Your List of Reforms

Everybody should check out Boniface's post on Unam Sanctam about some no-frills, no-hassle reforms that could be made in the Church that would have long-term positive impacts. He gives a list of twelve.

1. 
Eucharistic Fast and Manner of Reception 

2. 
Latin 

3.
Restoration of Chant (Again) 

4.
Location of Tabernacle and Posture at Mass 

5.
Reaffirm Episcopal Authority in Cases of Private Revelations 

6.
Cease Interreligious Events 

7.
Encyclical on Catholic Missions 

8.
Exorcists 

9.
New Orders 

10.
Reinstate the Oath Against Modernism 

11.
Bring out the Triregnum 

12.
Interpretive Norms for the Documents of Vatican II

I honestly don't think that number 12 would do a lot of good. Nobody reads what the documents say anyway. Having dealt with too many heretical clerics, I can honestly say that none of them refer to anything the Council actually says.

I'd rank 1, 4, 6, and 7 as my highest priorities, if only because they'd be the easiest (I think) to pull off.

Any other suggestions?
