Archbp Bugnini Thought About Totally Chucking Out CATHOLIC Elements Of The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass

28 Jan

The New Catholic Liturgy, promulgated on Sunday, 11/29/1969, was supposed to be PROTESTANT Friendly. But, while some of these Elements are Lutheran and Anglican in Practice, there are Byzantine Catholic Elements in this Mass.
The Byzantine Rite was into Vernacular in both Catholic and Eastern Orthodox. The Prayer of The Faithful is based on Antiphons chanted in The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.
Later, with Standing to receive Holy Communion, that is a Byzantine Practice.
Also later was Communion under both Species. Whereas in Byzantine Rite where both The Body & Blood of Christ is served via Communion Spoon, with Communicant tipping head back to receive the Sacrament, in the Latin(Roman)Rite, Latins 1st receive the Body of Christ then go to 2nd Station to receive the Blood of Christ.
There is the 3 Year Cycle of Readings of The Epistles & Gospels. This came from a Protestant Lectionary called The Revised Common Lectionary.

Protestants do not believe in the Total Change of Substance of The Bread & Wine into The Body & Blood, Soul & Divinity of Christ. Rather, in these two Protestant Practices, especially Lutherans and Broad Church Anglicans who believe in Consubstantiation (Also Methodists and Presbyterians), where The Body and Blood of Christ only co-exist with the Bread and Wine. The Theory of Mere Symbolism is advanced by Ulrich Zwingli.
So Communion in The Hand, which may have been Arian Heresy in Practice, is practiced by Protestants. Arius only believed in One Nature of Jesus.

My Most Dear Friend, as Greek Orthodox, used to receive what is called Antidoron at The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. Antidoron(Ahndeethoron) is the Blessed Bread, not Consecrated Bread, from the Same Leavened Bread Loaf used in the Holy Eucharist. That Blessed Bread is distributed from a Basket. That Blessed but Not Consecrated Bread is distributed into one’s hand.

The Nicene Creed is prayed in The Entire Catholic Church throughout The World, as is The Lord’s Prayer.

It should be noted that in what is called the Ordinary Form of The Holy Sacrifice of The Mass, We Roman Catholics, like Our Byzantine, Antiochan, Alexandrian, Armenian and Chaldean Catholic Brethren, believe that the Elements of Bread & Wine, become The Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ. The Eastern Orthodox Churches of Byzantine Rite also believe this.

Gregorian Chant enhances the Current Ordinary Form of The Mass. It may also be offered in Latin, where the Mass Propers may be sung in Latin. This is something which is in the Sacrosanctorum Concillium.

The Catholic Elements stayed. The Latin Rite Elements along with the Byzantine Rite Elements, preserved The Catholicity of The Current, Ordinary Form of The Holy Sacrifice of The Mass.

Only The Table Altar and Communion In The Hand are actually Protestant. The Scriptural Readings of Today, with Old Testament, Psalm, Epistle and Gospel follows the Lutheran, Anglican Broad Church System. The Confeitior follows from Lutheran. The Rest of This Mass follows Latin and Byzantine Practice.

Interestingly enough, one of the 6 Protestant Ministers was ordained a Catholic Priest. Fr Max Thurian, who was Sub Prior of The Taize Community of Brothers, called for a “Reform Of The Reform” of the Current Form of Mass, which calls for “Ad Orientem”, from the time of The Offertory to the End of Holy Communion.  Sadly, he was ignored.
But, Pope Benedict XVI did grant by Motu Proprio of 7/7/2007, full permission of any Latin Rite Priest to offer the Tridentine Latin Mass of 1962 Roman Missal.

Most Roman Catholics have no clue about Byzantine Rite Catholic Liturgy. It is Ancient and Transcendent Liturgy. If Roman Catholics really want to understand their Faith, head to the Byzantine Rite. One will really learn about their Faith and, perhaps, understand the Current Liturgy more so than ever before.

Gloria In Excelcis Deo, Et In Terra Pax Hominibus!

    I am happy that you have come over to this site today, Joan. To me, it is “Mission Critical” that Roman(Latin) Rite Catholics learn more about the Ordinary Form of The Holy Sacrifice of The Mass, before calling it just another Protestantized Liturgy. As one who has partaken of the Sacred Opportunity go to the Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, Bishop, Confessor & Doctor of The Church, that most Intensely Beautiful & TranscendentLiturgy is found in elements of our Mass, such as Prayer of the Faithful, derived from the Antiphons which are chanted in the Divine Liturgy. That vernacular is used in our Ordinary Rite Mass, is of Byzantine Origin. The same is also said of our queueing for Holy Communion. This I also direct to my Comrades In Arms in the Tridentine Latin Mass Group, so they may understand this Mass.
    Making reception of The Body of Christ on The Tongue will restore Reverence for The Body of Christ. If the Latin(Roman) Rite is serious about Holy Communion under both forms(Which is Byzantine Practice, BTW), it can be done by Intinction, which does not spread illnesses around. The Priest or Deacon dips the Body of Christ into The Blood. Having Non Ordained People doing this, is illicit, as the Chalice and The Consecrated Elements are only to be touched by a Man who received the Sacrament of Holy Orders. This is supposed to be the Roman(Latin) Practice. The Byzantines take this very seriously.
