XL Anniversary of a Crisis

A celebration of the New Mass by a Bishop of the Church.
Note the use of improper vessels on the Altar, but also note
the tragic yet perfectly canonical banality of the rite itself.

November 30th 1969 a day that marks the climax of a profound crisis of identity in the Latin rite of the Church. On that day 40 years ago the Papal constitution Missale Romanum introduced into the life of the Church a rite of Mass compromised in its structure, and orientation by a false ecumenism that attempted to placate Protestantism. The Church is currently under going a process of reform under the saintly rule of Pope Benedict XVI. May the Lord grant him many years, and may the almighty God restore His Temple.
