Novus Ordo Eucharist In Emergency?

  • I'm curious about views on whether grace is still received in a Novus Ordo eucharist.  Would you receive a host from a Novus Ordo Mass in an emergency?

    I understand the issue of irreverence and abuse of course.

    If dying and a Novus Ordo priest brought it to you would you refuse?

  • I would not, but I would receive absolution from a NO priest if I were in danger of death.  Receiving an NO communion is participation in the NOM.

    I consider NO priests to be doubtful but one may receive doubtful Sacraments in danger of death.

  • The fact that Satanists still steal NO holy communion, makes me think it is the body of Christ.

    So yes, I would receive the Eucharist from NO priest.

    Assuming proper form, matter, and intention, as well as a validly ordained priest, I can't see any reason the Novus Ordo communion could not be received.  Even Archbishop Lefebvre and, if I'm not mistaken, Bishop Williamson, asserted that the Novus Ordo is per se valid.  (There could be many per accidens exceptions.)

    I fail to see how material cooperation in the Novus Ordo apparatus, could trump reception of the sacrament at least in danger of death.  If one were dying, and the only Eucharist available, were from Eastern Orthodox schismatics or Oriental Orthodox (two different things), would he not receive?  (OTOH, there is no question as to whether Orthodox sacraments are valid --- or is there?)

    The only pitfall I can see, WRT "receiving doubtful sacraments", is that in receiving a doubtfully valid Eucharist, one is worshiping what is possibly a round cracker as Lord and God of the Universe, whereas when one receives absolution or extreme unction, there is no question of potential idolatry or artolatry.

    IMHO, at best it would be the same as making a spiritual communion. There would be graces in that. 
    At worst, you would receive under doubt which I think may be sinful.

  • I would reject even doubtlessly valid sacraments from heretics, even in danger of death.

    As far as I am aware, there is no recommendation to accept such.

    St. Hermenegild was in that situation and rejected.

    So you would die without valid sacraments, just because a heretic is administering them?

    Even baptism?

    Can't go there with you, sorry.  Even the pre-V2 Church allowed this.

    I am baptised (shortly before NO + conditional), and we got perfect contrition and spiritual communion.

    And yes, I prefer to follow the example of St. Hermenegild.

    I agree with you Marion.

    Yeah, it would bother my conscience too much. Just think what the devil could/would do with that! He'd start tempting you to despair, since you probably missed many Masses in your life due to lack of Tridentine Mass option. It's basically burning the single grain of incense to false gods, or when Rome demanded that +ABL say "just one" Novus Ordo Mass. Doing so would condemn your past life.

    Obviously you are.  I should have been more clear, that I had in mind a theoretical case, where a person would not have yet been baptized, desired to be, but had no one except a heretic to baptize him.

    The constant teaching of the Church, for many centuries now, if I'm not mistaken, is that anyone --- even an atheist --- can baptize in an emergency.

  • Thank you for bringing this topic up. It was one I also have thought about—a little story concerning this matter. Years ago, one of the independent priests who said mass at the current chape I attend had been ill for quite some time.

     In the last few days of his life, he was hospitalized.  A Novus Ordo priest came into his room and asked if he was a Catholic priest and wanted to receive Extreme Unction from him. He answered yes. The next day he passed away.  I have always found this story interesting. The Lord was working in ways that are not of our understanding.

    :facepalm:

    So you prefer to trust a handful of low-level, probably moronic, Satanists ... over theological considerations?

    To be honest, you don't hear a lot about Satanists stealing hosts of any kind anymore.  That's probably because they have their own line of Holy Orders from the many Satanists that have infiltracted the hierarchy.

    What are you talking about?  St. Pius X approved of Catholics in schismatic/heretic territories (e.g. Orthodox areas) who had no access to the Catholic Mass to receive the Sacraments from the Orthodox.

    It is the Catholic Church alone who has rights over the Sacraments, and the Church commands that the schismatics/heretics give them to Catholics ... not that they would be inclined to comply.  By receiving the Blessed Sacrament, moreover, you are preventing reception by a heretic/schismatic, who might otherwise receive.

    You are right, I read Marion’s post incorrectly. I thought he was referring to doubtful NO sacraments.
