The Tridentine Latin Mass Of 1962 & The Novus Ordo Mass Of 1970

24 Sep

It was in The Roman Missal of 1962, when certain changes were made. One was when, before the Confiteor of The Priest, the “Judica Me Deus”(Judge Me O God), was eliminated.
There was still the Confiteor of both Priest & then the Servers and Parishioners. The Priest gave absolution. In his Confiteor, he asked his Servers for Forgiveness.
But, in both recitations “Et Tibi Pater” & “Et Te Pater” were replaced by “Et Vos Fratres”(And You Brethren), while Et Te Pater & Et Tibi Pater, referred to The Priest, acting “In Persona Christi”, offering Sacrifice To The Heavenly Father, as “Alter Christus”(Another Christ).
In The Roman Canon, St. Joseph was added to The Canon of Saints.
The Confiteor before Holy Communion was eliminated.
In 1964, people were now to acknowledge the Body of Christ by responding with Amen, after the Priest says “Corpus Christi.” Prior to this, when one received Holy Communion, the Priest recited in Latin “May The Body Of Christ Be Given To You For Life Everlasting Amen”, and the Priest Made the Sign of The Cross with the Consecrated Host. There was no actual response from the Communicant. A Gold Plated Paten was placed under the chin of one receiving Holy Communion by the Altar Server.
Now, when the Priest was to receive Holy Communion, he prayed “Domine Non Sum Dignus”(O Lord I Am NOT Worthy)3 Times & a bell was rung by an Altar Server after each praying. Prior to Holy Communion, the Communicants prayed the “Domine Non Sum Dignus”, 3 Times.
The Kyrie Elaison(Lord Have Mercy) had 5 Recitations by The Priest & 4 by the Servers and Parishioners(3 Kyrie Elaison, 3 Christe Elaison, 3 Kyrie Elaison).

Other Additions to the 1962 Roman Missal included the “Prayers Of The Faithful”, a variation of the Litanies of The Byzantine Rite, for Sundays & Holy Days of Obligation & the OPTIONAL Sign of Peace. This was added for Mass Of The Tridentine Form starting on Sunday, November 29th, 1964, the 1st Sunday of Advent.

In regards to The Prayer of The Faithful, I will say it this way-The Ukrainian Greek Catholics at the Divine Liturgies of Sts John Chrysostom & Basil The Great, are much better at this form, as The Litanies are sung A Capella & Without Musical Instruments, so forget about the Guitars common at “Folk” Masses of The Novus Ordo Mass Era.

It was in Liturgical Year 1967, around November in Brooklyn, in the Fully Vernacularized Tridentine Form of Mass, when Priests tried to sound like Beatniks & “Folk Style Treacle” Muzak came to The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass. There was also the so called, in the Spirit of The False Ecumenism setting in, the Mistranslation of The Latin Phrase “Pro Multis”, into “For All Men”, instead of “For Many”, as “For All Men”, which signifies the Protestant Heresy of Universal Salvation. It was near the end of Vatican II that the 1st Permissions were given that the Utterly Bad Idea of The Portable Table Altar, for the Tridentine Form of Mass, were authorized. Only the More Progressive Parishes had this Table Altar, beginning with 1965.

“For All Men” gave rise to both the Traditionalist Catholic Movement in 1967, and, Sadly, The Sedevacantist Movement(The Teaching that there had been no Validly Elected Pope after the Death of Venerable Pope Pius XII & that from Pope John XXIII onward, there were all Antipopes seated in The See of Peter).

Also in The 1962 Missal was the Change in the Names of The Parts of The Mass. The Part called “Mass Of The Catechumens”(Those undergoing Religious Instruction), this became “Liturgy Of The Word”, as it was more “Protestant Friendly.” Then there was “Liturgy Of The Eucharist”, replacing “Mass of The Faithful.” This is only in the Latin(Roman) Rite. This was added in time for the Liturgical Year of 1965.

Oh & Another Thing:
Boys and Men ONLY as Altar Servers, was done because in much older times, servers were often ordained as Priests when the Priest retired or died.

As to the Novus Ordo Missae:
There is So Much MISSING from what is The Tridentine Latin Mass in the Novus Ordo Mass, like the Theology of The Mass.
Also, this version of the Mass incorporated Liturgical Abuses from both the US of A & Der Nederlands.

The Novus Ordo Mass incorporates the US of A Abuse called “The Presentation of The Gifts”, where two people bring up the Elements of Unleavened Bread & Wine. This was tried in Boston under Archbishop Richard Cushing. An Ad Populum Tridentine Latin Mass was done in North Dakota. Venerable Pope Pius XII ruled these practices as abuses & condemned these US Practices.
The General Intercessions Prayers of the Faithful went to be an Everyday Practice at Mass. It is based on the Litanies of the Byzantine Rite in the Divine Liturgies of Sts John Chrysostom and Basil The Great. Trust me on this one-The Eastern Catholic Churches & Eastern Orthodox Churches of Byzantine Rite, do this way better than the Roman Rite Catholic Church does. While Not an abuse, it was added to keep something Catholic in the Novus Missae.
The Collective Confiteor, without the Intercessions of Sts Michael The Archangel, John The Baptist, Peter & Paul & only one Intercession of Blessed Mary Ever Virgin. In the Confiteor of the Tridentine Latin Mass, which the Priest says 1st, then the Congregation’s Confiteor, each Saint mentioned twice, ended up as 1 Mention of the Blessed Virgin May & two Intercessions of “The Brethren.” This Collective Confiteor is one of a number of Penitential Options & has for its basis, The Lutheran Confiteor and the Anglican Confiteor, but neither mentions the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The Sign of Peace(Or The Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs Wave, seen every day of the week), is said to have come from the Antiochean Rite Maronite Catholic Church. Only The Servers come out from the Sanctuary & shake the hand of the 1st One in the Pew & it is transmitted down the length of the Pew. It was added to the 1962 Missal in 1964. It is only an option. It is a Distraction from The Mass. It made the cut in the Novus Ordo Mass.

Sancte Communion A Mano(In The Hand):
This Grave Abuse came into being during the Protestant Heresy called “The Reformation”, when it was simply a Huge Schism. Martin Bucer, an Apostate Priest of The Order of Preachers of St. Dominic, lost his belief in the Corporeal & Substantial Real Presense of Christ &, in acting as Advisor to Archbishop of Canterbury, The Heretic Thomas Cranmer, introduced Communion A Mano(In The Hand), to teach those of The Church Of England, that no such Real Presence exists. It was 1st practiced before Vatican II ended in Der Nederlands, to protest that The Catholic Church did not change her teachings on Contraception. From this country came the Infamous “Dutch Catechism”, deemed to teach Heresy.
Memoriale Domini, an Encyclical by Blessed Paul VI, addressed Holy Communion In The Hand.

In Canada, this practice arrived in Early 1970, being permitted by meeting the conditions of Memoriale Domini, which means that the Abuse was widespread & that the Conference Of Catholic Bishops in that Nation petitioned The Holy See, after a 2/3 Majority of Bishops By Secret Ballot, concurred.

From 1975 through 1977, the US Conference Of Catholic Bishops, then called the NCCB, was headed by The Archbishop of Cincinnati, OH, Joseph Bernadin, who led the Liberal & Homosexual Wings of The Roman Latin Church. At all three National Meetings of this August Body(Or Hapless Bench) of Bishops in 1975-1977, the motion to promulgate Holy Communion In The Hand fell short of the 2/3 Super Majority. But, Bernadin disobeyed the Papal Edict, and added voters via Telephone and also those Who were Emeriti to the figures, thus having this passed. The Indult was passed but is actually Null and Void, due to the Circumstances on How Archbishop Bernadin effected this practice, which was NEVER widespread in the USA. In short, the Practice in the United States Of America, was born of a Lie, thus NEVER VALID, EVER.

Standing to receive Holy Communion In The Roman Latin Rite:
Never Mind that it is a Byzantine Rite Practice, not done well by The Roman Latin Church, that the US Conference Of Catholic Bishops decided to add a Byzantine Rite Practice of Bowing to add a semblance of Eucharistic Piety to receiving Holy Communion, mostly in the Hand. I know of a few Ukrainian Greek Catholics who would beg to differ in regards to Roman Rite Catholics who receive Holy Communion In The Hand. This is SO Novus Ordo.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion:
Originally meant to bring Holy Communion To The Sick Shut In Catholics in their homes and Nursing Facilities, they have become an Armada at Holy Communion Time, supposedly because the Priest and Deacon Communion Lines are too long. These People did not receive Holy Orders. Plus in the Artificially Contrived Priest Shortage thanks to Heterodox Bishops and Priests, suddenly Lay People are NEEDED to give out Holy Communion at Mass.
Holy Communion Under Both Species:
The Eastern Churches, both Catholic & Eastern Orthodox, have Holy Communion via Intinction and the Priest, Bishop or Deacon, distribute the Body & Blood of Christ via Gold Plated Holy Communion Spoon.
There is none of The Two Station Reception of The Sacrament which occurs only in the Roman Rite Novus Ordo Mass, with an Extraordinary Minister handling the Cup where the Precious Blood of Christ comes from.
Sadly, the Novus Ordo Mass is a place where one can lose one’s Sensus Catholicus, and one’s Faith & one’s Belief in The Most Sublime Sacrament of The Altar.

It is Time To End The Novus Ordo Mass.

“Pagan Gaia Goes to Mass (Vatican II & the New World Order)” on YouTube

6 Aug

Post Vatican II shows The Fruits of Vatican Council II and The Fruits are BAD Fruits.

Michael Matt shows this so eloquently.

WHY should the SSPX sign to agree with Vatican Council II? I say “No Way.”

And for that “Justin Bieber At Middle Age Who Works In That Warehouse Of Toys and Gadgets In Detroit”, You have such UNMITIGATED CHUTZPAH, to declare the SSPX IN SCHISM? WHY? Because they won’t go along with the Novelties of Vatican Council II?

Neo Catholic! The SSPX IS MORE CATHOLIC THAN YOU ARE.
AND WHO ARE THOSE 5 Cardinals who told you that the SSPX are in Schism?

A “Hymn To Gaia”, a Pagan Demon? Who was “Spiking The Molson’s Beer in Toronto, Eh?” I would doubt it was Rex Murphy.

Do Watch this. It is a well made Video.

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.

Deo Gratias

“NO” Observation

3 Jul

“NO” in this case means Novus Ordo or New Order. It was in the “Vetus Ordo” or Old Order Roman Rite Catholic Primary Liturgy, called The Holy Sacrifice of The Mass of The Council Of Trento, when The Priest offered the Primary Liturgy facing Liturgical East towards Jerusalem and not Liturgical West towards Portofino Restaurant.

For My Most Dear Friend asked a Question which must be asked Today in the case of the Current Roman Rite Catholic Primary Liturgy:
“WHY Does The Priest have his back turned away from God?”

You have to expect this when a Liturgy, Not passed down through Tradition, is artificially put together by Committee, through Consultation with Men of Heretical Sects(Protestants), while adding pieces from the Eastern Churches, to create something to upset the Core Roman Rite Catholic Constuency.

Time to Abolish The Novus Ordo Liturgy is NOW.

The “Prayer Of The Faithful”

6 Jun

It was on Sunday, November 29th, 1964 when “The Prayer Of The Faithful” was added to the Tridentine Form Of The Mass. It would be the Start of The Novus Ordo Revolution.
Supposedly, it derives from The Great Litany from The Byzantine Rite, though it falls short of the Magnificence of The Divine Liturgies of St. John Chrysostom and St. Basil The Great. I give you Two Litany Examples which are in both liturgies, and these are sung by Priest or Deacon:
“For Favorable Weather, An Abundance of the Fruits of The Earth and For Peaceful Times, Let Us Pray to The Lord”, for which the Cantor chants ” Kyrie Elaison”(Lord Have Mercy);
This Litany opens the Divine Liturgy, “In Peace, Let Us Pray To The Lord” followed by the “Kyrie.”
On this Subject, many of the Litanies in the Roman/Latin Rite Ordinary Form Mass are not as good. Some however are variations of the Byzantine Form but recited and not sung. Lord Hear Our Prayer(Deus Exaudinos) is also recited. Usually, the Mass Cantor or Lector, leads these Litanies.
My Alternate Mass to the TLM is the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom in the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, and I will head to Holy Cross in Astoria, QueensNY for the 5PM Saturday Vigil Divine Liturgy. It is All Saints Sunday on the Julian Calendar as well as 1st Sunday After Pentecost.
If one who worships at the Ordinary Roman/Latin Rite Form Mass or the Tridentine Latin Mass is interested in going to a Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgy, by all means, do it. It will teach you a lot about both forms of Roman/Latin Rite Mass. And The Great Litany will explain “The Prayers Of The Faithful.”
The Byzantine Rite Catholics know this Litany quite well. It will be a real lesson for those who wonder why there are Prayers Of The Faithful. It is actually Eastern Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Prayer.
But, sadly, there was no real Catechisis in regards to this in the Roman/Latin Rite.
What Else Is New!

Pentecost Is Actually 8 Days

20 May

When the Ecclesiastical Calendar went from the Tridentine to Novus Ordo, the Time of Pentecost went from 8 Days to just the Saturday Vigil and Sunday Mass Schedule. The PROTESTANTIZATION of The Roman|Latin Rite of The Catholic Church, would basically be complete. The Day after Pentecost would be the continuation of what began after Baptism of The Lord, namely Ordinary Time, instead of what used to be called Time After Pentecost.

Pentecost, which is Ten Days after Ascension Thursday, used to begin on Saturday with Vigil of Pentecost, followed by Pentecost Sunday and go through into the Saturday before Trinity Sunday. Easter Season ends on That Saturday before Trinity Sunday. Four Days After Trinity Sunday, came The Feast of Corpus Christi. The Sunday after Corpus Christi began the Cycle called Time After Pentecost. It is in October that The Feast Of Christ The King came to be celebrated in All The Churches In Union With The Holy See.

For those who practice by The Tridentine Calendar, Pentecost Is An Octave, like Easter and Christmas.
When the Calendar Change to Novus Ordo occurred, Blessed Paul VI went to celebrate The Mass Of The Octave of Pentecost. What surprised him unto the point of Crying, was that in addition to the New Mass, Bugnini & Company came up with a Totally New Liturgical Calendar.
The Gutting of The Calendar of The Roman|Latin Rite was Complete. Thus, the Era of The Novus Ordo was in full swing.

The Church has not been the Same, but is going through Her Passion. These past 45 Years have caused many Parishes and Schools to fold up.

It’s Sad.

But with the Resumption of the Tridentine Latin Mass, albeit on a Limited Basis, some sense of Solemnity and Sanity will keep One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, continues. The Eastern Catholic Churches are holding The Fort. They, along with The Tridentine Latin Mass, represent Tradition.

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.

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

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!

E 43 St. Agnes Tridentine In The Basement

27 Apr

New Pews are being installed at St. Agnes R C Church on East 43rd Street, Lexington to 3rd Avenue on the cross, in Midtown Manhattan. So all Masses are being moved into the Parish Center in the Basement.
The last time I went to Mass in the Basement was when I was in Freshman Year of St. Agnes HS in 1969, so it has been 45 Years since I went to Mass there(The Last Days of The Tridentine Form Mass until The Tridentine Latin Mass returned Gloriously).The High School has since folded(2013 uptown, and not under Parish Control since 1990). The Reputation of The Parish is a Great Parish for Classical Music & Gregorian Chant. It had an effect on me this morning in that it was truly emotional.

Just being in the Basement was part of memories of long ago. Another thing is that I never went to a Novus Ordo in that part of the building. For I went to the Missa Cantata, the Finest One ever sung to date. The “Aperges Me” was sung as we were blessed by The Priest with Holy Water.
Four Very Lovely Voiced Young Ladies along with a Soloist, made for memorable renditions of “Kyrie” & “Gloria”, as Tears streamed down my face. This Mass is the TRUE, Holy Sacrifice of The Mass. The “Gloria In Excelis Deo” is certainly NOT the One written by Dan Schutte, to the Tune of “My Little Pony” in This Case. The St. Louis Jesuits would not feel comfortable at this performance. Schutte, Haas, Haugen & Farrell would make this Missa Cantata sound like Lite FM 106.7, to which My Most Dear Friend would call “The Chant of Vomit.”

The Catholic(Both Greek & Roman/Latin)way of the Scriptural Readings, is for Epistle, Gradual & Gospel, is used here. The Gospel Reading was of Christ telling His Apostles that He will be going Back To The Father but that the Holy Spirit will be with them, as He promised them to protect The Apostles from teaching Error.

Due to the cramped conditions inside of The Basement, under instruction of Father Myles Murphy, in order to keep traffic flowing, we stood for Holy Communion, just like it is done in the Byzantine Rite.
Some Genuflected before The Body of Christ. I performed a Byzantine bow, only to crack into The Paten, which keeps any tiny particles from the Consecrated Hosts from falling on the Floor. One could call this a “Byz-Lat” Moment as the two practices merged together in a Rare Moment in Tridentine Land.

After Mass, a Gentleman named David was holding court. David is truly an Expert in the Tridentine Latin Mass which he still remembers as a child & He does remember in the way I remembered, when Women always covered their heads BEFORE entering Church. Men were to be bareheaded just before entering Church. This was covered under the Code of Canon Law until the repeal in the November, 1983 Code of Canon Law. The Law was disregarded once The Novus Ordo Mass of what seems to be One Novelty After Another, came into being.
David & I both know the same woman in Queens. She currently wears the Mantilla, at a Novus Ordo Mass, which is a great thing. It is a reminder of The Truly Catholic Past, which looks to become part of The Present & Future.

Tradition is “En Vogue”, Again.

Deo Gratias!

From Freedom To Liberty, The Novus Ordo Mass Part One.

24 Apr

Perhaps in 1967, when one of my Nuns(Who Wasn’t One By June 18th, 1969) began to wear a Modern Habit, I had an idea that something was about to change, for later that year, something called “The Folk Mass” was to come of age.
For the US Conference Of Catholic Bishops, petitioned the Holy See & called for Total Vernacular and Offertory & Consecration to be recited aloud. I finally got to hear both Offertory & Roman Canon Consecration Prayers for the Very 1st Time. This was still the Tridentine Form of The Mass. This is also where the “Pro Multis” Translation became controversial. One could say that a New Movement was underway. In fact, TWO Movements were underway. One was “Sedevacantism” where the Chair of Peter has been vacant since Pope Pius XII, said by Sedevacantists to be the Last Real Pope, With Antipopes occupying the Chair of Peter. The Other Movement is The Catholic Traditionalist Movement, calling For Authentic Catholic Liturgy & Practice, including The Tridentine Mass in Latin.

The Translation Controversy:
Multis, a Latin Word, is Root for “Multiple, Multiply, Multi.” But Multis, is also Many. Yet, Multis was translated as All. Omni is the Latin for All. This pattern would follow into the Novus Ordo Missae, where until 1St Sunday of Advent, 2011, the English Language “Translations” were Suspect.

As to which person had the sheer audacity to come up with the “Guitar Mass”  was Benedictine Arch Abbot Rembert Weakland, now Archbishop Emeritus of the R C Archdiocese of Milwaukee, WI. He and a group of Bishops had exploited the Ambiguous Language of Sacrosanctum Concilium in regards to Appropriate Liturgical Music in Place of Gregorian Chant. Do you think that I like Guitar Masses? By the time that I was 16, I had enough of that Music, which wouldn’t go over too well in a Greenwich Village Kaffehaus.

Two Additions & Two Subtractions(Tridentine Form):
The “Judica Me Deus” prayer of The Priest was eliminated in 1965. The Last Gospel According To St. John, which is The Story of The Incarnation, was also eliminated.
The Addition was called and still called today “General Intercessions-Prayers of The Faithful.” Some people think that this is Lutheran but is actually derived from the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgies of St. John Chrysostom and St. Basil The Great(Tridentine Calendar Feast Days are in January). At 1st this Line of Chant was sung or said on Sundays after the Nicene Creed, then was added to be offered 7 Days a Week in the Novus Ordo.
The Other was the extension of The Kiss of Peace to the General Congregation. This Practice faded away many centuries ago in the Roman/Latin Church but was kept alive by The Maronite Catholic Church in The Antiochean Rite. This would continue in the New Mass, in The current form at one Rather Large Parish Church In Forest Hills, where it’s Nickname is “The Martyrs Wave” since everybody is so spread out, particularly at The 8:00AM Daily Mass.
I will state that the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom is both a Mass of Sacrifice and Reparation, and a Source of Instruction, a Key to understanding both the Ordinary Form of Mass today & the Tridentine Form of Mass.

The Mass Of Freedom & The Mass Of Liberty:
Freedom means being Free to do what is required, while Liberty, which is part & Parcel, Liberalism, means being Free to do whatever One wants to do.

As to what occurred when the Roman Latin Catholic Church when the Mass was switched from Freedom To Liberty, or from Truly Roman Rite to Neo-Protestantism, it began slowly on Sunday, November 29th, 1964, here in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, NY. Mass began as Usual at The Appointed Times. But, the 1st Appearance of Laity came to the Tridentine Form of The Mass In the Form of a Commentator(If You are thinking of FOX Sports One Time Lead Baseball Analyst, Tim Mc Carver, who is Catholic of Irish Descent, you would not only be incorrect, you would be thinking that Acoustic Torture occurred. In a few instances it might be True). The Commentator explained the Parts of The Mass which until November 29th, 1964, were in Latin. Frankly, this 1st Novelty was NOT Needed, especially since this was the Same Form of Mass as it was in Latin. The Offertory & Consecration were offered in Latin. The Changes were as follows:
The “Judica Me Deus”(“Judge Me O God”), recited by The Priest, as a form of Humility before God The Father, as the Priest acts “In Persona Christi”(In The Person of Christ) to offer Christ’s Sacrifice to The Father at The High Altar,as Another Christ(Alter Christus).
The Priest’s Confession of Sins occurred with his recitation of The Confiteor. The Servers & now joined by the Parishioners did the Response to the Priest’s Confiteor. The Public Confiteor was recited by the Parishioners, followed by The Priest giving his absolution followed by the Amen from the People in The Pews. The names of the Saints(Blessed Virgin Mary, Blessed Michael The Archangel, Blessed John The Baptist, The Holy Apostles Peter & Paul & All The Saints)were still intact so that they may be intercessors before God.

The Kyrie retained the “3, 3, 3” format. The Gloria followed The Kyrie(Except in Advent & Lent).
The Introit(Opening Prayer) was recited before the Epistle, followed by The Gradual and then The Gospel. After the Gospel came the Homily.

This 1st Part of The Mass, called The Mass of The Catechumens(Those Under Religious Instruction for Coming into The Catholic Church) was now called “Liturgy Of The Word.”

The Second Part of The Mass, which was called “Mass Of The Faithful”, was renamed “Liturgy Of The Eucharist.” Only on Sundays, was the the Nicene Creed prayed(Credo In Uno Deo or “I Believe In One God”). What followed on Sundays was a New Part of The Mass, called “Prayers Of The Faithful-General Intercessions.” This is a Byzantine Rite Import, coming from the General Prayer of The Divine Liturgies of The Byzantine Rite, which most Latin Rite Catholics have No Idea about. Many Roman Rite Catholics believed this to be a Protestant Innovation. Then again, most Roman Rite Catholics have no idea about Eastern Catholic Churches. Those of us who head to The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom in the Ruthenian or Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, are used to these acclamations during the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Antiphons. Protestant, it is NOT. St. John Chrysostom would come down on you for talking about this, as he is a Doctor Of The Church.

The Offertory had 6 Prayers in the Roman/Latin Rite, where The Priest anticipated The Sacrifice by praying for Forgiveness of his sins as well as for Those People, Living & Dead. There is also The Epiclesis to call upon The Holy Spirit to come upon The Bread & Wine to become The Body & Blood of Christ. In The Byzantine Rite, the Epiclesis is during the Eucharistic Canon.
Finally, there is a Prayer for Purifying the Hands, which is part of the Byzantine Rite’s Preparation of The Gifts before the Public part of the Divine Liturgies.

This is still a Sacrificial Mass. This Mass is still The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass. The Priest still faced towards Jerusalem.
The Orate Fratres was recited, followed by a Prayer followed by the Sanctus & then The Roman Canon. There was only ONE Canon. There was no Parenthesis & Option. Everything was offered. At the Time of The Consecration, there was no Narrative. It was all The Words of Christ which the Priest prayed. When the Blood was consecrated, the Words “Mysterium Fidei”(Mystery of Faith) were spoken, signifying that Transubstantiation(Elements were changed) to the Body & Blood, Soul & Divinity of Christ) had occurred.
The Prayers CONTINUED with the end of Each Prayer stating “Though Christ Our Lord.”
Then, The Lord’s Prayer(Our Father) was prayed. It is here that the Kiss of Peace was prayed. The Sign of Peace was only an option. Then the Holy Communion Rite, where the Priest received 1st, followed by Public Reception occurred. The Ejaculation of “Domine Non Sum Dignus”(O Lord I am Not Worthy) was recited 3 Times by Priest and later by The Congregation.
People knelt and received Holy Communion.
Beginning at Easter in 1964, The Priest said “Corpus Christi” and the Response was “Amen.” Translated into English, it was “Body of Christ” followed by “Amen”(From 11/29/1964 onward).

There was no Last Gospel on 11-29-1964 except at the High Mass(Still The Tridentine Latin Mass).

The Blessing came followed by a Final Priestly Prayer & then the Dismissal with the Sign of The Cross.

On Sunday, November 30th, 1969 things would be so Different. The Translation was Horrible. And The Mass had a New Name, using what the Church of England gave the Liturgy, “The Lord’s Supper, Also Called The Mass, it was “Welcome To Protestantism in The Roman Rite Of The Catholic Church”, as the Priest faced the Congregation for the 1st Time. It was weird to be at this Mass. The Confiteor left out the Saints, except for One Mention of Blessed Mary Ever Virgin near the end of The Prayer and a Double Mention of “Vos Fratres”(My Brethren in a Politically Correct Form, of “Brothers & Sisters”, leaving out of the “Translation” of “Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa”(Through My Fault, Through My Fault, Through My Most Grievous Fault). This turned out to be an option.
The Kyrie went in a “2, 2, 2” configuration. Eventually the Gloria was said by Christmas. The Nicene Creed was badly Translated and turned into a Communal Response. The Confiteor was mistranslated. Years later I read the Confiteor and found that it took its Cue from the Lutheran Version of The Prayer.
The Offertory took its Cue from A Book, Condemned by Christ, called The Talmud, a book of Jewish Traditions, which cursed both Christ & The Blessed Virgin Mary. No longer were prayers for Living and Dead offered by The Priest, who was called “Presider”. Something had gone terribly wrong.

And People eventually stopped showing up for Mass.
And Chaos Reigned. Eventually there was Holy Communion in The Hand & Standing for Holy Communion. Mass Schedules changed dramatically. For once there were 10 Sunday Masses. In many of the Parishes, there are only 10 Masses all Week..

In the Parish in which I was baptized in City Line, Brooklyn, there were 10 Masses on Sunday. Today, there are only 10 Scheduled Masses all week, excluding Funerals & Weddings.
Daily Masses were offered at 6, 7, 8 & 9:00AM. Once a month, on 1st Friday, Mass was offered at 11:00AM, followed by Benediction of The Blessed Sacrament for the Children of The Catholic School.

The beginnings of Saturday Vigil Masses was in 1970 here In the Brooklyn Diocese. That 7:30PM Mass was well attended. It had NONE of the Horrible Music which drove people on Sunday, crazy.
But, attendance dropped so Masses were consolidated. Masses started at 8AM, 9:30AM, 11AM & 12:30PM. Masses in the School Hall no longer occurred. There were only 5 Sunday Masses including the Saturday Vigil. Hence, the results of the change of The Mass was beginning to be felt. The Teaching of The Catholic Faith in Catholic Schools dispensed with the Teaching of Sound Doctrine. Concepts replaced Doctrine.

Two and One Half Generations of Young People were lost. I remember one 1969 Elementary School Classmate, became a Baptist. The Tridentine Latin Mass which reinforced Catholic Teaching, was offered in very few places.

IT’S A DISASTER. What was supposed to be “Renewal Through The Liturgy” & a “New Springtime”, has been a Long Winter.

End of Part I.

Kyrie Elaison!
