Naturally Latin Traditionalists would be interested in the views expressed here.

I think Church Slavonic (or Latin) should be retained to the degree that it can be rendered easily intelligible to the faithful; this is unlikely to be the case for the entirety of the liturgy.

In mission territories that do not have a cultural or linguistic tie to Church Slavonic, a hieratic version of the vernacular should be developed or adapted from another source.
