Hello, forgive me, as I'm new to this forum. I've seen the term praestantia ritus latinae used on these boards a few times, and it perfectly represents the attitude my parents hold. I'm not having any luck finding this term anywhere else, but I'm trying to find out who coined this/espouses this/teaches this. I want to refute this idea, but I'm trying to find it. So far, it seems like an unofficial position some people choose to take. Where are they getting this idea? From what authority do they get this attitude? I hope this question makes sense.

Since the Latin rite is the rite of the holy Roman church and this church is mother and teacher of the other churches, the Latin rite should be preferred to all other rites. It follows that it is not lawful to transfer from the Latin to the Greek rite. Nor may those who have come over to the Latin rite from the Greek or Oriental rite return again to the Greek Rite, unless particular circumstances occasion the giving of a dispensation (constitution Etsi Pastoralis 57, sect. 2, no. 13, in Our Bullarii, vol. 1).

Of course this has been repudiated by subsequent Popes and Vatican Council II.

would you happen to know when Latins were allowed to make the change from Latin to Greek?

I think in the late 19th early 20th century things started to loosen up. Then after Vatican II it was easier.

That explains why my parents have such issues with it then. They are deeply suspicious of Vatican II. Thanks so very much for all your help. God bless you!
