The Great Comparison – The Old Mass V.S. The New Mass

 

Published on Jul 21, 2012

This comparison’s mission is to ultimately draw the stark reality between Mass as the saints have known it for hundreds of years and the modern version, as it is commonly celebrated (traditional variations excluded), which plagues Catholic parishes around the world. And hopefully spark an profound shock that kindles actions on the part of the laity and clergy to recover our lost patrimony!

50 years ago in the year 1969, the process of revising, updating, and reforming the Catholic Mass of the Roman Rite had finally reached its culmination. It was intended to be a renewal of the Catholic faith, increase the vigor of the Christian world, and most importantly become relevant to Modern man.

Now half a century later, it’s become apparent that the reform not only destroyed the Mass as it had been known since at least the 800s A.D. but had failed to achieve anything it set out to accomplish. Catholics are more faithless than ever and the Church is in the shadow of its former glory.

Efforts to reform the Mass to what it was have been met with resistance from Progressives inside the clergy. Faithful traditional laity are frowned upon by the vast droves of people comfortable with the current mess of affairs.

Under the leadership of Pope Benedict XVI, the old Mass has been allowed more generously and a newfound interest has been sparked in its celebration by a new generation of Catholics who’ve never known solemnity, reverence, and beauty.

This comparison’s mission is to ultimately draw the stark reality between Mass as the saints have known it for hundreds of years and the modern innovation, as it is commonly celebrated (traditional variations excluded), which plagues Catholic parishes around the world. And hopefully spark an profound shock that kindles actions on the part of the laity and clergy to recover our lost patrimony!
