1st Holy Communion & Bad Music

14 May

There is SOMETHING To be said for SILENCE. The Tridentine Latin Mass & the Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom(Bishop, Confessor, Doctor of The Church), both experience this at Holy Communion. Not so in Novus Ordo Land, as “Music” of what My Most Dear Friend calls “Vomit, Barf, Puke & S–t”, warbles over the Wurlitzer Organ. It is the type of Liturgical Music, which can be considered to be Torture by The Geneva Convention & The Canadian Human Rights Commission, as well as unsuitable for use as theme music for assorted Television Series on CBC in Canada. CBC’s Resident Curmudgeon, The Redoubtable Rex Murphy, would call this Gaggle “The Utter Disonance of Trite Tripe, with the Ability to cause massive intestinal distress.”
No Doubt that Peter Mansbridge would concur.
Ever since the Seeming End of the Tridentine Era & Coming of The Novus Ordo Era, the Emphasis is on Meal instead of The Sacrifice. And the Music is written to express the Nouvelle Theologie of a Protestant Friendly Liturgy called The Mass.
Opening a 1st Holy Communion Mass with a Sure Fire Schutte Song(Hymns Are Sung TO God), “Table Of Plenty”, which would cause Fits to both Tridentine Latin Mass Attendees as well as for Catholics of The Eastern Catholic Churches, is a Horizontal Song. One is never supposed to sing the Part of The Christ unless one is a Bishop, Priest or Deacon.
As the Doctrine of The Body & Blood of Christ is The Doctrine of Holy Communion, WHY is this Song played, as it virtually infers a Pizza Party? Because, ever since the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council(V II), the emphasis became Meal Oriented, in the Name of False Ecumenism, which Protestants proclaim since the Time of Martin Luther & Ulrich Zwingli, both Apostate Catholic Priests, who were both Excommunicated for Heresy & Apostasy.
Almost 50 Years have passed since Benedictine Archabbot Rembert Weakland, with a couple of Revolutionaries, brought into being the Utterly Nauseating “Folk Mass”, strummed on Guitars, replete with Music With Absolutely No Majesty. I call it “106.7 Lite FM.” This occurred While The Tridentine Form of Mass was still in effect in October of 1967. Archabbot Weakland was later named Archbishop of Milwaukee, WI. He discovered a slew of Loopholes in the V II Modernist Document, “Sacrosanctum Concillium”, Fr Annibale Bugnini’s Blueprint for a Protestant Friendly Liturgy called The Novus Ordo Mass. A sure sign of Change would be the Playing & Singing of “Bread Songs.”
At the(Stripped Down) Offertory, there is what is called “The Presentation Of The Gifts”, which is merely transferring the Bread & Wine to The Priest, so that the Priest will offer up the Bread & Wine & later consecrate it into The Body & Blood of Christ.
The “Offertory Song” is a Folk Mass “Classic”, as it almost 50 Years Old, called “Take Our Bread.” The way that song comes out, it treats The Most Holy Sacrament of The Altar, as if it was a Campfire Sing Along about a Meal. Instead of being played on Guitars, the Organ was used.
This was at a Queens Parish in the RC Diocese of Brooklyn, not in Canada.
One wonders how the Children were trained on how to receive Holy Communion. This being the USA, it most likely was in the hand. In my time, in 1962, ONLY the Priest could even touch The Body & Blood of Christ. Hey, his hands, as he acts “In Persona Christi” are consecrated. Ours are NOT.
At Communion Time, “One Bread, One Body”, as part of “The Bread Songfest” was sung.
A “We Are” Song called “We Are Many Parts”(Totally Unknown to me, but is part of “The We Are Songfest of 2016”) was sung. It is a Song where we tell God how good we are, then ask God for “The Spirit Of Love.”

And My Most Dear Friend would have been Utterly Enraged by the Musical Selection, calling for the Starvation of The Music Director. She would have to include the “Liturgy Committee” for such Musical Selection.
It is as if The Liturgy has done a 180° Turn, with Man worshipping himself, forgetting who put Man there.
Keep this up like this and The Triune Lord will send Man something Man will NEVER Forget & it will NOT be a Pretty Sight.

Kyrie Elaison!

“The Summons” Should Be Made Returnable To 125-01 Queens Blvd

12 Oct

It is “Pure Schutte.”  In short, this song was sung at the typical Novus Ordo Mass. Praise & Supplication offered to God, is NOT the object of This Hymn.

Dan Schutte, who has been torturing Catholic Ears since the 1970s, was once a Jesuit Priest & a member of “The St. Louis Jesuits”, most noted for writing the kind of Liturgical Music, which may cause rather lengthy queues at the Vomitarium in one’s Parish(Waiting Times may vary). The Human Rights Commissioners of the European Union, have called this music a form of Torture, not to be used on Prisoners.

Yikes!

“The Silly Summer Of Ordinary Time, Ends”

22 Aug

I have to be at a Barbeque, jointly sponsored by Ancient Order Of Hibernians Queens Division 14 & Morris Park Council Knights of Columbus #566, on The Lawn of Holy Child Jesus Leonard Center in Richmond Hill, Queens, Tomorrow from 1300 Hours EDT(1800 GMT) to 1700 EDT(2200 GMT).
It means that in the Name of Both Orders, I will have to be at the 1200 EDT Mass(1700 GMT).

I wonder just how many “Hymns” I will NOT be singing.

My Apology To Mr. M.V.

10 Jul

Through a Brilliantly Crafted Two Part Miniseries called “Weapons Of MASS Destruction”, a Title which speaks Volumes of WHAT has occurred inside of The Roman/Latin Church, Liturgically, in the Hands of various Modernists, at least One of Whom was a Secular Humanist, who most likely, had no Supernatural Faith Left, preferring Form over Substance. Let’s just say that Vincentian Father Annibale Bugnini, who “Crafted” what is The “Ordinary Form of Mass”, had a certain “Lodge Room Format”, in mind at creating “The Mass Of MAN.”

It is believed that Fr Bugnini, a Reputed Freemason of Liberal Ideas, was into Naturalism, as taught in The Lodge Room. He imagined the Priesthood as one who presides over a Meeting, as if he was a Democratically Elected “Worshipful Master”, with Senior and Junior Deacons to his Right and Left. No longer would “The Holy Sacrifice of The Mass” centre on the actions of The Priest, in the Role of “Alter Christus”, offering the Sacrifice to God The Father, but, rather, to appeal to Rationalist Thought People called Protestants, who preach not of Sacrifice but of a Memorial Meal.

For “Memorial Meal” is dedicated to MAN and NOT GOD. And THIS is Protestant Rationalism and NOT in the Least Bit Catholic.Oddly enough, the Tridentine Form of The Mass, was vernacularized to lead the Faithful down the Primrose Path to Potential Apostasy from the Catholic Faith.

But I realize that the Transformation of Bread and Wine into The Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ still occurs in this Mass. Unfortunately, the Current Catechisis for The Young is still horrendous. So if one can get a copy of The Baltimore Catechism, please do so for so many treasures of The Faith can be learned there.

“Weapons Of MASS Destruction” is Brilliantly done.

Freedom As Opposed To Liberty Both Civil & Faith

9 Jul

I remember some years ago in 1991, when members of the NYC Department Of Consumer Affairs Enforcement Service, received Official Training as Peace Officers in New York State, leading to certification. I was amongst that group and was #1 in the Class.

This Certification gave People The FREEDOM to exercise actual authority to a Just Conclusion. But these People were into Liberty, doing whatever one wants, leading not to a Just Conclusion, but to repeated error, in the Pretense of being Productive, though their Work only produced #s on a Spreadsheet, the idea was for Continouous Pretense that Something was being accomplished in the Pretense of Accomplishing the Goal of Extensive Statistical Lies. What they feared in all their belief in Liberty, is being exposed for being such Frauds. In short, they FEARED being exposed as Thieves who feed at the Public Trough.
For as such Sworn Peace Officer in the City of New York, in the County of New York, I had been on a Counterfeit Goods Investigation Detail. The Sales of Counterfeit Goods such as Prada Milan Handbags made in someone’s Wine Cellar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, constitutes anywhere from A Class A Misdemeanor to a Class D Felony in New York State for the Sale of these Items in Violation of Copywrite Laws. I was engaged in two Lawfully Constituted Arrests as an Arresting Officer in 1995. This was done according to the Law itself.
Sadly, the Custom of People who believe in Groupthink without questioning the Validity of what is being deliberately misinterpreted, is to treat those who believe and practice The Freedom to do what one NEEDS to do, with Utter Contempt, which includes depriving that person of ways of making a decent living, often through the use of forced Psychoanalysis or through the Protecting of their False Doctrine of a Law by the Groupthink and Group Practice of The Glorification of Statistics, minus the Negative Results. This Group Practice takes Liberties with Laws for the Purpose of Fraudulent Self Profit of Members of The Cooperative, who band together to prevent a person from exercising God Given Freedom, to protect Selfish Motives.

For I remember such a member of THAT Cooperative, who told me that in the interest of said League of Liberty Taking, that I should have Falsified an Official Document in the name of that League of Liberty in order to protect them from potential recriminations for their continouous taking of Liberties with the Law so that no one would notice their peculiar disregard of Law. He called it “The Team Way.” I walked away from this Liberty Lover, who like the Rest of the Cooperative of Assorted N’er Do Wells, despise anyone who dares to disagree with their practice of Rationalist Thought, that “Everybody Does This.” For Liberty En Masse is NOTHING More Than TYRRANY. I experienced that TYRRANY of those who take Liberty with the Law, including having been assaulted by Three Thugs, all related to each other, with one as Ringleader, who was placed under Arrest(Or So I Thought), only for a Boss to unlock the Handcuffs, doing so on behalf of his colleagues who also continue to believe not in Truth, but in Protection of False Practice as The Group Sees Fit. As one who believes in what is proper, being betrayed by one who believes in Tyrrany By Liberty, after my being subjected to Violence and not being backed up for performance of a Lawful Duty, it is the loneliest feeling in the world, so that someone would betray someone for approval by those who take Liberty with the Law. The Message of this Cowardly N’er Do Well, who was being Blackmailed for a Private Sexual Action, committed in Agency Restrooms on a Number of Occasions, so that assorted people with questions about their own morality, will, in the Name of Liberty, Coerce People to their own questionable train of thought.
And because I had the Unmitigated Gall to question this Edition of the 1919 Chicago White Sox, who took Liberties with the 1919 World Series by throwing the Series in their Selfishness, I was told to forget about The Freedom to do what has to be done and exchange it for the Liberty Of The Will Of The N’er Do Well Group.
I still chose Freedom & My Conscience is Clear.

Fr Annibale Bugnini took Liberty with WHAT was given to him by the Tradition of One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church. He was enslaved by this Taking of Liberty in his own pride. And he has his Disciples Today. The “Mass Of MAN”, also called Novelty, killed much of The Catholic Faith in the Roman/Latin Rite.

Time to do away with the “Mass Of MAN” and return to Tradition of The Mass of Sacrifice which truly made Saints.

After Yesterday Of “The 11th Sunday Of Ordinary Time Pt. B”

15 Jun

The Part B is the Reading Cycle of Readings of Old Testament, Responsorial Psalm, New Testament, Gospel Acclamation, Gospel and Homily.

My Most Dear Friend, she who spoke Words in regards to this Novus Ordo Church World, remarked “I am so Done With This World.”
She once remarked after bringing a Tridentine Latin Mass Missal to a Novus Ordo Mass, only to discover that unlike the Order of Mass in the Pre Vatican II Church, the Novus Ordo Readings are not like the Pre Vatican II way of offering The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass. She was in full fury when she asked the pertinent question of the morning:
“WHAT IS THIS ABC CRAP?”

We were not talking about the World of “Broadcast Row” in Manhattan. The Name “BRAVO” is an Opera Chant, not a Cable and Satellite “Reality” Television Network, where People act like the Blowholes they really are.
No, for I had to explain that when the planned changes in the Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass were to come about, sadly of a Protestant Nature, that Extra Scripture was to be the Order of The Day. Never mind that both Pope Saint Gregory The Great and Saint John Chrysostom, both being Doctors of The Church, realized that the Sacrifice was the Main Focus of The Mass, the Era of the Post Vatican II was about False Ecumenism and seeking to be like Heretics like Martin Luther and Thomas Cranmer, to make their Spiritual Descendants “Feel At Home.”

Huge Error! Yesterday, I felt like I was at a Methodist “Table & Word ” Liturgy. Because I usually go to a Tridentine Latin Mass or Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, yesterday’s Mass causes me to yearn for either Catholic Form of The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass. Guitar “Music” is for Parties, not for The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass.

There was a fundraising event over in the Parish Centre’s Lawn. It was a Barbecue. It raised funds for Technology for the Parish Catholic School. That is why I was at the Mass. That and due to Rather Intense Suffering From The Need To Be Near a Water Closet(Which is English for Toilet), I couldn’t venture too far from Home. The Quart of Plain Yogurt helped a bit, but it was the mounds of Sauerkraut which saved me from spending my day in the Water Closet. The Sauerkraut was the Delicious Cure for what caused me immense discomfort.

But the BBQ raised funds and that is a Good Thing.

There will be Macs or Chromebooks, iPads and Android Tablets in this School’s Future. Maybe, even Windows Tablets are in the Future.

That is Good News.

As for me, it is back to Traditional Masses for the Rest of The Summer.

And for all of us, It is Time After Pentecost until Advent.

Deo Gratias

From Freedom To Liberty, The Novus Ordo Mass, Part Two

1 May

Liberty is “The God That Failed”, which is a book by a Catholic Barrister named Christopher A. Ferrara, JD. And in The Modernist Liturgy called The Novus Ordo Mass, where the alleged big key is Participation, this Liberty is driving people away.

Renewal? What Flavor of Hashish is being smoked here?
New Springtime? My Arse! I have seen the crowds disappearing.

I am privileged to have a Most Dear Friend. We often have short but intense, Faith Filled Catholic Conversations. But, it was a question which she asked which disturbs her. It disturbs me, ever since the Altar of God became a Table and the Priest stopped facing Liturgical East. Her question is as follows:
“Why Does The Priest Have His Back Turned Away From God?”
I am both Glad & Sad that this question is being asked. It is about time that it is asked. She does read “The Remnant” & watches “The Vortex”, hosted by Gary M. Voris(Gary is his 1st Name, with Michael being his Middle Name, so I will be calling Mr Voris by his 1st Name from Now On). I AM Sad that this question has to come up, because so few Roman/Latin Catholics know so little about the Faith.

The one thing that Vatican II will be known for is the promoting of False Ecumenism, which is “Can’t We All Get Along.” It is also known as “The Era of Dialogue & Holiday Parties.”
For you see, Ecumenical is taken from a Greek Word meaning Home(Oike). So the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council was supposed to be about the Home Church, One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic. One thing which was accomplished was that the Eastern Catholic Churches were told to return to their own Customs & Practices. That is what the Eastern Catholic Churches began to do.
A certain # of USA Bishops during the Council, all from the Roman/Latin Rite, appealed to Pope Paul VI to have the Eastern Catholic Churches closed in North America, and have the Eastern Catholics worship in the Roman/Latin Rite. They were turned down.

Name Of Liturgy:
Missa Paulo VI, also called The Missa Novus Ordo.
Author-Fr Annibale Bugnini, a Vincentian Order Priest, elevated to Rank of Archbishop by Papam Paulo VI
First Major Critics are Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani, Cardinal Bacci & John Carmel Cardinal Heenan.
Cardinals Ottaviani & Bacci write a Critique of The Normative Mass, which is a Novelty all by itself. It is said to be in whole and In part, “A Striking Departure from the Theology of The Mass…which would please the most Modernist Protestant.” This is The Letter by Cardinals Ottaviani & Bacci called “The Ottaviani Intervention.” It is in this letter that the words “Novus Ordo Missa” are spoken.
John Carmel Cardinal Heenan, Archbishop of The See of Westminster(London North of The River Thames) made This observation when witnessing the 1st Offering of This Mass in that during the Tridentine Mass, one sees Men, Women & Children. But with this New Mass, it will be mostly Women & Children, with The Men disappearing. That prediction proved to be True. Pretty Soon, the Novus Ordo Mass would have all the Popularity of the 1979 Oakland Athletics at The Oakland Coliseum, as Attendance & # of Masses begin to drop. Whereas in one Brooklyn Parish on the Queens Border would have 10 Masses on Sunday, by 1979, it would be 5 Masses. That Parish today has only 4 Masses which are Sunday Masses & rather poorly attended(Not unlike the 1979 NY Mets in a Comparable Sense. I often find Major League Baseball References to be useful).

The Tridentine Latin Mass & The Divine Liturgies of Saints John Chrysostom & Basil The Great, have withstood The Test of Time in The One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church. All Three Great Liturgies are about Sacrifice. All Three have inspired Symphonies. Sergei Rachmaninoff even composed a “Divine Liturgy Of St. John Chrysostom Symphony.

The Premiere of what is today’s Roman Rite Catholic Mass, occurred in the R C Diocese of Brooklyn on Sunday, November 30th, 1969, a little bit over 45 Years Ago. Supposedly, certain Traditions were restored.
About 450 Years before this Mass, the Lutherans followed by The Anglicans, were offering The Prototype of this Liturgy, complete with their Ministers offering their Liturgies Facing NOT God but The Congregation in an Assembly(NOT Unlike PS 171K in Brooklyn, where I was in Kindergarten, when people went to the Assembly Hall for certain meetings or performances).

The Novus Ordo Mass is really a “Bare Bones” Mass. There are no “Prayers At The Foot Of The Altar” because Priests do NOT ascend to a High Altar. Rather, they stop at a Freestanding Table type of Altar.
There is an opening line prayer which after the Sign of The Cross is “The Grace & Peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ, The Love of God The Father & The Unity of The Holy Spirit be With You All”, would be followed by “And Also With You”, which was not an actual translation of “Et Cum Spiritu Tuo “(And With Your Spirit).

“And Also With You”, which was a “Translation” is meant to appeal to those Liturgical Protestants such as Evangelical Lutherans & Broad Church Episcopalians as well as Methodists & Presbyterians. It also signifies that the Priest is merely a Delegate of The Assembly, which is Protestant Practice. Protestants deny The Sacrificial Priesthood.

But the Opening to The Mass is NOT a Roman Rite Opening:
“The Grace & Peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ, The Love of God The Father & the Fellowship of The Holy Spirit, Be With All of You.”
This is actually from the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom(Bishop, Confessor, Doctor of The Church, Ordinary Form Calendar on September 14th & Tridentine Calendar on January 27th), and it is the Opening to the Eucharistic Anaphora of St. John Chrysostom & Anaphora of St. Basil The Great, (Bishop, Martyr, Confessor, Doctor of The Church, Feast offered in January).
In the Tridentine Mass, The Priest and Servers at the Foot of the High Altar, had a way different opening. It will be In English, as it was in 1965, so you can follow along:
After The Sign of The Cross, the Priest recited “I Will Go To The Altar of God.” The Servers recited “To God Who Gives Joy To My Youth.” The Priest then recited “Our Help Is In The Name Of The Lord”, to Which the Servers replied “Who Made HEAVEN & Earth.”

“Since When Did Mass Become Like A Chinese Restaurant?”(Penitential Rites A, B & C)
To those of you who are not aware of the Chaos of Sunday, November 30th in 1969, it was the 1st Sunday of Advent. Hence, the Gloria was omitted.
I sat on the Elderts Lane Side of St. Sylvester’s Roman Catholic Church in City Line, Brooklyn, as was my custom in the 1960s. I always had a side view of The Mass, hence I could see what the Priest was doing on the High Altar. But, on This Day & Date, the Priest & Servers were NOT in their usual positions, as The Mass went from Ad Orientem(Facing Towards Liturgical Jerusalem) to Versus Populum(Facing Everyone on The Center Aisle(Mc Kinley Avenue Side).
There are Three Penitential Options. On this Particular Sunday, it was the New Confiteor. Upon reviewing the current Confiteor, it was a variation of The Confiteor as prayed by the Lutherans. For this Confiteor, Blessed Mary Ever Virgin was said only Once. The names of other Intercessors, namely Saints Michael The Archangel, John The Baptist and Peter & Paul. Not only that, it wasn’t even translated properly, as I discovered on the Last Night of 2010 @ Our Lady of Mercy on Kessel Street in Forest Hills, Queens. The “Mea Culpa” had not even been translated.
The Addition of “Vos Fratres” or Brethren was actually a holdover from the Tridentine Latin Mass of The Roman Missal of 1962. But, in the interest of early Political Correctness, it became “Brothers & Sisters.”
The Kyrie was Shortened into “2, 2, 2” format. “Lord Have Mercy” was said Twice by The Priest & Twice by The Congregation. “Christ Have Mercy” was said Once by The Priest & Once by The Congregation.
The Confiteor was now a Collective Prayer. In the case of Penitential Rites B & C, The Kyrie is the base prayer.
The Introit was said.
The Format for The Readings had also changed from Introit, Epistle, Gradual, Alleluia or Tract & Gospel & Homily.
It was changed to a Three Year Cycle of Readings on Sundays & a Two Year Cycle during Weekdays.
The New Format of Readings goes as follows:
Old Testament, Responsorial Psalm, New Testament, Alleluia or Tract & then the Gospel and Homily.
This form, eliminated in the 6th Century by Pope St. Gregory The Great, was replaced by Epistle, Gradual, Alleluia or Tract, Gospel and Homily. In the older form of the Current Form, there was a Responsorial Psalm after the Epistle.
The Current Form of The Readings was eliminated from Roman/Latin Usage in the 6th Century, returned to usage with Martin Luther in the 16th Century(As well as with Thomas Cranmer), and returned to usage on Sunday, November 30th, 1969. It had been out of Roman Catholic Usage for almost 1400 Years.

This Format was suggested by Anglican “Bishop” Moremann. As Pope Leo XIII once declared Anglican Holy Orders to be Null & Void, this man is a Layman wearing a Halloween Costume(Something Gary M. Voris accuses the SSPX of being & doing).

The New Lay Ministry of Lector was promulgated for the Novus Ordo Mass. This person would read everything but The Gospel, which is charged to The Bishop, Priest and Deacon. It is said to be an old custom, but NOT in the Roman/Latin Rite. The Lector is of Byzantine Origin. The Lector usually sits in The 1st Pew, with a Light & Microphone and reads the Epistle. In most cases he or she is the Cantor. And unlike his or her Roman/Latin Rite Counterparts, he/she faces Liturgical East.

“This Is An Offertory? What?”
Consider that the Cunning, Scheming & Conniving Secular Humanist, Vincentian Father Annibale Bugnini, wanted to eliminate practically all Roman/Latin Rite References to The Mass, The Offertory was chopped to pieces.

The Tridentine Offertory was prayed by The Priest for the Expiation of His Sins and for The Faithful, both Living and Dead, with the Epiclesis being prayed For The Holy Spirit to come upon the Offerings, in anticipation of The Sacrifice. The Lavabo Prayer(Washing of Priest’s Hands) is of Byzantine Origin, used in The Preparation of The Gifts, before the Public Portion of The Divine Liturgies.
But, in order to make Modernist Mainline Protestants feel at Home, the Offertory was severely abridged. And the Source of the Format of The New Offertory is a set of Books called The Talmud, a set of Jewish Traditions, a number of which border on Immoral. Jesus and Mary are treated in a Blasphemous Manner in The Talmud.
A Prayer used in The Passover Seder, a Simple Table Blessing, is used for the Offertory. The Prayers of Expiation were removed. For Protestants, Prayers for The Dead are not their forte, as for many of them, Purgatory does not exist.

At the Orate Fratres(Pray, Brethren), in the days of Horrible Translations as if to make the Priest out to be nothing more than a group therapy leader, said In English, “Pray that Our Sacrifice”, which implied that the Congregation and Priest had the same power from God, this was corrected in the 2011 Correct Translation.

The Eucharistic Canon:
In The Tridentine Form, ONLY The Roman Canon existed. And there were The Prefacing Prayers.
What was strange for the “Translation” of “Dignum Et Justum Est”, normally reading “It Is Right & Just”, came a Variation of The Byzantine Form of the Response, which is normally translated from either the Greek or Slavonic. Bugnini was not joking when he wanted to strip The Catholic Elements out of The Mass. Thing is, he actually meant The Roman/Latin Elements. He did not hesitate to utilize Byzantine & Antiochion Elements for the New Mass.

The Sanctus was not properly translated. Sabaoth which means Hosts, became “Power & Might.”

There were initially 4 Prayers. I will stay on The Roman Canon. That ended up being abridged.
The New Prayers, in fact there are 16 of them, 17 if you count The Roman Canon having been Renovated, for The Consecration, contain The Epiclesis, which the Roman Canon does NOT have. This follows from The Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgies.
But, unlike the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgies of St. John Chrysostom & St. Basil The Great, The Epiclesis goes BEFORE The Consecration, while in the Two Divine Liturgies, the Epiclesis is after the Divine Words of Institution.
And in the Two Divine Liturgies, there is only One Anaphora or Canon. The Novus Ordo Mass has the 17 Canons.

But, unlike in the Roman Canon of The Tridentine Mass, there are portions of Prayers in Parentheses, which means that the Priest has the option not to say that portion of the Prayer. This NEVER occurred in the True Roman Canon, EVER.

It is at The Time of The Consecration in The Roman Canon in the, where things were predefined. One could say that The Canon, when offered in a low voice, provided a truly Holy Atmosphere. But when The Offertory was changed to the Passover Table Prayer, the Roman Canon became disjointed.
The Roman Canon, at The Consecration, had a change done. It is at The Time when the Wine is changed into The Blood of Christ. In The Words of Institution, the Words “Mysterium Fidei”(Mystery Of Faith) appeared, signalling that Transubstantiation has occurred.
But, what then was added, has a Byzantine-Antiochian Orientation to this with Responses which the unedited Roman Canon never had. For The Mystery Of Faith had verses from St. Paul The Apostle’s Exhortation on The Eucharist, added on, which confused the Faithful, as, while Christ is here in The Present, the Faithful were not sure that He came down into The Eucharist or that His Coming is at The End of Time.

Please note though, while taking the Cue from The Byzantine & Antiochian Rites, the Byzantine Formula is a Thanksgiving Prayer for the Sacrament. As in the Other 16 Eucharistic Prayers, the unnecessary additions continue to baffle The Faithful.
The reason I mentioned The Byzantine Rite, is that my familiarity comes from attending the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, a total of 25 Times in Ukrainian Greek Catholic Churches. If you want to meet really knowledgeable Catholics, these Catholics are up there with Tridentine Latin Mass Catholics.

Now back at the Nicene Creed, instead of the word “Credo”meaning “I Believe” it was mistranslated as “We Believe”, a Collectivization of The Prayer. That Prayer changed with the 2011 Accurate Translations.

As For Standing for Holy Communion, this came when Altar Rails were Removed so Standing, an Abuse in the Roman/Latin Rite, became the practice.

The Roman/Latin Rite was becoming anything BUT.
My Most Dear Friend, who has witnessed the Ultra Abuse of “The Liturgical Music You Could Throw Up To,”, which would be about 85% of it, which she would not get caught singing, to which I say “Bravo”(No, Not The Cable Network by that Name), asked me as to “WHY Are We Trying To Please a Bunch of Heretics”, which is what she calls Protestants & Eastern Orthodox. She sounds like the Eastern Catholics who say exactly the same thing. Facing the People during the Ordinary Form Mass is a Protestant Practice. Another thing is that the Eastern Orthodox are NOT THRILLED in the Least, with the way this version of The Mass, what with some of their practices mixed into the New Liturgy. It has

image

been said of the 4th Eucharistic Prayer that the Anaphora of St. Basil The Great, has the Epiclesis before the Consecration, not after it. I should know from having been to the Byzantine Divine Liturgies In The Catholic Church. And it was a Modernist Benedictine Monk who edited it. In fact the Epiclesis is put before the Consecration In 16 Other Eucharistic Prayers, except for The Roman Canon(Eucharistic Prayer #1), whereby in The Tridentine Mass, the Epiclesis is in the Offertory.

At Holy Communion, the Roman/Latin Tradition was to kneel and receive on the tongue.
It was an Apostate Former Dominican Priest, Martin Bucer, who also wrote the Null and Void Holy Orders for the Church of England, who believed that Holy Communion was only a Memorial Meal & NOT The Body & Blood, Soul & Divinity of Christ, Introduced Communion In The Hand, to teach the Church of England that the Bread and Wine were only a Memorial Meal, not a Sacrament.
Now with the New Mass in place, more Novelties were to be introduced. It was In the Summer of 1977, when the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, under the Leadership of Modernist Prelate, Archbishop Joseph Bernadin, who, after losing Three Rounds of Holy Communion in The Hand, resorted, as if he was Mayor Richard J Daley of Chicago in the 1960 Presidential Elections, obtained(Fraudulently)votes from Retired & Bedridden Bishops(According to Bernadin), to bring the total up to 2/3 of The US Bishops in Favor of Holy Communion in The Hand. The Vatican stated that this could only be permissible if in a particular nation, the Unlawful Practice was out of control. This was certainly not the case in the USA.
Archbishop Bernadin meets Mayor Richard J Daley. The Fish smells from the Head, downward. It was so ironic & fitting that Archbishop Joseph Bernadin was named Archbishop of Chicago, with the Title of Prince of The Church(Cardinal). Because a Lie was submitted to The Holy See, THIS practice in the USA, is like Anglican Orders, namely NULL & VOID under Liturgical Law. It did not follow the Secret Ballot as Mandated by Pope Paul VI’s Encyclical, Memoriale Domini.

All of this started in The Netherlands, Belgium, West Germany & France, near the end of Vatican II. Supposedly, The Archbishops in those nations, couldn’t control the popular outcry for Holy Communion in The Hand. Particularly, in The Netherlands & Germany, there were cries for The Church to change Her Teaching on Birth Control.
An Indult was granted, based on Memoriale Domini.
South Africa and Canada were the 1st Two Nations, in 1970, to adopt Communion In The Hand. I wonder just how many Canadians still believe in The Real Presence, Eh(This is What I get for listening to CBC Radio One Montreal or Bob & Doug Mac Kenzie on “SCTV”, Eh).

In the Interest of “Inculturation”, supposedly “Native” Customs were added to The Mass, many of them of Pagan Origin, which led to many abuses.
The USA led off with Guitar Masses with the kind of Music, all of it so syrupy(Utter Treacle, which My Most Dear Friend puts it, just enough to cause a good many people to head to Vomitariums due to Acute Stomach Upset). This graduated to adding Drums & Bad Tambourines “From The $.99 Store”(Last Line of a Hymn Parody, called “Sing A New Song Unto Oneself”). The “Clown” & “Halloween” Masses & “Liturgical Dance” Masses, are America’s “Contribution” to “Inculturation.” Let The Vomiting Begin!

BTW, Clown & Halloween Masses as well as Liturgical Dance Masses are outlawed by Canon Law, as Sacrilegious Abuses.

Extraordinary Ministers Of Holy Communion were originally intended to bring Holy Communion to The Sick & The Elderly & That Is All. Later it was expanded to when NOT enough Priests, Deacons & Instituted Acolytes were available. It was not intended for them to be a Veritable Armada when there are only 50 People at the 8AM Mass on Queens Boulevard. The Extraordinary Ministers, some of the Nicest People I have ever met, aren’t really needed at 8AM, nor at 12Noon when there are about 75 to 100 People. I think that this is being tolerated because The Faithful are in a hurry in the Morning and so are The Priests.

The Tridentine Latin Mass & The Divine Liturgies of St. John Chrysostom & St. Basil The Great, have absolutely NONE of these abuses. And Everybody Faces Liturgical East, as if Facing Jerusalem.

Perhaps, a very telling statement on all this rigmarole, came from an unlikely source.
In 1969, One of the 6 Protestant Minister Consultants, Taize Community Subprior Brother Max Thurian, a Minister of the Swiss Reformed Church, and based in France, remarked that “There is nothing in this Liturgy which will offend a Modernist Protestant.”

The “Reform Of The Reform” Proposed

Fast Forward to 1988, and not only did Br. Max Thurian come into the One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church, Brother Max was ordained a Roman Rite Priest, and now was a Roman Rite Catholic Theologian, quite a bit more orthodox in practice than many in Rome. And he had a number of questions about the current Novus Ordo Mass, of which he was a major consultant.
From the Orientation of The Priest to The Congregation, he remarked that “With Priest Celebrant facing the People, The Mass closes in on itself.”
He began to criticize the New Mass Setup. For you see, Father Thurian was no dummy. He had celebrated this Mass. He was also named by Josef Cardinal Ratzinger(Later Pope Benedict XVI) to the Pontifical Commission on The Sacred Liturgy.
Father Max Thurian had come a long way from the Time he was a Protestant Consultant.
“The Mass has lost its Character of Mystery.”
So Father Maximilian Thurian proposed that from the time of The Offertory to the close of The Eucharistic Canon, that the Priest & People be reoriented towards Liturgical Jerusalem(Liturgical East). He also remarked that The Priest and People appeared to be in mere dialogue with each other, instead of in Worship.
Something tells me that Father Max “Got It”, that The Mass is a Sacrifice & NOT a Memorial Meal. Cardinal Ratzinger, sadly, may have been the only One who knew what Father was talking about. The Rest of The Commission, ignored Father Thurian.
Father Thurian died in 1996, on The Feast Of The Assumption of The Blessed Virgin Mary in Switzerland on the day before his 75th Birthday.
Because he became a Catholic Priest, Brother Roger Schutz, The Prefect of the Taize Community, considered Father Thurian to be a Traitor, for leaving the Community of Taize.
Requiscant In Pace, Father Thurian, Amen.

It was in 1969 & 1970 that the Definition of The Mass, in the General Instruction of The Roman Missal, never mentioned the word “Sacrifice.” The Mass was given the name of “The Lord’s Supper Or Mass”, which is the name that The Archbishop of Canterbury, The Apostate Thomas Cranmer, gave his version of The Mass, replete with Freestanding Table Altar. Cranmer, like Martin Luther, went with a Table instead of a High Altar, because both lost the Truth of The Mass as Sacrifice, only becoming a Memorial Meal. Luther reputed anything to do with Oblation(Sacrifice). Cranmer said it more succinctly when he remarked that “An Altar is Made For Sacrifice, While A Table is for Preparing a Meal.” Both Cranmer & Luther were once Catholic Priests With Higher Authority. So if one reads The Definition of The Mass according to the 1970 Roman Missal, one will think that the Apostate Thomas Cranmer, wrote this definition.

In “The Ottaviani Intervention”, the New Mass in its form was(& Still Is) “A Striking Departure From The Theology of The Mass.” After going to my 1st Tridentine Latin Mass in 2007, after years of The Novus Ordo, which was a bit over 42 Years without it, I realized that the Tridentine Mass is both The Real Mass & The Intelligent Choice. It was through The Tridentine Mass that I was led to experience the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. It was at The Divine Liturgy where I recognized that One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church is Truly Universal.
According to Cardinals Ottaviani & Bacci, the New Mass would alienate the Orthodox(Especially when one of The Anaphoras, The Anaphora of St. Basil The Great, in Eucharistic Prayer #4, was butchered by a Modernist Benadictine Priest/Monk. Pope St. John Paul II was rebuffed by the Eastern Orthodox, because of The Novus Ordo Mass. Cardinals Ottaviani & Bacci hit the nail on The head with this observation.

And Pope Francis I says we must keep moving forward? To Where? Utter Oblivion?

When the Tridentine Latin Mass all but disappeared in The 1970s, the Byzantine Rite became the temporary home of many traditionalists. It is a Great thing that Blessed Paul VI said “No” to certain Latin Rite US Bishops who wanted the Eastern Catholic Churches closed so that Eastern Catholics may assimilate into the Roman Rite. I think that many Eastern Catholics would have rebelled, especially when the New Mass was promulgated. A Cantor in Holy Cross Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church despised the Guitar Music at his Mom’s Roman Rite Parish.

In regards to People presenting the Gifts of Bread & Wine to the Priests at Mass, in the name of “Active Participation”, this practice died when Religious Orders began making the Elements themselves. So WHY resurrect it?

The Offertory used to have a Sung Chant until The New Mass replaced it with an Offertory Song of the “Vomit, Barf, Puke” Modern Variety. Fortunately, at St. Agnes on East 43rd Street, a Gregorian Chant is sung by the Cantor in Latin. “Table of Plenty” by Dan Schutte would cause St. Agnes Parishioners to form a queue at the nearby Vomitarium.

The ONLY, True Participation in The Mass is To listen to The Gospel and receive The Body of Christ at Holy Communion.

As for Holy Communion under both Species in The Roman/Latin Rite, in order to cut down on the Communion In Hand Traffic, make Holy Communion to be received by Intinction. The trouble with receiving under both species is that the Ordinary Roman Rite Catholic is confused as to whether he or she received all of The Christ. In either form, one receives All of HIM, no ifs, ands or buts. Running from Communion Station to Drinking from a Common Chalice, allows potential and actual illnesses to spread.

Restore The Communion Rail in the Roman/Latin Rite. Roman Rite Catholics should kneel when receiving The Body of Christ. It is a Profound Sign of Humility & Worship. This is NOT mere bread. It Is HIM who feeds you.

Forget about Holy Communion in The Hand. By the Definition of Memoriale Domini, that permission or Indult, passed by the US Bishops, is actually invalid, due to the actions of Archbishop(Cardinal) Bernadin, counting supposed Telephone Ballots. No Good!

Like My Most Dear Friend has said to me:
“WHY are We Kowtowing To Heretics?”

And You Wonder WHY The Vatican II Church is in the Massive Mess it is in today.

<, While The “Bride Of Christ” is NOT Wounded., with this Liturgy drawn up to please such Rationalists as are Mainline Protestants who DENY The Sacrifice Of The Mass, It is Wounding The Christ Himself by Worship of Humanity, Truly a Grave Violation of The 1st Commandment.

Kyrie Elaison!
