A slightly different episode for you this week, as we’re not tackling a new topic, but getting some questions answered that some of our listeners and viewers asked about the recent set of episodes on the Novus Ordo Mass. Father Franks joined us to go a little deeper on questions of validity of the New Mass, why this rite is different than other rites the Church has had in the past, and bluntly, how does the Society of Saint Pius X have any authority in these matters?
In this episode, we’re tackling 1 question that is very often posed to our priests, so we decided to make a full episode on this one question – simply, it’s “Father, can I go this Mass or that Mass?” Or put another way, “Are all Latin Masses the same?”
On this episode, we’re talking with Fr. Paul Robinson, the Prior of Saint Isidores in Denver, Colorado, about the practical matters that Catholics should know about the Novus Ordo Mass. Over the last two episodes, we’ve looked at the inherent problems in this new formulation of the New Mass. Today, we’ll see what that means for us as Catholics. Do these problems mean that the New Mass is invalid? Or should we even be attending the New Mass, if we have the choice?
We’ll continue our discussion of the Novus Ordo Mass today with Fr. Paul-Isaac Franks, professor of Theology at Saint Marys College. Last time, we looked at the New Mass’s Ecumenical intent. Today, we’ll see how the New Mass is a direct expression of the New Theology that was condemned by Pope Pius XII. But this problematic theology came back in full force during the second Vatican council, and when the New Mass was developed, it drew on this new theology, putting aside much of the traditional theology contained in the Church’s Magisterium.
We’re starting our 4-episode look at the Novus Ordo Mass, which was introduced in 1969. We’ll be covering a different aspect during each of these episodes, today, looking at the New Mass, and how it was developed as an Ecumenical Rite. We know from previous episodes that the Church had pivoted in its relationship to other religions. But the New Mass is a striking example of this Ecumenist spirit – and Fr. Reuter will explain to us how nearly every change that was made was done to appease Non-Catholics.
With this episode, we’re starting our study of the period after the Second Vatican Council. Over the next twenty or so episodes, we’ll be diving into topics like the Novus Ordo Mass, Religious Liberty, Collegiality, the Hermeneutic of Continuity, Feenyism, Obedience and its Limits, Sedevacantism, Ecumenism, Infallibility, the new Canonizations, Supplied Jurisdiction, and much more. But today, we’ll start with the reforms that started to take place just after the Second Vatican Council. Father John-Mark McFarland will take us through the immediate aftermath of the council, and show us how the Council, and the “Spirit of Vatican II” meant an immediate overhaul, and deformation of everything in the Church.
We’re going to wrap up our discussion on the course of the Second Vatican Council today with Fr. MacGillivray by looking at the fourth and final Session of the Council, which took place in 1965. To do this, we’ll hone in 4 of the most important of constitutions that were passed, dealing with Religious Liberty, Divine Revelation, Ecumenism, and more. These documents mark a definitive shift in how the Catholic Church considered these important issues – and makes 1965 perhaps the most momentous year in the recent history of the Catholic Church. If you’ve seen last episode, you’ll be well equipped to identify the ambiguity and the “time bombs” in these documents that would shape the way the Catholic Church looks today.
