Have you read the "Ottaviani Intervention" yet? This was written by multiple Cardinals, many of whom were the top theologians in Rome. Cardinals Ottaviani, Bacci, etc. This report tears apart the novus ordo's protestant, anti-Trent and neo-Catholic theology. No one can read this and come to any other conclusion except that the new mass is unorthodox, not Traditional, and anti-Catholic.
Apologies if it took me so long to read what you recommended. I have little free time and a lot of catechism to learn.
Yes, I finally got around to reading the Ottaviani Report and the The great Sacrilege.
The new liturgy has many problems and, I agree
, after reading this literature, that the new liturgy is the work of the devil or, at least, the work of very confused bishops.
I understood that the new liturgy uses subtle variations to dilute the unicity and kinship of Christ, the Apostolic succession and their teachings and, omits the concept of Sacrifice and uses nuances to allow for the faithful's individual interpretation of the Teachings of the Church. I do not possess sufficient command of English language to render concisely my understanding. This is the best that i can do.
Please note my complete agreement that the NO is harmful for our Faith, before continuing to read.
Now, unfortunately, I am ignorant of doctrine and dogma. This ignorance challenges my discovery of precise and direct violation of doctrines and dogma by the N.O. liturgy.
Even the introduction of female readers and altar girls, while indirectly rebuked in a Papal encyclica, is not forbidden in doctrine or in infallible doctrine. An other example would be offering the Body of Christ in the hand of the faithful... also this is not explicitly forbidden by any doctrine or dogma; indirect references can be found in doctors of the Church and Popes or other non binding documents, all very notable and authoritative, but none possessing the authority of infallibility or, at least, doctrine.
We all appreciate how canon and precepts can change, within the boundaries of our Faith, because these are mere administrative and spiritaul supports to the mission of saving souls. One other example is the great canonical difference in how the Pope has been elected through the centuries: by the state, by the people, by the cardinals; originally in a semy lay framework, then in a mixed framwork, finally in a fully clergy framework; also the procedures and regulations varied very greatly. Yet not Pope has ever later been declared an anti-Pope because of variation in the canonical framework of his election.
So, my challenge, does not lie in agreeing that the new liturgy hurts the Faith.
More precisely, my challenge lies in constructing a valid and verifiable, yet concise and easily understandable, instrument to save the souls of those whom I love.
It is futile to point the finger at those who like Vatican II and settle the problem by saying: "They will burn in hell, it's their problem". I love some who like Vatican II and I make it my
personal, not religious, responsibility to try to save them, even if belive that they do not need to be saved.
Also, my conviction is that it is always my responsibility to explain my ideas, not the listeners responsibility to understand them. Of course some listeners will be in good faith and truly do not understand my ideas while others will be in bad faith and will not want
to understand my ideas. But their good or bad faith is irrelevant to me. It only means that I must be all the more convincing so that my ideas become so evident, simple and clear that even those in bad faith will have to concede.
Unfortunately, the liturgy variation is not evident, not simple and not clear to understand.
Also, I cannot ask someone, even if in good faith, to read a whole book only to be convinced of my arguments. I did it, I followed your advice and it was helpful and I am grateful as it was convicing. Others will not accept to invest time only because I recommend them to do so.
This does not reduce in the least, in fact it only increases, my desire to save those whom I love.
Can anyone who possesses greater knowledge of doctrine and infallible teachings help me discovery precise
and direct violation
of doctrines and dogma, by the N.O. liturgy?
Please do not refer to books or articles, but only to specific doctrines and dogmas.
