I don't say this often, but kudos to Dreher for publishing this:
I had been in a couple of conversations with converts to Orthodox praising FM-G's commentary on the matter. It never ceases to amaze me what nonsense people will believe so long as it is couched in pious terminology and postures. Glad to see someone grant at least some of the convert phronemaniacs a little perspective here.
Many Orthodox go into a rage at the slightest prospects of introducing modern Russian into the services...
But wait - Conciliar Press told me that Eastern Orthodox have historically used vernacular languages!?!?
