This Morning At OLQM Had No Kick To It

13 Dec

This is WHAT I get for going to the Tridentine Latin Mass, with the Byzantine Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom, is the realization that the Current Roman Rite Mass, is a really Banal “On The Spot Product”, especially in a “Foreign Language” called English.
It really is NOT The Roman Rite, especially with the Protestant Style Table Altar, with the Priest facing “Versus Populum”, as if the Mass was a Classroom, options such as a Cut Down “Kyrie”, an Offertory which speaks not of Propitiary Prayers for the Faithful, both Living and Dead, nor of Sacrifice, as that would offend Protestants, but of Filler until the Consecration Part of the Mass, officially called “The Lord’s Supper or Mass”, which is what the Anglican “Archbishop” of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer, called The Liturgy, shorn of Sacrifice. The Prayers of The Faithful, which come from the Byzantine Divine Liturgies of St Basil The Great and St John Chrysostom, essentially are much more powerful in the Byzantine Rite, as the Greeting Prayer at the Opening of The Ordinary Form Mass, is much more fitting as the Opening of The Eucharistic Anaphora in the Byzantine Rite. The Presentation Of The Gifts of merely transferring the Bread and Wine from an Aisle Table to the Priest standing on the Periphery of The Sanctuary, is an Ancient Roman Rite Custom, discarded in the 12th Century as no one made Eucharistic Bread or aged Wine by that time, that having been turned over to the Monasteries with Monks doing this.
The Reading of Scripture:
The Form in the Tridentine Latin Mass is Collect, Epistle, Gradual, Alleluia(Tract), Sequence, Gospel & Homily, which came from the 6th Century AD, from Pope St Gregory The Great. This replaced Collect, Old Testament, Responsorial Psalm, New Testament, Responsorial Psalm, Alleluia(Tract), Gospel and Homily.

In the Tridentine Latin Mass, it is only two readings, that of Epistle and Gospel. In the Novus Ordo, it is Collect, Old Testament, Responsorial Psalm, New Testament, Alleluia(Tract) Gospel.

One can see why Pope St Gregory The Great did changes to the Roman Rite Catholic Liturgy, as he realized that The Roman Rite is New Testament Based and that this is to get the laity to pay attention to the Word of God, and into the Contemplation of The Mystery, hence the Roman Gradual and Alleluia(Tract) before The Gospel. What was restored to the Sacred Readings came via an Anglican “Bishop”, a form discarded by Pope St Gregory The Great.

As far as the Banality of The Ordinary Form Mass, copying the Byzantine and Antiochian Rites in a haphazard manner, confuses The Faithful. With 17 Eucharistic Anaphoras, it is in reality the destruction of The Roman Rite. The destructive changes in the Roman Canon, including turning Mysterium Fidei into a chant, supposedly adapted from Byzantine Practice, confuses The Faithful in regards to Transubstantiation.

But allowing Protestants to assist the writing of The Current Mass says that all this False Ecumenism, led to the Systemic Disbelief in the Corporeal Real Presence of Christ in The Holy Eucharist. The Current Mass does NOT present the Belief of The Sacrifice at Calvary. It presents the belief in a Holy Meal if nothing else.

Restore the Tridentine Latin Mass to Sunday. Relegate the Ordinary Form Mass to weekday celebrations.

It Will Work. Trust me on this one.

Kyrie Elaison!
