“Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom at the 2013 Napa Institute Conference” on YouTube

18 Aug

This EWTN Special Presentation is of the Napa Institute Conference.
The Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom, Bishop, Confessor, Doctor of The Catholic Church, is a Liturgy of The Byzantine Rite of The Catholic Church as well as the Eastern Orthodox Churches.
Many Traditional Catholics, without access to the Tridentine Latin Mass in the 1970s, often went to the Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgies, as opposed to the Novus Ordo Mass, because to Traditional Catholics, the Novus Ordo Mass was heavily Protestantized Liturgy.

Do note that in the Divine Liturgy, the Priest faces Liturgical East, just like in the Tridentine Latin Mass.
The idea of Lay Lectors and Cantors, is Byzantine Rite in Origin, but none are in the Sanctuary. In fact, like the Priest, the Cantor & Lector, who are often the same Man or Woman faces Liturgical East just like The Priest. So if you have a Permanent Deacon at Mass preaching The Gospel, this is of Byzantine Rite Origin.
Holy Communion Under Both Species is of Byzantine Rite Origin. Standing for Holy Communion is also Byzantine Rite Origin.
But, Holy Communion In The Hand(A Mano) is Protestant in Practice.
The Byzantine Rite Practice of receiving both Body and Blood, is via Intinction and one receives the Sacrament via a Priest who utilizes Holy Communion Spoon to drop the Body and Blood, Soul & Divinity of Christ in one’s mouth, head tilted back.
If only the Roman Rite could do this, instead of Station To Station, it would cut out Holy Communion A Mano.
If anything, the Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom is Ancient, Traditional, Beautiful and Catholic. The Novus Ordo is NOT.

BUT, the Novus Ordo is still a Valid Mass.
