I Don’t Recognize Ordinary Time As Catholic

11 Jan

For One Should see the Real Roman Latin Mass Calendar & realise that we are still in The Christmas Cycle.
Wednesday Is Still Baptism Of The Lord & that there are Sundays After Epiphany until Septuagesima Sunday on 01/31/2016, with the Final Christmas Cycle day of February 2nd, The Presentation of The Child Jesus In The Temple.

WE ARE ROMAN/LATIN RITE Catholics, NOT Presbyterians.

The Novus Ordo Mass Calendar Is

11 Jan

Reformed Protestant in Style, except for all The Added Saints.

The Presbyterian Style is where the term “Ordinary Time” comes from. From the Sunday after The Transferred Celebration of Epiphany, called “Baptism Of The Lord”, which is the End of The Octave of Epiphany(On The Tridentine Mass Calendar, Epiphany is still January 6th & Baptism Of The Lord is still January 13th), the 1st Sunday After Epiphany used to be Feast Of The Holy Family, and the Last Day of The Christmas Cycle(Tridentine) is Candlemas Day-The Feast Of The Presentation of The Child Jesus In The Temple.
But, in the Interest of The False Ecumenism, there is a Table where the Priest has his back turned away from God, toward the Congregation, and Ordinary Time.

Funny, but The Anglican Communion, The Lutheran Communion & The Methodist Communities all have Advent, Christmastide, Epiphany, Time After Epiphany, & Time After Pentecost, so the Cycles come together, Both Christmas & Easter. Instead the Roman/Latin Rite tries to be something it isn’t & that is all Flavors of Heretical Protestant.
And most Novus Ordo Catholics think Protestant Style. And the Catechisis is AWFUL.

The Next Neo Catholic Polemicist who says that Vatican II has nothing to do with the Novus Ordo Mass, will be relieved of his hairpiece.
Capice?

My Absence From The Novus Ordo Mass & Reason For It

30 Oct

Forget the “Four Hymn Sandwich”, which includes Muzak which is merely a Tribute to MAN(With The Possibility of Long Lines in a VOMITARIUM, with Parish Waiting Times Varying). Forget that the Priest is treated as a mere “Master Of Ceremonies”, or “Assembly President.” The Mass is NOT MERELY “A Sacred Meeting.”
It is NOT “For Mere Spiritual Eating.” With The Priest facing the People, The Mass closes in on Itself, as if MAN is The Object of Worship, instead of GOD.

This Rendition of The Sacred Liturgy is geared towards MAN, with GOD “In The Background.”
This Rendition of The Sacred Liturgy, does not present THE DOCTRINE Of The Mass, to make Reparation for our Sins, with The Priest, “In Persona Christi”, offering Sacrifice to God The Father, as “Another Christ”(Alter Christus).
If One owns an Old Roman Missal, one then owns a True, Catholic Treasure. In what is the Current Version of The Offertory, it is MERELY a Passover Table Blessing, one not of Making Reparation for Sin. The Novus Ordo Mass does present Offering, but NOT as Sacrifice For The Remission of Sins of The Priest & Faithful, both Living & Dead. The Apostate Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer, said of The Table as opposed to The High Altar, “A Table Is For Preparing & Serving a Meal, While an Altar is For Sacrifice.”
Apostate Augustinian Archabbot Martin Luther, complained that “The Mass Stinks of Oblation” & proceeded to eliminate the Offending Offertory, which was offered For The Remission of Sins, making Satisfaction to God The Father, in Adoration of The Blessed Trinity.
For Luther & Cranmer, Sacrifice was Repugnant to Both of Them. Both taught the PROTESTANT HERESY of “Universal Salvation”, a Heresy CONDEMNED by The Popes, especially before The Second Vatican Ecumenical Council. To Luther & Cranmer, Prayers For The Dead are “Romish”, with their Version of Scripture, denying the Catholic Doctrine Of Purgatory, which doesn’t exist according to these “Revolutionaries”, & I emphasize “REVOLUTIONARIES”, because they rebelled due to The Sin Of Pride, Against The One, True Church, The One Ordained By Christ as His Holy Bride.
For these Revolutionaries, there is NO Sacred Priesthood, since The Priesthood stands for SACRIFICE.
Rather, in WHAT amounts to, in Reality, the Utter Denial Of The Social Kingship Of Christ The King & of HIS Apostles, it is the Priesthood of The Laity, with a Presiding Minister, “A Little More Man Than The Rest”, who worship God, though NOT in The ONE, TRUE CHURCH, but in an “Ecclesiastical Community”, which is Truly NOT The Church Ordained By Christ. 40K Ecclesiastical Communities Later, I believe that one “Gets The Picture”, of “The Brotherhood Of Man”, as opposed to “The Fatherhood Of God.”

So, WHY are we Imitating Heretics in Our Most Sublime Worship?

Fortunately, The Tridentine Latin Mass has been freed from the Bondage of Conferences of Roman/Latin Rite Catholic Bishops, who spent their time suppressing what works & going with “The Primacy Of MAN”, rather than “Of God.” Just look at the Desolation with Closed Parish Churches & Closed Parish Catholic Schools. I believe that one “Gets The Drift.”
Go to The Tridentine Latin Mass. You will find “WHAT IS TRULY CATHOLIC” in The Roman/Latin Rite. If that Mass is not close to where you live, but have an Eastern Catholic Church near you, The Sacrifice Is Offered To God, NOT Man, Hence, One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church.

Vivat Christus Rex!

The Mass Of The Glory Of MAN-Novus Ordo

27 Jun

The “Community of Believers At An Assembly” versus “The Sacrifice and The Social Kingship Of Christ.”

If one can look back to the Mid 1970s, with the Tabernacle disappearing from the Old, High Altar, there was a Replacement. It was in the form of Three Chairs, with the Highest Chair reserved to ” The Presider” of the New Order of The Mass.

The Alignment of the insides of Post 1970s Catholic Churches, were aligned in order to make welcome those Rationalists, commonly called Protestants, to an atmosphere familiar to them.

Three Chairs and A Table is an alignment which is most comforting to those who do not believe in the Unbloody Sacrifice of Christ, but, rather, since these Rationalists deny Sacrifice, it reminds them of whom they offer their Platitudes.
The Highest Chair is for the Priest who is now treated as a Delegate of The Assembly. On his right and left would be Deacons.
But THIS Alignment is familiar to the Rationalist Protestants(As Well as to the Many Jews who belong to it), as it is the Alignment of The Religion of MAN called Freemasonry, where the Social Kingship Of Christ The King is on a par with the Pagan Demons.
For in the Chair of the Presider is one called The Worshipful Master, with Senior and Junior Deacons on his right and left. The Table of what is called the Altar in the Novus Ordo Mass, is also the Altar in Freemasonry, where the Volume of Sacred Law from any of the Three Monotheistic Religions is placed.
Hence, “The Community of Believers” is into attending a Sacred Assembly Meeting, often to tell God just how great the Community is.

And it is reflected in the Syrupy Liturgical “Muzak”, being offered to “The Deity Called SELF.”

The Author of This Tribute of SELF in what is called the Novus Ordo Mass, reputedly was a Freemason, who worked with other “Rationalists”(Protestants).

And we pray like Rationalizing Protestants.

And The Modern Catholics of Roman Rite, look at Holy Communion as a ” Meal”, as if they are Protestant Rationalists.

Liberalism Is Error, is Modernism and is Sin.

And the Churches are empty.

Why A Protestant Version Of Sunday Readings

7 Jun

According to The Roman Rite Mass in 400 AD, the Readings were Old Testament, Responsorial Psalm, Epistle, Responsorial Psalm, Alleluia or Tract and Gospel.
But, when Pope St. Gregory The Great did liturgical reform at the end of the 6th Century, he copied from the Greek Liturgy and followed with Epistle, Gradual, Alleluia or Tract and Gospel.
The Format was Dead until the 16th Century when Luther and Cranmer began to use the Discarded Form, without the extra Responsorial Psalm Format.
He Wanted People to listen to The Word and be awake for it, and for The Sacrifice of The Mass.
Good Change!

Luther and Cranmer, both of them Heretics and Apostates because of their change in belief in the Holy Eucharist and the Sacred, Sacrificing Priesthood, believed in Extra Readings of Scripture in their Liturgies, so they went with a format discarded some 900 Years before, minus the extra rounds of Responsorial Psalms between the Epistle and Gospel.

Fast Forward to Sunday, November 30th, 1969 and the official excuse given was that extra scripture is good. But the Protestants at the same time, reject the Sacraficial Priesthood and Transubstantiation in regards to The Eucharist.
I recall being at a Byzantine Ukrainian Catholic Divine Liturgy the day before and the whole Gospel Passage was proclaimed. The Next Day, same Gospel Passage was read but it was an “Omit Parts In Brackets” reading at a Novus Ordo Mass. This was almost two years ago. So much for more scripture! This Format was done in the Name of Ecumenism(False of course).

This Format Change was suggested by an Anglican “Bishop”, whose Holy Orders were declared by Pope Leo XIII, to be as valid as a $200 Transportation Pass on the Staten Island Ferry(NOT).

More Novelties To Come!

Tradwriter 27: Inculturation: Isn’t it great?

18 May

“Inculturation”, a Vatican II Term of of The Modernist ” Novelty Experts”, who could write comedy for the US Television Networks but not Liturgy, is the adding of Regional Customs to the Liturgy. Often it entails Pagan Customs such as Smoking a Peace Pipe or some Native Dance.

Imagine Polynesian Dancers for a Polynesian Mass. Dancing is prohibited under Liturgical Law. In the R C Archdiocese of Buenas Aires, Argentina, the Metropolitan of The Nation authorized a “Pinocchio Mass” for the young people(I wonder if Gary M. Voris will deny this). This Mass had Disney Characters at that Mass, held in a Futbol Stadium.(Note that this Archbishop’s Family Name is Bergoglio & the Video is on You Tube).
Instead of calling the current Mass the New Mass or New Order of Mass(Novus Ordo Missa), a number of Traditionalists call this the NO Mass. NO simply means Novus Ordo and one group even has a battle cry of “No NO.”
Another name which is appropriate for the NO Mass is NOAM(No Order At Mass). Noam is a Jewish Male name and pronounced “No Ahm”. NOAM will be pronounced the same way.
The Halloween & Clown Masses are basically Low Grade Entertainments, with a NO Mass in the Middle of the Theme. Not only that, they are Blasphemous Liturgies, often using Illicit Bread, such as Doritos Chips or in the case of one Clown Liturgy, Pizza Bread(It is in photos on the web).
One Priest in the Diocese of Orange County, California, donned a ” Barney The Dinosaur ” Costume and offered Mass(On You Tube).
If I want a Cabaret Act, I will head to a Club in Astoria, Queens or Williamsburg, Brooklyn. If I want Clowns, I will head to a Circus.
Someone dressed as “Dracula” should NOT be proclaiming The Epistle. The So Called “Ordinary Form of Mass”, written to make PROTESTANTS(Heretics)feel at Home, with an ” Offertory” which is NOT in the Least Bit the Propitiary Sacrifice, where the Priest offers Prayers for his sins and the sins of the Faithful, while offering the Hostia (Victim) to God The Father.
An “Offertory” Prayer in the NO Mass, written not to offend people who look at The Eucharist as a “Memorial Meal”, comes from The Talmud, which Blasphemes BOTH Jesus and The Blessed Virgin Mary.
Like WHAT Flavor of Hashish were these ” Liturgical Reformers” smoking?
I don’t think that the NO Mass is bringing in The Faithful. The Music, by and large, is the type which leads to Long Lines in Toilets, where much Vomiting occurs. The “Reformers” may claim that Psalms are being sung, but WHY are these Psalms always geared towards MAN? If “On Eagles Wings” is ANY Indication, we will have sung this song, based on Psalms, merely for our SELF Edification, not for worshipping God In Three Persons.

As far as the NO Mass is concerned, I agree wholeheartedly with Louie Verrecchio, Michael Matt, Christopher Ferrara & John Vennari, it is time to END this hideous experiment. Say “No” to “The NO.”
Return to the Tridentine Form of the Mass to reorient the Faithful, with some Latin added gradually. Return to the One Year Cycle of Readings, as it is in both the Tridentine Latin Mass & Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgies of St. John Chrysostom & St. Basil The Great.
No Girls as Altar Servers, as they cannot be ordained as Priests. This Mass prohibits Holy Communion A Mano(In The Hand). The Priest should pray Silently at the Offertory and at The Canon of The Mass. Kneeling at The Altar Rail should also return.

Junk The NO Mass, which has NOT worked since November 30th, 1969.

The Return of The Faith, demands it.

After Traditional Catholic Liturgies, This Felt Strange

15 May

I was at the Vigil Mass for Ascension Thursday at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs(Ascan Avenue and Queens Boulevard in the Forest Hills Section of Queens). I will state this in this way:
For all of the Eastertide Catholic Sunday Masses in both the Tridentine Latin Masses & Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgies of St. John Chrysostom, where the Priests face “Liturgical East”, practicing like the Congregations ” Ad Orientem “, I found myself in ” Novus Ordo Land” with the Priest offering The Sacrifice while facing the Congregation, with the practice of “Versus Populum”.

Last Year, the crowd was substantial. This year, it was not as large. It is as if People are forgetting about Ascension Thursday, as many parts of the USA are transferring this Ancient and Venerable Feast to the Following Sunday. NOT GOOD!
There appears to be something wrong with the Organ in the Choir Loft. There was even a ” Byzantine Rite Moment” where the Organ malfunctioned for a moment, while the Litanies of Supplication were being prayed(Prayers of The Faithful). The Cantor sang a Litany unaccompanied by the Organist. To compare this moment to the Litany in a Byzantine Divine Liturgy, actually either the Priest or Deacon sings the Chanted Prayer, and the Cantor sings the response. In the case at the Mass of Holy Thursday Vigil, Veteran Cantor Joseph Annese, sang the Litany, then led everyone in the response, Joe could do the singing at a Divine Liturgy quite well.
All of the Hymns were Traditional, Pre Vatican II and were singable. The Classic, “O Jesus We Adore Thee”, was the Communion Hymn. It sings of Adoring Jesus in The Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. It is NOT a modernistic, False Ecumenical ” Bread Song.” This is NOT a Hymn which can be sung by Protestants. It is a CATHOLIC Hymn.
I have, however, found that I am much more comfortable with the Priest facing East than I am with the Priest facing the Congregation. Since Protestants either believe in either a Truncated Belief in The Holy Eucharist or no belief in it at
all, THAT is WHY they endorse “Versus Populum.”
We Catholics of The Roman Rite have the TRUE EUCHARIST and belong to the TRUE CHURCH, Ordained by Christ Himself. We must return to “Ad Orientem”, to give Thanks to The Triune God, ” For His Great Glory.”

Otherwise, we appear to be giving that “Great Glory”, sadly, to Ourselves instead of Our Creator, God.

Name One Thing you have Created ” Out of Nothing.”

Kyrie Elaison!

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!

Michael Voris Fails To Mention(With Mens Rea)

15 Feb

As Native New Yorker & Fordham University Graduate, Christopher A. Ferrara, JD, would say in response to the Nonsensical Utterances of Both Pope Francis I and Michael Voris, STB, it is THIS:
“Really” or “Seriously”.

Michael Voris is a Polemicist, hosting Catholic Programming on Church Millitant.tv.
He did a show in his series “Mic’d Up”, not to be confused with Sports Radio 660AM & 101.9FM, WFAN in Lower Manhattan, where another Mike, Sarcastically called “The Sports Pope”, last name of Francessa, hosts “Mike’d Up”, where callers to that show, have all of the Intelligence of a Carrot.
Unlike on WFAN, Michael Voris’ callers actually discuss more intelligent things than what passes for conversation on “The ‘FAN.” Alex Rodriguez(A-Roid) is Not a topic of conversation on Church Millitant.tv.

Mark Shea grew up an Evangelical Protestant and is Neo Catholic. Perhaps, he is influenced by the Likes of Dr Scott Hahn, who like Mark Shea, also grew up Protestant.
Now, in spots, Michael Voris sounds like he might be a Catholic Traditionalist. But when the Subject is Criticism of The Pope, it is as if The Pope cannot do Wrong.
Michael Matt, Editor of “The Remnant Newspaper”, a Catholic Weekly which roots are in “The Wanderer Newspaper”, and spun off from it, has a video series of Traditional Catholicism called “The Remnant Forum”, seen on You Tube and on The pages of The Remnant Newspaper. His shows, often featuring Christopher A. Ferrara as a Commentator, are rousing sessions on the State of The Catholic Church.  Michael Matt, like Michael Voris, has a substantial audience, but unlike “The Vortex”, where Michael Voris is “Trapped and Exposed”, Michael Matt actually pulls no punches in regards to the Statements made by Pope Francis I, as well as the questionable actions of this pontificate. Voris, on the other hand, prefers to rip Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan “A New One”, it seems, every chance Michael Voris gets, though Voris is usually correct in his assessment of Cardinal Dolan.
For in watching “Modernist Maniacs…”, a viewer sent a link from Michael Voris’ show on CMTV, which was shown by Michael Matt on The Remnant Forum.
In that edition of “Mic’d Up”, Voris introduced one of his correspondents, a Young Adult Male named Vincent Coleman, who introduced the Audience to 2 Sources of The Catholic Counter Revolution in Print and one Known Writer whom I have admired, Deitricht Von Hillebrand, as if these are the only people responsible for the return of the Tridentine Latin Mass to any prominence in the Roman Rite of One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church. I knew about The Wanderer, though they did give endorsement to the Reforms(Innovations)of Vatican II. A Canadian Newsweekly, The Interim, both Pro Life and Pro Family, I did not know about.
But,  WHAT HAPPENED TO A MENTION OF ARCHBP MARCEL LEFEBVRE, who was at The Second Vatican Council, who foresaw the Problems of a Revised Roman Rite Catholic Liturgy and with the use of Vernacular instead of the Precision of Latin, which the Tridentine Latin Mass is noted for. The Protestantising of the Mass, where there is little distinction between the Priest and People and bad vernacularising, made people wonder if The Mass is still Catholic. The Roman Rite, once so distinct in The Mass, with kneeling at a Holy Communion Rail, became a Polyglot of Protestant and Eastern Catholic Practices.
Another who saw this problem was a Welsh Convert named Michael Davies, who came to The Roman Rite Church in 1954. His Reaction to the Missa Novus Ordo was “I never thought that I would see the return of Cranmer’s Table.” Thomas Cranmer, Protestant Archbishop of Canterbury, saw the Mass to be nothing more than a Blessed Memorial Meal instead of Remembrance of The Sacrifice Of Mount Calvary, where Christ died on The Cross Of Redemption. The Congregation was seen as The Priesthood of The Laity, with the Priest being seen as President Of The Assembly. It was as if the Bread and Wine were nothing more than what the Eastern Churches, both Catholic and Orthodox, call Antidoron(Blessed Bread Instead Of The Gifts). Cranmer was heard to have said “An Altar is for Sacrifice, While A Table is Where a Meal is to be served.” The Practice of Holy Communion A Mano(in one’s hand) was brought to The Church Of England by an Apostate Dominican Order Priest from Germany named Martin Bucer, who lost his belief in The Corporeal and Sanguine Real Presence of Christ. The Purpose of Communion A Mano was to teach the English that this is a Simple Memorial Meal and. NOT a Sacrifice. This fit in with the Protestant Revolution.
When Queen Mary came to the English Throne, Catholicism was restored and Cranmer was burned at the Stake for Heresy.
Michael Davies spoke out passionately for the Tridentine Latin Mass, where there are no such profanations as Clown Masses, The Pinocchio Mass For Children in Buenos Aires(It is on You Tube), novelties such as Female Altar Servers, Communion A Mano, Liturgical Dancers and Liturgical Music which is capable of causing Tearful Jags, Profane Language, Headaches and Nausea and, more often than not, unsingable.
And Michael Davies is IGNORED BY YOU?
Archbishop LEFEBVRE is somehow ignored in all this. Is this something in connection with the Priestly Society of Saint Pius X? Archbishop Marcel LEFEBVRE was way ahead of the curve on the New Mass. I knew that Something was rather amiss when “Et Cum Spiritu Tuo”, was mistranslated as “And Also With You”, leaving out the Spiritual Element in regards to The Priest, who acts “In Persona Christi”, when offering Christ’s Sacrifice to His Heavenly Father as “Alter Christus”(Another Christ). Then again, the New Form of Mass is officially called “The Lord’s Supper or Mass”, in the interests of The New Ecumenism and dialogue with Protestants, instead of The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass, as Protestants do not believe in Sacrifice. Archbishop LEFEBVRE saw the problem of Belief In The Real Presence of Christ in The Eucharist taking a tumble downward.
And when Holy Communion A Mano which is a Sacriligious Novelty, which began as an Act of Utter Disobedience after the Conclusion of the Second Vatican Council, that eventually led to a decrease in the Corporeal Real Presence of Christ In The Eucharist. A Majority of Catholics where this practice is offered, due to Bad teaching of Doctrine, no longer believe in the Catholic Definition of The Eucharist.
Archbishop LEFEBVRE saw this coming and fought to keep the Tridentine Latin Mass Alive.

And all that Michael Voris can manage is mentions of an obscure newsweekly in Canada and The Wanderer in the USA?

Does that make me, like Michael Matt, Christopher Ferrara, John Vennari, a “Hard Sedevacantist”, especially in asking questions about the Current Pontiff you people at Church Millitant.tv, are so silent about? Why The Unmitigated Silence about the Utter Persecution of The Franciscan Friars of The Immaculate?
And don’t tell me that every off the wall comment coming from the current Pontiff is a Bad Translation. Besides, Christopher Ferrara speaks, reads and writes in Italian, Fluently. And the next time you rip Cardinal Dolan “A New One”, he is only following the orders of his Boss in Rome.

Kyrie Elaison!

M, Eh!

The Novus Ordo Liturgical Critique

11 Dec

One could say about the Ordinary Form of Mass is that it is too lean in the way of Ceremony, often ruined by inappropriate Music and less than a worshipful atmosphere by having the Congregation in a state of having to make noise, constantly, in the Name of “Active Participation.”

Like a beer called Miller Lite, the Ordinary Form Mass is “Less Filling”, but unlike Miller Lite, it doesn’t really “Taste Great.” Let me explain what I mean.

On Sunday, November 30th, 1969, a New Mass, which used a Portable Altar, where the Priest offered the Mass, no longer faced Liturgical East, but now turned 180° to Liturgical West. There was something strange when the Translation from the Latin “Et Cum Spiritu Tuo” to English, was “And Also With You”, meaning that respect for the Sacred, Sacrificial Priesthood went “South”. The Priest was essentially reduced to a mere “Master of Ceremonies”.
The Beautiful Prayers at The Foot of The Altar, went the way of Ford Motor Company’s Edsel. The Opening of The Mass was expropriated from the Byzantine Divine Liturgies of St Basil The Great and St John Chrysostom, which I had begun to Notice from having participated in a good # of the Byzantine Divine Liturgies. The Mass was as if it wasn’t the Roman Rite at all, anymore.
The “Confiteor” was abridged, eliminating the double mentions of Blessed Mary Ever Virgin, though Mary retained One Mention, but “Vos Fratres” got two mentions. The Double Confiteor, with one by The Priest, simply became a Collective Confiteor. The mentions of St. Michael The Archangel, The Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and St. John The Baptist, were eliminated entirely. This is an example of a “Catholic Lite” Liturgy, but “Less Roman Catholic.”
The Confiteor became one of a number of options.
The Kyrie Litany was cut down by 3 Responses.
The Gloria was only for Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation and certain feasts.
The Introit was retained. Then the Readings followed. But, it was to follow a 3 Year Cycle on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation, while the Weekdays follow a 2 Year Cycle. The Readings Format follows a Common Protestant Lectionary of Readings. This is used by the Anglicans of Broad Church Practice. The Evangelical Lutheran Communities use this as well. It goes as follows:
Old Testament or Apocalypse;
Responsorial Psalm;
New Testament(Epistle);
Alleluia(Tract in Lent);
Gospel;
Homily. The flavor here is decidedly Protestant.

The Nicene Creed is only on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation. But, before the Proper Latin to English Translation of 2011, the English read “We Believe”, but “Credo” means “I Believe.”
Then the General Intercessions/Prayers of The Faithful are recited or chanted. They are based on the Great Litany Chant in the Byzantine Divine Liturgies. In a # of cases, The actual chant itself is used in these Prayers. The response is either “Deus Exaudinos” or “Kyrie Elaison” in vernacular.

Now, according to the General Instruction of The 1970 Roman Missal, the Tabernacle was to be displayed in a Prominent Place, or Chapel, but not on the Altar of Offering. Many of The Churches built had a Protestant Look and Feel to them. With the Priest facing the Congregation, this was NOT “The Mass of All Time.”

With a stripped down Offertory Prayer, which spoke of a Passover Table Blessing but not of Sacrifice, drawn from The Talmud, the Book of Jewish Traditions, the Mass was now “Less Roman Rite” and more of everyone else’s Traditions. In the case of The Scripture Readings, which came in Practice from Mainline Protestant Communities, it was reported that this was last done in the 6th Century, and replaced by Pope St Gregory The Great, with Epistle, Gradual, Alleluia(Tract), Gospel and Homily, following the Byzantine Form and was retained in the Tridentine Latin Mass.

The Presentation of The Gifts was abandoned in the 13th Century because this Presentation was that of members of The Congregation who made the Bread and Wine.
Yet this Presentation came to life in 1969, though it was just moving Bread and Wine from one table to another. Why? To encourage Lay Participation in the Liturgy. It is a Novelty with no particular purpose.
At the Offertory, there used to be an Offertory Chant sung before the Offertory. It was replaced by Modernist Music of Self Praise. Most Mass Music is that way currently.

The Sign of Peace is Antiochian Rite Practice from the Maronite Catholic Church, in full Communion with The Holy See.
It should have remained there and not come to the Roman Rite, making for another novelty. This is truly the Destruction of The Roman Rite.

Standing for Holy Communion is Byzantine Rite. The Roman Rite Practice of Kneeling(Unless you are blessed to be at St. Agnes on East 43rd Street(Venerable Archbishop Fulton J Sheen Place), is all but lost in the Ordinary Form Mass. Holy Communion In The Hand, a Protestant Practice, is nauseatingly common. Holy Communion Under Both Species, an Eastern Catholic and Orthodox Practice, should be done by Intinction, not by traveling from one Holy Communion Minister to another. Often one of those Ministers is neither a Priest nor Deacon, but a lay person called an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, who in the Early Church and in the current era, brings the Sacrament to The Sick. Today, in addition to bringing Holy Communion to the Sick, is asked to distribute Holy Communion at Mass. An ancient practice became a Modern Novelty.
Readings of the Scripture except the Gospel by Laity is a Byzantine Rite Practice, but in the Byzantine Rite, the Lector never enters the Sanctuary, but is seated in the Nave and reads the Epistle. Only in the New Mass do lectors read in The Sanctuary, and only in the Roman Rite(If you can STILL call it that).

The Last Gospel(The Incarnation) was eliminated.
So much Self Centred Music is sung and not to God, but to Each Other.
Gregorian Chant is Rare(Unless James D. Wetzel is Music Director and you are on East 43rd Street(Venerable Archbishop Fulton J Sheen Place)).

Christ told Peter to “Feed My Sheep.” The Ordinary Form Mass causes Hunger Pangs for The True Church in the Roman Rite. People seek to worship The Triune Godhead, looking for the “Other Worldly” & not the Worldly. They don’t want to be distracted.

If only there was no Vatican II, there might not have been the Disaster occurring Today. Liturgy in the Roman Rite is saved in the Tridentine Latin Mass. If the Gregorian Chant and Kneeling for Holy Communion, reception of it on the Tongue was maintained, the Ordinary Form Mass might be a success. But True Tradition was not followed. And one leaves Famished and Thirsting. Liturgy must grow organically and not by Committee. Novelty wears thin after awhile.
Since I returned to the Tridentine Latin Mass, plus the addition of The Byzantine Catholic Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom, I know that I am truly nourished by God. The same can be said for a Solemn and Beautiful Ordinary Form Mass(Like at East 43rd Street, between Lexington and 3rd Avenues in Midtown Manhattan). The abuses of The Ordinary Form Mass, detract from giving proper Worship of The Triune Godhead.

The Ordinary Form Mass can feed the People more than meets the eye. Just keep the Liturgical “Experts”, who are nothing more than experts in entertainment, far away.

Then, Christ’s Flock will be fed and fed well.

Deo Gratias !
