WHY THE LATIN MASS?

Pope St. Pius V, Quo Primum Tempore, July 14, 1570: “Now, therefore, in order that all everywhere may adopt and observe what has been delivered to them by the Holy Roman Church, Mother and Mistress of the other churches, it shall be unlawful henceforth and forever throughout the Christian world to sing or to read Masses according to any formula other than this Missal published by Us accordingly, no one whosoever is permitted to infringe or rashly contravene this notice of Our permission, statute, grant, ordinance, command, direction, indult, declaration, will, decree, and prohibition.  Should any venture to do so, let him understand that he will incur the wrath of Almighty God and of the blessed Apostles St Peter and St Paul."

A study of the propers and orations of the Traditional Mass versus the New Mass reveals a massacre of the Traditional Faith.  The traditional Missal contains 1182 orations.  About 760 of those were dropped entirely from the New Mass.  Of the approximately 36% which remained, the revisers altered over half of them before introducing them into the new Missal.  Thus, only some 17% of the orations from the Traditional Mass made it untouched into the New Mass.  What’s also striking is the content of the revisions that were made to the orations.  The Traditional Orations which described the following concepts were specifically abolished from the New Missal: the depravity of sin; the snares of wickedness; the grave offense of sin; the way to perdition; terror in the face of God’s fury; God’s indignation; the blows of His wrath; the burden of evil; temptations; wicked thoughts; dangers to the soul; enemies of soul and body.  Also eliminated were orations which described: the hour of death; the loss of heaven; everlasting death; eternal punishment; the pains of Hell and its fire.  Special emphasis was made to abolish from the New Mass the orations which described detachment from the world; prayers for the departed; the true Faith and the existence of heresy; the references to the Church militant, the merits of the saints, miracles and Hell. One can see the results of this massacre of the Traditional Faith from the proper of the New Mass.

   

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, 1439: “All these sacraments are made up of three elements: namely, things as the matter, words as the form, and the person of the minister who confers the sacrament with the intention of doing what the Church does.  If any of these is lacking, the sacrament is not effected.”

  

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Cantate Domino, 1441: “…the holy Roman Church, relying on the teaching and authority of the apostles Peter and Paul… uses this form of words in the consecration of the Lord’s Body: FOR THIS IS MY BODY. And of His blood: FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD, OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL TESTAMENT: THE MYSTERY OF FAITH, WHICH SHALL BE SHED FOR YOU AND FOR MANY UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.“

   

In Pope St. Pius V’s Decree De Defectibus, we find the same words repeated:

Pope St. Pius V, De Defectibus, chapter 5, Part 1: “The words of Consecration, which are the FORM of this Sacrament, are these: FOR THIS IS MY BODY.  And: FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD, OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL TESTAMENT: THE MYSTERY OF FAITH, WHICH SHALL BE SHED FOR YOU AND FOR MANY UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.  Now if one were to remove, or change anything in the FORM of the consecration of the Body and Blood, and in that very change of words the [new] wording would fail to mean the same thing, he would not consecrate the sacrament.”

Paul VI changed the very words of Christ in his Novus Ordo Missae. (the gall and audacity)

“For this is my body.  For this is the chalice of my blood, of the new and eternal testament.  It shall be shed for you and for ALL for the forgiveness of sin." (is what Paul wrote) 

The words “for you and for MANY unto the remission of sins” (Matthew 26:28); is what our Lord actually said. What's the difference? Night and day! Changing Jesus words invalidates the entire Mass, by adding, deleting or changing any words in our Lord's prayers. This is totally in schism with Catholic Church doctrine and dogma. Jesus’s blood is effective for the salvation of many (who believe in Him) not all men. ALL would mean there is salvation outside the Catholic Church. See page 8 on this site, "EENS". 

   

The Catechism of the Council of Trent, on the Form of the Eucharist, p. 227: “The additional words for you and for many, are taken, from Matthew and from Luke, but were joined together by the Catholic Church under the guidance of the Holy Ghost. They serve to declare the fruit and advantage of His Passion.  For if we look to its value, we must confess that the Redeemer shed His Blood for the salvation of all; but if we look to the fruit which mankind has received from it, we shall easily find that it pertains not unto all, but to many of the human race.  When therefor our Lord said: "For you, He meant either those who were present, or those chosen from among the Jewish people, such as were, with the exception of Judas, his disciples with whom He was speaking.  When He added, and for many, He was talking to the elect from among the Jews and Gentiles.  WITH REASON, THEREFORE, WERE THE WORDS FOR ALL NOT USED, as in this place the fruits of the Passion are alone spoken of, and to the elect only did His Passion bring the fruit of salvation.”

   

St. Alphonsus De Liguori, Treatise on the Holy Eucharist: “The words for you and for many are used to distinguish the virtue of the Blood of Christ from its fruits: for the Blood of Our Savior is of sufficient value to save all men (of good will) but its fruits are applied only to many, not to all, and this is their own fault…”

Paul VI  invited six "Protestant" theologians for their permission to make sure that his Novus Ordo Missae (New Order Mass) would not offend them. Sounds polite and accommodating, right?
