A Side-by-Side Comparison of
Three Different Liturgical Rites
Used for the Administration of
The Sacrament of the Holy Priesthood

“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).
“These latter days have witnessed a notable increase in the number of the enemies of the Cross of Christ, who, by arts entirely new and full of deceit, are striving to destroy the vital energy of the Church, and, as far as in them lies, utterly to subvert the very Kingdom of Christ. Wherefore, We may no longer keep silence, lest We should seem to fail in Our most Sacred Duty, and lest the kindness that, in the hope of wiser counsels, We have hitherto shown them, should be set down to lack of diligence in the discharge of Our Office (Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907, ¶ 1; emphasis added.)

Introduction

The Administration of the Sacrament of the Most Holy Priesthood is always done in Latin and always during the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Propitiatory Mass which is also always Offered in Latin.

The following English Translation is for those who are unable to read and/or understand Latin. 

Except for the Commentaries, Notes, and Statements, as well as the Rubrical Clarifications, and Additional Rubrical Directions, the entire English Translation of the original Latin text for the Administration of the Sacrament of the Holy Priest is based only upon the text of the Latin original as found in an 1891 edition of the Roman Catholic Pontificale Romanum and a few Prayers and Rubrics from a 1943 edition of the Missale Romanum, for the Prayers and Rubrics of the Catholic Trraditional Mass.

FROM Mileto Paule sent messengers to Ephesus, and called the elders of the congregacion.  Whiche when they were come to him, he said unto them. Ye know, that from the first day that I came into Asia, after what maner I haue been with you at all seasons, seruyng the Lord wyth al humblenes of mind, and wyth many teares and temptacions whiche happened unto me by the layinges awayt of the Jewes; because I wold kepe back nothing that was profitable unto you, but to shew you, and teach you openly throughoute euery house: wytnessing both to the Jewes, and also to the Grekes, the repentaunce that is towarde God, and the faythe whiche is toward our Lorde Jesus. And nowe beholde, I go bound in the Spirite unto Jerusalem, not knowinge the thinges that shall come on me there; but that the holy ghost witnesseth in euery citye, sayinge that bandes [imprisonment] and trouble abide me. But none of these thynges moue me, nether is my lyfe deare unto myself, that I might fulfyll my course with ioye and the ministracion of the word which I haue receiued of the Lord Jesu, to testifye the gospell of the grace of God. And nowe behold, I am sure that henceforth ye all (through whom I haue gone preachinge the kingdom of God) shall see my face no more. Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the bloud of all men. For I haue spared no labour, but haue shewed you all the counsaille of God. Take hede therefore unto your selues, and to all the flocke emonge whom the holy Ghost hath made you ouerseers to rule the congregacion of God, whiche he hathe purchased wyth hys bloud. For I am sure of this, that after my departing, shall greuous wolues entre in emong you, not sparing the flocke. Moreouer, of your owne selues shall men aryse, speakyng peruerse thynges, to drawe disciples after them. Therefore awake, and remembre, that by the space of three yeres, I ceassed not to warne euerye one of you nyght and daye, wyth teares.

The Consultation
with the People

The Ordaining Bishop, with his Mitre on, makes the following announcement to the Clergy and people:

Dearly beloved brethren, the captain of a ship as well as the passengers are in the same condition as to safety or danger. Their cause is common, therefore they ought to be of the same mind. 

Indeed, not without reason did the Fathers ordain that in the election of those who were to be employed in the service of the Altar the people also should be consulted. For it happens here and there that, as to the life and conduct of a Candidate, a few know what is unknown to the majority.

Necessarily, also, people will render obedience more readily to the Ordained if they have consented to his Ordination.

Now, with the help of the Lord, this (these) Deacon(s) are to be Ordained Priests. As far as I can judge, his (their) life has been of approved goodness and pleasing to God, and, in my opinion, merits for them promotion to a higher ecclesiastical honor. 

However, lest one or a few be mistaken in their judgment, or deceived by affection, We must hear the opinion of many. 

Therefore, whatsoever you know about his life (their lives) or character, whatsoever you think of his (their) worthiness, freely make it known. Testify as to his (their) fitness for the Priesthood according to merit rather than according to affection. 

If anyone has anything against him (them), before God and for the sake of God let him confidently come forward and speak. However, let him be mindful of his condition.

An Alternate Epistle

Not in ARR.

Or els this thirde Chapter, of the first Epistle to Timothe.

THIS is a true saying, If any man desire the office of a Bisshoppe, he desyreth an honest worcke. A Bishop therfore must be blamelesse, the husbande of one wife, vigilant, sober, discrete, a keper of hospitalitie, apte to teache; not geuen to ouermuche wyne, no fighter, nor gredy of filthy lucre, but gentle, abhorrynge fightinge, abhorryng couetousnes; one that ruleth well his owne house, one that hath children in subjeccion with all reuerence. For if a man can not rule his owne house, howe shall he care for the congregacion of God? He may not be a young skoler, leaste he swelle, and fal into the judgemente of the euil speaker. He must also haue a good report of them which are without; lest he fal into rebuke, and snare of the euil speaker.

Likewise must the ministers be honest, not double-tongued, not geuen unto muche wyne, nether gredy of filthy lucre; but holdyng the ministery of the faith, with a pure conscience; and let them first be proued, and then let them minister so that no man be able to reproue them.

Even so must their wyves be honest, not evil-speakers; but sobre and faithful in all thynges. Let the Deacons be the housbandes of one wife, and suche as rule their chyldren wel, and their own housholdes, for they that minister wel get themselves a good degre and great libertie in the Faith whiche is in Christe Jesu.

These thinges write I unto the, trusting to come shortly unto the, but, and if I tary long, that then thou maiest haue yet knowledge, howe thou oughtest to behaue thy selfe in the house of God, which is the congregacion of the liuing God, the piller and ground of truth. And without doubte, greate is that mistery of Godlines. God was shewed in the fleshe, was iustified in the Spirite, was seen among the Aungelles, was preached unto the Gentiles, was beleued on in the worlde, and receiued up in glory.

Election by the
Bishop and
Consent of
the People

Bishop: We rely on the help of the Lord God and our Savior Jesus Christ, and we choose this man, our brother, for priesthood in the presbyteral order.

All present say: Thanks be to God, 

or give their assent to the choice in some other way, according to local custom. 

Note:  The people can give their consent to the choice in some other way, according to local custom. 

Exactly WHO it is that is to determine exactly WHAT the proper procedure is that is to be used in the determination of exactly WHAT the local custom actually is, is not specified in the rite.  More typical ambiguity.

ARR:  4. The Consultation

ARR: 5. 
The Instruction

The Ordaining Bishop makes a short pause; then he addresses the following instruction to the Ordinand(s):

Dearly beloved, you are about to be Ordained to the Order of the Priesthood. Strive to receive it worthily, and having received it, to discharge its duties in a praiseworthy manner.

The Office of the Priest is to offer Sacrifice, to Bless, to govern, to preach, and to Baptize. 

Truly, it must be with great fear that you ascend to so high a station; and care must be taken that heavenly wisdom, an irreproachable character, and long-continued justice shall commend the Candidates chosen for it.

It is for this reason that the Lord, when commanding Moses to select from the whole people of Isræl seventy men to assist him, and to impart to them a share in the Gifts of the Holy Ghost, added this direction: Take whom thou knowest to be elders among the people. 

Now you have been typified by the seventy men who were elders, if, observing the Ten Commandments of the Law by the help of the Seven-fold Spirit, you will be a man (men) of virtue, mature in knowledge as well as in work. 

Under the same mystery and figure, the Lord chose in the New Testament seventy-two Disciples and sent them two by two, to go before Him, preaching. Thus He wished to teach by word and deed that the ministers of His Church should be perfect in faith and practice, in other words, that they should be grounded in the twin Virtue of Charity, namely, the Love of God and the Love of neighbor.

Therefore, endeavor to be such that, by the Grace of God, you may be worthy to be chosen as helpers of Moses and the Twelve Apostles, that is, the Catholic Bishops who are signified by Moses and the Twelve Apostles. Truly wonderful is the variety with which Holy Church is endowed, adorned, and governed. 

Its ministers are Ordained to various Orders, some Bishops, others inferior in rank, Priests and Deacons and Sub-Deacons; and out of many members distinguished as to dignity, the one Body of Christ is formed.

And so, Dearly Beloved, chosen by the judgment of Our brethren to be Our helpers in the ministry, maintain in your deportment inviolate purity and holiness of life.

Understand what you do, imitate what you administer.

Inasmuch as you celebrate the Mystery of the death of the Lord, you should endeavor to mortify in your members all sin and concupiscence. 

Let your doctrine be a Spiritual medicine for the people of God and the odor of your lives a delight for the Church of Christ. 

May you thus build up, by preaching and example, the house, that is, the Family of God, so that your promotion may not be a cause of damnation for me, nor the reception of so great an Office for you, but rather of reward. May He, by His Grace, grant it to us. 

R. Amen.

After this shalbe readde for the Gospell a pece of the last Chapiter of Mathewe, as foloweth.

JESUS came and spake unto them, saying: All power is geuen unto me in heauen and in earth. Go ye therefore and teache all nacions, Baptisyng them in the name of the father, and of the Sonne, and of the holy Ghoste. Teachyng them to obserue al thinges, whatsoeuer I have commaunded you.

Homily

Then all sit, and the bishop addresses the people and the candidate on the duties of a priest.  He may use these words:

To the people

This man, your relative and friend, is now to be raised to the order of priests.  Consider carefully the position to which he is to be promoted in the Church.

It is true that God has made his entire people a royal priesthood in Christ.  But our High Priest, Jesus Christ, also chose some of his followers to carry out publicly in the Church a priestly ministry in his name on behalf of mankind.  He was sent by the Father, and he in turn sent the apostles into the world; through them and their successors, the bishops, he continues his work as Teacher, Priest, and Shepherd.  Priests are co-workers of the order of bishops.  They are joined to the bishops in the priestly office and are called to serve God's people.

Our brother has seriously considered this step and is now to be ordained to priesthood in the presbyteral order. He is to serve Christ the Teacher, Priest, and Shepherd in his ministry which is to make his own body, the Church, grow into the people of God, a holy temple.

He is called to share in the priesthood of the bishops and to be molded into the likeness of Christ, the supreme and eternal Priest.  By consecration he will be made a true priest of the New Testament, to preach the Gospel, sustain God's people, and celebrate the liturgy, above all, the Lord's sacrifice.

To the candidate

He then addresses the candidate:

My son, you are now to be advanced to the order of the presbyterate.  You must apply your energies to the duty of teaching in the name of Christ, the chief Teacher.  Share with all mankind the word of God you have received with joy.  Meditate on the law of God, believe what you read, teach what you believer, and put into practice what you teach.

Let the doctrine you teach be true nourishment for the people of God.  Let the example of your life attract the followers of Christ, so that by word and action you may build up the house which is God's Church.

In the same way you must carry out your mission of sanctifying in the power of Christ.  Your ministry will perfect the spiritual sacrifice of the faithful by uniting it with Christ's sacrifice, the sacrifice which is offered sacramentally through your hands.  Know what your are doing and imitate the mystery you celebrate.  In the memorial of the Lord's death and resurrection, make every effort to die to sin and to walk in the new life of Christ.

When you baptize, you will bring men and women into the people of God.  In the sacrament of penance, you will forgive sins in the name of Christ and the Church.  With holy oil you will relieve and console the sick

[Note:  There is no mention of the dying!]

You will celebrate the liturgy and offer thanks and praise to God throughout the day, praying not only for the people of God but for the whole world.  Remember that you are chosen from among God's people and appointed to act for them in relation to God.  Do your part in the work of Christ the Priest with genuine joy and love, and attend to the concerns of Christ before your own.

Finally, conscious of sharing in the work of Christ, the Head and Shepherd of the Church, and united with the bishop and subject to him, seek to bring the faithful together into a unified family and to lead them effectively, through Christ and in the Holy Spirit, to God the Father.  Always remember the example of the Good Shepherd who came not to be served by to serve, and to seek out and rescue those who were lost.

The Prostration

IF no Sub-Deacons or Deacons have been Ordained, there now follows the touching ceremony of the Prostration. Each Ordinand (Candidate) for the Holy Priesthood goes to his pre-assigned place in the Sanctuary and Prostrates on the floor, i.e. lays flat with the front of his body on the floor, his arms folded at head level with the forehead resting on his folded arms. The Prostration is a sign of the unworthiness and the need of Divine assistance of each Ordinand.

Or elles this that foloweth, of the x. Chapiter of Jhon.

VERELY, verely, I say unto you, He that entreth not in by the doore into the Sheepe folde, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a Thefe and a Murtherer. But he that entereth in by the doore, is the Shepehearde of the Shepe, to hym the porter openeth, and the Shepe heareth his voice, and he calleth his own Shepe by name, and leadeth them out. And when he hath sent furth his owne Shepe, he goeth before them, and the Shepe folowe hym, for they knowe his voice. A straunger will they not folowe, but flye from hym: for they knowe not the voyce of straungers. Thys Prouerbe spake Jesus unto them, but they understoode not what thyngs they ware, which he spake unto them. Then saide Jesus unto them againe, Verely, verely, I say unto you, I am the doore of the Shepe. All (euen as many as came before me) are TheUes and Murtherers: but the shepe did not heare them. I am the doore, by me if any man entre in, he shalbe saufe, and go in and out, and fynde pasture. A Thefe cometh not but for to steale, kill and to destroie. I am come that they might haue lyfe, and that they might haue it more aboundauntly. I am the good shepehearde: a good Shepehearde geueth his life for the shepe. An hired servaunt, and he which is not the shepehearde (neither the shepe are hys own) seeth the wolfe coming, and leaueth the shepe, and fleeth, and the wolfe catcheth and scattereth the shepe. The hyred servaunt fleeth, because he is an hyred seruaunt, and careth not for the shepe. I am the good shepeherde and knowe my shepe, and am knowen of myne. As my father knoweth me, euen so knowe I also my father. And I geue my lyfe for the shepe.  And other shepe I have, which are not of this folde. Them also muste I bring, and they shall heare my voice, and there shalbe one folde and one shepehearde.

NOR:  6. 
Examination of
the Candidate

The candidate then stands before the bishop who questions him:

My son, before you proceed to the order of the presbyterate, declare before the people your intention to undertake the priestly office.

Are you resolved, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to discharge without fail the office of
priesthood in the presbyteral order as a conscientious fellow worker with the bishops in caring for the Lord's flock?

The candidate answers: I am.

Note:  The use of the term “office of priesthood” tends to give the impression, at first sight, that this rite is ok. 

On the contrary, when the entire rite is take in context, as a whole, especially a little further into this rite, you will note that nowhere else in the English translation of this “Roman Pontifical”, most especially NOT EVEN in the essential Form for this “sacrament”, is this phrase ever used again! 

Why not?  Logic forces one to conclude that this “church” has an hostile antipathy against this term:  “office of priesthood”!

Bishop: Are you resolved to celebrate the mysteries of Christ faithfully and religiously as the Church has handed them down to us for the glory of God and the sanctification of Christ's people?

Candidate: I am.

Note:  Does the above refer to the Sacrifice of the Mass? If so, how can the Novus Ordo Missae be of the mysteries of Christ that was handed down to us?

Bishop: Are you resolved to hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience as the Apostle urges, and to proclaim this faith in word and action as it is taught by the Gospel and the Church's tradition?

Candidate: I am.

Note:  It is an oxymoron, as well as the traditional Scholastic Philosophy “contradiction of terms”, to want to require the candidate “to proclaim this faith in word and action as it is taught by the Gospel and the Church’s tradition” because IF
this “church of the changes of
the changes of the changes of
the never-ending changes” really and honestly and sincerely is so concerned about “the Church’s tradition”, for example - it would NOT have
CHANGED any of the
Liturgical Rites for the Catholic
Traditional Mass and the
Catholic Traditional
Sacraments

Immediate case in point:

It would continue to use the Catholic Traditional Pontificale
Romanum - not this CHANGED version which fits in so snugly with the CHANGES it made to the Catholic Traditional Faith during Synod Vatican 2 and thereafter!

Note: An “oxymoron” is a figure of speech that combines contradictory terms.  In this case the contradiction here is what is called “newspeak” in which they say one thing and do something else. 

Thus, the rite says it wants the candidate to “to proclaim this faith in word and action as it is taught by the Gospel and the Church’s tradition”, while, at the same time, what they are doing is speaking these words, which are themselves empty of any real meaning, in this rite of priestly ordination which has
been CHANGED, and which
takes place in a rite of “mass”
which has been CHANGED into an updated, modernized, synthesized 16th Century Protestant memorial supper
meal which does not have
Transubstantiation

This is blatant deceit and
hypocrisy!

Bishop: Are you resolved to maintain and deepen a spirit of prayer appropriate to your way of life and, in keeping with what is required of you, to celebrate faithfully the liturgy of the hours for the Church and for the whole world?

Candidate: I am.

Bishop: Are you resolved to exercise the ministry of the word worthily and wisely, preaching the gospel and explaining the Catholic faith?

Candidate: I am.

Bishop: Are you resolved to consecrate your life to God for the salvation of his people, and to unite yourself more closely every day to Christ the High Priest, who offered himself for us to the Father as a perfect sacrifice?

Candidate: I am, with the help of God.

The Litany of
the Saints

The Ordaining Bishop, Mitre still on, takes Crozier in left hand, kneels on the predella, facing the Tabernacle, with his Faldstool in front of him on which he may lean for support and also on which he may place the Pontificale which is opened to the Litany of the Saints. 

Everyone else also kneels - at their places. 

The Ordaining Bishop begins chanting the Litany of the Saints in Latin. The Clergy in attendance, and the Choir if there is one, chant each response in Latin as each versical is chanted in Latin by the Ordaining Bishop.

And when he had so sayed, he shewed unto them hys handes and his side. Then wer the disciples glad, when they sawe the Lord. Then sayed Jesus unto them agayne, Peace be unto you.

Promise of
Obedience

Then the candidate goes to the bishop and, kneeling before him, places his joined hands between those of the bishop.  If this gesture seems less suitable in some places, the conference of bishops may choose another gesture or sign.

If the bishop is the candidate's own Ordinary, he asks: 

Do you promise respect and obedience to me and my successors?

Candidate: I do.

If the bishop is not the candidate's own Ordinary, he asks: 

Do you promise respect and obedience to your Ordinary?

Candidate: I do.

Bishop: May God who has begun the good work in you bring it to fulfillment.

Note:  NOR changed the sequence from where it is found in the ARR: 22.

ARR:  22. The Solemn Promise
of Obedience

Note how the NOR requires the Promise of Obedience from the Candidates to the Priesthood while they are still Candidates, not AFTER they have been ordained Priests.

This clearly indicates that AFTER the Candidates have been ordained, and are no longer Candidates, this Promsie of Obedience does not bind them!

The ARR has the newly Ordained Priest(s) make their Promise of Obedience AFTER they have been Ordained Priests.

Visite oure myndes, and into us thy heauenly grace inspyre;

That in all trueth and godlynesse, we maye haue true desyre.

Thou art the very comforter, in al woe and distresse,

The heauenly gift of god most high, which no tongue can expresse,

The fyre so bryght, the loue so clere, and Unccion spirituall.

In faithfull heartes writing thy lawe, the fynger of God's hande.

Accordyng to thy promes made, thou geuest speache of grace,

That through thy helpe, the praise of god may sound in euery place.

O holy gost, into our wittes, sende downe thyne heauenly lyght,

Kindle our heartes with feruent loue, to serue god daye and night.

Strength and stablishe all our weaknes, so feble and so fraile,

That neither flesh, the world, nor deuill, againste us doe preuayle.

Put backe our enemie farre from us, and graunt us to obtaine,

Peace in our heartes with God and man, withoute grudge or disdaine.

And graunt, o lorde, that thou being, our leader and our guide,

We may eschewe the snares of sinne, and from thee neuer slide.

To us such plentie of thy grace, good lord graunt, we thee praie,

That thou maiest be our comforter, at the laste dreadfull daye.

Of all stryfe and dissencion, O Lord, dissolve the bandes,

And make the knottes of peace and loue, throughout all Christen lands.

Graunt us, O lorde, through thee to know the father most of myght,

That of his deare beloued sonne we may attaine the syght:

And that with perfect faith also we may acknowledge thee,

The spirite of them both alwaye, one god in persons three.

Laude and prayse bee to the father, and to the sonne equall,

And to the holy spirite also, one God coeternall:

And pray we that the onely sonne vouchesafe hys spirite to sende,

To all that doe professe his name, unto the worlde's ende. Amen.

The Ordaining Bishop imposes both of his hands upon the top of the head of each Priestly Ordinand without any prayer.

Immediately after the Ordaining Bishop removes both of his hands from the top of the head of the Priestly Ordinand, the Priestly Ordinand, rises from the predella, turns around with his back to the Altar and to the Ordaining Bishop, and slowly walks down the Altar steps, solemnly walking to his assigned place in the Sanctuary, where he kneels down, facing the Main Altar.

After all of the Priests who are present have finished the imposition of their hands on the top of the head of each kneeling Priestly Ordinand, all of the Priests go to the  Altar steps on which they stand, on both the Epistle and Gospel sides of the Altar, and face the Priestly Ordinand(s).

Hear us, Lord our God, and pour out upon this servant of yours the blessing of the Holy Spirit and the grace and power of the priesthood.  In your sight we offer this man for ordination: support him with your unfailing love  We ask this through Christ our Lord.

R.  Amen.

Deacon: Let us stand.

Note:  Although the term “the grace and power of the priesthood” is used above, yet it is misplaced by being put before the matter of the sacrament which is the imposition of the bishop’s hands.

IF it was done later, it would otherwise better emphasize such an important action.

Note:  This is the one and only place where the power of the priesthood is to be found in this entire NOR.

Note:  This specific change by the NOR in the original prayer of the ARR is not to be found in the ARR. 

However, the above NOR prayer is somewhat similar to this prayer found in the ARR:

Hear us, we beseech Thee, Lord our God, and pour out upon this (these) Thy servant(s) the  + Blessing of the Holy Ghost and the power of Priestly Grace. Sustain them forever with the bounty of Thy Gifts, whom we present to Thy mercy to be Consecrated.

It is truly meet and just, right and profitable unto salvation to give thanks at all times and in all places to Thee, Holy Lord, Father Almighty, eternal God, Giver of honors and Dispenser of all dignities. Through Thee all things progress; by Thee they are sustained; through Thee the endowments of our rational nature are continually raised to a higher perfection according to a wisely appointed plan.

Thus have come into existence Priestly Orders and the Office of Levites, instituted amid Sacred Mysteries. When Thou didst appoint High Priests to govern the people, Thou didst 
also choose men of lower rank and inferior dignity to be at their side and to assist them in their work. 

Thus didst Thou multiply in the desert the spirit of Moses through the minds of seventy judicious men, so that with their help he easily governed the countless multitudes of the people.

In like manner Thou hast bestowed upon Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron, the fullness of their father's Priestly power, so that there might be a sufficient number of Priests for the offering of salutary sacrifices and the performance of the numerous sacred rites. 

By the same providence Thou, O Lord, has joined to the Apostles of Thy Son, teachers of the Faith; and with their help they have filled the whole world with the glad tidings of the Gospel.

Therefore, we beseech Thee, O Lord, give also to us such help in our infirmity; we need it so much more than they, as our weakness is so much greater. 

Da, quæsumus, Omnipotens Pater, in hunc famulum tuum Presbyterii dignitatem; innova in visceribus eius Spiritum Sanctitatis, ut acceptum a Te, Deus, secundi meriti munus obtineat censuramque morum exemplo suæ conversationis insinuet.

Grant, We beseech Thee, Almighty Father, invest this Thy servant with the dignity of the Priesthood; do Thou renew in his heart the spirit of Holiness, so that he may persevere in this Office, which is next to Ours in dignity, since he has received it from Thee, O God. May the example of his life lead others to moral uprightness.

May he (they) be a prudent fellow laborer(s) of Our Order; may the pattern of all justice shine forth in him (them) so that, when he (they) will give a good account of the stewardship entrusted to him (them), he (they) may receive the reward of eternal bliss.

The Ordaining Bishop says the following in a low voice, but loud enough to be heard by the Sacred Ministers who are near the Ordaining Bishop.

Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, forever and ever.

R. Amen.

Here Cranmer also seems to have borrowed a few more words from ARR: 5. The Instruction, although Cranmer once again drastically rewrote the original text.

A Continuation from the
1552 Edition of
Second Prayer Boke
of King Edward VI:

And that done, he shall saye unto them, whiche are appoynted to receyue the said Office, as hereafter foloweth.

YOU haue hearde brethren, aswel in your priuate examinacion, as in the exhortacion, and in the holy lessons taken oute of the Gospell, and of the writinges of the Apostles, of what dignitie, and of how great importaunce thys offyce is, (whereunto ye be called). And nowe we exhorte you, in the name of oure Lorde Jesus Chryste, to haue in remembraunce, into howe hygh a dignitie, and to howe chargeable an offyce ye be called, that is to saye, to bee the messengers, the watchemen, the Pastours, and the stewardes of the Lorde, to teache, to premonishe [warn], to feede, and prouide for the Lordes familye: to seeke for Christes shepe that be dispersed abrode, and for his children whiche be in the myddest of this naughtye worlde, to be saued through Christ for euer. Haue always therfore printed in youre remembraunce, how great a treasure is committed to youre charge: for they be the shepe of Christ, whiche he boughte with his death, and for whom he shed his bloud. The churche and congregacion, whom you muste serue, is his spouse and hys bodye. And if it shall chaunce the same churche, or any membre therof, to take any hurte or hinderaunce by reason of youre negligence, ye knowe the greatnesse of the faulte, and also of the horrible punishmente which wil ensue. Wherefore, consider with yourselues the ende of your ministery, towardes the chyldren of God, towarde the spouse and body of Christe, and see that you neuer cease your laboure, your care and diligence, untyll you haue done all that lieth in you, accordyng to your bounden duetie, to bryng all such as are, or shalbe committed to your charge, unto that agremente in faith, and knowledge of god, and to that ripenes, and perfectnesse of age in Christ, that there be no place left emong them, eyther for erroure in religion, or for viciousnesse in lyfe.

Then, forasmuche as youre offyce is both of so great excellency, and of so great difficultie, ye see with howe greate care and study ye oughte to apply yourselues, as well that you maye shew yourselues kynde to that Lorde, who hath placed you in so high a dignitie, as also to beware, that neyther you yourselues offende, neither be occasyon that other offende. Howbeit, ye cannot haue a mynde and a wyll thereto of yourselues for that power, and abilitie is geuen of god alone. Therfore ye se howe ye oughte and haue nede, earnestlye to praye for his holy spirit. And seeyng that you cannot, by any other meanes, compass the doinge of so weightie a worke perteininge to the saluacion of man, but with doctryne and exhortacion, taken out of holy scripture, and with a life agreable unto the same, ye perceiue how studyous ye oughte to be in reading and learnyng the holy scriptures, and in framyng the maners, both of yourselves, and of them that specially partein unto you, according to the rule of the same scriptures. And for this selfe same cause, ye see howe you oughte to forsake and set asyde (as muche as you may) all worldly cares and studyes.

We haue a good hope, that you haue well weighed and pondred these thynges with yourselues, long before thys time, and that you haue clerely determyned, by Goddes grace, to geue yourselues wholy to this vocacyon, wherunto it hath pleased God to call you, so that (as muche as lyeth in you) you applye youreselues wholy to this one thyng, and drawe al your cares and studies this waye, and to thys ende. And that you wyll continually praye for the heauenly assistaunce of the holy gost, from God the father, by the mediacion of our only mediatour and sauiour Jesus Christe, that by daylye readyng and weighyng of the scriptures, ye may waxe riper and stronger in your ministerye. And that ye may so endeuoure yourselues from time to time to sanctifie the liues of you and yours, and to fashyon them after the rule and doctrine of Christe, and that ye maye be wholesome and Godly examples and paterns, for the rest of the congregacion to follow: 

And that thys presente congregacion of Christe here assembled, maye also understande youre mindes and willes, in these thinges: and that this your promes shall more moue you to doe youre dueties, ye shall answer plainly to these thinges, whiche we in the name of the congregacyon shall demaunde of you, touchyng the same.

May they keep Thy law before their minds day and night, believe what they read, teach what they believe, and practice what they teach. 

May they show forth in their persons justice, constancy, mercy, fortitude, and all other Virtues; be leaders by their example, inspire strength by exhortation, and preserve the gift of their ministry pure and undefiled; may they change by a Holy Benediction bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Thy Son for the worship of Thy people. And having kept their conscience pure and true their faith in never failing charity, may they rise on the day of God's just and final judgment, full of the Holy Ghost, to perfect manhood, in the full measure of the age of Christ.

NOR:  13. 
Prayer of
Consecration

The candidate kneels before the bishop.  With his hands extended over the candidate, he sings the prayer of consecration or says it aloud.

Come to our help, Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God; you are the source of every honor and dignity, of all progress and stability.  You watch over the growing family of man by your gift of wisdom and your pattern of order.  When you had appointed high priests to rule your people, you chose other men next to them in rank and dignity to be with them and to help them in their task; and so there grew up the ranks of priests and the offices of levites, established by sacred rites.

In the desert you extended the spirit of Moses to seventy wise men who helped him to rule the great company of his people.  You shared among the sons of Aaron the fullness of their father's power, to provide worthy priests in sufficient number for the increasing rites of sacrifice and worship.  With the same loving care you gave companions to your Son's apostles to help in teaching the faith: they preached the gospel to the whole world.

Lord, grant also to us such fellow workers, for we are weak and our need is greater.

Almighty Father, grant to this servant of yours the dignity of the priesthood.  Renew within him the Spirit of holiness. As a co-worker with the order of bishops   may he be faithful to the ministry that he receives from you, Lord God, 

[Note:  That which “he receives” clearly and logically refers to “the ministry.”

So, this means that the candidate receivesonlythe
ministry”, but not the
priesthood itself.] 

and be to others a model of right conduct.  May he be faithful in working with the order of bishops,

so that the words of the Gospel
may reach the ends of the
earth

[Note:  This phrase deliberately omits any mention of tradition and thus panders to Protestanism with this Protestant terminology which is obviously not in the ARR. 

Using the term - words of the Gospel - also nullifies the one and only mention of tradition in the above examination (NOR: 6.) where the bishop tells the candidate:

to proclaim this faith in word and action as it is taught by the Gospel and the Church's tradition  (NOR: 6. Examination of the Candidate).]

and the family of nations, made one in Christ, may become God's one, holy people.  We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. 

R.  Amen.

Note: the family of nations business is very ambiguous. 

Does it mean that the family of nations - an apparent euphemistic expression to denote every country in the entire world - is to convert to the Catholic Church, the Mystical Body of Christ, which, in a sense, might be construed to be a “family” united in Christ, ala the NEW Theology terminology?

Or, in the context of the bogus language of a “New World Order” Modernist NEW Theology false ecumenism, could it possibly otherwise signify that because all countries are inhabited by the “family” of human beings, as opposed to some science fiction beings who are aliens from outer space, or from wherever, this “family” already exists de facto which “may become God’s one, holy people, by becoming “God’s one, holy people”, whatever this means: maybe it means Jewish? or maybe Mohammadan? or maybe Protestant? or maybe some other religion which is still evolving according to the Modernist dogma of evolution?

Beneath Thy sacred wing.

Of course Cranmer continued to rewrite everything, including this.

Solemn Ceremony of the

Please compare Cranmer's rewritten text above that only gives the aucthoritie to preache the worde of God, and to minister the holy Sacramentes with the Solemn Ceremony of the
Traditio Instrumentorum

In the ARR, the Bishop explicitly states:

Accipe potestatem offerre sacrificium Deo, Missasque Celebrare, tam pro vivis, quam pro defunctis. In Nomine Domini.

Receive the power to Offer Sacrifice to God and to Celebrate Mass for the living as well as for the dead. In the Name of the Lord.

Please note that Cranmer deliberately deleted:

Receive the power to Offer Sacrifice to God and to Celebrate Mass for the living as well as for the dead. 

Why? Because Cranmer does not believe the Mass is a Sacrifice, only a memorial meal, as do all Protestants.  Likewise, Cranmer does not believe in Transubstantiation.

This is why he wrote his Black Rubric that it is idolatry to kneel before a piece of bread in his supper meal non-sacrificial mass!

Administration
of the Power
to Offer the
Holy Sacrifice of the
Catholic Traditonal Mass

Solemn Ceremony
of the
Traditio
Instrumentorum






By the preceding Rite, including the imposition of hands, the Candidate(s) has already (have) been made (a) Priest(s) and possess(es) all Priestly powers. 

But the power to Offer the Holy Sacrifice according to the ancient and approved Rite of the Catholic Traditional Mass of the Catholic Church, to change bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ by Transubstantiation is such a tremendous, awe-inspiring power that a special Rite is employed to express its Administration and to bring more fully into realization what the Newly Ordained Priest(s) has (have) received.

Each Newly Ordained Priest again approaches the Ordaining Bishop and kneels before him, one by one, as before. 

To each Newly Ordained Priest, the Ordaining Bishop presents a Chalice containing the usual amount of wine used for offering a Mass, which wine has been mixed with no more than about 3-5 drops of water in it, along with the Paten upon which a host is lying.

The Newly Ordained Priest touches the Paten with a host on it, which the Ordaining Bishop presents to him, between the index and the middle finger, being very careful to touch both the Paten and the host at the same time with both index fingers, while, at the very same time, he also touches the cup of the Chalice with both of his middle fingers, while the Ordaining Bishop says:

The Bishop explicitly states:

Accipe potestatem offerre sacrificium Deo, Missasque Celebrare, tam pro vivis, quam pro defunctis. In Nomine Domini.

Receive the power to Offer Sacrifice to God and to Celebrate Mass for the living as well as for the dead. In the Name of the Lord.

The Newly Ordained Priest answers:

R. Amen.


Traditio Instrumentorum

What is liturgically called the
Traditio Instrumentorum,
is the Ordaining Bishop  handing over of the instruments to each New Priest to physically touch with his thumbs and forefingers.

The instruments, which are those things which are used by the Catholic Priest, are the Chalice which contains wine, along with a few drops of water, and the Paten which is on the top of the cup of the Chalice, on which a Host has been placed.

Here once again, Cranmer destroys the original text most probably because the Ordailning Bishop in the ARR not only Blesses the New Priest(s), but also asks God that the New Priest(s) 

may be Blessed in the Priestly Order, and Offer up the Sacrifice of Propitiation for the sins and offenses of the people to Almighty God

Prayer

Note:  IF one was not watching, but only listening, one would never know that the bishop was actually anointing the palms at the moment when the bishop says that the Father anointed Our Lord Jesus Christ.

“May Jesus preserve you to sanctify the Christian people” can be a general reference to the Laity since everyone should try to do what they can to helpt to sanctify others.

The phrase: “and offer sacrifice to God” is also very vague and general.

This phrase does NOT specifically mention the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Mass. Therefore, exactly to which sacrifice does it refer? 

All Catholics should offer sacrifices to God, e.g. unite and conform one’s will to God's Holy Will; also, during Lent to give up - sacrifice - something you like such as candy or a favorite TV program; etc.

NOR changed this prayer by combining the word Sanctify in the First Prayer with the idea of the word Sanctified in the Second Prayer, but NOR left out everything else.

1552 Edition of

of King Edward VI:

The Black Rubric.

The EX-Roman Catholic Archbishop of Canterbury, who was also the first Protestant Archbishop of Canterbury, after the rubrics had been printed in red ink in his 1552 Edition of the Second Prayer Boke of King Edward VI, decided to add a rubrick against kneeling at communion. 

Because it was too late to print this rubric in red ink, and since it could only be printed in black ink, it is called the Black Rubric

As you read it, please note how this Black Rubric, which suggests and recommends that everyone stand to receive communion, has been updated by the Vatican 2 church into an actual order which forbids kneeling for communion!

History has repeated itself!

1552 Edition of
Second Prayer Boke
of King Edward VI:

The Black Rubric.

ALthough no ordre can be so perfectlye deuysed, but it may be of some, eyther for theyr ignoraunce and infirmitie, or els of malice and obstinacie, mysconstrued, depraued, and interpreted in a wrong parte. And yet because brotherly charitie willeth, that so muche as conueniently may be, offences should be taken away:  therfore we willing to dooe the same. Wheras it is ordeyned in the booke of common prayer, in the administracion of the Lordes Supper, that the Communicantes kneelynge shoulde receiue the holye Communion:  whiche thyng beynge well mente, for a sygnificacyon of the humble and gratefull acknowledgeynge of the benefites of Christe, geuen unto the woorthye receyuer, and to auoyde the prophanacion and dysordre whiche about the holye communion myghte elles ensue. Lest yet the same kneelynge myght be thought or taken otherwyse, we dooe declare that it is not mente thereby, that any adoracion is doone, or oughte to bee doone, eyther unto the Sacramentall bread or wyne there bodelye receyued, or unto anye reall and essenciall presence there beeyng of Chrystes naturall fleshe and bloude. 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.

Although each newly Ordained Priest was made a Priest, and thereby received all Priestly powers, by the Imposition of the Hands of the Ordaining Bishop. but because of the excellence of the power to forgive sins, a special ceremony is employed to express its bestowal upon each new Priest. 

It is very fitting that this should be done near the conclusion of the Offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass by which Christ has made atonement for the sins of mankind and reconciled us with His Heavenly Father.

The Ordaining Bishop, Mitre on, seats himself on the faldstool. 

Each Newly Ordained Priest comes forward, walks up the Altar steps, and kneels on the predella before the Ordaining Bishop who lays his hands on each one and says:

Accipe Spiritum Sanctum, quorum remiseris peccata, remittuntur eis; et quorum retinueris, retenta sunt.

Quia res, quam tractaturi estis, satis periculosa est, Dilectissime (Dilectissimi), moneo vos, ut diligentur totius Ordinem, atque Hostiæ Consecrationem, ac fractionem, et Communionem, ab aliis jam doctis Sacerdotibus discatis, priusquam ad Celebrandum Missam accedatis.

Dearly Beloved, since the Office which you will perform is beset with considerable danger, I admonish you to learn carefully from other experienced Priests the Order of the whole Mass, the Consecration and the breaking of the Host, and the Communion, before you begin to celebrate Mass.

The Ordaining Bishop rises and Blesses the New Priest(s) who are kneeling before him:

Benedictio Dei omnipotentis Pa  +  tris, et Fi  +  lii, et Spiritus  +  Sancti descendat super vos; ut sitis Benedicti in Ordine Sacerdotali; et Offeratis Placabiles Hostias pro peccatis, atque offensionibus populi omnipotenti Deo, Cui est honor, et gloria per omnia sæcula sæculorum.

The Newly Ordained Priest(s) answer(s):  Amen.

May the Blessing of the Almighty God, the Fa + ther, the + Son, and the Holy + Ghost, descend upon you; that you may be Blessed in the Priestly Order, and Offer up the Sacrifice of Propitiation for the sins and offenses of the people to Almighty God, to Whom be honor and glory forever and ever. 

The Newly Ordained Priest(s) answer(s): Amen.

It is interesting to note that this Blessing explicitly states the Sacrificial Power of the Priest.

Please note that the NEW rite omits it and never explicitly states this power.

The Final
Admonition

Only for Priests

After the Last Blessing,
But before the Last Gospel

The Final Admonition, which is only for Priests, takes place after the Last Blessing, but before the Last Gospel.

With Mitre On, and Crozier in hand, the Ordaining Bishop sits on the faldstool and addresses the Newly Ordained Priest(s) kneeling before him. 

If all Orders have been conferred, the following Admonition is read unchanged.  If not, reference to the Orders not administered are omitted.

(1)  For ONLY
ONE PRIEST Ordinand

Dearly Beloved, carefully consider the Order which you have received today and the burden which has been laid upon your shoulders; endeavor to live holily and religiously, and to please Almighty God, that you may obtain His Grace; which in His Mercy He may deign to grant you.

You, newly Ordained to the Presbyterate, after your First Mass, say three other Masses: one of the Holy Ghost, another of the Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, and the third one for the Faithful Departed.  And pray to Almighty God also for me.

(2)   For Two or More
PRIEST Ordinands

Dearly Beloved, carefully consider the Order which you have received today and the burden which has been laid upon your shoulders; endeavor to live holily and religiously, and to please Almighty God, that you may obtain His Grace; which in His Mercy He may deign to grant you.

Those who have been Ordained to the Presbyterate, after your First Mass, say three other Masses, one of the Holy Ghost, another of the Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, and the third one for the Faithful Departed.

All Ordained to Any/All Orders

And pray to Almighty God also for me.

The Third Imposition of Hands

NOROMITTED IT; THREW IT OUT!
 

Note:  In the NOR Homily, the bishop says, in part, to the candidate:

In the sacrament of penance, you will forgive sins in the name of Christ and the Church.

However, there is no specific ceremony, or a Third  Imposition of Hands, in which there can be no question that the new priest actually receives this specific power. 

On the contrary, only a brief mention of this is made to the candiates in the Homily.  In this regard, nothing is specifically done after the candidates become priests. 

The NOR simply takes for granted, or merely assumes, that the Power to Forgive Sins is something its priests automatically have.

The Last Gospel

The Ordaining Bishop, Mitre on, with Crozier, goes to the Gospel side of the Altar and, together with the Newly Ordained Priest(s), begins the Last Gospel.  Each New Priest has both of his hands reverently folded together.

Ordaining Bishop:
Dominus vobiscum.
The Lord be with thee.

R. Et cum spiritu tuo.
R. And with thy spirit.

The Ordaining Bishop first signs the Altar, and then himself, with the Greek + Sign of the Cross on his forehead, lips and chest (the Newly Ordained Priest does [Priests do] likewise), saying:

+ Initium sancti Evangelii secundum Joannem.

+ The beginning of the Holy Gospel according to John.

R.  Gloria tibi, Domine. 
R.  Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

If another Gospel is to be read, it will be found in the Propers, and the Ordaining Bishop says:

+ Seqentia Sancti Evangelii secundum ...

+ The continuation of the Gospel according to ....

R. Gloria tibi, Domine. 
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

John 1:1-14

In principio erat Verbum, et Verbum erat apud Deum, et Deus erat Verbum. Hoc erat in principio apud Deum. Omnia per ipsum facta sunt: et sine ipso factum est nihil, quod factum est; in ipso vita erat, et vita erat lux hominum: et lux in tenebris lucet, et tenebræ eam non comprehenderunt.  Fuit homo missus a Deo, cui nomen erat Joannes. Hic venit in testimonium, ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine, ut omnes crederent per illum.  Non erat ille lux, sed ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine. Erat lux vera quæ illuminat omnem hominem venientem in hunc mundum.  In mundo erat, et mundus per ipsum factus est, et mundus eum non cognovit. In propria venit, et sui eum non receperunt. Quotquot autem receperunt eum, dedit eis potestatem filios Dei fieri, his, qui credunt in Nomine Eius: qui non ex sanquinibus, neque ex voluntate carnis, neque ex voluntate viri, sed ex Deo nati sunt. 

All Genuflect at:

ET VERBUM CARO FACTUM EST, 

All Rise and Stand at:

et habitavit in nobis: et vidimus gloriam ejus, gloriam quasi Unigenti a Patre, plenum gratiæ et veritatis.

R. Deo gratias. 

John 1:1-14

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him: and without Him was made nothing that was made: in Him was the life, and the life was the light of men: and the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men might believe through him. He was not the Light, but was to bear witness of the Light. That was the true Light, which enlighteth every man that cometh into the world.  He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them He gave power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in His name: who are born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

All Genuflect at:

AND THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH,

All Rise and Stand at:

and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, as it were the glory of the Only-Begotten of the Father, full of grace and of truth.

R. Thanks be to God.

All Remain Standing until after the Ordaining Bishop has left the Sanctuary along with all of the Newly Ordained, all of the Altar Ministers, and all of the visiting Prelates, Priests, etc.

10.  By the same providence Thou, O Lord, has joined to the Apostles of Thy Son, teachers of the Faith; and with their help they have filled the whole world with the glad tidings of the Gospel. 10.  With the same loving care you gave companions to your Son's apostles to help in teaching the faith: they preached the gospel to the whole world.

Nota Bene: According to the Apostolic Constitution Sacramentum Ordinis, On the Sacrament of Order, of Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli [Thursday, March 2, 1939 - Thursday, October 9, 1958], First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 1947:

“4.  ......It follows as a consequence that We should declare, and in order to remove all controversy and to preclude doubts of conscience, We do by Our Apostolic Authority declare, and if there was ever a lawful disposition to the contrary We now decree that at least in the future the Traditio Instrumentorum is not necessary for the validity of the Sacred Orders of the Diaconate, the Priesthood, and the Episcopacy.”

“5.  .... In the Ordination to the Priesthood, the Matter is the First Imposition of hands of the Bishop which is done in silence, but not the continuation of the same Imposition through the extension of the right hand, nor the last Imposition to which are attached the words: "Accipe Spiritum Sanctum: quorum remiseris peccata, etc." And the Form consists of the words of the Preface, of which the following are essential and therefore required for validity:

“Da, quaesumus, omnipotens Pater, in hunc famulum tuum Presbyterii dignitatem; innova in visceribus eius spiritum sanctitatis, ut acceptum a Te, Deus, secundi meriti munus obtineat censuramque morum exemplo suae conversationis insinuet.”
“Grant, We beseech Thee, Almighty Father, invest this Thy servant with the dignity of the Priesthood; do Thou renew in his heart the Spirit of Holiness, so that he may persevere in this Office, which is next to Ours in dignity, since he has received it from Thee, O God. May the example of his life lead others to moral uprightness.”

Which One of these
Three Different Liturgical Rites
Used for the Administration of
The Sacrament of the Holy Priesthood
Is the One and Only VALID Rite?

Dear Reader,

In the above Side-by-Side Comparison of Three Different Liturgical Rites Used for the Administration of The Sacrament of the Holy Priesthood  you had an opportunity to see and to read for yourself each of the three different texts that are used for the Administration of the Sacrament of the Holy Priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church, in the Church of England, a.k.a. Anglican, and in the Synod Vatican 2 church.  A few relatively brief commentaries were given to help you to better understand the meaning of certain specific sections.

The same is also true regarding the above Side-by-Side Comparison in Detail of the Ancient Roman Rite with the Novus Ordo Rite of the Required Essential Form According to the Infallible Apostolic Constitution Sacramentum Ordinis, On the Sacrament of Order, by Pope Pius XII, on the First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 1947 which likewise has a few relatively brief commentaries.

However, the primary purpose and focus of all of this data is to give you an opportunity to make your own comparisons and determinations regarding each of the above data.

But the problem for most of the Laity, and perhaps with even some members of the Clergy?, is that the necessary knowledge of Church History, of certain principles of Thomistic Theology, and of certain Infallible Documents, not only of the Roman Catholic Council of Trent - plus its Canons with their respective Censures of automatic excommunication, but also of certain Roman Catholic Popes, especially regarding the Sacrament of the Holy Priesthood, is something that the average Catholic does not know because the average Catholic has never been required to study any of these subjects in any real depth.

Apparently the required study of Thomistic Theology by Seminarians - future priests - has long ago been abanded in the Synod Vatican 2 church, along with some of the Infallible Documents of certain pre-Synod Vatican 2 Popes, and most especially the Infallible Canons and Decrees of the Roman Catholic Council of Trent, each of which were Infallibly promulgated by the Roman Catholic Popes of that time period?

Therefore, now it is time to provide you with the answer to the question:  Which one of these three different Liturgical Rites used for the Administration of the Sacrament of the Holy Priesthood is the one and only VALID Rite?

Over time, a few studies, more or less scholarly, have been written concerning the validity, as well as the invalidity, of certain Liturgical Rites that are used for the Administration of The Sacrament of the Holy Priesthood.

Some of these studies can be very confusing for the average Catholic to read, and most especially to understand.

Therefore, We have chosen one such study which should be less confusing, but still scholarly, and definitely much easier for the average Catholic to read.

As you might expect. such a study requires more than just a few random paragraphs, because, as you can readily appriciate from the above comparisons, clear explanations are necessary in order to better understand the conclusion.

Because this current web page is already very long, We have decided to provide a separate web page for the answer to the question:   Which one of these three different Liturgical Rites used for the Administration of the Sacrament of the Holy Priesthood is the one and only VALID Rite?

Please click on this link for the answer which is found on this web page:
Which Liturgical Rite used for the Administration of The Sacrament of the Holy Priesthood is the One and Only VALID Rite?

Thank you for reading all of the data on this web page and for your interest in this subject which is of extreme vital importance for every Catholic to know?

Why?

Because IF a Catholic is going to a valid Rite of Mass being Offered by a LAYMAN who was never validly Ordained to the Roman Catholic Priesthood, the extremely negative consequences for your Immortal Soul should be very obvious?!

God Bless You!

Patriarch Jacobus Maria DeJesus, D.D.

Important Quotes

“[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]).

“These latter days have witnessed a notable increase in the number of the enemies of the Cross of Christ, who, by arts entirely new and full of deceit, are striving to destroy the vital energy of the Church, and, as far as in them lies, utterly to subvert the very Kingdom of Christ. Wherefore, We may no longer keep silence, lest We should seem to fail in Our most Sacred Duty, and lest the kindness that, in the hope of wiser counsels, We have hitherto shown them, should be set down to lack of diligence in the discharge of Our Office” (Roman Catholic Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907, ¶ 1; 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 anathema”  (Saint Isidore of Seville [b. Cartagena, Spain 560 A.D. - d. Seville, Spain, 636 A.D.], Bishop of Seville, Doctor of the Catholic Church, Etymologies, 8, 3; emphasis added).

“And you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).

“Am I then become your enemy, because I tell you the Truth?” (Galatians 4:16).

“For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the Truth, but will be turned unto fables” (2 Timothy 4:3-4).

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

“Be not led away with various and strange doctrines.  Jesus Christ yesterday, and today, and the same forever” (Hebrews 13:8-9).

Summa Contra Gentiles, Book I, Chapter 60.)

“Truth knows no distinction of persons.  Therefore, he who speaks the Truth is invincible, dispute with whom he may”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Commentary on Job, Chapter 13, Lesson 2).

“If people are scandalized at the Truth, it is better to allow the birth of scandal, than to abandon the Truth” (Saint Gregory I, the Great, [Friday, September 3, 590 - Monday, March 12, 604], Homily on Ezechiel, 7; cited by Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part II-II, Question 43, Article 7).

“But such as dare either to put together another faith, or to bring forward or to teach or to deliver a different Creed... let them be anathema [i.e. automatically excommunicated]” (Fourth Ścumenical Council, the First Council of Chalcedon, Session 5, Sunday, October 22, 451 A.D.).

“We have only one doctrine; this is the faith of the Doctors of the Church; this is the Faith of the Holy Apostles; this is the Faith which has saved the world.” (Fourth Ścumenical Council, the First Council of Chalcedon [Sunday, October 8, 451 A.D. - Wednesday, November 1, 451 A.D.])

“If anyone rejects all ecclesiastical Tradition, either written or unwritten:  let him be anathema.” (Seventh Ścumenical Council, the Second Council of Nicæa [Thursday, September 24, 787 A.D. - Friday, October 23, 787 A.D.], Anathema 4).

Dear Visitors:

Please help Us to continue to provide the Truth,  which   all Catholics need to know,   in these days of deliberate confusion,   lies, brainwashing,  and   propaganda!

Some of Our web pages are the only places on the Internet where you will find some very important facts,  because some of these facts are from  Our own many personal experiences,     as well as the result of Our meetings with many Catholic Traditional Clergy including various Patriarchs, Cardinals, Primates, Metropolitans, Archbishops, Bishops, and Religious and Secular Priests, over many, many, many decades,    plus    Our own eye-witness testimony,   concerning    some of the many, many, many changes, which began many, many, many decades,   before the many, many, many younger generations of Catholics were even born,   and    of which changes all of these so many, many younger generations of Catholics,   have no personal knowledge and/or personal experiences.

Most of these many changes    are not only   illegal,  but they are also   invalid,  and   most of them include the censure of  automatic excommunication of the perpetrators,  because, in reality, such changes by the cabal of   automatically excommunicated Innovators,   as well as   the secret gangs   of anti-Catholic Infiltrators,    are changes which are  anti-Catholic!

Discover what the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH teaches    about the UNCHANGEABLE:   Roman Catholic Faith,   MassSacraments,  etc., etc.
