Gloria Patri in the LiturgyUse of the Gloria Patri in the Latin Mass has always been muted. Now, it is not used at all, which I think is a impoverishment. The Roman liturgy already has fewer and less explicit mentions of the Trinity (usually just a coordinating formula) than in the Byzantine, where one really KNOWS he's worshiping the Triune God. I also think we should use the entrance, offeratory and communion antiphons and psalms rather than (or at least as well as) using hymns.
