Editorial Commentary


“[Saint Paul commands,] ‘Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the Traditions which you have been taught, whether by word [oral Tradition] or by our letter [written Tradition - Scripture]’ [2 Thessalonians 2:15]. From this it is clear that they did not hand down everything by letter [written Tradition - Scripture], but there is much also that was not written [oral Tradition]. Like that which was written [written Tradition - Scripture], the unwritten [oral Tradition] too is worthy of belief. So let us regard the Tradition [oral Tradition] of the Church also as worthy of belief. Is it a Tradition? Seek no further”  (Patriarch Saint John Chrysostom [b. Antioch, c. 347 A.D. - d. at Commana in Pontus on Friday, September 14, 407 A.D.], Patriarch of Constantinople [Thursday, February 26, 398 A.D. - Thursday, June 24, 404 A.D.], exiled from his See the 2nd time on Thursday, June 24, 404 A.D., Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church; Homilies on Second Thessalonians [A.D. 402]).


Doctrines on
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass


The Twenty-Second Session
Being the Sixth Under the Sovereign Pontiff, Pius IV,
Celebrated on the Seventeenth Day of September, MDLXII.

DOCTRINE ON THE SACRIFICE OF THE MASS

 
The Sacred and Holy, Ecumenical and General Synod of Trent - lawfully assembled in the Holy Ghost, the same Legates of the Apostolic Sec presiding therein--to the end that the Ancient, Complete, and in every part Perfect Faith and Doctrine touching the Great Mystery of the Eucharist may be retained in the Holy Catholic Church; and may, all errors and heresies being repelled, be preserved in its own purity; (the Synod) instructed by the illumination of the Holy Ghost, Teaches, Declares; and Decrees what follows, to be preached to the Faithful, on the subject of the Eucharist, considered as being a True and Singular Sacrifice.

CHAPTER I.

On the Institution of the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

Forasmuch as, under the former Testament, according to the testimony of the Apostle Paul, there was no perfection, because of the weakness of the Levitical priesthood; there was need, God, the Father of mercies, so ordaining, that another priest should rise, according to the order of Melchisedech, our Lord Jesus Christ, who might consummate, and lead to what is perfect, as many as were to be sanctified. He, therefore, our God and Lord, though He was about to offer Himself once on the altar of the cross unto God the Father, by means of his death, there to operate an eternal redemption; nevertheless, because that His priesthood was not to be extinguished by His death, in the last supper, on the night in which He was betrayed,--that He might leave, to His own beloved Spouse the Church, a visible sacrifice, such as the nature of man requires, whereby that bloody sacrifice, once to be accomplished on the cross, might be represented, and the memory thereof remain even unto the end of the world, and its salutary virtue be applied to the remission of those sins which we daily commit,--declaring Himself constituted a priest for ever, according to the order of Melchisedech, He offered up to God the Father His own body and blood under the species of bread and wine; and, under the symbols of those same things, He delivered (His own body and blood) to be received by His apostles, whom He then constituted priests of the New Testament; and by those words, Do this in commemoration of me, He commanded them and their successors in the priesthood, to offer (them); even as the Catholic Church has always understood and taught. For, having celebrated the ancient Passover, which the multitude of the children of Israel immolated in memory of their going out of Egypt, He instituted the new Passover, (to wit) Himself to be immolated, under visible signs, by the Church through (the ministry of) priests, in memory of His own passage from this world unto the Father, when by the effusion of His own blood He redeemed us, and delivered us from the power of darkness, and translated us into his kingdom. And this is indeed that clean oblation, which cannot be defiled by any unworthiness, or malice of those that offer (it); which the Lord foretold by Malachias was to be offered in every place, clean to his name, which was to be great amongst the Gentiles; and which the apostle Paul, writing to the Corinthians, has not obscurely indicated, when he says, that they who are defiled by the participation of the table of devils, cannot be partakers of the table of the Lord; by the table, meaning in both places the altar. This, in fine, is that oblation which was prefigured by various types of sacrifices, during the period of nature, and of the law; in as much as it comprises all the good things signified by those sacrifices, as being the consummation and perfection of them all.

CHAPTER II.

That the Sacrifice of the Mass is Propitiatory
Both for the Living and the Dead.

And forasmuch as, in this divine sacrifice which is celebrated in the mass, that same Christ is contained and immolated in an unbloody manner, who once offered Himself in a bloody manner on the altar of the cross; the holy Synod teaches, that this sacrifice is truly propitiatory and that by means thereof this is effected, that we obtain mercy, and find grace in seasonable aid, if we draw nigh unto God, contrite and penitent, with a sincere heart and upright faith, with fear and reverence. For the Lord, appeased by the oblation thereof, and granting the grace and gift of penitence, forgives even heinous crimes and sins. For the victim is one and the same, the same now offering by the ministry of priests, who then offered Himself on the cross, the manner alone of offering being different. The fruits indeed of which oblation, of that bloody one to wit, are received most plentifully through this unbloody one; so far is this (latter) from derogating in any way from that (former oblation). Wherefore, not only for the sins, punishments, satisfactions, and other necessities of the faithful who are living, but also for those who are departed in Christ, and who are not as yet fully purified, is it rightly offered, agreebly to a tradition of the apostles.

CHAPTER III.

On Masses in Honor of the Saints.

And although the Church has been accustomed at times to celebrate, certain masses in honor and memory of the Saints; not therefore, however, doth she teach that sacrifice is offered unto them, but unto God alone, who crowned them; whence neither is the priest wont to say, "I offer sacrifice to thee, Peter, or Paul;" but, giving thanks to God for their victories, he implores their patronage, that they may vouchsafe to intercede for us in heaven, whose memory we celebrate upon earth.

CHAPTER IV

On the Canon of the Mass.

And whereas it beseemeth, that Holy things be administered in a Holy manner, and of all Holy things this Sacrifice is the most Holy; to the end that it might be worthily and reverently Offered and Received, the Catholic Church instituted, many years ago, the Sacred Canon, so pure from every error, that nothing is contained therein which does not in the highest degree savor of a certain Holiness and Piety, and raise up unto God the minds of those that Offer [it]. For it is composed, out of the very words of the Lord, the Traditions of the Apostles, and the Pious institutions also of Holy Pontiffs.

CHAPTER V.

On the Solemn Ceremonies of the Sacrifice of the Mass.

And whereas such is the nature of man, that, without external helps, he cannot easily be raised to the meditation of divine things; therefore has holy Mother Church instituted certain rites, to wit that certain things be pronounced in the mass in a low, and others in a louder, tone. She has likewise employed ceremonies, such as mystic benedictions, lights, incense, vestments, and many other things of this kind, derived from an Apostolical Discipline and Tradition, whereby both the majesty of so great a Sacrifice might be recommended, and the minds of the Faithful be excited, by those visible signs of religion and piety, to the contemplation of those most sublime things which are hidden in this Sacrifice.

CHAPTER VI.

On Mass Wherein the Priest Alone Communicates.

The Sacred and Holy Synod would fain indeed that, at each Mass, the Faithful who are present should communicate, not only in Spiritual desire, but also by the Sacramental participation of the Eucharist, that thereby a more abundant fruit might be derived to them from this most Holy Sacrifice: but not therefore, if this be not always done, does It condemn, as private and unlawful, but approves of and therefore commends, those Masses in which the Priest alone communicates Sacramentally; since those Masses also ought to be considered as truly common; partly because the people communicate Spiritually thereat; partly also because they are celebrated by a public minister of the Church, not for himself only, but for all the Faithful, who belong to the Body of Christ.

CHAPTER VII.

On the Water that is to be Mixed
With the Wine to be Offered in the Chalice.

The holy Synod notices, in the next place, that it has been enjoined by the Church on priests, to mix water with the wine that is to be offered in the chalice; as well because it is believed that Christ the Lord did this, as also because from His side there came out blood and water; the memory of which mystery is renewed by this commixture; and, whereas in the apocalypse of blessed John, the peoples are called waters, the union of that faithful people with Christ their head is hereby represented.

CHAPTER VIII.

On not Celebrating the Mass Everywhere in the Vulgar Tongue;
The Mysteries of the Mass to be Explained to the People.

Although the Mass contains great instruction for the Faithful people, nevertheless, it has not seemed expedient to the Fathers, that it should be every where celebrated in the vulgar tongue. Wherefore, the ancient usage of each church, and the rite approved of by the holy Roman Church, the mother and mistress of all churches, being in each place retained; and, that the sheep of Christ may not suffer hunger, nor the little ones ask for bread, and there be none to break it unto them, the holy Synod charges pastors, and all who have the cure of souls, that they frequently, during the celebration of mass, expound either by themselves, or others, some portion of those things which are read at mass, and that, amongst the rest, they explain some mystery of this most Holy Sacrifice, especially on the Lord's days and festivals.

CHAPTER IX.

Preliminary Remark on the Following Canons.

And because that many errors are at this time disseminated and many things are taught and maintained by divers persons, in opposition to this Ancient Faith, which is based on the Sacred Gospel, the Traditions of the Apostles, and the Doctrine of the Holy Fathers; the Sacred and Holy Synod, after many and grave deliberations maturely had touching these matters, has resolved, with the unanimous consent of all the Fathers, to condemn, and to eliminate from Holy Church, by means of the Canons subjoined, whatsoever is opposed to this most pure Faith and Sacred Doctrine.


Canons on
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

The Twenty-Second Session
Being the Sixth Under the Sovereign Pontiff, Pius IV,
Celebrated on the Seventeenth Day of September, MDLXII.

CANONS ON THE SACRIFICE OF THE MASS

CANON I.  If any one saith, that in the Mass a true and real Sacrifice is not offered to God; or, that to be offered is nothing else but that Christ is given us to eat; let him be anathema.

CANON II.  If any one saith, that by those words, Do this for the commemoration of me (Luke xxii. 19), Christ did not institute the Apostles Priests; or, did not ordain that they, and other Priests should offer His own Body and Blood; let him be anathema.

CANON III.  If any one saith, that the Sacrifice of the Mass is only a sacrifice of praise and of thanksgiving; or, that it is a bare commemoration of the Sacrifice consummated on the Cross, but not a propitiatory sacrifice; or, that it profits him only who receives; and that it ought not to be offered for the living and the dead for sins, pains, satisfactions, and other necessities; let him be anathema.

CANON IV.  If any one saith, that, by the Sacrifice of the Mass, a blasphemy is cast upon the most Holy Sacrifice of Christ consummated on the Cross; or, that it is thereby derogated from; let him be anathema.

CANON V.   If any one saith, that it is an imposture to celebrate Masses in honour of the saints, and for obtaining their intercession with God, as the Church intends; let him be anathema.

CANON VI.   If any one saith, that the Canon of the Mass contains errors, and is therefore to be abrogated [abolished]; let him be anathema.

CANON VII.   If any one saith, that the ceremonies, vestments, and outward signs, which the Catholic Church makes use of in the celebration of Masses, are incentives to impiety, rather than offices of piety; let him be anathema.

CANON VIII.   If any one saith, that Masses, wherein the Priest alone communicates Sacramentally, are unlawful, and are, therefore, to be abrogated [abolished]; let him be anathema.

CANON IX.   If any one saith, that the Rite of the Roman Church, according to which a part of the Canon and the words of Consecration are pronounced in a low tone, is to be condemned; or, that the Mass ought to be celebrated in the vulgar tongue only; or, that water ought not to be mixed with the wine that is to be offered in the chalice, for that it is contrary to the institution of Christ; let him be anathema.


Editorial Commentary by Patriarch Jacobus Maria DeJesus, D.D.


Jesus Christ Instructing His Apostles
Before Sending them Out into the World

“And He [Christ] called the Twelve; and began to send them two and two, and gave them power [i.e. Ordained them Exorcists] over unclean spirits [Devils]” (Mark 6:7).

“The Apostles and their successors are God’s Vicars in governing the Church which is built on Faith and the Sacraments of Faith.  Wherefore, just as they may not institute another Church, so neither may they deliver another Faith, nor institute other Sacraments...”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 64, Article 2, Reply to Objection 3; emphasis added).

What was the purpose of this Session of the Roman Catholic Council of Trent on the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass, most especially its Canons, each of which contain the censure or penalty of anathema (automatic excommunication)?

The Council itself declared the reasons:

“And because that many errors are at this time disseminated and many things are taught and maintained by divers persons, in opposition to this Ancient Faith, which is based on the Sacred Gospel, the Traditions of the Apostles, and the Doctrine of the Holy Fathers; the Sacred and Holy Synod, after many and grave deliberations maturely had touching these matters, has resolved, with the unanimous consent of all the Fathers, to condemn, and to eliminate from Holy Church, by means of the Canons subjoined, whatsoever is opposed to this most pure Faith and Sacred Doctrine.”

Some of the heresies and apostasy found in 16th Century Church History have once again very clearly and very boldly been repeated, and continue to be repeated, even today in the second decade of the 21st Century.

Therefore, because ... many errors are at this time disseminated and many things are taught and maintained by divers persons, in opposition to this Ancient Faith, which is based on the Sacred Gospel, the Traditions of the Apostles, and the Doctrine of the Holy Fathers, it has become necessary to repeat the solution to these old 16th Century problems which arose most especially in the second half of the 20th Century, and which are still here today in the second decade of the 21st Century.


Jesuit Martyrs in 16th Century Protestant England

It is as if the Devils and Satan, along with their human agents, are wishing that all Catholics remain totally ignorant of Church History, most especially of the 16th Century Protestant revolt against the Roman Catholic Church by certain EX-Roman Catholic Archbishops, certain EX-Roman Catholic Bishops, certain EX-Roman Catholic Priests, and by certain EX-Roman Catholic members of Religious Orders.

WHY?  Because what happened during the 16th Century Protestant revolt against the Roman Catholic Church by certain EX-Roman Catholic Prelates and other EX-Roman Catholic Clergy and EX-Roman Catholic Religious, happened in the 20th Century and continues even to this 2nd decade of the 21st Century!

By giving all Roman Catholics of this 2nd decade of the 21st Century an opportunity to learn WHAT the Roman Catholic Church officially did, and HOW the Roman Catholic Church officially responded, in regard to the 16th Century Protestant anti-Catholic attacks against the UNCHANGEABLE Catholic Faith and the UNCHANGEABLE Catholic Traditional Liturgical Rites for Offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Administration of the Seven Sacraments back in the 16th Century, whatever modern-day frustrations, doubts, fears, anxieties, confusion, scandals, etc. exist with Roman Catholics, all of these can be, and should be, totally removed from all real Roman Catholics because the solutions to them are primarily the same today as they were in the 16th Century, with some additional solutions required because of the complicity of certain Popes, of many Cardinals, and of most Archbishops, and Bishops, and Priests, as well as by Synod Vatican 2 [Thursday, October 11, 1962 - Wednesday, December 8, 1965].


Church History is an Excellent Teacher
Church History Puts Today into Proper Perspective

The first law of history is not to dare to utter falsehood; the second, not to fear to speak the Truth” (Pope Leo XIII, Gioacchino Pecci [Wednesday, February 20, 1878 - Monday, July 20, 1903], “On the Opening of the Vatican Archives”, Saturday, August 18, 1883).

With Church History as an excellent teacher, please note that this 22nd Session of the Council of Trent did not take place until Monday, September 17, 1562, A.D.

To put things into proper perspective, it should be noted historically that there had already been 45  Protestant   Memorial Supper-Meals which had been made up (some of them revised several times by 1562!) and that the 46th Protestant Memorial Supper-Meal, which the Protestants used to replace what Jesus Christ had perfectly instituted, namely, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, saw the light of day in 1562, namely THE BOOK OF COMMON ORDER, which was the 2nd Updated Version of The Forme of Prayers which was used in Scotland and had been pieced together by an ex-Roman Catholic Priest, namely Father John Knox [c. 1505 A.D. - 1572 A.D.].

The point is that the Protestants had thrown out the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass (sound like something at your local catholic parish church?), beginning with the guiding force of the first EX-Catholic Priest, Father Martin Luther, O.S.A. [1483 A.D. - 1546 A.D.],  who had proposed a German “mass” as early as 1519 A.D., and who was taken at his word on Christmas Day, December 25, 1521 A.D., at Wittenberg by Andreas Rudolph Bodenstein [b. c. 1480 A.D. - d. 1541 A.D.], a.k.a. Carlstadt or Karlstadt, who appeared in the Castle Church without vestments and did a ProtestantMemorial Supper Meal “mass”, a.k.a. a ProtestantEvangelical Meal, without the Canon,  but, because of their vast experience, they had become "professional" ProtestantMemorial Supper Meal composers by 1562!

Please note the importance of Canons 6, 8, and 9 above because these Canons deal with anyone condemning and abolishing the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass - the penalty (censure) for doing this being anathema - automatic excommunication.

But this is exactly what the Protestants like Luther, Knox, Cranmer, etc., had accomplished - they had abolished the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass,   replacing it with their Protestant   Memorial Supper Meals which a few might have still called a "mass", although it was a "mass" in name only!


Fast Forward to the Second Half of the 20th Century!

Most especially during the 2nd half of the 20th Century, various 16th Century Protestantversions  of the  16th Century Protestant Memorial Supper Meals were updated, modernized, and synthesized by the Consilium

Consilium ad exequdam Constitutionem de Sacra Liturgia - Consilium for implementing the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy
of Synod Vatican 2 under the personal supervision of Pope Paul 6 which became Paul 6’s Novus Ordo Missae (NEW Order of mass), a.k.a. the NOR (Novus Ordo Rite - NEW Order Rite).

October, 1967

October, 1967, the Consilium ad exequdam Constitutionem de Sacra Liturgia - Consilium for implementing the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy - had completed a draft version for the revision and the ultimate total DESTRUCTION of the Missale Romanum - the liturgical book which contains all of the prayers and rubrics for the Mass Celebrant to use for Mass.

This version of the anti-Catholic Consilium  for the said revision, changes, and the ultimate total DESTRUCTION of the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass  was presented to the Synod of Bishops that happened to be meeting in Rome in October, 1967.

The Bishops of this Roman Synod attended the first public performance of this updated, modernized, synthesized  anti-Catholic, per se invalid and illegal, 16th Century Protestant Memorial Supper Meal, a.k.a. Protestant mass, in the Sistine Chapel.

When the Bishops of this Roman Synod were asked to vote on this updated, modernized, synthesized  anti-Catholic, per se invalid and illegal, 16th Century Protestant Memorial Supper Meal, a.k.a. Protestant mass,, the voting went as follows:

1)  71 Bishops voted placet (approved).

2)  43 Bishops voted non placet (not approved).

3)  62 Bishops voted iuxta modum (not pleasing).

4)  4 Bishops abstained.

In response to concerns of the Bishops, some minor changes were made to the text.


Letter to Pope Paul VI
Thursday, September 25, 1969

Attached to the Thursday, June 5, 1969 document - A Critical Study of the New Order of Mass, which was written by A Group of Roman Theologians - was a Cover Letter written by Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani and Antonio Cardinal Bacci to Pope Paul VI dated Thursday, September 25, 1969.

Rome, September 25, 1969

Most Holy Father,

Having carefully examined, and presented for the scrutiny of others [A Group of Roman Theologians], the Novus Ordo Missae prepared by the experts of the Consilium ad exequdam Constitutionem de Sacra Liturgia, and after lengthy prayer and reflection, We feel it to be Our bounden duty in the sight of God and towards Your Holiness, to put before you the following considerations:

1. The accompanying Critical Study of the Novus Ordo Missae, the work of a group of theologians, liturgists and pastors of Souls, shows quite clearly, in spite of its brevity, that if we consider the innovations implied or taken for granted, which may of course be evaluated in different ways, the Novus Ordo represents, both as a whole and in its details, a striking departure from the Catholic theology of the Mass as it was formulated in Session XXII of the Council of Trent. The “canons” of the Rite definitively fixed at that time provided an insurmountable barrier to any heresy directed against the integrity of the Mystery [i.e. the Catholic Mass].

2. The pastoral reasons adduced to support such a grave break with Tradition, even if such reasons could be regarded as holding good in the face of Doctrinal considerations, do not seem to Us sufficient. The innovations in the Novus Ordo and the fact that all that is of perennial value finds only a minor place, if it subsists at all, could well turn into a certainty the suspicion, already prevalent, alas, in many circles, that truths which have always been believed by the Christian people, can be changed or ignored without infidelity to that Sacred Deposit of Doctrine to which the Catholic Faith is bound for ever.   Recent reforms have amply demonstrated that fresh changes in the liturgy could lead to nothing but complete bewilderment on the part of the Faithful who are already showing signs of restiveness and of an indubitable lessening of faith. Amongst the best of the Clergy the practical result is an agonizing crisis of conscience of which innumerable instances come to our notice daily.

3. We are certain that these considerations, which can only reach Your Holiness by the living voice of both shepherds and flock, cannot but find an echo in Your paternal heart, always so profoundly solicitous for the Spiritual needs of the children of the Church. It has always been the case that when a law meant for the good of subjects proves to be, on the contrary, harmful, those subjects have the right, nay the duty of asking with filial trust for the abrogation of that law.

Therefore we most earnestly beseech Your Holiness, at a time of such painful divisions and ever- increasing perils for the purity of the Faith and the unity of the Church, lamented by You our common Father, not to deprive us of the possibility of continuing to have recourse to the fruitful integrity of that Missale Romanum of St. Pius V, so highly praised by Your Holiness and so deeply loved and venerated by the whole Catholic World.

Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani

Antonio Cardinal Bacci

(Emphasis added.)

What was the response?

The official Newspaper of the Pope, L'OSSERVATORE ROMANO, in the English edition of that time, claimed to know nothing of any such letter to Paul 6, or even of the Critical Study of the New Order of Mass.

Behind the scenes, Paul 6 asked the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, a.k.a. the Holy Office - Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office - of which Cardinal Ottaviani himself had been the Secretary (Prefect), and who had been replaced by Franjo Cardinal Šeper, to examine the document  A Critical Study of the New Order of Mass.

The anti-Catholic Infiltrators in it responded on Wednesday, November 12, 1969 that the document contained many affirmations that were:

“superficial, exaggerated, inexact, emotional and false” (Christophe Geffroy and Philippe Maxence, Enquête sur la messe traditionnelle (with preface by Cardinal Alfons Maria Stickler), p. 21).
On the contrary, even the most casual reading of this document - throughout the entire text, filled with specific facts and Historical Truths,  along with a defense of Catholic Tradition - which you can prove to your own satisfaction when you read the actual text of  - A Critical Study of the New Order of Mass.

The text proves its adherence to the authentic Apostolic Tradition of the Roman Catholic Church with specific, objective, and true factual statements which are in harmony with, along with some direct quotes from, the Doctrines and Canons on The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass by the Roman Catholic Council of Trent, Session 22, Monday, September 17, 1562, A.D.


The Role of Pope Paul 6

Some people have asked:

Why didn’t Pope Paul 6 intervene to stop all of the changes to the Mass?
The short answer is that Pope Paul 6 was part of the problem, not part of the solution!

For example, while the future Paul 6, Giovanni Battista Montini [Friday, June 21, 1963 - Sunday, August 6, 1978] was the Archbishop of Milan, he proposed the Novus Ordo Rite - Novus Ordo Missae - with all of its radical changes in his Lenten Pastoral of 1958.

This was two years after his 1956 meeting of  a delegation of four Anglican priests and a layman who stayed with him some ten days... the meetings were clandestine in the extreme... (Bernard C. Pawley [Archdeacon of Canterbury], and Margaret Pawley, Rome and Canterbury Through Four Centuries: A Study of the Relations Between the Church of Rome and the Anglican Churches 1530-1981, London & Oxford, 1974, ISBN: 9780264661230).

The Novus Ordo Rite, a.k.a. the Novus Ordo Missae, was written under the Holy Father’s [Paul 6’s) personal supervision! (John Carmel Cardinal Heenan [b. at Ilford, England on Thursday, January 26, 1905 - d. at Westminster, England, on Friday, November 7, 1975], Forward to the English translation of the Novus Ordo, November, 1969).

The Novus Ordo Rite itself declares that it is published by authority of Pope Paul VI.


Paul 6 with Jean Guitton

“I say that the intention of Paul VI, and the new liturgy which bears his name, was..... to bring the Catholic Mass, again I say, as close as possible to the [Protestant] Calvinist liturgy”.

(Jean Guitton, French philosopher and close friend of Pope Paul VI, in the radio program “Ici Lumiere 101,” broadcasted by Radio-Courtoisie, Paris, December 19, 1993, translated by Adrian Davies in Latin Mass, Winter 1995 [IV, 1], pp. 10-11.)
The position of the 6 active Protestant members of the CONSILIUM is summed up by Brother Thurian:
“This Novus Ordo Missae [NEW Order of Mass] is so profoundly Ecumenical that it is theologically possible for Protestants to celebrate the Lord’s Supper in the SAME WORDS.   The new simplified Offertory does NOT anticipate a sacrificial act [as it does in the Ancient Roman Rite] and therefore does away with the difficulty which the “old” Offertory [of the Ancient Roman Rite] presented to Ecumenical efforts.”
N.B.:   Protestants - by definition - do NOT believe the UNCHANGEABLE Catholic DOCTRINES on the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass  (a.k.a. the Ancient Roman Rite of the Catholic Church).

IF Protestants really believed these UNCHANGEABLE Catholic DOCTRINES on the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass, it would NOT have been necessary for the Roman Catholic Council of Trent to formally teach these UNCHANGEABLE Catholic DOCTRINES on the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass in Session 22 on Monday, September 17, 1562, A.D.

Likewise, it would NOT have been necessary for the Roman Catholic Council of Trent to formally issue all of its Canons - complete with the penalty (censure) of anathema (automatic excommunication latae sententiae) - against those who do NOT believe what the Roman Catholic Church teaches concerning the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass as found in the Ancient Roman Rite of the Catholic Church.

How do other Protestants view the Novus Ordo Rite of mass?  Here is a representative example:

“...nothing in the renewed [i.e. the NOR - the NEW Order] mass need really trouble the Evangelical Protestant.”  (M.G. Siegvalt, Protestant Professor of Dogmatic Theology, Strasbourg.)

Photo Taken on Friday, April 10, 1970 A.D. in the Vatican

The SIX PROTESTANTS who gave their input in making up the NEW mass are, from left to right:

1) Dr. George;
2) Canon Jasper;
3) Dr. Shephard;
4) Dr. Konneth;
5) Dr. Smith;
6) Brother Max Thurian (in white), who is standing next to Pope Paul 6 (in white).
These SIX PROTESTANTS represent the following Protestant organizations: The World Council of Churches, the Church of England, the Lutheran Church, and the Protestant Community of Taize.

The updated, modernized, and synthesized anti-Catholic, per se invalid and illicit, 16th Century PROTESTANT Supper-Memorial-Meal

(which had its heretical theological sources in the infamous heretical Memorial Meals of the heretic John Scotus Eriugena  and of the heretic Berengar of Tours, which heresies were condemned by the Roman Catholic Church in the 9th and 11th Centuries)
the Novus Ordo Rite, which is now used in the United States and in many other countries as the NEW Mass, which Pope Paul 6, Giovanni Battista Montini [Friday, June 21, 1963 - Sunday, August 6, 1978], calls the Novus Ordo Missae, was made up in part by the very active SIX PROTESTANT members of the Synod Vatican 2 Consilium.

The Pope was obviously very proud of their work.  So proud in fact that he had his photo taken with them on Friday, April 10, 1970 A.D., in the Vatican and is shown, in the photo below, shaking the hands of these Protestants as a gesture of congratulations!

Therefore, it should be self-evident that since the so-called NEW mass of Paul 6 is, in reality, nothing more than a revised, modernized, and synthesized version of the anti-Catholic, per se invalid and illegal, 16th Century    Protestant   versions of the    Protestant   Memorial Supper Meals,  all of the above Doctrines and Canons on The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass by the Roman Catholic Council of Trent in Session 22 on Monday, September 17, 1562, A.D. likewise apply to this anti-Catholic, per se invalid - in ALL languages including Latin - and illicit/illegal, NEW mass of Paul 6 and to all of the many versions of the Novus Ordo Missae (NEW Order of mass), including all of those made up by Pope JP-2, the total number of which is unknown!

Therefore, is it any wonder that the Ancient Roman Rite of the Catholic Traditional Mass has been DESTROYED?!

Here is an admission by one of the Peritus (experts) at Synod Vatican 2:


Father Joseph Gelineau S.J.

The NEW mass:

is a different liturgy... This needs to be said without ambiguity:  The [Ancient] Roman Rite... no longer exists.  It has been DESTROYED!”
“Let those who like myself have known and sung a Latin-Gregorian High Mass remember it if they can.  Let them compare it with the Mass that we now have.  Not only the words, the melodies, and some of the gestures are different. To tell the Truth, it is a different liturgy of the Mass.  This needs to be said without ambiguity:  The [Ancient] Roman Rite as we knew it no longer exists [le rite romain tel que nous l'avons connu n'existe plus].  It has been DESTROYED  [il est detruit].  Some walls of the former edifice have fallen while others have changed their appearance, to the extent that it appears today either as a ruin or the partial substructure of a different building.  We must not weep over the ruins or dream of an historical reconstruction.”

(Father Joseph Gelineau S.J. [b. at Champ-sur-Layon, Maine-et-Loire, West-Central France, on Sunday, October 31, 1920 - d. at Sallanches, a commune in the Haute-Savoie  department in the Rhône-Alps, South-Eastern France, on Friday, August 8, 2008].

He was a Synod Vatican 2 “peritus” - expert - and was one of the most influential members of Archbishop Annibale Bugnini's Consilium, which composed the NEW Mass, who helped to make up the NOR - Novus Ordo Rite, a.k.a. the NEW mass, a.k.a. the “Novus Ordo Missae”.  Gelineau was obviously very proud of what he did, and a professional apologist for the NOR.  This quotation is from his book: “Demain La Liturgk”, Paris, 1976, pp. 9-10; emphasis added).


Some of the Excommunicated Modernist Heretics
Who Were at Synod Vatican 2

Some people have asked:

Why didn’t Synod Vatican 2 itself intervene to stop all of the changes to the Mass?
In addition to the fact that the Council Fathers would not go against what  Pope Paul 6 wanted - which was:
to bring the Catholic Mass, again I say, as close as possible to the [Protestant] Calvinist liturgy” (Jean Guitton, French philosopher and close friend of Pope Paul VI, in the radio program “Ici Lumiere 101,” broadcasted by Radio-Courtoisie, Paris, December 19, 1993, translated by Adrian Davies in Latin Mass, Winter 1995 [IV, 1], pp. 10-11.)
another reason is because it is a known fact that Synod Vatican 2 had a number of NEW Theology Theologians who were Periti at Synod V-2, including the only Layman to be a Peritus at V-2
(Jean Guitton, Layman, a French philosopher and a close friend of Pope Paul VI),
and also including, but not limited to, these six clerics:

Six NEW Theology Theologians - Periti - Theological Experts
Who Advised the Bishops at Synod Vatican 2 - Left to Right:

Top Row:
1.  Fr. Hans Küng [b. 1928 - present?]
2.  Fr. Karl Rahner, S.J. [b. 1904 - d. 1984]
3.  Fr. John Courtney Murray, S.J. [b. 1904 - d. 1967]

Bottom Row:
4.  Cardinal Yves Congar, O.P. [b. 1904 - d. 1995]
5.  Fr. Edward Schillebeeckx, O.P. [b. 1914 - d. 2009]
6.  Cardinal Henri-Marie De Lubac, S.J. [b. 1896 - d. 1991]

The above collage shows six of the NEW Theology Theologians who were Periti at Synod V-2 according to Bishop Aloysius Wycislo:


Bishop
Aloysius John Wycislo

Pope Pius XII's encyclical Humani Generis had.... a devastating effect on the work of a number of pre-conciliar theologians.... theologians and biblical scholars, who had been under a cloud for years, surfaced as periti [theological experts who advised the Bishops] at Vatican II.

(Bishop Aloysius John Wycislo [b. at Chicago, Illinois on Wednesday, June 17, 1908 - d. on Tuesday, October 11, 2005],  Bishop of Green Bay, Wisconsin [Tuesday, April 16, 1968 - retired on Friday, June 17, 1983, his 75th birthday], Vatican Two Revisited; Reflections by One who was there, paperback edition published by Alba House on October, 1987; emphasis added.)

Wycislo specifically mentions Hans Kung, Karl Rahner, John Courtney Murray, Yves Congar, Edward Schillebeeckx, and Henri De Lubac as theologians who had been under a cloud of suspicion of heresy, and yet they were admitted as periti, i.e. theological experts, to Synod Vatican 2!

What kind of a theological expert is someone who has been under a cloud of suspicion of heresy?

How can such a person, who had been under a cloud of suspicion of heresy, have any credibility or be given any credentials?

How can such a person even claim to be a theological expert?

What is it that makes him a theological expert?  How can a person who has been under a cloud of suspicion of heresy be classified as an expert in anything, except for being an expert Heretic?

So also, HOW can a theologian - who had been under a cloud of suspicion of heresy - no less! - be considered a theological expert in Catholic Theology, especially Thomistic Theology, a.k.a. Scholastic Theology, as well as Scholastic Philosophy?

This is what is called a contradiction of terms in Scholastic Philosophy because:

“Truth cannot be Truth’s contrary”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Contra Gentiles, IV, 8)
since:
“what Truth can come from that which is false?”  (Ecclesiasticus  34:4)
for those who are:
“ever learning, and never attaining to the knowledge of the Truth” (2 Timothy 3:7).
Both Scholastic Philosophy and Scholastic Theology, a.k.a. Thomistic Theology, are required to be studied and taught, especially in Roman Catholic Seminaries, according to the Decrees of various Roman Catholic Popes as well as Roman Catholic Canon Law:


Pope Pius XII

31. If one considers all this well, he will easily see why the Church demands that future priests be instructed in philosophy according to the method, doctrine, and principles of the Angelic Doctor, [8] since, as we well know from the experience of centuries, the method of Aquinas is singularly preeminent both for teaching students and for bringing truth to light; his doctrine is in harmony with Divine Revelation, and is most effective both for safeguarding the foundation of the Faith, and for reaping, safely and usefully, the fruits of sound progress.  [9]”  (Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli [Thursday, March 2, 1939 - Thursday, October 9, 1958], Encyclical Humani Generis, On Human Origin, Concerning Some False Opinions Threatening to Undermine The Foundations of Catholic Doctrine, Wednesday, April 12, 1950, ¶ 31; emphasis added).
His Holiness, the Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Leo XIII “canonized”, so to speak,  the primacy of Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P. and Scholastic Philosophy in Catholicism where he wrote in part:


Pope Leo XIII

“While, therefore, We hold that every word of wisdom, every useful thing by whomsoever discovered or planned, ought to be received with a willing and grateful mind, We exhort you, Venerable Brethren, in all earnestness to restore the golden wisdom of Saint Thomas [Aquinas], and to spread it far and wide for the defense and beauty of the Catholic Faith, for the good of society, and for the advantage of all the sciences.

The wisdom of Saint Thomas, We say; for if anything is taken up with too great subtlety by the Scholastic Doctors, or too carelessly stated -- if there be anything that ill agrees with the discoveries of a later age, or, in a word, improbable in whatever way -- it does not enter Our mind to propose that for imitation to Our age.

Let carefully selected teachers endeavor to implant the doctrine of Thomas Aquinas in the minds of students, and set forth clearly his solidity and excellence over others. Let the universities already founded or to be founded by you illustrate and defend this doctrine, and use it for the refutation of prevailing errors.

But, lest the false for the true or the corrupt for the pure be drunk in, be ye watchful that the doctrine of Thomas be drawn from his own fountains, or at least from those rivulets which, derived from the very fount, have thus far flowed, according to the established agreement of learned men, pure and clear; be careful to guard the minds of youth from those which are said to flow thence, but in reality are gathered from strange and unwholesome streams”  (Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Leo XIII, Gioacchino Pecci [Wednesday, February 20, 1878 - Monday, July 20, 1903], Encyclical, “Æterni Patris”, On the Restoration of Christian Philosophy, Monday, August 4, 1879 A.D., ¶ 31; emphasis added).

Concerning Scholastic Theology, a.k.a. Thomistic Theology, the same Pope wrote:
“21.  Rightly, then, does the same [Pope] Sixtus V call theology (and here he is referring especially to Scholastic Theology) a Gift from Heaven, and ask that it be maintained in the schools and cultivated with great ardor, as being abundant in fruitfulness for the Church. [Footnote # 13. Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Sixtus V, Apostolic Constitution, “Triumphantis Ierusalem”].” (Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical, “Depuis Le Jour”, On the Education of the Clergy, September 8, 1899; ¶ 21; emphasis added).

“Is it necessary to add that the book par excellence in which students may with most profit study Scholastic Theology is the Summa Theologica of Saint Thomas Aquinas.  It is our wish, therefore, that professors be sure to explain to all their pupils its method, as well as the principal articles relating to Catholic Faith” (Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical, “Depuis Le Jour”, On the Education of the Clergy, September 8, 1899; ¶ 21-22; emphasis added).

He had also written on the subject of Scholastic Theology in a previous Encyclical:
“14. Later on, the doctors of the middle ages, who are called Scholastics, addressed themselves to a great work -- that of diligently collecting, and sifting, and storing up, as it were, in one place, for the use and convenience of posterity the rich and fertile harvests of Christian learning scattered abroad in the voluminous works of the Holy Fathers [of the Catholic Church]. And with regard, Venerable Brethren, to the origin, drift, and excellence of this Scholastic learning, it may be well here to speak more fully in the words of one of the wisest of Our Predecessors, [Pope] Sixtus V:
‘By the Divine favor of Him who alone gives the spirit of science, and wisdom, and understanding, and who though all ages, as there may be need, enriches His Church with new blessings and strengthens it with new safeguards, there was founded by Our fathers, men of eminent wisdom, the Scholastic Theology, which two glorious Doctors in particular, the Angelic Saint Thomas and the Seraphic Saint Bonaventure, illustrious teachers of this faculty, ....with surpassing genius, by unwearied diligence, and at the cost of long labors and vigils, set in order and beautified, and when skillfully arranged and clearly explained in a variety of ways, handed down to posterity.’
“And, indeed, the knowledge and use of so salutary a science, which flows from the fertilizing founts of the sacred writings, the sovereign Pontiffs, the Holy Fathers [of the Church] and the Councils, must always be of the greatest assistance to the Church, whether with the view of really and soundly understanding and interpreting the Scriptures, or more safely and to better purpose reading and explaining the Fathers [of the Church], or for exposing and refuting the various errors and heresies; and in these late days, when those dangerous times described by the Apostle are already upon us, when the blasphemers, the proud, and the seducers go from bad to worse, erring themselves and causing others to err, there is surely a very great need of confirming the Dogmas of Catholic Faith and confuting heresies”  (Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical, “Æterni Patris”, On the Restoration of Christian Philosophy, Monday, August 4, 1879 A.D.; ¶ 14-15; emphasis added).
Concerning the Heresy of Modernism on the subject of Scholastic Theology, one reads:


Pope Saint Pius X

“38. It remains for Us now to say a few words about the Modernist as reformer. From all that has preceded, it is abundantly clear how great and how eager is the passion of such men for innovation. In all Catholicism there is absolutely nothing on which it does not fasten. They wish Philosophy to be reformed, especially in the Ecclesiastical Seminaries.
[N.B.:  This was back in 1907 A.D.!  And this is what happened before, during, and especially after Synod Vatican 2.]
They wish the Scholastic Philosophy to be relegated to the History of Philosophy and to be classed among absolute systems, and the young men to be taught modern philosophy which alone is true and suited to the times in which we live. They desire the reform of Theology: rational theology is to have modern philosophy for its foundation, and positive theology is to be founded on the history of dogma.

As for history, it must be written and taught only according to their methods and modern principles. Dogmas and their evolution, mthey affirm, are to be harmonized with science and history. In the Catechism no Dogmas are to be inserted except those that have been reformed and are within the capacity of the people. m

[N.B.:  This is what happened after Synod Vatican 2 with the NEW catechism.]
Regarding Worship, they say, the number of external Devotions is to he reduced, and steps must be taken to prevent their further increasem
[N.B.:  This also happened after Synod Vatican 2.],
though, indeed, some of the admirers of symbolism are disposed to be more indulgent on this head. They cry out that ecclesiastical government requires to be reformed in all its branches, but especially in its disciplinary and dogmatic departments They insist that both outwardly and inwardly it must be brought into harmony with the modern conscience which now wholly tends towards Democracy; a share in ecclesiastical government should therefore be given to the lower ranks of the Clergy and even to the Laity and authority which is too much concentrated should be decentralized....

“41. If we pass on from the moral to the intellectual causes of Modernism, the first and the chief which presents itself is ignorance. Yes, these very Modernists who seek to be esteemed as Doctors of the Church, who speak so loftily of modern philosophy and show such contempt for Scholasticism, have embraced the one with all its false glamor, precisely because their ignorance of the other has left them without the means of being able to recognize confusion of thought and to refute sophistry. mTheir whole system, containing as it does errors so many and so great, has been born of the union between faith and false philosophy.

“42....Against Scholastic Philosophy and m[Scholastic] Theology they use the weapons of ridicule and contempt.  Whether it is ignorance or fear, or both, that inspires this conduct in them, certain it is that the passion for novelty is always united in them with hatred of Scholasticism, and there is no surer sign that a man is tending to Modernism than when he begins to show his dislike for the Scholastic Method.

Let the Modernists and their admirers remember the proposition condemned by Pius IX:

‘The method and principles which have served the Ancient Doctors of Scholasticism when treating of theology no longer correspond with the exigencies of our time or the progress of science.’ [Footnote # 22.  Pope Pius IX, “Syllabus of Errors”, Proposition 13.]
They exercise all their ingenuity in an effort to weaken the force and falsify the character of Tradition, so as to rob it of all its weight and authority. But for Catholics nothing will remove the authority of the Second Council of Nicæa, where it condemns those
‘who dare, after the impious fashion of heretics, to deride the Ecclesiastical Traditions, to invent novelties of some kind... or endeavor by malice or craft to overthrow any one of the legitimate Traditions of the Catholic Church’;
nor that of the declaration of the Fourth Council of Constantinople:
‘We therefore profess to preserve and guard the rules bequeathed to the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, by the Holy and most illustrious Apostles, by the Orthodox Councils [i.e. those Catholic Traditional Doctrinal Councils that are 100% faithful to the unchangeable Apostolic Tradition preserved by the Fathers and Doctors of the Catholic Church], both general and local, and by everyone of those Divine interpreters, the Fathers and Doctors of the Church.’
Wherefore the Roman Pontiffs, Pius IV and Pius IX, ordered the insertion in the Profession of Faith of the following declaration:
I most firmly admit and embrace the Apostolic and Ecclesiastical Traditions and other observances and Constitutions of the Church.’......
“45...And let it be clearly understood above all things that when We prescribe Scholastic Philosophy We understand chiefly that which the Angelic Doctor [Saint Thomas Aquinas] has bequeathed to us, and We, therefore, declare that all the ordinances of Our predecessor [Pope Leo XIII] on this subject continue fully in force, and, as far as may be necessary, We do decree anew, and confirm, and order that they shall be strictly observed by all.

In Seminaries where they have been neglected it will be for the Bishops to exact and require their observance in the future; and let this apply also to the Superiors of Religious Orders. Further, We admonish Professors to bear well in mind that they cannot set aside Saint Thomas [Aquinas], especially in Metaphysical questions, without grave disadvantage.....

“49...  For the future the Doctorate of Theology and Canon Law must never be conferred on anyone who has not first of all made the regular course of Scholastic Philosophy; if conferred, it shall be held as null and void” (Infallible Roman Catholic Pope, Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical  Pascendi Dominici Gregis, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907; emphasis added).

Because of these teachings by Infallible Roman Catholic Popes and Infallible Roman Catholic Doctrinal Councils, this begs the question:

WHY were the automatically excommunicated Modernist Heretics, a.k.a. the anti-Catholic NEW Theology Theologians, including Fr. Hans Kung, Fr. Karl Rahner, Fr. John Courtney Murray, Cardinal Yves Marie Joseph Congar, Fr. Edward Schillebeeckx, and Fr. Henri De Lubac, even permitted to attend Synod Vatican 2, let alone be accepted as periti - theological experts - who advised the Bishops of Synod Vatican 2?

When one considers the fact that the rules of Synod Vatican 2 forbade every theologian, who had ever been under suspicion of heresy, from being admitted to the Synod as a peritus, a theological expert, who advised the Bishops at Synod Vatican 2, the question becomes more grave.

Here is part of the answer:


Fr. Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli
a.k.a. 2nd Pope John 23rd
1st President of the NEW One World Order anti-Catholic Religion

Several Vatican insiders, on condition of anonymity, have all been consistent in claiming that back in the days when Fr. Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, the future Pope Roncalli (2nd Pope John 23rd), was a Seminary Professor, the Holy Office had maintained a dossier on him for many, many years.  This file included the statement that Fr. Roncalli was suspected of Modernism.

Modernism, of course, is a  heresy, refuted and condemned by Pope Saint Pius X.

So, in other words, the file was really saying that Fr. Roncalli was suspected of being a Modernist Heretic!

Of course, Pope Saint Pius X had issued an automatic excommunication of all heretics, most especially of Modernists  Heretics!

The file on Fr. Roncalli dated back to 1925 when Fr. Roncalli, who was known for his unorthodox teachings, was abruptly removed from his Professorship at the Lateran Seminary in mid-semester. Fr. Roncalli was accused of the Heresy of Modernism. Roncalli was shipped off to Bulgaria. This transfer to Bulgaria began his diplomatic career.


Ernesto Buonaiuti

Of particular concern to Rome was Fr. Roncalli's continuing close association with the defrocked priest Ernesto Buonaiuti [b. at Rome, Italy on April 24, 1881 - d. at Rome, Italy on April 20, 1946].  (Lawrence Elliott, I Will Be Called John, 1973, pp. 90-92.).

Ernesto Buonaiuti was excommunicated for the  Heresy  of Modernism on Sunday, January 25, 1925.

This formal Excommunication of Ernesto Buonaiuti for the Heresy of Modernism was repeated several times because in his works he had defended the Heresy of Modernism - in particular his Il programma dei modernisti (The Modernists' Program) of 1908, and his Lettere di un prete modernista (Letters from a Modernist Priest), also of 1908.

Upon becoming Pope, 2nd Pope John 23rd was asked if he would continue the policies of his predecessor, Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli [Thursday, March 2, 1939 - Thursday, October 9, 1958].  A Vatican insider claims that Pope Roncalli (2nd Pope John 23rd) answered:

“Think of what Pius XII would do and I will do the opposite”!
A Vatican insider claims that it was Jolly John (this is what the media called him) himself who personally appointed:
a number of pre-conciliar theologians.... theologians and biblical scholars, who had been under a cloud for years”,
as periti [theological experts who advised the Bishops] for Synod Vatican 2, despite the fact that the rules of Synod Vatican 2 forbade every theologian, who had ever been under suspicion, from being admitted to the Synod as a peritus, a theological expert, who advised the Bishops at Synod Vatican 2!

Obviously, this was most certainly the opposite of what Pope Pius XII would have done!

But then Pope Pius XII was NOT suspected of being an automatically excommunicated Modernist Heretic as was Pope Roncalli!

In addition, Pope Roncalli had obviously self-excommunicated himself because of his violation of the Coronation Oath of the Pope-Elect for permitting those suspected of Heresy to become periti at Vatican 2.

Finally, Pope Roncalli is also strongly suspected of not even being a Pope because of the Infallible Papal Bulla of Pope Paul IV! This fact might explain why, shortly before he died, apparently no one paid any attention to him when he allegedly screamed:


Stop the Council! Stop the Council!

(Pope Roncalli (2nd Pope John 23rd) on his deathbed.  Quoted in Kevin Haney, “The Stormy History of General Councils,” Latin Mass magazine, Spring 1995, attributed to Jean Guitton [b. at Saint-Étienne, Loire, in East-Central France on Sunday, August 18, 1901 - d. at Paris, France on Sunday, March 21, 1999]. The Council which Pope Roncalli (2nd Pope John 23rd) wanted stopped was Vatican 2.
Therefore, is it any wonder that Synod Vatican 2 is responsible for the epidemic of the anti-Catholic NEW Theology Theologians and the Heresy of Modernism which has run rampant in the church since Synod Vatican 2, and because of Modernism's heresy of evolution, has unleashed the never-ending changes of the changes of the changes of the changes of the changes?!


Bottom Line

The Doctrines and Canons on The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass by the Roman Catholic Council of Trent, especially the censures of anathema (automatic excommunication) in its Canons on The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, apply today to the heresies of the Synod Vatican 2 Consilium and its catholic and non-catholic members regarding the anti-Catholic and per se invalid in Latin and in all other languages, as well as illegal/illicit, NEW mass, a.k.a. the Novus Ordo Missae, a.k.a. the Novus Ordo Rite, as well as those who propagate(d) it and/or defend(ed) it, and/or use(d) it and/or require(d) its use.

This includes, but is not limited to:

Pope Paul 6
Pope JP-1
Pope JP-2
Pope Benedict XVI
Pope Francis I
as well as everyone else who continues to use, and/or to require the use of, one or more versions of  this anti-Catholic and per se invalid in Latin and in all other languages, as well as illegal/illicit, NEW mass, a.k.a. the Novus Ordo Missae, a.k.a. the Novus Ordo Rite.

First Bottom line:  Based upon the Canons on The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass by the Roman Catholic Council of Trent, especially the censures of anathema (automatic excommunication), the following statements are True Facts:

True Fact # 1.  All of the members of the Consilium of Synod Vatican 2 who voted for the NEW mass, were automatically excommunicated.

True Fact # 2.  All those who propagate(d) it and/or defend(ed) it, and/or use(d) it and/or require(d) its use in any one and/or more versions of it, e.g. Pope Paul 6, Pope JP-1, Pope JP-2, Pope Benedict XVI, and Pope Francis I, as well as everyone else!

This Prophecy obviously refers to the NEW Mass, the NOR - Novus Ordo Rite, Novus Ordo Missae, which, according to this Prophecy of Jesus Christ, is sealed with the words of Hell, having been made up under the influence of the enemy of souls and  - another way of saying: by human agents of Satan - which contains words which are odious in My Sight!

When Christ says that most of His Holy Priests will be the exception to using the NEW book for the Mass, the context seems to indicate that the number of Priests who do use the NEW book for the Mass will be very large, and that the number of His Holy Priests will be very tiny.


March 7, 1965
Automatically Excommunicated Modernist Heretic
and Automatically Excommunicated Apostate, pope paul 6 of the
anti-Catholic Satanic NEW World Order of the anti-Christ pseudo-church
First anti-Catholic Satanic NEW World Order non-Latin NEW mass
First anti-Catholic Satanic Novus Ordo Missae in Vernacular
By a Clone of anti-Christ in the anti-Christ pseudo-church

It is not only CRIMINAL, but HERETICAL, for anyone who would want to CHANGE the unchangeable Catholic Traditional Mass, the Canon of which Mass DOES NOT contain errors.

The penalty or censure for such an act is anathema, i.e. automatic excommunication from the Roman Catholic Church.

Popes, Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops, and other Prelates, as well as Priests, who are automatically excommunicated, immediately loose all of their power, authority, and jurisdiction and are no longer members of the Roman Catholic Church!


 
 
 


Infallible Pope Pius IV


Infallible Council of Trent

“If any one saith, that the Canon of the Mass contains errors, and is therefore to be abrogated [abolished]; let him be anathema [automatically excommunicated].” (Infallible Pope Pius IV with Infallible Council of Trent, Session 22, Monday, September 17, 1562, Canon 6.

popes automatically excommunicated by Canon 6:
Roncalli - 2nd John 23rd
Montini - Paul 6
Wyotya - JP-2


Second Bottom line:

True Fact # 3. This Infallible Doctrinal and Theological Truth was taught by the Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Saint Celestine I:
Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi.  [The Liturgical form of prayer becomes the standard of Faith.].   (Pope Saint Celestine I [Saturday, September 10, 422  - Tuesday, July 27, 432]).
This is sometimes shortened to simply Lex Orandi, Lex CredendiThe Law of Praying is the Law of Believing.  This simply means that you declare, by a public, exterior liturgical act of worship, both your own personal interior beliefs of your faith and your own personal interior worship of God, externally expressed in public worship ceremonies.  Thus, you pray what you believe and you believe what you pray.

But how can Catholics claim to believe what the Roman Catholic Church teaches in the Doctrines and Canons on The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass by the Roman Catholic Council of Trent Session 22 (Monday, September 17, 1562 A.D.), and yet attend the NEW mass, the Novus Ordo Missae of Paul 6, or any of its innumerable variations by JP-2, of the anti-Catholic church, the mass rite(s) of which have totally replaced and DESTROYED the Ancient Roman Rite of the Catholic Traditional Mass in ALL languages, including Latin!  This also proves the fallacy of the so-called indult Latin mass!

True Fact # 4. This is not only a contradiction of terms, but is also deceptive liturgical practices because:


Pope Leo XIII

“....how can hearts be united in perfect Charity where minds do not agree in Faith?”  (Leo XIII, Gioacchino Pecci [Wednesday, February 20, 1878 - Monday, July 20, 1903], Encyclical, Præclara Gratulationis Publicæ, The Reunion of Christendom, Wednesday, June 20, 1894, ¶ 20.)

Third Bottom line:

WHERE did all of the 16th Century Roman Catholics go after the EX-Roman Catholic Archbishops, Bishops, and Priests began to teach and to preach the variousProtestant  heresies?

WHERE did all of the 16th Century Roman Catholics go after the EX-Roman Catholic Archbishops, Bishops, and Priests began to use one of the various anti-Catholic 16th Century Protestant Memorial Supper Meals, which are anti-Catholic masses because Christ is present only Spiritually, not really, because there is no Transubstantiation?

True Fact # 5. Except for:

1)  The over 300 Roman Catholics who were selectively martyred for their Catholic Traditional Faith between 1534 A.D. - 1683 A.D., especially in England.
2)  Those Roman Catholics in England who refused to accept the changes to the Catholic Traditional Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  The First Prayer Booke of Edward VI, by the EX-Roman Catholic and the now Protestant Archbishop of Canterbury - Thomas Cranmer, which was in the new vernacular, took place on Whitsunday (White Sunday), a.k.a. Pentecost Sunday, June, 1549.

The very next day, a group of peasants in Devonshire forced their parish priest to restore the Catholic Traditional Mass.  A so-called people's army of about 6,000 had taken Crediton and about to take Exeter.  They demanded that the Catholic Traditional Mass be restored as before:

"We will not receive the new service because it is but like a Christmas game, but we will have our old service of Mattins, Mass, Evensong and Procession (Litany of Our Lady) in Latin...."

They also demanded that the Blessings of simple things should be restored, palms and ashes should be distributed at the accustomed times with all the ancient old ceremonies used heretofore by our Mother, the Holy Church (Cranmer had abolished these as superstitions.)  (Strype's Cranmer, Appendix XI, includes the 15 Articles of these Roman Catholic Faithful.)

Cranmer was insulted that ignorant peasants - Hob, Will and Dick - would dare to question his theology, not to mention his disgust by their demands.  His contemptuous reply stated:
"Oh, ignorant men of Devonshire and Cornwall, as soon as ever I heard your articles I thought you were deceived by some crafty papists to make you ask you wist not what.  You declare what spirit leadeth them that persuaded you that the Word of God is but like a Christmas game.  It is more like a game and a foolish play to hear the priest speak aloud to the people in Latin.  In the English service there is nothing but the eternal Word of God.  If it be to you but a Christmas game, I think you not so much to be blamed as the papistical priests who have abused your sincerity.  Had you rather be like pies or parrots that be taught to speak and yet not understand one word of what they say than be true Christians who pray to God in faith?"  (Jenkyns, Remains of Thomas Cranmer, Volume II, in which the entire very long and bitter letter of Cranmer is found.)
Because these Roman Catholic Faithful ignored this letter of Heretic Cranmer, he responded by using foreign mercenaries, primarily German Lutherans, to kill them.  One Roman Catholic historian, in writing about the martyrdom of these Roman Catholics who refused to accept the anti-Catholic CHANGES to the Catholic Traditional Mass by Heretic Cranmer, graphically describes what happened:
"The killing was indiscriminate.  Four thousand were shot down or ridden down or hanged before the men of Devon would accept, withouth enthusiasm, the exquisite prose of Cranmer."  (Hilaire Belloc [b. at La Celle-Saint-Cloud, France on Wednesday, July 27, 1870 A.D. - d. at Guildford, England on July 16, 1953], A History of England, Volume IV.)
Because heretics are liars against the unchangeable Truths of the Holy Catholic Faith, one should not be surprised to find that Heretic Cranmer also lied by claiming that the Catholic Faithful did not understand the Mass in Latin.  Why?

During the 16th Century Protestant rampage by Heretic Cranmer, and others, against everything Catholic, in England at least a quarter of a million liturgical books were destroyed, not to mention huge numbers of other types of Catholic books.  Many of these books were of a devotional and instructional nature and written in English.  In 1550, a year after Cranmer's first English mass service book, Cranmer sent commissioners to the universites to destroy thousands of Catholic books, e.g. in Oxford, Cambridge, etc.

This is somewhat similar to the historical fact that in the United States, for example, as early as 1806, a small size Missal for the Catholic Laity contained an English translation of the prayers of the Mass in the left column which was printed right next to the original Latin in the right column.  A number of different companies printed Missals like this up to the time of the changes by Synod Vatican 2 and Paul 6 to the Mass in 1969!

Therefore, it was a blatant LIE, especially in the late 1950's and 1960's for anyone to claim - especially those who wanted the changes - that the Catholic Laity never knew exactly what the Priest was saying in Latin - the English translation was always next to the Latin original in many small Missals, while other such Missals contained only an English translation without the Latin!

3)  The unknown numbers of Roman Catholics who went underground into the 16th Century Catacombs to attend real and valid Catholic Masses and to receive real and valid Catholic Sacraments Offered and Administered by a relatively small handful of Roman Catholic Priests who were smuggled into England from France.
The vast majority of Roman Catholics still continued to go to their local Roman Catholic church buildings, even though these same Roman Catholic church buildings, along with their same Roman Catholic Priests and Bishops and Archbishops, were now no longer Roman Catholic Laics, Roman Catholic members of Religious Orders, and no longer Roman Catholic Clergy, but instead all of them had automatically become EX-Roman Catholic Laics, EX-Roman Catholic members of Religious Orders, as well as EX-Roman Catholic Priests, EX-Roman Catholic Bishops, and EX-Roman Catholic Archbishops, all of whom had automatically become - theologically, liturgically, ecclesiastically - de facto Protestants!

Decrees of Elizabeth I
Reign of Bloody Betty
[November 17, 1558 A.D. - March 24, 1603 A.D.]

After Elizabeth I's accession to the throne, the Act of Supremacy 1558 A.D. was enacted denying Papal authority.

Elizabeth I's government passed anti-Catholic decrees in 1571 A.D. which:

1)  Forbade anyone from maintaining the Jurisdiction of the Pope by word, deed or act.

2)  Required the use of the Book of Common Prayer in all cathedrals, churches and chapels, and forbade any criticism of it.

3)  Forbidding the publication of any Papal Bulla, writing or instrument of the Holy See (the death penalty was assigned to this).

4)  Prohibited the importing of Agnus Dei images as well as crosses/crucifixes, holy pictures, Rosary beads, or other things from the Bishop of Rome.

Later laws made the following activities illegal:
5)  To draw anyone away from the state religion of Protestantism.

6.  Non-Attendance at a Church of England church.

7. Raising children with teachers that were not licensed by an Anglican Diocesan Bishop.

8.  Attend or Offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass.

In 1585 A.D. a new decree was issued that made it a crime punishable by death to go overseas to receive the Sacrament of Ordination to the Catholic Priesthood.
In 1586 A.D., as a result of this immoral, anti-Catholic, invalid and illegal law, both Nicholas Devereux (who went by the alias of Nicholas Woodfen) and Edward Barber, were both executed under this law.

William Thompson and Richard Lea were hanged, disembowelled and quartered under this same immoral, anti-Catholic, invalid and illegal law.

In 1588 A.D., eight Priests and six Laymen at Newgate were condemned and executed under this same immoral, anti-Catholic, invalid and illegal law.

In other words, except for the 16th Century Holy Martyrs, some of whom are listed above, and except for those who went into the 16th Century Catacombs, and also except for others who publicly refused to accept the changes of the EX-Roman Catholic Clergy who were now Protestants, e.g. Protestant Archbishop Cranmer, the vast majority of Roman Catholics in England, Germany, etc. automatically became Protestants either because they were ignorant of what the Roman Catholic Church actually teaches, and/or because they had no clue that Roman Catholic Church dogmatic doctrines are not able to be changed.

Those Roman Catholics who accepted the changes of the EX-Roman Catholic Clergy, e.g. Protestant Archbishop Cranmer, apparently did not know that CHANGE is a red flag, which today should be considered a flashing red light, to warn everyone to totally avoid ANY changes to the UNCHANGEABLE Catholic Faith and the liturgical rites for Offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass and for Administering/Receiving the Catholic Traditional Sacraments.

All Catholics should remind themselves of these important Truths which can never be changed:

“But though We, or an Angel from Heaven, Preach a Gospel to you besides that which We have preached to you, let him be anathema.” (Galatians 1:8)

“In order to expose such snares, something which becomes necessary with a certain frequency in every Century, no other method is required than the following: Whenever it becomes necessary to expose statements which disguise some suspected error or danger under the veil of ambiguity, one must denounce the perverse meaning under which the error opposed to Catholic Truth is camouflaged.”(Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Pius VI, Giovanni Angelo Braschi [Wednesday, February 15, 1775 - Thursday, August 29, 1799], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Infallible Encyclical “Auctorem Fidei,” Thursday, August 28, 1794, ¶ 6; emphasis added).



Father Saint Vincent of Lerins

Magnopere curandum est ut id teneamus
quod ubique, quod semper, quod ab omnibus creditum est.

“Care must especially be had that that [Faith] be held, which was believed everywhere, always, and by all”  (Father Saint Vincent of Lerins [b. Toul, France, c. 400 A.D. - d. Island of Lerins, c. 450 A.D.], A Commonitory [an aid to memory] for the Antiquity and Universality of the Catholic Faith Against the Profane Novelties of All Heresies, Chapter 3; emphasis added).

“In an Epistle sent at the time to Africa, he [Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Saint Stephen I [Friday, May 12, 254 - Sunday, August 2, 257] laid down this RULELet there be no innovation - nothing but what has been handed down. For that holy and prudent man well knew that true piety admits no other rule than that whatsoever things have been faithfully received from our Fathers the same are to be faithfully consigned to posterity.

It is our duty to follow Religion, not to make Religion follow us. The proper characteristic of Christians is not to impose their own beliefs or observances upon posterity, but to preserve and keep what we have received from those who went before us. What then was the issue of the whole matter? What but the usual and customary one? Antiquity was retained, novelty [i.e. change] was rejected”   (Father Saint Vincent of Lerins, A Commonitory [an aid to memory] for the Antiquity and Universality of the Catholic Faith Against the Profane Novelties of All Heresies, Chapter VI, ¶ 16; emphasis added).

“Therefore, heresy is so-called from the Greek word meaning choice, by which each chooses according to his own will what he pleases to teach or believe.  But we are not permitted to believe whatever we choose, nor to choose whatever someone else has believed.  We have the Apostles of God as authorities, who did not themselves of their own will choose what they would believe, but faithfully transmitted to the nations the teaching received from Christ.  So, even if ‘an Angel from Heaven’ should preach otherwise, he shall be called anathemaX(Saint Paul, Epistle to the Galatians 1:8.)”   (Bishop Saint Isidore of Seville, Spain, [b. Cartagena, Spain 560 A.D. - d. Seville, Spain, 636 A.D.], Doctor of the Catholic Church, Etymologies, 8, 3; emphasis added).


CORONATION OATH OF THE POPE-ELECT

I VOW:

To change nothing of the received Tradition, and nothing thereof, I have found before me guarded by my God pleasing predecessors, to encroach to alter [change], or to permit any innovation therein;

To the contrary: with glowing affection as Her truly faithful student and successor, to reverently safeguard the passed on good, with my whole strength and utmost effort;

To cleanse all that is in contradiction with canonical order that may surface;

To guard the Holy Canons and Decrees of our Popes likewise as Divine Ordinances of Heaven, because I am conscious of Thee, Whose place I take through the Grace of God, Whose Vicarship I possess with Thy support, being subject to severest accounting before Thy Divine tribunal over all that I confess.

If I should undertake to act in anything of contrary sense, or should permit that it will be executed, Thou willst not be merciful to me on the dreadful day of Divine Justice.

Accordingly, without exclusion, We subject to severest excommunication anyone - be it Ourself or be it another - who would dare to undertake anything new in contradiction to this constituted Evangelic Tradition and the purity of the Orthodox Faith and the Christian Religion, or would seek to change anything by his opposing efforts, or would concur with those who undertake such blasphemous venture.   (Liber Diurnus Romanorum Pontificum, found in:  Jacques Paul Migne [b. Saint-Flour, France on Saturday, October 25, 1800 - d. Paris, France on  Sunday, October 24, 1875], Patrologiæ Latinæ Cursus Completus, published in 221 volumes [1862 - 1864], Volume 105, S. 54.  German translation by Dr. Werner Henzellek.  Translated from German into English by Josef Eldracher from the paperback book Vatican II, Reform Council or Constitution of a New Church, by Anton Holzer, page 343; emphasis added).

Please remember that it is a Mortal Sin of Perjury to break a Solemn, Public Oath of Office.  This means all Popes who broke their required CORONATION OATH OF THE POPE-ELECT automatically excommunicated themselves, in addition to however many Mortal Sins of Perjury they committed in the process!

Today, this means that ALL POPES who CHANGED the Catholic Traditional Faith, Mass, and Sacraments - in any way - this includes ALL of the Synod Vatican 2 Popes, who either CHANGED the Catholic Traditional Faith, Mass, and Sacraments - in any way - or who failed to condemn and to remove all such CHANGES, and/or who themselves have made use of, in any way, any of the changes to the Catholic Traditional Faith, Mass, and Sacraments, e.g. ALL of the Synod Vatican 2 Popes, who have failed to condemn and/or totally remove all of the heresies of Synod Vatican 2, and/or of any of their Synod Vatican 2 Pope-predecessors - and/or who have, and/or who continue to use, the NEW mass - the Novus Ordo Missae, in any of its many variations, whether in Latin, Italian, English, Spanish, etc., - and/or any/all of the NEW rites for the Administration of any of the Sacraments, automatically excommunicated themselves  by breaking their required  CORONATION OATH OF THE POPE-ELECT.  Plus, however many Mortal Sins of Perjury they committed in the process!


Who are the Synod Vatican 2 Popes?

1)  2nd John 23, Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli [Tuesday, October 28, 1958 - Monday, June 3, 1963] who convoked Synod Vatican 2 but also changed the rubrics for the missal and breviary on Monday, July 25, 1960, plus he inserted the name of Saint Joseph into the unchangeable Canon of the Mass.

2) Paul 6, Giovanni Battista Montini [Friday, June 21, 1963 - Sunday, August 6, 1978] for formally promulgating the Novus Ordo Missae in his apostolic constitution MISSALIS ROMANI, dated Thursday, April 3, 1969.

3)  JP-1, Albano Luciani [Saturday, August 26, 1978 - Thursday, September 28, 1978] who used the Novus Ordo Missae of Paul 6.  Was he going to restore the Old Mass before he was assassinated?  Only God knows for sure.

4)  JP-2, Karol Wyotya [Monday, October 16, 1978 - Friday, April 1, 2005] who not only used the Novus Ordo Missae of Paul 6 but made up his own, e.g. on Tuesday, May 8, 1984,  in Papua, New Guinea, he made up the NUDE NOR (Novus Ordo Rite) - one of but many versions of the per se invalid, in all languages, including Latin, Novus Ordo Missae!

5)  Benedict 16, Joseph Ratzinger [Tuesday, April 19, 2005 - Thursday, February 28, 2013], because he has used the Novus Ordo Missae of Paul 6 and sometimes the 2nd Missal of 2nd John 23.

6)  Francis 1, Jorge Mario Bergoglio [Wednesday, March 13, 2013 - present] uses the Novus Ordo Missae.

Today, now into the second decade of the 21st Century, it should be self-evident to everyone that the 16th Century demonic attacks against the unchangeable Catholic Traditional Faith, Mass, and Sacraments have been repeated, not by the EX-Roman Catholic Protestant Archbishop Thomas Cranmer, the EX-Roman Catholic Protestant Priest Martin Luther, etc., but in the 20th and 21st Centuries by the new EX-Roman Catholic and anti-Catholic Popes:  2nd John 23, Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli; Paul 6, Giovanni Battista Montini;  JP-1, Albano Luciani; JP-2, Karol Wyotya; Benedict 16, Joseph Ratzinger; and, Francis 1, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, ALL of whom automatically lost the Papal Office because of the automatic excommunication they put upon themselves when they took their Oath of Office which is known as the Coronation Oath of the Pope-Elect in which they vowed, before God, among other things:

To change nothing of the received Tradition, and nothing thereof, I have found before me guarded by my God pleasing predecessors, to encroach to alter [change], or to permit any innovation therein..... Accordingly, without exclusion, We subject to severest excommunication anyone - be it Ourself or be it another - who would dare to undertake anything new in contradiction to this constituted Evangelic Tradition and the purity of the Orthodox Faith and the Christian Religion, or would seek to change anything by his opposing efforts, or would concur with those who undertake such blasphemous venture.
Remember, the President of the United States of America, after he is voted to be the President of the United States of America by the voters, is the President-Elect.

But,  the President-Elect does NOT actually become the President of the United States of America UNTIL AFTER he actually takes the OATH of the Office of the President United States of America.

The same is also true for the Pope.  Even though he is elected the Pope, the Pope-Elect does not actually become the Pope UNTIL AFTER he actually takes the OATH of the Office of the Pope which is called the Coronation Oath of the Pope-Elect.

Of course it goes without saying that any elected Pope - i.e. any Pope-Elect - who DOES NOT take the OATH of the Office of the Pope, which is called the Coronation Oath of the Pope-Elect, is NEVER a Pope!

16th Century Parallels

Therefore, today, just as in the 16th Century, all of the local Roman Catholic parish church buildings, which had been Roman Catholic before the 16th Century Protestant revolt, were now all Protestant parish church buildings, and today they are all non-Catholic parish church buildings!

The same is true for the Roman Catholic Archbishops, Bishops, and Priests, who had been Roman Catholics who had Offered the valid Catholic Traditional Rite of Mass with Transubstantiation, and who had Administered the valid Catholic Traditional Rites for the Seven Sacraments, before the 16th Century Protestant revolt, these very SAME Roman Catholic Archbishops, Bishops, and Priests were no longer Roman Catholics because all of them were now all EX-Roman Catholic Archbishops, EX-Roman Catholic Bishops, and EX-Roman Catholic Priests because all of them were now PROTESTANT Archbishops, PROTESTANT Bishops, and PROTESTANT Priests, all of whom now used one of the various versions of the PROTESTANT Memorial Supper Meal (e.g. EX-Roman Catholic and now Protestant Priest, Martin Luther's Formula Missae of 1523; EX-Roman Catholic and now Protestant Archbishop Tom Cranmer's Second Prayer Book of Edward VI of 1552, EX-Roman Catholic and now Protestant Archbishop Tom Cranmer's Protestant mass with its Black Rubric which forbids kneeling:

for as concernynge the Sacramentall bread and wyne, they remayne styll in theyr verye naturall substaunces, and therfore may not bee adored, for that were Idolatrye to be abhorred of all faythfull christians. And as concernynge the naturall bodye and bloud of our sauiour Christ, they are in heauen and not here: for it is agaynst the trueth of Christes true naturall bodye, to be in moe places then in one at one tyme.  (Second Prayer Booke of Edward VI, Black Rubric, 1552.)!
True Fact # 6.  History repeated itself in the 20th Century with Pope Paul 6's anti-Catholic, updated, modernized, synthesized 16th Century Protestant Memorial Supper Meal mass.

Today, history still continues to repeat itself, not only with the NEW mass of Paul 6, and also with its many variations by JP-2, which are performed by EX-Roman Catholic Popes, EX-Roman Catholic Cardinals, EX-Roman Catholic Archbishops, EX-Roman Catholic Bishops, and EX-Roman Catholic Priests in church and chapel buildings which, before the changes to the unchangeable Catholic Faith, Catholic Traditional Rite of Mass and the Seven Sacraments, used to be found in the pre-Vatican 2, and pre-Paul 6, Roman Catholic Churches, but also with everything else - for example - forbidding kneeling for communion, as per the renewed Protestant Black Rubric of Tom Cranmer:

“The bishops of the United States have decided that the normative posture for receiving Holy Communion should be standingKneeling is NOT a licit [lawful] posture for receiving Holy Communion in the dioceses of the United States of America unless the bishop of a particular diocese has derogated from this norm in an individual and extraordinary circumstance.” (July, 2002 Newsletter of the United States Bishops’  Committee on the Liturgy).
Is it not wonderful how the United States Bishops are so concerned about YOU not committing the Mortal Sin of Idolatry by kneeling before ordinary bread and wine that, in imitation of the Black Rubric of Protestant Archbishop Cranmer, they forbid kneeling at communion because there is no Transubstantiation during any of the various versions of the Novus Ordo Missae, the NEW mass, in ALL languages - including Latin!
 

True Fact # 7. Those who have failed to learn the lessons of Church History are condemned to repeat them today with the EX-Catholic and anti-Catholic:  faith, mass, sacraments, and clergy!

In other words, most Roman Catholics today have automatically become non-Catholics  because  they continue going to what used to be their local Roman Catholic parish church building  run by what used to be their local Roman Catholic parish Priest  -   which today has become an anti-Catholic parish church building run by anti-Catholic parish Presidents of the Assembly who teach heresies (e.g. God is not in the punishment business; etc.) use one of the various, always changing, anti-Catholic rites for the anti-Catholic mass and anti-Catholic sacraments - all of which are per se invalid and illegal!

“Our predecessor, Benedict XIV, therefore, had good reason to write as his did:
‘This We asseverate:  that the majority of those who are condemned to eternal punishment fall into this everlasting misfortune through ignorance of these mysteries of the Faith which must necessarily be known and believed by all who belong to the elect’”  [Inst. 26: 18.] (Benedict XIV, Prospero Lambertini, [Wednesday, August 17, 1740 - Wednesday, May 3, 1758], quoted by Infallible Roman Catholic Pope, Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical ACERBO NIMIS, Saturday, April 15, 1905, ¶ 10.)


“ANATHEMA then appears as the more solemn form of pronouncing or declaring excommunication” (Rev. P. Chas. Augustine, O.S.B., D.D., A Commentary on the New Code of Canon Law, Volume 8, Canons 2255 & 2256, p. 170.)

ANATHEMA:  A thing or person struck by God’s malediction and intended for ruin.  Cf. I Cor. 12:13; Rom. 9:3; Gal. l:8-9.  Anathema, in actual Church discipline, is the term used for IPSO FACTO excommunication incurred by those denying a solemnly defined Truth, as is concluded principally from the dogmatic canons of the Roman Catholic Council of Trent and the Vatican Council, (i.e. the Roman Catholic Council Vatican I).  (Parente, Piolanti, Garofalo, Dictionary of Dogmatic Theology, “Anathema”.)



Notes on:

John Scotus Eriugena  [b. Paris, 810 A.D. - d. 877 A.D.] was an Irish teacher, theologian, philosopher and poet, the head of the palace school under Charles the Bald [b. 823 A.D. - d. Wednesday, October 6, 877 A.D.].

Berengar of Tours, a.k.a. Berengarius of Tours,  [b. 999 A.D. - d. 1088 A.D.], was a theologian who became the Archdeacon of Angers in 1039 A.D.

In Summary:

9th Century:

John Scotus Eriugena

John Scotus Eriugena attacked the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in about 847 A.D.  He taught that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is only a mere memorial meal which heresy was later used by the 16th Century Protestants and the 20th Century Modernists, NEW Theology Theologians, and anti-Catholic Infiltrators including the Communists, Illuminati, etc.

John Scotus Eriugena also taught that the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist is merely a symbol or a figure of Christ, NOT the Real Transubstantiated Presence of Jesus Christ -  this  heresy arose, at least in part, because he had actually partially revived the heresy of the old Manichæan Dualism (all matter is evil) of the 3rd Century.

851 A.D.:  Eriugena’s primary work, which the Church later condemned, was De Divisione Naturae [851 A.D.] in which he presented a large pantheistic system, thus causing him to be considered by some as the Father of anti-Scholasticism.

855 A.D.:  John Scotus Eriugena was condemned at the Council of Valence, a.k.a. Valencia, in 855 A.D. which called his heresies pultes Scotorum - the Scottish hodgepodge.

859 A.D. John Scotus Eriugena’s doctrine was condemned at the Council of Langres in 859 A.D.

877 A.D.:  John Scotus Eriugena was killed by his own pupils at a very advanced age in 877 A.D.

1225 A.D.: De Divisione Naturae was formally condemned by the Council of Paris in 1225 A.D.

11th Century:

Berengar of Tours, a.k.a. Berengarius of Tours

1049 A.D.:  Council of Rheims condemned Berengar as a heretic in 1049 A.D.

1050 A.D.: Pope Leo IX excommunicated Berengar at the Council of Rome in 1050 A.D.

1050 A.D.: Council of Rome condemned Berengar as a heretic in 1050 A.D.

1050 A.D.: Council of Vercelli condemned the heresy of Berengar in September, 1050 A.D.

1051 A.D.: Council of Paris condemned heretics Berengar and Bishop Eusebius Bruno.

1075 A.D.: Council of Poitiers condemned Berengar as a heretic in 1075 A.D.

1076 A.D.: Council of Saint Maixeut condemned Berengar as a heretic in 1076 A.D.

1215 A.D.: Pope Innocent III, with 4th Lateran Council, refuted Berengar's heresy.

“Innocent III crowned his eventful pontificate by convoking, in 1215, the Twelfth Ecumenical (Fourth Lateran) Council.... The Pope presided in person. In defining the Catholic doctrine of the Holy Eucharist against the heresy of Berengarius, the Council adopted the term Transubstantiation.” (Rev. J.A. Birkhaeuser, former professor of Church History and Canon Law, History of the Church, From its First Establishment to Our Own Times, Recommendation by James Cardinal Gibbons [b. at Baltimore, Maryland on Wednesday, July 23, 1834 - d. Thursday, March 24, 1921], Archbishop of Baltimore, May 18, 1888, pp. 380-381).
“The persecutions which the evil enemy [i.e. the Devil] has stirred up at various times against the most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass are a proof how sacred a thing it must be, and how obnoxious to the Devil; otherwise he would not attack it with such violence.  In the first ten centuries of the Christian Church teachers of heresy were indeed not wanting, but none of them ventured to assail the Mass, much less did they attempt to do away with it.  The heretic Berengarius of Tours was the first who presumed to speak and write against the Holy Mass.  His erroneous teaching was exposed and triumphantly refuted by the Catholic theologians of the day; it was, moreover, condemned by the General Council of the Church.” (Father Martin Cochem, Explanation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Second Edition, Benziger Brothers Publishers, Imprimatur, Michael Augustine, Archbishop of New York, June 24, 1896, Chapter I, pp. 19-21; emphasis added.)

For Those Who Prefer Details:


John Scotus Eriugena

It is quite possible that the first actual direct attack against the theology of the Catholic Mass came in about the middle of the 9th Century, when John Scotus Eriugena, [b. Paris, 810 A.D. - d. 877 A.D.], an Irish teacher, theologian, philosopher and poet, the head of the palace school under Charles the Bald [b. 823 A.D. - d. Wednesday, October 6, 877 A.D.], attacked the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in about 847 A.D.

How did this happen?

“It is not hard to trace the intellectual pedigree of this Irish thinker:  the two most philosophical of all the Fathers, Saint Augustine and Saint Gregory of Nyssa -- Neoplatonists both -- Saint Maximus the Confessor and, above all, the anonymous writer for so long called -- and thought to be -- Denis the Areopagite [a.k.a. pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite]” (Philip Hughes, A HISTORY OF THE CHURCH To the Eve of the Reformation by Volume 1: - 711; emphasis added).
Eriugena had translated the works of the 5th Century Neo-Platonic philosopher, pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite, from the Greek.  Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite was not an Athenian but a Syrian and not a contemporary of the Apostles as had been thought, but rather a monk of the late 5th Century.

As a matter of fact, the 5th Century Neo-Platonic philosopher, pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite, was not even a Catholic, but rather, although he was a convert from paganism, he was a Monophysite heretic. He was a contemporary of Proclus [411-485] and of the furious controversies which swirled in consequence of the Fourth Ścumenical Council, the First Council of Chalcedon [Sunday, October 8, 451 A.D. -  Wednesday, November 1, 451 A.D.].

It seems self-evident that the heretical neo-Platonism of Saint Augustine [with a residue as an ex-Manichaen heretic], Saint Gregory of Nyssa, Saint Maximus the Confessor, and, above all, of Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite, greatly influenced John Scotus Eriugena in an adverse way in regard to the teachings of the Catholic Church, especially about the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist!

Eriugena’s primary work, which the Church later condemned, was DE DIVISIONE NATURAE [851 A.D.] in which he presented a large pantheistic system, thus causing him to be considered by some as the Father of anti-Scholasticism.

In the 13th Century, the pantheism of  “De Divisione Naturae” was formally condemned. The Council of Paris [1225 A.D.] coupled the condemnation of Eriugena’s work with the previous condemnations [1210 A.D.] of the doctrines of Amalric of Chartres and David of Dinant, and there can be no doubt that the pantheists of that time were using Eriugena’s treatise.

Besides falling into the heresy of pantheism, John Scotus Eriugena also fell into other heresies in about 847 A.D.

These are found in his heretical attacks against the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. John Scotus Eriugena taught that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is only a mere memorial meal  which heresy was later used by the 16th Century Protestants and the 20th Century Modernists, NEW Theology Theologians, and anti-Catholic Infiltrators including the Communists, Illuminati, etc.

He also taught that the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist is merely a symbol or a figure of Christ, NOT the Real Transubstantiated Presence of Jesus Christ.

You will find proof for this where he wrote that:

“the Eucharist is the figure, the sign, and the pledge of the [i.e. not the real, or actual, or substantial] body of Christ” DE CORPORE ET SANGUINE DOMINI    (Jacques Paul Migne [b. Saint-Flour, France on Saturday, October 25, 1800 - d. Paris, France on  Sunday, October 24, 1875], Patrologiæ Latinæ Cursus Completus, published in 221 volumes [1862 - 1864], Volume CXXI, pp. 125-170.)
Bishop Jacques Benigne Bossuet, [b. at Dijon, France on Monday, September 27, 1627 A.D. - d. at Paris, France on Saturday, April 12, 1704 A.D.] was the Bishop of Meaux, France.  Bishop Jacques Benigne Bossuet states that this work of John Scotus Eriugena, i.e. De Corpore et Sanguine Domini, was:
“an ambiguous book, where certainly the author did not always understand himself” [Bishop Jacques Bénigne Bossuet, HISTORY OF THE VARIATIONS OF THE PROTESTANT CHURCHES, Book IV, no. 32.]; emphasis added).  This heresy was also utilized by the 16th Century Protestants and the 20th Century Modernists, NEW Theology Theologians, and anti-Catholic Infiltrators including the Communists, Illuminati, etc.
For the record, most probably the very first person to use the term “Transubstantiation” was Hildebert of Tours in about the year 1097 A.D.  John Scotus Eriugena denied the Mystery of the Transubstantiation in his book, cited above!  He was condemned at the Council of Valence, a.k.a. Valencia, in 855 A.D. which called his heresies pultes Scotorum - the Scottish hodgepodge.

That he exceeded the bounds of orthodoxy is the contention of Prudentius of Troyes and Florus of Lyons who answered the “Liber de Predestination” in works full of bitter personal attacks on Eriugena. Their views prevailed at the Council of Valence, a.k.a. Valencia, in 855 A.D. and at the Council of Langres in 859 A.D., in which John Scotus Eriugena’s doctrine was condemned.  John Scotus Eriugena was killed by his own pupils at a very advanced age in 877 A.D.

So, back in the 9th Century, John Scotus Eriugena had actually revived in part the heresy of the old Manichæan Dualism of the 3rd Century which heresy, in turn, was revived again in the 11th Century by Berengar of Tours, a.k.a. Berengarius of Tours, [999 A.D. -1088 A.D.], and in the 10th - 12th Centuries by the Dualistic Patarines of Milan,  also in the 12th Century by the Neo-Manichæans called the Albigensians,  then again in the 15th -16th Centuries by the Protestants, and eventually in the 20th Century by the Modernists, NEW Theology Theologians, and anti-Catholic Infiltrators including the Communists, Illuminati, etc.


Berengar of Tours, a.k.a. Berengarius of Tours

In about 1047 A.D., Berengar of Tours became involved in a Eucharistic controversy which went back to the 9th Century.

What had happened was that in 831 A.D., Abbot Saint Radbert Paschasius [b. at Soissons, France in 786 A.D. - d. at Corbie, France - a commune of the Somme department in Picardie in Northern France, c. 860 A.D.], the Abbot of Corbie, wrote a book on the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist to which he gave the title:  DE CORPORE ET SANGUINE DOMINI - On the Body and Blood of the Lord (which was published in 844 A.D.).

In his book, De Corpore et Sanguine Domini, Abbot Saint Radbert Paschasius taught the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist.  In other words, that in the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist, the bread (of which the host is made) is converted into the real, actual, substantial Body of Jesus Christ, the very same Sacred Body which was born of the Blessed Virgin Mary and which was crucified on Calvary.  In teaching this, he was following the teachings of  Patriarch Saint Ambrose [b. in Gaul, possibly at Trier, Arles, or Lyons in 340 A.D. - d. at Milan, Italy on Friday, April 4, 397 A.D.] Patriarch of Milan [374 A.D. - Friday, April 4, 397 A.D.], a Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church.

Ratramnus [b.   ?    -  d. c. 870 A.D.], who was a Frankish Monk of the Monastery of Corbie, the same Monastery of which Saint Radbert Paschasius was the Abbot, apparently met with Emperor Charles the Bald [b. at   on June 13, 823 A.D.  -  d. at    on October 6, 877 A.D.], Holy Roman Emperor [875 A.D.- 877 A.D.] - as Charles II, and King of West Francia [840 A.D. - 877 A.D.] - also as Charles II, with the borders of his land defined by the Treaty of Verdun in 843 A.D., who was the youngest Son of the Emperor Louis the Pious by his second Wife Judith.  This apparent meeting of the Monk Ratramnus with the Emperor happened when the Emperor visited the Monastery of Corbie in 843 A.D.

Emperor Charles the Bald had apparently asked Ratramnus for an explanation of the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist?  In any event, Monk Ratramnus wrote a book, which he also entitled De Corpore et Sanguine Domini, and addressed it to the Emperor Charles the Bald.  In this book, Ratramnus taught only a Spiritual Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist.

In other words, the Monk Ratramnus took the position that in the Holy Eucharist there is no conversion of the bread, but that although the Body of Jesus Christ is present, it is present only in a Spiritual way.

Hence the Monk Ratramnus' heresy denied the Doctrine of the Real Presence of Christ in the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist, which Doctrine later came to be called Transubstantiation  in about the year 1097 A.D.

In other words, the heresy of the Monk Ratramnus was that in the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist there is not the same Sacred Body of Christ as that born of the Blessed Virgin Mary and which was crucified on the cross at Calvary.

In the 16th Century, Ratramnus’ book De Corpore et Sanguine Domini once more became the center of controversy after it was printed in 1531 A.D.  Some EX-Roman Catholic clergy, who were now Protestants, considered this book to be a reply to the Roman Catholic Doctrine of Transubstantiation.

Ratramnus’ book was very influential in England where the EX-Roman Catholic Archbishop of Canterbury, Protestant Archbishop Thomas Cranmer, claimed to have been finally persuaded against Transubstantiation by it:

"Protestants came to emphasize the figurative interpretation of the eucharist in Ratramnus, which put him in line with their largely commemorative reading of this sacrament, while the Catholics were at pains to show that Ratramnus was nevertheless a faithful son of the church, that is: their Roman Catholic church."  (Willemein Otten, Between Augustinian Sign and Carolingian Reality: The Presence of Ambrose and Augustine in the Eucharistic Debate Between Paschasius Radbertus and Ratramnus of Corbie, p. 138).
This proves WHY at least some of the 16th Century Protestant leaders did NOT believe in the Real, Actual, and Substantial Presence of Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist - which, in theological terms, is called Transubstantiation.

Today, Protestantsstill do not believe in the Real, Actual, and Substantial Presence of Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist - which, in theological terms, is called Transubstantiation.

But remember:

“I say that the intention of Paul VI, and the new liturgy which bears his name, was..... to bring the Catholic Mass, again I say, as close as possible to the [Protestant] Calvinist liturgy”.
(Jean Guitton, French philosopher and close friend of Pope Paul VI, in the radio program “Ici Lumiere 101,” broadcasted by Radio-Courtoisie, Paris, December 19, 1993, translated by Adrian Davies in Latin Mass, Winter 1995 [IV, 1], pp. 10-11.)
In other words, the real intention of Pope Paul 6 was to bring the Catholic Mass - with its Real Presence of Jesus Christ, which is called, and otherwise identified in Catholic Theology with the term, - Transubstantiation - as close as possible to the ProtestantCalvinist liturgy which does NOT have the Real Presence of Jesus Christ - Transubstantiation - hence the anti-Catholic NEW mass of Paul 6 - the Novus Ordo Missae, the Novus Ordo Rite, IS an INVALID and ILLEGAL liturgical rite of mass   -   in plain English the NEW mass is NOT the Catholic Mass!

One of the reasons for the Roman Catholic Council of Trent was to teach the Holy Truths of the Catholic Faith, including the Dogmatic Doctrines on the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist (Session 13, Thursday, October 11, 1551 A.D.) and on the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Rite of the Mass Offered according to the Ancient Roman Rite of the Catholic Church (Session 22 Monday, September 17, 1562, A.D.).

Also in the 9th Century, John Scotus Eriugena took the position that the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist is merely a figure of the actual Body of Christ.  In other words, that the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist is only a memorial of the true Body and Blood of Christ.

Please keep in mind that in those days, the science of theology was in its infancy.  This simply means that theological language had not yet reached its technical perfection as it did later under the Scholastics, e.g. Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., when, in presenting a more thorough doctrine of Transubstantiation, the distinction between the identity quoad essentiam, and the identity quoad speciem, (the admission of a Sacramental presence, which is halfway between simply a natural presence and a purely symbolic presence), cleared away the confusion of the 9th and 11th Centuries, without, however, totally explaining a profound Infinite Divine Mystery which remains beyond the realm of the finite human mind.

So, this gives you some background data which explains why, in about 1047 A.D., Berengar of Tours based his teachings on the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist on the heresies of the 9th Century John Scotus Eriugena, a kind of kindred spirit, so to speak.

But his heresies were not limited to only the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist.  Rather, Berengar held erroneous opinions about the spiritual power, marriage, the baptism of children, and other points of doctrine. (Bernold of Constance, DE BERENGERII HAERESIARCHAE DAMNATIONE MULTIPLICI in Jacques Paul Migne, Patrologiæ Latinæ Cursus Completus, published in 221 volumes [1862 - 1864], CXLIX, 1456.  Also, Guitmond, De Corporis et Sanguinis Christi veritate in Eucharistiâ, in Jacques Paul Migne, Patrologiæ Latinæ Cursus Completus, CXLIX, 1429, 1480.)

Nevertheless, Berengar’s basic doctrinal concerns centered on the Holy Eucharist.  But, in order to better understand his heresies, please note that his teacher, Bishop Fulbert of Chartres, a.k.a. Fulbert de Chartres [b. between 952 A.D. and 970 A.D. - d. on Thursday, April 10, 1028 A.D.], who was the Bishop of the Cathedral of Chartres [1006 A.D. - Thursday, April 10, 1028 A.D.], considered his pupil - Berengar - to be an unsound and dangerous spirit.

Later, Berengar became a rhetorician with the vacillating mind of  a multifaceted eccentric.  It should be no surprise then to discover that Berengar had rationalistic tendencies and was a nominalist in his philosophy.

So, his thinking then goes like this:

Even in the study of the question of faith, reason is the best guide, but reason depends on, and is limited by, sense-perception.  Thus, since authority is not conclusive, one must reason according to the data of one’s senses.
Even more than the influence of John Scotus Eriugena, this erroneous philosophy is in large part the basis which explains why Berengar denied Transubstantiation.
N.B.: In c. 1097 A.D.: By Transubstantiation is meant the substantial conversion expressed by the term itself.  The term Transubstantiation itself was used for the first time by Archbishop Hildebert of Tours, a.k.a. Hildebert of Lavardin, a.k.a. Hydalbert, or Gildebert, or Aldebert  [b. c. 1055 - d. Monday, December 18, 1133], Archdeacon of Le Mans [1091 A.D.], Bishop of Le Mans [1096 A.D.] and Archbishop of Tours [1125 A.D.], in about the year 1097 A.D.

In 1215 A.D.:  “Innocent III crowned his eventful pontificate by convoking, in 1215, the Twelfth Ecumenical (Fourth Lateran) Council.... The Pope presided in person. In defining the Catholic doctrine of the Holy Eucharist against the heresy of Berengarius, the Council adopted the term Transubstantiation.” (Rev. J.A. Birkhaeuser, former professor of Church History and Canon Law, History of the Church, From its First Establishment to Our Own Times, Recommendation by James Cardinal Gibbons [b. at Baltimore, Maryland on Wednesday, July 23, 1834 - d. Thursday, March 24, 1921], Archbishop of Baltimore, May 18, 1888, pp. 380-381).

In c. 1272 A.D.:  “...the whole substance of the bread is changed into the whole substance of Christ's Body, and the whole substance of the wine into the whole substance of Christ's Blood. Hence this is not a formal, but a substantial conversion; nor is it a kind of natural movement: but, with a name of its own, it can be called Transubstantiation (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D. in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 75, Article 4).

Thursday, October 11, 1551:  “...immediately after the [Double] Consecration the true Body and Blood of our Lord, together with His Soul and Divinity, exist under the species of bread and wine”  (Roman Catholic Council of Trent, Session 13, Thursday, October 11, 1551, Chapter 3; emphasis added).

“The Priest consummates Transubstantiation solely by uttering the words of institution:  ‘..Christ..declared that to be truly His Own Body which He offered under the form of bread’ (cf. Matt. 26:26 ff; Mark 14:22 ff; Luke 22:19 f; 1 Cor. 11:24 ff; John 6:48 ff) it has...always been a firm belief in the Church of God, and this Holy Council now declares it anew, that by the [Double] Consecration of the bread and wine a change is brought about... This change the Holy Catholic Church properly and appropriately calls Transubstantiation”  (Roman Catholic Council of Trent, Session 13, Thursday, October 11, 1551, Chapter 4; emphasis added).

Canon 1.  If anyone denies that in the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist are contained truly, really and substantially the Body and Blood together with the Soul and Divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ and consequently the whole Christ, but says that He is in it only as in a sign, or figure or force; let him be anathema  (Roman Catholic Council of Trent, Session 13, Thursday, October 11, 1551; emphasis added).

Canon 2.  If anyone says that in the Sacred and Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist the substance of the bread and wine remains conjointly with the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and denies that wonderful and singular change of the whole substance of the bread into the Body and the whole substance of the wine into the Blood, the appearances only of bread and wine remaining, which change the Catholic Church most aptly calls TRANSUBSTANTIATION; let him be anathema  (Roman Catholic Council of Trent, Session 13, Thursday, October 11, 1551; emphasis added).

Thursday, January 6, 1870 A.D.:  “7. I profess that in the Mass there is offered to God a true, proper and propitiatory sacrifice for the living and the dead; and that in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist there is truly, really and substantially the Body and Blood, together with the Soul and Divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ; and that there takes place the conversion of the whole substance of the bread into His Body, and of the whole substance of the wine into His Blood, and this conversion the Catholic Church calls Transubstantiation”   (Twentieth Ścumenical Council of the Vatican, [Wednesday, December 8, 1869 A.D. - Monday, July 18, 1870 A.D.] Session 2, Thursday, January 6, 1870, Profession of Faith, ¶ 7).

For Berengar the question was:
“Is the Sacred Body of Christ present in the Holy Eucharist, and, if so, in what manner?”
To answer this question, Berengar appeals to various sources in addition to John Scotus Eriugena, e.g. Saint Ambrose [b. in Gaul, possibly at Trier, Arles, or Lyons in 340 A.D. - d. at Milan, Italy on Friday, April 4, 397 A.D.] Patriarch of Milan [374 A.D. - Friday, April 4, 397 A.D.], Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church, Saint Jerome, and Saint Augustine.

These Fathers of the Catholic Church teach that the Sacrament of the Altar, i.e. the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist, is the figure, the sign, the token of the Sacred Body and Precious Blood of Jesus Christ.  In their minds, these terms apply directly to what is external and sensible in the Holy Eucharist and do not, in any way, imply the negation of the Real Presence of the True Body of Christ, e.g. Saint Augustine, Sermon 143, #3.

For Berengar, the Body and Blood of Christ are really present in the Holy Eucharist, but this presence is ONLY an intellectual or Spiritual presence. The actual substance of the bread and the substance of the wine remain unchanged in their nature, but by Consecration they become ONLY spiritually - not substantially - the very Body and Blood of Christ. For Berengar, this Spiritual Body and Blood of Christ is the res sacramenti, while the bread and the wine are the figure, the sign, the token, i.e. the sacramentum.

It should come as no surprise to you then, that he would not get away with his erroneous teachings!  So it came about that there was a discussion with Berengar about his teachings on the Holy Eucharist with Hugues, Bishop of Langres, and Adelman écolâtre of Liège.  But, during this meeting, when Bishop Hugues of Langres informed Berengar that his teachings on the Mass and the Holy Eucharist were heretical, Berengar appealed to the authority of John Scotus Eriugena.  But such an appeal was fruitless because the Abbot of Le Bec, Abbot Lanfranc, [b. 1005 A.D. - d. 1089 A.D.], attacked as heretical the opinion of John Scotus Eriugena and defended the doctrine of Saint Radbert Paschasius.

So it came about that Berengar, in an attempt to defend his heretical opinion, wrote a letter to Abbot Lanfranc who received this letter in Rome where he had gone to take part in a Council at the Lateran. where it was read [1050 A.D.].

But, Pope Leo IX [Bruno, of the Counts Egisheim-Dagsburg, February 12, 1049 A.D. - Wednesday, April 19, 1054 A.D.], who had been advised of the extent to which the new heretical teaching was growing, determined that the vague condemnations against Berengar, which had been decreed in 1049 A.D. by the Council of Rheims, were not sufficient.

Therefore, Berengar was condemned by the Council of Rome of 1050 A.D. (a.k.a. the Lateran Council of 1050 A.D.), despite the fact that Cardinal Deusdedit attempted to defend Berengar!

(N.B.:  Church historians should know that at least one source, and possibly more than one source, is in error about the year 1078 A.D. as the year in which Cardinal Deusdedit [b. Todi, Italy in   ? A.D. - d. c. 1100 A.D.] took part in the Council of Rome.

Research indicates the actual year was 1050 A.D.

It is true that there were Roman Synods in 1078 A.D., but none of them were about Berengar.  For example, the one from Monday, February 24, 1078 A.D. to Sunday, March 3, 1078 A.D., under Pope Gregory 7th [Tuesday, April 22, 1073 - Monday, May 25, 1085] dealt with convoking an assembly of Roman Catholic Prelates and eminent men of Germany.)

Pope Leo IX formally pronounced the sentence of excommunication against Berengar at the Council of Rome in 1050 A.D.

Pope Leo IX also summoned Berengar to appear before a Council that would open at Vercelli in September, 1050 A.D. in order to give Berengar an opportunity to make a public retraction or, if possible, to explain his opinion in an orthodox sense.

Because King Henry I was the titular Abbot of Saint Martin of Tours, Berengar petitioned him for permission to go to the Council of Vercelli. Now it seems likely that it was at this time that the Conferences of Brionne and Chartres were also held in which Berengar unsuccessfully defended his opinions. (Cf. Durand of Troarn, LIBER DE CORPORE ET SANGUINE CHRISTI, xxxiii, in Jacques Paul Migne, Patrologiæ Latinæ Cursus Completus, published in 221 volumes [1862 - 1864], Volume CXLIX, # 1422).

The King, for reasons unknown, ordered Berengar to be imprisoned.  During his imprisonment, the Council of Vercelli of 1050 A.D. met in session and examined the teachings of Berengar.  Upon finding his teachings heretical, they condemned him and his heresies on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

But the imprisonment of Berengar did not last long. The Bishop of Angers, a city in Western France, about 190 miles Southwest of Paris, France, Eusebius Bruno [b.     ?    - d.  on Thursday, September 1, 1081 A.D.], was his disciple and supporter, and Geoffrey II, called Martel, a.k.a. the Hammer, who was Count of Anjou from 1040 A.D. to 1060 A.D., the Son of Fulk the Black, was a protector of Berengar.   Geoffrey Martel became a monk in Saint-Nicolas d'Angers in 1060 A.D.

In 1051 A.D.,  by order of King Henry I, a National Synod was held in Paris to judge both Berengar and Bishop Eusebius Bruno.  Neither was present, and both were condemned.

The Council of Tours was held before Wednesday, April 19, 1054 A.D.  It was attended by Cardinal Gerard and the Bishops of France.  It was convoked in the name of  Pope Leo IX (who died later on Wednesday, April 19, 1054 A.D.), by the monk Hildebrand (the future Gregory 7th) who presided over it as the papal legate.

Berengar felt that the Council would go against him.  So, he resolved to use every subterfuge and to invoke every right of appeal.  But, from the very beginning, Hildebrand gave him the choice of immediate recourse to the direct judgment of the pope or of letting the French council, assembled in the pope’s name, pass judgment on the main point at issue.  The whole assembly favored the latter alternative and desired to hear the heretic’s explanations.

During the proceedings, Berengar was called upon to declare, “yes” or “no”, whether he subscribed to the following proposition:

After the Consecration, the bread and wine of the Altar are the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.
Berengar, as he himself avowed, subscribed to this formula and swore that such was his faith, from the bottom of his heart.  But so much for oaths, because the heretic later revoked this declaration and distorted it while he pretended to explain it.  Thus began a confused series of affirmations and retractions which covered his career up to his last abjuration.

At yet another Council, this one held in Rome in 1059 A.D., Berengar was also physically present.  During this Council he again retracted his opinions, and again signed a Formula of Faith, which had been drawn up by Cardinal Humbert of Moyenmoutier, O.S.B. [b. c. between 1000 A.D. to 1015 A.D. - d. on Sunday, May 5, 1061 A.D.] who was the Cardinal-Bishop of Silva Candida, in which Berengar affirmed the real and sensible presence of the true Body of Christ in the Holy Eucharist. (Archbishop Gian Domenico Mansi of Lucca, a.k.a. Giovanni Mansi, [b. in Lucca on Saturday, February 16, 1692 A.D. - d. in Lucca on Wednesday, September 27, 1769 A.D.], an Italian Church Historian, who wrote a voluminous history of the Church Councils up to the Seventeenth Ścumenical Council, the First Council of Basel, Ferrara, Florence [Monday, April 9, 1438 A.D. - Thursday, August 7, 1445 A.D.], in 31 folio volumes, published in Florence and Venice between 1758 - 1798, SACRORUM CONCILIORUM NOVA ET AMPLISSIMA COLLECTIO, Volume XIX, 900.)

But, on his return home, Berengar attacked this formula.  Bishop Eusebius Bruno abandoned him, and Geoffrey III of Anjou, a.k.a. Geoffroy III d' Anjou [b.  in 1040 A.D. - d. in 1096 A.D.], called le Barbu - the Bearded, who was the Count of Anjou [1060 A.D. to 1068 A.D.], vigorously opposed him.

Berengar then appealed to Pope Alexander II, Anselmo Da Baggio, a.k.a. Anselm the Elder  [Tuesday, October 1, 1061 - Monday, April 21, 1073], who, although he did intervene on his behalf, also asked him to renounce his heretical opinions. But Berengar contemptuously refused to do this. At this time Berengar wrote his infamous DE SACRÂ COENÂ ADVERSUS LANFRANCUM LIBER POSTERIOR, the first book of which (which is now lost), had been written against the Council of Rome of 1059 A.D.

Once more he was condemned, this time by the Council of Poitiers of 1075 A.D., and by the Council of Saint Maixeut of 1076 A.D.  In 1078 A.D., by order of Pope Gregory 7th, Berengar came to Rome once again.  In another Council held in the Basilica of Saint John Lateran, Berengar once more signed a Profession of Faith in which he affirmed the conversion of the bread into the Body of Christ, born of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The following year, 1079 A.D., in yet another Council held in the Lateran, Berengar again signed a formula affirming the same doctrine, but in a more explicit way.  Berengar, on his return to Tours, again attacked the formula he had signed.

Finally, at the Council of Bordeaux of 1080 A.D., Berengar made a final retraction. He then retired into solitude on the island of Saint Cosme, where he died, apparently in union with the Roman Catholic Church?


This Prophecy obviously refers to the NEW Mass, the NOR - Novus Ordo Rite, Novus Ordo Missae, which, according to this Prophecy of Jesus Christ, is sealed with the words of Hell, having been made up under the influence of the enemy of souls and  - another way of saying: by human agents of Satan - which contains words which are odious in My Sight!

When Christ says that most of His Holy Priests will be the exception to using the NEW book for the Mass, the context seems to indicate that the number of Priests who do use the NEW book for the Mass will be very large, and that the number of His Holy Priests will be very tiny.

It is not only CRIMINAL, but HERETICAL, for anyone who would want to CHANGE the unchangeable Catholic Traditional Mass, the Canon of which Mass DOES NOT contain errors.

The penalty or censure for such an act is anathema, i.e. automatic excommunication from the Roman Catholic Church.

Popes, Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops, and other Prelates, as well as Priests, who are automatically excommunicated, immediately loose all of their power, authority, and jurisdiction and are no longer members of the Roman Catholic Church!

Catholics - Did You Know?

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the unbloody renewal of the bloody Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross, the Victim is one and the same.   (Pope Pius IV with Council of Trent, Session 22,  Monday, September 17, 1562, Chapter 2. De Fide - Unchangeable Dogma.)

Where in the Gospels does it say that, at the foot of the Cross, Saint John: dressed and acted like a clown, or a ventriloquist, or had an animal act, or danced, or acted like an idiot? Or that Our Blessed Mother, or Saint Mary Magdalen, or the Holy Women, or even Salome, danced around the foot of the Cross?  NOWHERE!

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is NOT a form of entertainment!

So, why do so many "catholic" churches today have

 
clowns,


ventriloquists,


dancers,

to entertain the audience?

Because their "fake New World Order pagan masses" are NOT the real Mass - no Victim of Sacrifice because it is NOT the unbloody renewal of the bloody Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross!


Judgement shall begin at the House of God.
(1 Peter 4:17)

The day is coming when this..abomination
will be severely punished by God!


Lift up thy hands against their pride unto the end;
see what things the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.
(Psalm 73:3)

“And  they shall defile the Sanctuary  of Strength,  and shall take away the Continual Sacrifice, and  they shall place there..the Abomination unto Desolation.”  (Daniel  11:31; emphasis added).

“When therefore you shall see the Abomination of Desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place:  he that readeth let him understand.... For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be.  And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved:   but for the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened.”  (Matthew 24:15; 24:21-22; emphasis added.):
