"The Novus Ordo Missae was the result of a desk effort by a special liturgical commission in which a delegation of Protestant pastors also participated, chaired by Monsignor Annibale Bugnini, who was given wide latitude. In sharp contrast, the rite of the Mass of Ages had been built up brick by brick, from the moment of its institution willed by Christ onward, along the centuries of the Church’s Tradition: we are, therefore, in the presence of an extraordinary work of goldsmithing, so to speak, which has gradually allowed for the human and divine setting of gems and shaping of material—a masterpiece of inestimable value, with which the revolutionized rite will never be able to compete for firmness of Truth and for supreme Beauty. After 15 years of living under the provisions of Benedict XVI’s Summorum Pontificum, clergy, religious men and women, families, children and young people have come to know the wonders of such a Holy Mass, which they can no longer renounce for any reason in the world. Their conscience is at stake....
"[I]t is first and foremost the priests who will save the Mass for what it authentically is—that is, those priests who do not betray their identity (for the ordained minister of God exists ontologically because the Holy Sacrifice of the altar exists!) and who continue to administer the sacraments according to rites that are not modernistic and protestantized but follow the parameters of the Church’s Tradition, thus guarding the deposit of the Faith. As has always been the case in the Church’s grave moments of crisis (think of the spread of Arianism after the Council of Nicaea and the proliferation of Protestant denominations after the rebellion of the early Reformers), the lay faithful united with their priests guarantee the necessary and militant resistance."
