new Ordinariate Mass Liturgy.

    In particular, I found the following sentences in the answer to the second question to be quite interesting.

    The liturgical norms and principles of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal are therefore normative for this expression or form of the Roman Rite. The Missal also includes a Rubrical Directory which proves instruc-tions for those areas in which Divine Worship diverges from the Roman Missal.

    This means that celebrations according to Divine Worship: The Missal should conform to the General Instructions to the Roman Missal (GIRM) except where the rubrics contained therein direct or authorize deviations therefrom.

    Norm.
