@SBpfu - Indeed! The Benedictines at Norcia are a sterling example of the what Sumorum Pontificum meant; the coexistance of the two Forms of Holy Mass. In the French Solesmes Congregation there is also such a thing, but no a permanent fixture; Liguge and Kergonan would have Missa ad orientem (OF) in Latin 'on occasion' and the 1962 Mass (EF) on occasion as well, e.g. Mass of Low Sunday. Nevertheless, Norica seems to have the most stable example of the two Forms, beautifully executed for the … [More]
@SBpfu - Hi .... Quite, many choose not to READ the Holy Father's writings and are stuck in anachronistic writings which, no doubt, one discovers to be pre-Vat.II and circumstance-conditioned. However, there are those who just think with a paucity of knowledge about the subject. Thanks for educating us chum.
@REVTHREEVS21.... What do you think can be done with the many priests, pastors and even bishops who try to refuse someone communion because they are kneeling, or because they wish to receive on the tongue? What should be done with the pastors who tell the faithful (including 1st communicants) that there is only one way to receive, and its in the hands while standing? What should be done with priests who either drop the Consecrated HOST or sees a lay distributor drop IT and does Nothing to … [More]
First Lefebvre was excommunicated not for his, in my opinion, odd ideas on tradition nor for his reasonable suggestions on other theological issues but for ordaining Bishops without Vatican approval. The situation was not grave. First the Novus Ordo is valid and hence even if Rome had moved to completely ban the Tridentine Mass it would not have been a grave problem. But even if you disagree with that there still was not a grave situation. The Vatican had made it clear it … [More]
“Traditionalists”: It’s not about the Latin Mass When you listen to “Traditionalists” they always talk about the Latin Mass and how horrible the Ordinary Form(OF) is and how wonderful the Extraordinary Form(EF) is. They even justify attending illicit Masses and disobeying the Pope because the Latin Mass, more properly the EF, must be preserved! That’s hokum of course. Because if their beef with the Church was about the EF they’d have all come home by now. There are >400 approved Latin Masses … [More]
Again and again, Bishop Fellay and others of the SSPX have stressed that there are no "negotiations" going on. In other words, it's not a matter of reaching doctrinal compromise. There are discussions happening, not negotiations. Doctrine is never to be compromised.
Father is another witness of the disobedience of those clergy who have and still do create the new mass according to their own desires and "creativity". May the Church be once again raised up by a Holy Clergy who will defend, protect and live out the True Catholic faith. A clergy who will love the traditions of Holy Mother Church and live it through their example. www.latinmasstimes.com
This is just wonderful - a beautifully balanced view and discussion of the whole liturgical crisis in the current Lex Credendi-Lex Orandi praxis. However, I kept seeing that the English questions refering to the Extraordinary Form of Holy Mass in the Roman Rite, said "Latin Mass". I wish to point out,cvm magnis viribvs,that the Roman Rite, according to Sacrosanctvm Concilivm (Vat.II) and Pope Ben. XVI's apostolic exhortationSacramentvm Caritatis,is a Latin language Liturgy. The only differenc… [More]
