Comments on: Latin Mass “power of silence” raises UK Catholic decibels Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: james d Wed, 11 Mar 2009 17:32:12 +0000 The Latin mass is the only Mass!. I went to the new mass for years thinking it was the Latin mass translated. When I looked into it more there was a more sinister side. The truth being the new mass is the devils invention with a lot of evidence to back that up. I solemnly believe that the latin Mass needs to be brought back into every Catholic Church.

By: Mitch Sun, 29 Jun 2008 17:38:32 +0000 In reference to the comments above from Father Mullen…I have to say something. How easy is it to request something or have interest in something that Our Church, Our Bishops, Our Priests, Our Pope (previous)have told us we have no right to ask for. How could we be interested in something we know nothing about. I stumbled across the TLM 2 years ago and Thank God every day I did. The way someone presents the question can have alot to do with the response. I am used to going to Key Food but if someone asked me would I go to Path Mark I would probably say no. I don;t know anything about it, where it is, or what it offers..Does it mean Key Food is better??? I believe that these type of surveys are not reflective of the truth, only ignorance, instilled by the very institution that is asking the question…Have it in every Parish as an option for 5 or 10 years and then ask the same question. I think you will have a different response. After all was it the laity that asked for the changes?? Had you taken the same survey in 1970 I think most would have said they were Ok with the way things were albeit some changes..Not complete rupture..

By: Colleen Wed, 25 Jun 2008 01:04:49 +0000 I can’t wait for the return of the old Latin Mass, my faith was sorely shaken,with the knowledge that it was only by permission a priest could offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the old form. I never knew why they changed it, my feeling was if it wasn’t broken why fix it.

If the Mass was Holy and Sacred as I was taught by the church and believed, why was it being withheld,and a new order being push on us allowing everything except the Trinedine Mass.

When I went to a class on why Catholic and I saw the Tabernacle that at one time had held the Body of Christ,
sitting in a back room I went home and cried.

So Father when you say you have only heard of one person asking for the Old Rite, maybe they gave up asking I know I asked a priest about it and he got angry.

O tried and true, O Latin Mass, I will always be beside You.

O Christmas Tree, O Christ’s Mass, I never take away my eyes from you.

My Latin Mass, My Latin True, O how Very Extraordinary art You!

O Latin Mass, O Latin Mass, make me happy any day Low or High too.

From More’s Bridge, to Campion’s Tower – to Iona and up to Crocanaffrin. O Latin MASS, Yes Latin Mass, how Gregorian art you.

I am never nervous near you, no novus disorder turns me round,

For O Latin Mass, O Latin Mass, it’s because I trust your Tridentine Smile.

And so now I promise you, O Latin Mass, O My Sweetest Latin Mass, I will always be faithful.

Learn Thy Mass!

Wonderful post that really crushes the head of the progessive-liberal argument here.

Thank you!


Quote: “How many of your hundred priests [and their respective ordinaries] actually informed their parishes/dioceses of the Motu Proprio – and the oportunity for them to request the extraordinary form ? How many of them actually contravened summorum pontificum by both suppressing it and preventing its promulgation within the Church ?
It’s a far from subtle ploy and a thoroughly specious argument : It’s known as a fallacy of non-causation – a nil cum hoc ergo non propter hoc fallacy .
e.g. A shopkeeper keeping a product behind the counter so nobody knows of it , nobody buys it – therefore nobody wants it !!!
If few ask it’s potentially because hardly anyone knew their was an opportunity to ask.”

By: Bryan Dunne Thu, 19 Jun 2008 10:55:51 +0000 You can find a link to Cardinal Castrillon’s sermon at Westminster Cathedral on the Latin Mass Society website

“….As Pope Benedict has written in his letter to the Bishops, which accompanied the Motu Proprio: “the two Forms of the usage of the Roman Rite can be mutually enriching” and I sincerely hope that your love for the classical form of the Roman Rite will never be translated into polemics against the ordinary form of the same rite and will be open to any subsequent directions of the Holy See for its celebration…..”

An extract from the said Semon given on 16th June 2008 at Westminster Cathedral by Cardinal Castrillon.

Time to stop the polemics perhaps?

By: teresia Thu, 19 Jun 2008 09:28:02 +0000 Is there a broad middle ground that might be happy with a Novus Ordo Mass with some Latin (like the Pater Noster or Agnus Dei?).
In the catholic Bavaria, Germany, there are Latin Masses hold in the Novus Ordo every week.

And in the cathedrals there it is common to use the Latin “Credo” after the homily.

And the chorus sings every Sunday the Introitus, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Benedictus und Agnus Dei according to the Missale Romanum in the Novus Ordo.

I know Italians and Spaniards who know the Latin Pater noster, Credo by heart.

By: Paul Priest Wed, 18 Jun 2008 18:46:04 +0000 Tom it’s not the Novus Ordo that’s the problem.
The Novus Ordo was never the disease : It was merely the rash that the Church came out in….

By: Tom Heneghan Wed, 18 Jun 2008 17:41:13 +0000 This is the first time on this blog that I’ve seen such animosity between these two sides on the question of the old Latin Mass. I’m sure that non-Catholics who make the effort to read through all these comments must wonder whether this division is as wide as the Sunni-Shi’ite rift in Islam. Are we just hearing the extremes here? Is there a broad middle ground that might be happy with a Novus Ordo Mass with some Latin (like the Pater Noster or Agnus Dei?).
