Unstoppable: Original Mass Keeps Booming

In 2018 the traditional liturgy was celebrated in 80 countries, a year later in 88 countries, PaixLiturgique.org writes in a status report.

There are 5,550 priests for the Old Rite:

• 657 priests belong to the Society of St Pius X, around 50 more to PiusX orders. Other 50 left PiusX and are considered as “Resistance.”

• 580 priests belong to groups recognised by the Vatican, the biggest of them is the Fraternity of Saint Peter (320 priests).

• 120 priests belong to Fontgombault Abbey and 30 are attached to other Benedictine monasteries.

• about 50 priests belong to groups recognised by dioceses or monasteries.

• over 4,000 diocesan and religious priests celebrate the Old Latin Mass.

They constitute about 1.33% of all Catholic priests, however most of them are young.

After many opinion surveys, PaixLiturgique suggests that at least 10% of the nominal Catholics, more than 130 million, wish the Original Liturgy.

In France, 6% of the nominal Catholics attend the Original Mass.

@BetsyRose It's not as you say. What about the Daily Sacrifice that had taken place in the Temple prior to Our Lord's Incarnation? Our Lord said that He had not come to ALTAR any aspect of the pre Christian Laws.

Not only the Passover was reflected in Christ's Sacrifice. The Mosaic Covenant incorporated different aspects of Jewish worship.

@BetsyRose It's not as you say. What about the Daily Sacrifice that had taken place in the Temple prior to Our Lord's Incarnation? Our Lord said that He had not come to ALTAR any aspect of the pre Christian Laws.

Not only the Passover was reflected in Christ's Sacrifice. The Mosaic Covenant incorporated different aspects of Jewish worship.
1) The Passover Lamb who's FLESH had to be eaten
2) The Sacrificial Lamb, that died covering the sins of the Penitant
3) The Bread of the Presence of God, that lay in front of the Ark of the Covenant in the Holy of Holies. -
4) The Eucharistia of Melchisadek - A liturgical blessing consisting of Bread and Wine.

Christ's Death merges all Rituals of the Hebrew Covenants. Not just the Passover.

Little known by His flock. During the Old Testament period, the Sacrificial Lamb of atonement, was slain for specific sins of the repentant sinner. Prior to the Lamb being slain, The High Priest heard the sins of the individual sinner, the right hand of the sinner was then placed upon the neck of the lamb, at that juncture the sin was known to have been passed onto the lamb , and then the High Priest pronounced the sin forgiven and the Lamb was put to death in the sinner's place. This had been the ONLY acceptable sin offering acceptable to Our Lord (The Word) during the Temple period. This was known as the Perpetual Sacrifice. Not just a "Passover Meal" it took place on a Daily basis so that people could go home "sin-free" and get on with their lives.

Each daily sacrifice of the animal, was a prefigurement of Christ's PERFECT Sacrifice that was to come. The prefiguring sin offering was transformed with Christ's death for our sake on the Cross. As in the time of Our Lord's Old Covenant, our Daily sins need covering, so, as in the time of the Jewish Covenant, Christ's Sacrifice is continuously offered on the Altars of a plenethery of Priests. Re-presented perpetually so that many people throughout all era's of history may be saved through the Lamb's Sacrifice- COUNTLESS generations of sins presented to Him and His atoning death perpetually re-presented so that our sins can be washed away.

For your information it is shown through the Priest celebrating the Liturgy that far more than a re-enactment of the Passover is being presented. Were it just a passover celebration, no Priest would be necessary. Christ is said in the Book of Hebrews to be "A Priest in the line of Melchisadek" Melchisadek was the one who offered Abraham "Liturgical Bread and Wine" known as a "Eucharistia" throughout the Old Testament.

The commonly believed most ancient form of the Mass is known as "The Liturgy of St James." Celebrated first in Jerusalem and documented to have been considered by the Church Fathers to be connected with St James the Just.
Here is a translation into English of the ancient Byzantine none-Latin Liturgy.

When Pope Pius V wrote his Apostolic Constitution "Quo Primum" in 1570 he granted permission for all ancient Liturgical Masses to be perpetually celebrated - although he forbade on pain of anathema - FOREVER any new Liturgical Rites other than the Tridentine Rite.

I realize all that But the early Christians celebrated in small communities in their homes and they PARTICIPATED in the liturgy, not just watched it. They came to make “Passover”, to be taken from death to life in Christ. Similar to our current times- celebrating in our homes because the Church is not open, but we cannot NOT celebrate. We cannot NOT proclaim that Death is Overcome!!! He is Risen,…More

Sorry to burst your bubble but this is SO far from the “original mass” that the apostles would wonder what you were doing. The link to our catholic mass is the Jewish Passover our Lord celebrated with his disciples. Jesus comes to us at every mass to pass us from death to life. We PARTICIPATE in this, NOT watch it.

May 1st is the feast of Saint Pellegrino Laziosi, “the Angel of Good Counsel”: Romagnan nobleman, Ghibelline, Servite priest, ascetic, founder of the Forlì friary, mystic, ecstatic, and wonderworker—who died on this day in 1345. He is the patron of those suffering from cancer.
