  • Vanity - A Path Back to Liturgical Sanity (Catholic Caucus)

    A Path Back to Liturgical Sanity Whether they realize it or not, the Mass with which most Catholics are familiar, the one said in almost all Catholic Churches in the Western Hemisphere, is called the Novus Ordo, or more colloquially, the "new Mass." Many older Catholics may remember the Tridentine Mass, sometimes referred to as "the old Latin Mass," or the "Traditional Latin Mass (TLM)." More and more, however, young people are discovering the beauty of the Mass as it was known for hundreds of years before the wreckovation that occurred after Vatican II. While the Novus Ordo is a...
  • The 'Pope Francis Effect': The war on conservative Catholics in New York

    When Cardinal Bergoglio was elected pope in 2013, many traditional Catholics were wary. Recently, their pessimism is being justified as "The Francis Effect" makes itself felt across the world and in America, most notably in the Archdiocese of New York. So-called "traditional" Catholics prefer to attend the Mass as it was celebrated before and during the Second Vatican Council (1962-5), before the liturgy was radically reformed in 1969. The Tridentine Mass, which was the ordinary form of the Mass from 1570-1969, is said in Latin, often accompanied by Gregorian Chant and incense, and emphasizes the sacrificial aspect of the Mass.

    As the Rev. Justin Wylie took the pulpit at the Church of the Holy Innocents in Manhattan last month, anger and anxiety emanated from the pews. The church is the only one in New York City to offer a daily traditional Latin Mass, but an archdiocesan panel had recommended that it be closed. Father Wylie, a visiting priest, urged parishioners to be obedient but also to speak up, as traditionalist Catholics, for a place in the church, saying they should not be “turned out like squatters.”

    “A voice in Rama was heard, lamentation and great mourning…” Those are the words of Jeremias the Prophet. St. Matthew’s gospel tells us that they foreshadow King Herod’s murder of Bethlehem’s infant males following the birth of Christ, who Herod feared might usurp his ill-gotten earthly throne. Holy innocents die for different reasons. In every generation. In every place. A church — a very special church — by that name is scheduled to die in Manhattan’s Garment District.

    Traditional Catholic Priest ^ | 1-10-14 | Fr. Peter Carota
    All of us who are traditional Catholics feel strongly about what is happening in the Catholic Church. What I mean is the strong progressive, modernist agenda of telling us to be silent about the intrinsic evil of abortion, homosexual activity, birth control, divorce and modesty. This agenda is being imposed on most Catholics.I bring this issue up, because these are extremely important moral issues that need to be addressed for the well being of our society. How can anyone ever be for the murder of the unborn babies? Any rational person, without prejudices, knows that abortion kills unborn human beings...

    If you go to Rome, you can visit the Piccolo Museo del Purgatorio. Google it and look at some more of the very interesting pictures. People have come back from purgatory to burn their hand prints into prayer books, and clothing. Talk about proof of the fire of purgatory. Yet most people do nothing for the souls of our loved ones suffering there. So today we had a Holy Latin Requiem Mass for All Souls.

    From the Bible we can see that the devil is real and active. Personally, I do not think that there is any other place where the spiritual battle is so intense and extreme, as when it comes to restoring Catholic Tradition. As we read in scripture about the devil asking Jesus to adore him, we know that the devil wants all of us to adore him instead of Jesus. If the devil can’t get us to adore him, he works on getting us to adore ourselves. In the Novus Ordo Mass we see so much anthropomorphic or man centered liturgies....

    My wife and I went to the Tridentine Mass at Immaculate Conception Church(Sleepy Hollow, NY). It has been a very long time since a Mass brought us to tears. The prayers are beautiful, the reverence is palpable. The women had their heads covered, 90% of the men (and boys) wore jacket and tie, the priest's vestments were very traditional (when was the last time you saw a priest wearing a maniple and his biretta), a lot of young families, an altar boy (about 10 years old) and a fairly young priest, both of whom said the Latin prayers as if...

    Ellie Arkin doesn't speak Latin, so upon entering Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Madison on a recent Sunday, the 21-year-old UW-Madison student opened a Latin-to-English translation book provided by the church. For the next hour, she and many of the other parishioners followed along in the book as the Mass unfolded mostly in Latin.... Latin Mass, also known as the Tridentine Mass, is distinguished by more than language. The priest faces the altar, which traditionally faced East, the direction from which Catholics believe Christ will return. This means the priest has his back to the people, which traditionalists view as...

    MANILA, August 14, 2011— An exorcist has led a ritual outside the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) Sunday to ask for God’s forgiveness for those who “dishonored the image of Christ.”Fr. Michelle Joe Zerrudo of the Diocese of Cubao said the prayer was being offered to compensate for whatever has been done to God by those behind the controversial art exhibit at the CCP.“This is an act of love for God to make up for the lack of love. This is not a political rally but simply a religions event,” Zerrudo said.“Regardless of what has been done, we...

Today we will examine what they are, as well as their symbolism.The base garment that a priest wears is the black cassock, or robe. This is the same type of robe that altar servers wear. Over the shoulders of the cassock, a priest wears an amice, a white hood-like garment that symbolizes...

    'Generous' approval Vatican issues new norms for the Tridentine rite.   JOHN THAVIS | Catholic News Service 5/13/11 VATICAN CITY — A new Vatican instruction calls on local bishops and pastors to respond generously to Catholics who seek celebration of the Mass according to the 1962 Roman Missal, commonly known as the Tridentine rite. The instruction, issued May 13, said pastors should approve such Masses for groups of faithful, even when such groups are small or are formed of people from different parishes or dioceses. These faithful cannot, however, contest the validity of the modern Mass or the authority of...

    Here is an excerpt from a lengthy and very thoughtful address on the new translation of the Roman Missal given last month by Auxiliary Bishop James Conley of Denver at the Midwest Theological Forum in Valparaiso, Indiana: The key point here is that the words we pray matter. What we pray makes a difference in what we believe. Our prayer has implications for how we grasp the saving truths that are communicated to us through the liturgy. For instance, our current translation almost always favors abstract nouns to translate physical metaphors for God. If the Latin prayer refers to the...

    Pope Benedict XVI / Photo Credit Mazur Vatican City, May 13, 2011 / 10:55 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Local dioceses should give a “generous welcome” to any laity who wish to attend Mass in the “extraordinary form” and to priests who wish to say it.  That’s the key message of new Vatican guidelines regarding the extraordinary form of the Mass – often popularly referred to as the “Tridentine Mass” or “old Latin Mass.” The “extraordinary form” is the rite of Mass contained within the Roman Missal which was universally used from 1570 to 1962. It was almost always celebrated in...

    While researching an article, my husband heard about St. John Cantius Parish (Chicago), which offers the Tridentine Mass. Being only a thirty minute drive, we decided to make the trip for my first Tridentine Mass ever on January 1st, the feast day of Mary, Mother of God. Being in awe of the Mass, we decided to return on the Epiphany (yesterday). Gregorian chant was heard almost completely throughout the Mass by their choir of just a few individuals. The Tridentine Mass itself is the most beautiful, heavenly, and fluid Mass I could ever imagine. No altar girls, no Eucharistic ministers,...

    One of our fans sent in this video link. For our Catholic readers, we are told that the Pope's focus on traditional ceremony is gaining both old and young alike. Perhaps, something is to be learned politically from this religious trend. Attached is the video recommended. I must say, there is something to be said for a return to tradition and in Western Christian pride. It is inspiring.

    This weekend the celebrant will be Fr.David Taurasi. This Mass is at 11:00am in the Lower Church. The weekly Sunday TLM community was tranferred to Cathedral at the closing of Holy Trinity German Church, also in the South End, on June 30, 2008. Both Holy Trinity communities were warmly welcomed by the Cathedral Rector, Fr Kevin O'Leary, and are overjoyed by Fr Taurasi's return.
