As should be self-evident, with 1,450,000 web pages treating the subject of  “Not all Latin Masses are valid”, there are all different opinions on this issue.  In Our brief testing of some of these web pages, We found three basic categories of web sites which address this subject.

Category # 1:  Some web sites are clearly web sites which, in one way or another, are .anti-Catholic. Satanic. Synod. Vatican  2. pseudo-churches.. web sites, and therefore, they are totally FOR the so-called NEW mass, a.k.a. the Novus Ordo Missae, in its constantly changing configurations.  They quote primarily  .anti-Catholic. Satanic. Synod. Vatican  2. pseudo-church.. documents, popes, theologians, etc.  This includes various  .automatically. .excommunicated. .Apostate, .Modernist. .Heretic, and .NEW. .Theology. .Heretic. who had also been..peritiat .Synod. Vatican  2.

Category # 2:  Other web sites are clearly quasi-conservative, and/or quasi-Traditional, yet, none the less, in one way or another, all of these are still .anti-Catholic. Satanic. Synod. Vatican  2. pseudo-church..web sites.  Despite this fact, some of them do provide some well-known Traditional quotations from Councils, Popes, Theologians, etc.

Category # 3:  These, much smaller in number, are clearly what are often called Traditional Catholic web sites, some with well-known Traditional Catholic quotations from:  a) pre-Vatican 2 Roman Catholic General Councils; b)  pre-Vatican 2 Roman Catholic Popes;  c) pre-Vatican 2 Roman Catholic Theologians; d) books and/or articles written by various Traditional Catholic Laymen of various degrees of pre-Vatican 2 Roman Catholic Traditionalism.

Needless to say, the average Catholic can be very easily overwhelmed by 1,450,000 web pages treating the subject of  “Not all Latin Masses are valid”, not to mention becoming very, very confused by some such web sites, especially those which have Roman Catholic Traditional graphics, but which have text and/or quotes which, to various degrees, falsely recognize the  .anti-Catholic. Satanic. Synod. Vatican  2. the Roman Catholic Church.

It is no wonder that the subject quickly becomes obfuscated among the confusing maze of contradictions when the contents of one web site are compared to one or more other web sites to be found in each of the above three categories.

Upon what basis can the ordinary Catholic Laity (and today even many Religious, Priests, and Bishops - of whatever rank of ecclesiastical jurisdiction) arrive at the real factual unchangeable Truth?

The obvious answer is to begin at the beginning and procede in a logical, systematic, way by determing the correct answer to this question:

What makes the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass a .Valid. Mass?
The answer is NOT to be found in the language of the Mass, which is actually a side-issue.  But because of the fact that most Catholics mistakenly think that IF the Mass is in Latin, that this automatically means that each Latin Mass is .Valid, it is necessary to deal with this issue, and thus the reason for the subject of this web page:

Not all Latin Masses are.Valid.

Yet, because this is obviously a very important, but frequently an emotional, issue, it is first necessary to examine this subject in an objective and rational way, with the focus first on the real and basic issue, which is:  “What makes the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass a.Valid.Mass?” according to what the Roman Catholic Church teaches.

Sincere, honest, loyal, faithful Roman Catholic Clergy [all those who have .validly.received the Sacrament of Holy Orders, including Priests and Bishops [of whatever rank of ecclesiastical jurisdiction], Religious, and Laity need to know the answer to the question:  “What makes the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass a.Valid. Mass?”, but not the mere opinions, no matter how accurate, or inaccurate, as the case may be, of well-intentioned web-masters, the majority of whom are Catholic Laity, but rather an authentic and official Episcopal ecclesiastical response within the context of what the Roman Catholic Church officially and dogmatically teaches.

As the above Google search indicates, no web site currently gives the answer to this question, although there are 409,000 web sites which apparently attempt to answer parts of this very basic, and extremely important, question, the accuracy of which answers are obviously not the necessary authentic and official Episcopal ecclesiastical response within the context of what the Roman Catholic Church officially and dogmatically teaches.

What makes the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass a .Valid. Mass?

Before a professional football player, basball player, runner, etc., takes the field, as the expression goes, each one engages in what is called proper preparation.  Otherwise, such a person would be at a big disadvantage in attempting to engage in the releative sport involved.

The same holds true for all Catholics:  Clergy, Religious, and Laity.  So, before one continues with what follows, We can not too strongly suggest each Reader makes a proper preparation, which is quite brief.  To help each Reader in this regard, We recommend each Reader now clicks this link to make the necessary brief preparation: Proper Preparation is Necessary Before Reading.

The Virtue of Humility and of Docility to God the Holy Ghost are a sine qua non in reading what could easily otherwise become an object lesson of what not to do when reading any important writing of whatever kind.

For those of you whose temperament and personality abhor details, here is the bare bottom line answer:

The Proper Unchangeable Ontological Essence, and the Proper Unchangeable Metaphysical Essence, of the Holy Sacrifice of the Traditional Catholic Mass, which was perfectly, and unchangeably, instituted by the Eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ, is the aultimate answer to:

What makes the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass a .Valid. Mass?

However, for those of you whose temperament and personality need/require details, please continue to read what follows.

What is the Proper Unchangeable Ontological Essence,
and the Proper Unchangeable Metaphysical Essence,
of the Holy Sacrifice of the Traditional Catholic Mass?

Various authors and theologians ascribe various meanings to the terms ontological essence and metaphysical essence.

For those of you who want more than a brief definition of terms, who want more than the opinions of various people, or even the teachings of one or more famous theologians, but rather,  the Infallible Doctrinal Teachings on the Holy Sacrifice of the Traditional Catholic Mass, the Infallible Doctrinal Canons and Decrees on the Holy Sacrifice of the Traditional Catholic Mass, and also the Official Teachings of the Roman Catholic Church concerning what the Traditional Catholic Mass is in her historically one and only Offical Catechism which was issued by the Decree of the Infallible Roman Catholic Pope, Saint Pius V, please click on this link:

Real and True Catholic Tradition

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.)

None should be allowed “to call into question the Belief which the [Apostolic] Fathers received [directly] from the Apostles, as if there is any doubt what this is”.  (Pope Saint Leo I, “Letter to Emperor Marcian at Constantinople”, Monday, June 26, 451.)

Here Is The Proof for the Ape church:
Evil anti-Catholic Infiltrators and Their
Attacks Against the Church and the Traditional Catholic Mass

Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand's sincerity and honesty come through in his immediate response to his thoughtful question to Dr. Bella Dodd which was witnessed by his Wife, Mrs./Dr. Alice von Hildebrand.

Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand was a victim of Synod Vatican 2, just like many hundreds of millions of other Roman Catholics.  It is interesting how, as time went on, apparently after he wrote “Trojan Horse in the City of God; The Catholic Crisis Explained”, 1967, that the following incident happened as testified by his Wife, Mrs./Dr. Alice von Hildebrand, in her excellent Article A Final Swing, from which We quote verbatim:

“She [Mrs./Dr. Bella V. Dodd, (b. at Picerno, Italy in October, 1904 - d. in April, 1969)] lectured extensively. It was at one of her talks that my husband and I made her acquaintance. We immediately perceived that she was an exceptional person: her intelligence, her sincerity, her humility, and her desire to make good for the harm that she had done.

Dodd visited us in New Rochelle, New York.

I recall that one day my husband-who had become increasingly worried about what was dubbed the spirit of Vatican II - said to her:

Bella, at times I wonder whether the Church has not been infiltrated.
I can solemnly testify that she answered:
Dear professor, you fear it; I know it. When I was a fanatic Communist,I was in close contact with four cardinals in the Vatican working for us. They are still very active today.
My husband jumped in his seat and said:
My nephew is German ambassador at the Holy See. Who are they?
Bella Dodd refused to answer: Bishop Sheen had not allowed her to reveal their names.”

(Mrs./Dr. Alice von Hildebrand, Article:  A Final Swing; emphasis added.This was written in defense of the book entitled:  AA-1025 Memoirs of a Communist's Infiltration Into the Church, by Sister Marie Carré, and a rebuttal against the article entitled Swinging at Windmills: A Close Look at Catholic Conspiracy Theories, by Sandra Louise Miesel who claims to be a medievalist and a Catholic journalist.)

This is neither the response, nor the reaction, of a heretic, of an innovator, of an infiltrator, but rather the response of a very, very totally sincere, honest Catholic who was worried about the Church and who was wondering whether or not the Roman Catholic Church had been infiltrated!

In searching various historical records in regard to the INFILTRATION of the Roman Catholic Church, the following source is also very important:

They would elect a Pope of conciliation. The choice has already fallen on the patriarch of Venice - RoncalliChosen by whom?” I rejoined, surprised.  By our Masonic representatives in the Conclave, responded placidly my kind escort. And then it escaped me:

There are Freemasons in the Conclave?”  Certainly, was the reply,   the Church is in our hands. I rejoined perplexed:  “Who, then, is in charge in the Church?” After a brief pause, the voice of my escort uttered precisely: No one can say where the upper echelons are. The echelons are occult.



Automatically excommunicated heretic, apostate, innovator, and anti-Catholic infiltrator, Paul 6 actually admitted that he himself changed the Infallible & Unchangeable FORM  (Infallible Councils of Florence & Trent):
“For PASTORAL REASONS, however, and to facilitate concelebration, we have directed that the words of the Lord be identical in each form of the can [i.e. Eucharistic Prayers #1, #2, #3, and #4].  Thus, in each eucharistic prayer, we WISH that the words be as follows:  over the bread:  Accipite et Manducate ex Hoc Omnes:  Hoc Est Enim Corpus Meum, Quod Pro Vobis Tradetur; over the chalice:  Accipite et Bibite ex Eo Omnes:  Hic Est Enim Calix Sanguinis Mei Novi et Æterni Testamenti, Qui Pro Vobis et Pro Multis Effundetur in Remissionem Peccatorum.  Hoc Facite in Meam Commemorationem.  The words Mysterium Fidei, NOW TAKEN OUT OF THE CONTEXT OF THE WORDS OF CHRIST, are said by the priest as an introduction to the acclamation of the faithful.”  (Pope Paul VI, Missalis Romani, Thursday, April 3, 1969 A.D., ¶ 6; emphasis added.)

The Memorare
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
