  • [Cath Cauc] Don't whitewash history: Paul VI was front and center the creator of the New Mass

    Rorate Caeli ^ | April 19, 2018 | New Catholic
    Don't whitewash history: Paul VI was front and center the creator of the New Mass of Paul VI Sandro Magister, the great Vaticanist of our age, has an article today with important excerpts from a biography of Paul VI in which it is claimed that he was almost a victim of the liturgical revolution, a bystander who had almost no control over what Bugnini did at the Consilium for the application of the liturgical reform. Sorry, we don't buy that. Saying Paul VI had little responsibility for the New Mass of Paul VI is like saying Louis XIV had no...

    Rorate Caeli ^ | March 4, 2018 | Peter Kwasniewski
    A Case Study of Rupture in the Lex Orandi: The Epistles of Lenten Sundays One of the most striking areas of rupture and discontinuity between the traditional Latin Mass and the Mass of Paul VI is to be found in the passages of Scripture read on Sundays. The annual cycle of the old Missal, embodying the practice of well over a millennium, puts before the Christian people year after year essential truths of the spiritual life and fundamentals of morality to which we must always return. The three-year cycle of the new Mass, an unprecedented novelty against the backdrop of...

    The 15th century choir of the cathedral of the Austrian Military Ordinariate in Wiener Neustadt is about to be disfigured. The high altar will be removed to make room for chairs. It will be replaced by a table. Military Bishop Werner Freistetter is responsible for this devastation which will start in summer 2018.Freistetter was consecrated a bishop in June 2015. Already in January 2016 he dissolved the military parish of his cathedral in order to get rid of the parish-priest, Father Siegfried Lochner who ran a very dynamic, young and Catholic parish, including families. Under the new, paleo-liberal regime, Masses...

    Home Blog Post CONFIRMED: The “Ecumenical Mass” has arrived CONFIRMED: The “Ecumenical Mass” has arrived Louie November 6, 2017 4 Comments It has long been rumored that a secret Vatican commission has been assigned the task of creating a so-called “Ecumenical Mass;” a rite recently described by Italian journalist Marco Tossati as “a liturgy designed to unite Catholics and Protestants around the Holy Table.”Well, akaCatholic is now able to report that a high-ranking curial official (a cardinal who I hope to be able to identify by name soon) has unequivocally confirmed, in writing, not only that the committee was...
  • If the Second Vatican Council Had Never Happened, Would We Still Have a “New Mass?” … Quite Possibly

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 01-06-15 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    If the Second Vatican Council Had Never Happened, Would We Still Have a “New Mass?” … Quite Possibly By: Msgr. Charles PopeOne of the unfortunate couplings with those who lament the loss of the “pre-Conciliar” Mass (a.k.a. Traditional Latin Mass (TLM), Extraordinary Form, 1962 Missal, etc.) is the linking of the “New Mass” (a.k.a. Ordinary Form) wholly with the Second Vatican Council. This connection, while understandable given the emergence of the Ordinary Form just after the Council, is too simplistic and is unhelpful for a number of reasons. Without the Second Vatican Council, would the Ordinary Form of the Mass be...
  • Pope Francis calls for renewed commitment to Vatican II’s Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy

    Pope Francis has issued a message on the occasion of a symposium devoted to the 50th anniversary of Sacrosanctum Concilium, the Second Vatican Council’s Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy. Stating that the anniversary evokes “sentiments of gratitude for the profound and widespread renewal of liturgical life made possible by the conciliar Magisterium, to the glory of God and the edification of the Church,” the Pope called for a renewal in the “commitment to receive and implement” the document’s teaching in a fuller manner. Pope Francis said that the Constitution and the postconciliar Magisterium “have made us better understand the liturgy...

    Yonkers, NY––Blake Jennings, lead guitarist at St. Therese Parish in Yonkers, New York is outraged over what he calls “years of concerts being interrupted by the Mass.” The 56-year-old accountant and father of three has played with his band at the 9:30 Folk Mass since 2009. “Our fans love us,” Jennings said, after Sunday Mass. “You can see it in their eyes…the way they droop down, lazily closing as we play…as if their entering into some kind of ecstasy. Or the way some in the parish are so moved they just can’t stand another moment of joy, and simply walk...

    Catholic Exchange ^ | January 28, 2010 | Louie Verrecchio
    The Second Vatican Council’s Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy called for a restoration of the “prayer of the faithful” saying:Especially on Sundays and feasts of obligation there is to be restored, after the Gospel and the homily, "the common prayer" or "the prayer of the faithful." By this prayer, in which the people are to take part, intercession will be made for holy Church, for the civil authorities, for those oppressed by various needs, for all mankind, and for the salvation of the entire world. (SC 53)Exactly how this takes place with regard to form and the specific intercessions offered...

    The Telegraph ^ | 8/2/2009 | Damian Thompson
    The publisher of those toe-curling classics, the “Israeli Mass” and the “Clap-Hands Gloria”, is one of many “liturgists” worried by ICEL’s suggestion that the new (better) English Mass should be accompanied by vernacular chant based on plainsong.As the Tablet reports, clucking sympathetically: UK music publisher Kevin Mayhew said his firm would be commissioning many new Masses, but said worshippers would take months to learn new settings, and felt sure that favourites such as the “Clap-Hands Gloria” and the “Israeli Mass” would remain in use. Not so fast, Kevin. First, those two works are not “favourites”. They are LOATHED, especially by young...

    SF Latin Mass ^ | 1999 | Ratzinger
    “I was dismayed by the prohibition of the old missal, since nothing of the sort had ever happened in the entire history of the liturgy.” Extract from Cardinal Ratzinger's book Milestones: Published by Ignatius Press. The second great event at the beginning of my years in Regensburg was the publication of the Missal of Paul VI, which was accompanied by the almost total prohibition, after a transitional phase of only half a year, of using the missal we had had until then. I welcomed the fact that now we had a binding liturgical text after a period of experimentation that...

    Latin Mass Magazine via Seattle Catholic ^ | reviewed by Fr. Eugene Dougherty
    This book has a very special appeal for those who love the Church and the traditional Latin Mass. It first appeared in Great Britain under the title Literary Converts, and then was reprinted by Ignatius Press in 1999 with the subtitle "Spiritual Inspiration in an Age of Unbelief." I especially like the subtitle because this book has reinforced my faith today by affording me the company of the authors with whom I grew up: G.K. Chesterton, Hilaire Belloc, Ronald Knox, Evelyn Waugh, Graham Greene, Malcolm Muggeridge, and a host of others. My main interest in them today is that many...

    FORMER AIDE TO PADRE PIO SAYS THE SAINT HAD INCORPORATED PART OF THE NEW MASS An Italian priest who served as a liaison between the famed Capuchin St. Padre Pio and English-speaking followers says that the saint had incorporated elements of the new or "Novus Ordo" Mass into his own celebrations of the liturgy before his death in 1968 despite rumors to the contrary. The assisting priest, Padre Ermelindo Di Capua -- currently stationed in San Giovanno, Italy, where St. Pio spent nearly his entire ministry -- says the saint strictly adhered to dictates from Rome and sought information on...

Mole, OMI Hardly had the Second Vatican Council come to an end in 1965 than the Roman Rite was set upon with fulgurating radicality by hordes of liturgical experts who, throwing off all restraint imposed by the Constitution on the Liturgy, rampaged like Red Guards in the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Aroused by articles 37-40 headed "Norms for Adapting the Liturgy to the Temperament and Traditions of People," they made into a...

    Vol. 3 No. 4: May/June 1999 Ideology and Patterns in Translation Error by William J. Sullivan 1. INTRODUCTION 1.1 DEFINING TRANSLATION Translation1 involves the production of a text in one language that was inspired by an existing text in another language, such that the two texts are in some sense 'the same.' Exactly how this is accomplished is open to question. In Sullivan 1984, I show the relationship between proper translation and paraphrase. It involves decoding the message from an existing text and re-encoding the message in a new text. This results in two texts different in form with...

    Vatican caves on meaningful reform of disastrous New Mass “Certainly, we will preserve the basic elements, the bread, the wine, but all else will be changed according to local traditions: words, gestures, colors, vestments, chants, architecture, decor. The problem of liturgical reform is immense.” (Pope John Paul, while still Bishop of Krakow, as quoted in Mon Ami: Karol Wojtyla. P. 220) When last we left the saga of the Novus Ordo Missae, Pope John Paul II promised Catholics worldwide that a new set of instructions to correct liturgical abuses would be drawn up and issued by the Holy See as...

    Sacrosanctum Concilium A Lawyer Examines the Loopholes by Christopher Ferrara, Esq., American Catholic Lawyers Association For nearly 30 years, traditionalists have listened to "conservatives" argue that the postconciliar devastation of the Roman Rite has nothing whatsoever to do with language of Sacrosanctum Concilium, the Second Vatican Council's document on the sacred liturgy. (I shall refer to this document throughout as SC) As we know, most "conservatives" are constitutionally incapable of recognizing that Vatican II opened the way to the greatest debacle in the history of the Catholic Church, producing a state of affairs which makes the Arian heresy look...
