Novus Ordo Seclorum (Secular, world): New World Order. Novus Ordo Missa: New Order of the Mass.
The so-called “new” Mass has so many abuses that it doesn’t begin to compare with the Traditional Latin Tridentine Mass founded in perpetuity by St. Pius V (Quo Primum-July 14, 1570).
Parents take pictures of their daughters dressed up like priests. But isn’t that really what has happened? We have forgotten the Sacrifice of Christ and replaced it with culturally approved norms — what modernly seems right.
Before Vatican II, man always presided at the altar. He has been at the helm of the family. No compromises. Christ had 12 Apostles at the Last Supper — all men. St. Paul elucidated further in Letters to Corinthians and Timothy.
Because you obtain a doctor’s degree in theology, you think you know all about Christ’s ways when you are only following the ways of the world. They took the altar rail out that protected the sanctuary. They thought it restricted others from Christ. No, Holy Communion jumps the rail — the Eucharist comes directly to us as Christ (Hebrews 10:19-20).
Celebration? All you need is one priest (alter Christus) and one altar boy, two at most. The Mass is about “giving thanks” to Christ for His Eternal Sacrifice. Not a school play.
Martin Luther? He embellished “his” ways — had grave problems with confessions, forgiveness. I can trace his abandonment of the Eucharist through Protestants who followed (Thomas Cramer, John Knox, Calvin, Martin Bucer). Each step led them further away from John 6. But since Vatican II, Catholics have followed them and much more. To what avail?
Vatican II shepherds tried to dress up their abandonment of true communion of kneeling families at the altar rail. But to what avail? How many times has the Consecrated Blood spilled and dropped to the floor to be stepped on? You act like the Council of Trent knew nothing when they established that the Consecrated Bread (Jesus Christ) contains His Consecrated Blood.
The Council of Trent, hated by Protestants and ignored by “modern” Catholics, was eminent of Church councils.
