sspx.org/ - One of the most controversial issues within the Catholic Church today is the question of the New Mass or “Novus Ordo Missae”. It is this question that we are going to explore in this video.

This Novus Ordo Missae, or new way of saying Mass, was introduced in 1969 by Pope Paul VI.

The liturgist in charge of elaborating the new rite, Archbishop Annibale Bugnini, made it clear that the main intention was to design a rite able to enforce the new ecumenism adopted by the Second Vatican Council. He declared in 1965: “We must strip from our Catholic prayers and from the Catholic liturgy everything which can be the shadow of a stumbling block for our separated brethren - that is, for the Protestants.”

To accomplish this ecumenical goal, he solicited the help of six Protestant ministers.

Focus on Man
In the new rite man has become more of the focus, not so much God. The priest and faithful gather for a meal to share with one another Christ’s loving presence.

This desire to create a man-centered liturgy has produced noticeable changes: using vernacular languages, introducing "Mass facing the people" and equating the laity's role with that of the priest. Even the Blessed Sacrament has been removed from the visible center in the church and is now often reserved away from the main altar and out of view.

Also many abuses have been introduced, such as lay Eucharistic Ministers, Communion in the hand, and altar girls. Even Vatican II's instruction that Gregorian chant should be given "pride of place" is ignored.

The consequences of these changes have been, among many others, a shocking reduction in the number of religious vocations and a decrease in weekly attendance at Mass. Sacramental confession, as an important preparation before receiving the Eucharist, has also steadily declined.

Focus on God
The traditional Mass, on the contrary, focuses on the worship of God and the true sacrificial nature of the Mass. The Catholic Church teaches that Jesus Christ, through the priest, offers His Body and Blood to His Father in atonement for all the sins of humanity; Holy Communion is a consequence of this Sacrifice and allows men to receive the effects of the sacrifice of reparation.

The use of a sacred language such as Latin for the worship of God, the many signs of respect and adoration to show our loving submission to Him, the unique role of the ordained priest who takes the place of Christ at the altar, a reverent and humble reception of Holy Communion kneeling and on the tongue, the awe-inspiring sacred chants are all indicative of how the Mass directs us to God.

Return to Tradition
A return to the traditional form of the liturgy has consistently produced an increase in vocations, a better attendance at Sunday and even at daily Mass, a more frequent use of the sacrament of Penance, and overall a heightened awareness of the sacred, sacrificial nature of the liturgy.

The traditional Mass and all of the doctrine that it conveys is the means for a true restoration of all things in Christ.

Recommended Resources

For a detailed analysis of the New Mass, we recommend reading “Pope Paul’s New Mass” by Michael Davies, available at AngelusPress.org

Freemasons had a goal of putting a Mason as head of the Catholic church, which Paul VI was. Our Lady of La Sallette warned us that the Vatican would "lose the faith and become the seat of the anti-Christ." Eventually, Pope Francis will initiate changes to the Mass on his own authority (not infallibly as Pope, he has already addressed the United Nations, "In my own name...") which will facilitate the New World Order's one-world religion which will usher in the anti-Christ. Woe to his followers, especially apostate Catholics.

The first frame of problems [C.1:45], yes there was false ecumenism has occurred in a very "hush hush" way which came from priests of the Tridentine Mass; note, such a statement is not to diminish the ancient rite but to show that the root isn't so superficial. Vatican II promotes the vernacular for the lessons and puts emphasis that Latin should be retained for "those parts of the Ordinary of the Mass which [the laity have any part in]" for the same reason that Gregorian Chant is to be held sacred. The priestly role with respect to the ordination process being simplified, I agree there is some romance lost; however, the priesthood is still the priesthood which involves an intimate relationship of being crucified with our Lord. The last bullet is also an absurd attribution to the council, that's been the desires of false prelates since before the reformation and comes from lacking the grace of faith. If the devil cannot make you offend the Blessed Sacrament, He'll want to make you hate the Body of Christ; if he can't do that, he'll shoot for having you never see The Host; if not even that, he'll want you to forget and even not believe that Jesus is completely present there in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar with his Crucified flesh and blood as stated by Trent clearly as possible.

The following frame asserts that scandalous actions which may quickly cost the faithful the grace of faith, such as receiving communion in the hand is part of Vatican II is also being shallow in estimation as it comes from the same men who wished for a protestant church in spite of being raised in the Old Rite. I mean only to say that the root runs much deeper and requires the counsel of the saints to ascertain. The other three parts are abuses as it is uncanonical to utilize "altar girls" unless necessary in the USA for instance, while they are not permitted in Nigeria from what I've heard, by the decree of the bishops. Sadly, the same bishops who use political correctness as a "necessity." There is a very sad history of the bishops of America just before and immediately after Vatican II which has birthed much of the spirit that promulgates many SSPX followers and sympathizers.
The next slide [C. 2:22], doesn't concede that the very tragedy that births any degree of declining respect for the Public Prayers of Holy Mother Church doesn't bring about other problems with it. Rather, as if by slight of hands, it blames the Novus Ordo Missae as the fault by generalization. Vatican II is now guilty by association as much as Vatican I was for the "Old Catholics" schismatics.
I am very confused how the claims of frame around 3:20 are inherent to the Extraordinary Form of the Mass when the very men who brought about the scandals which became public and "mainstream" after Vatican II defied each and every one of them while being weened on them? Undoubtedly many did not say mass reverently nor receive communion well nor confess well as some were infiltrator communists [Ven. Fulton Sheen discovered this and became a lion of a priest after hearing the confession of such a priest] as the ones who continue the scandal are infiltrating homosexual priests and bishops. The root is not so superficial as which Mass do you hear.
Fear of God brings the effects found on the frame around 3:40. As you should know, Fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom. However, if you lack the grace of Faith, you shall never have the gifts of the spirit which permit the confessing of ones sins to a lawful priest often and sincerely.
