“Traditio, Traditio….Traditio”(A Touch Of “Fiddler On The Roof”)

18 Dec

My Most Dear Friend has gone & done it. After the purchase of a Used Tridentine Latin Mass Missal in 2013 & a White Mantilla in 2014 & a Black Mantilla in 2015, it was on Wednesday, December 16th, 2015 at the 6:00PM Tridentine Latin Mass at Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan on West 37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue, where she 1st Experienced “Traditio.”
The Mass, offered by a Priest, assisted by a Deacon & Subdeacon, was a Missa Solemnes(High Mass).

She has finally experienced “The REAL Roman/Latin Rite.” And Since she is a Convert from Greek Orthodoxy, she saw certain elements from the TLM which correspond to The Divine Liturgy Of St John Chrysostom.
For she told me that she had gone to a Wedding Liturgy in The Hamptons at a Methodist Church & that this morning’s Novus Ordo Mass, looked like that Methodist Liturgy.
It was at this point that I explained the Novus Ordo Liturgy & the fact that this Liturgy had Protestants involved in the Design.

She noticed that the differences of the two Roman Rite Masses are “Night & Day.” Only one of them, the Tridentine Latin Mass, truly “Speaks Catholic”, especially on The High Altar.
