Traditionis custodes: Imprisoning the Traditional Latin Mass

When Pope John XXIII called for the second Vatican II Council, reformation has been prepared until it was executed by Pope Paul VI. Many changes have been made that swayed from the Sacred Tradition such as the religious freedom, removing the minor orders in the Holy Orders and mostly, changes in the Holy Mass which is the promulgation of the Novus Ordo Missale (New Order of Mass). Many bishops and clergy are againts to this reform which results on institutions of Traditional Catholic Societies. While the Vatican II changes occurred in the church and to the faithful.

Madness by St. Anthony the Great

St. Anthony the Great is a 4th Century Christian Monk from Egypt, and was known as the Father of All Monks where his life is the inspiration of Christian Monasticism when St. Athanasius of Alexandria wrote his biography.

The influence of the Protestants (Part 2)

As the world changes, the modern times have arrived and so is the modernism. The Protestants, in order to pull many faithful to their sect, choose to adapt modernism which results in the birth of the Born-Again Christians together with its prosperity doctrine. Many modernists including the clergy, wish to adapt and unite with the protestants which resulted in the Second Vatican Council. During these changes there are protestant influences which the church adapts including the Novus Ordo Mass. In the first part of this article, we enlist the first three of the influence of the Protestants. In this second part we will add another three:

The influence of the Protestants (Part 1)

If you are born during and after the Vatican II council, you may not notice the influence of the Protestants among us Catholics. When Martin Luther attacked the problem and corruption in the Catholic Church. He has the chance to fix it, but instead, he left the church and created his own. He started to attack the church and teaches heresy to the people. Which he detoured the path of the poor souls of the faithful from the Lord. Then those who he influenced started to build their own churches, including King Henry VIII who was once a defender of the Catholic Church against the protestant reformation, instituted the Anglican Church because the Church does not support his divorce. Protestanism were not built because of God, but because of earthly and human desire. In short, these protestants or born-again churches are not built by God, but by man.

The Two Holy Masses

Now that the word about the Traditional Latin Mass or the Tridentine Mass has spread all over the world including the internet. There are questions that were frequently asked about these two Holy Mass, the Traditional Latin and the Novus Ordo Mass. Many were confused because of the information that was posted on the social media. As the Traditionalist such as Taylor Marshall and Archbishop Schneider explained the errors of the New Mass, the modernist such as the Vatican and some of the Priests defend the Novus Ordo Mass and criticized the Traditional Mass. We've been posting articles about the Traditional Latin Mass to educate our readers, but let's look at the point of view of some Traditionalist, modernist about these two Holy Mass and what is our view.

The Ad Orientem and the Versus Populum

In the Holy Mass, there is a long history of debate between the Catholics and the Protestants on where the priest has to face during the Holy Mass. Before the Vatican II council, the Priest always faces to the altar during the Holy Mass. This orientation is called "Ad Orientem". Then changes occurred on Pope Paul VI's Mass (Novus Ordo Mass) in 1969 where the Priest is now facing the congregation. This orientation is called "Versus Populum". The Traditional Catholics societies such as the Society of Pope Pius X (SSPX) and the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) still using the Ad Orientem as they celebrated the Traditional Latin Mass. Now, the debate is now between the Traditionalist and the Modernist. The question is, which is better? The Ad Orientem or the Versus Populum? Before we answer. Let's take a look of their history.

Why we should not leave the Catholic Church?

There's a recent news that more than 500 thousand of Germany's Catholics left the church. One of the main reasons is the attitude of the church towards sexual abuse which they seek justice. Second, they want a bigger role for women in the church. Third, acceptance of the LGBT and lastly, allowing divorce in the Church. These reasons are not only happening in Germany but also in other parts of the world. Many faithful wish to have another reform for these matters. But, is it right that we leave the church because of these scandals, crimes which involve some priest and then no actions were taken? Or we leave the church because it does not do what we wanted such as same-sex marriage and women clergy. Here is why we should not leave the church.
