Entertainment during the Church Reformation after Vatican II
There were many changes as a result of the Vatican II. Some of these changes were:
1. Music in the church was usually Gregorian chants or in Latin, but changed to some of the music we sing now in Church.
2. The priest used to say everything in Latin, but after Vatican II they changed it to where the priest said mass in the common language of that area.
3. The priest would never face the audience when he was saying mass, but that changed to where he now faces the audience when he talks.
