It is a good thing to have liturgical uniformity. There is something of confessional value in a uniform liturgy. Also away from home the worshiper feels himself spiritually akin to his brethren of the faith where liturgy is familiar. In fact, if that liturgy preserves the traditional forms, he will feel himself akin to the Church of the past and will grow in appreciation of the Church Universal. Conversely, a lack of uniformity in liturgical forms is a cause of bewilderment in worship and a testimonial to a lack of that brotherly consideration which will lead units of the Church, also in adiaphora, to yield to the common good.
