1. Holy Mass of the Ages, as filmed by Hollywood in 1944


    from Moose Malloy Added 6,068 5 0

    A small portion of "The Mass of the Ages," taken from the Deanna Durbin feature film, "Christmas Holiday." "The basic error of most of the innovators is to imagine that the new Liturgy brings the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass nearer to the faithful, that shorn of its old rituals the Mass now enters into the substance of our lives. For the question is whether we better meet Christ in the Mass by soaring up to Him, or by dragging Him down into our own pedestrian, workaday world. The innovators would replace Holy Intimacy with Christ by an unbecoming familiarity. The new Liturgy actually threatens to frustrate the confrontation with Christ, for it discourages Reverence in the Face of Mystery, precludes Awe, and all but extinguishes a sense of Sacredness." Dietrich von Hildebrand, 1966. "It is a long established principle of the Church never to completely drop from her public Worship any Ceremony, Object or Prayer which once occupied a place in that Worship." Ven. Fulton Sheen, 1941. "We do not know how to Pray as we ought, but the Spirit Himself Intercedes ..." St. Paul, Rom 8:26. The Mass, the Highest Act of Prayer, is thus something received from Above, not from below and not to be tampered with. No decent conductor would think of altering Bach's music; it is to be reverently received and carried out according to the author's wishes. Likewise, with Shakespeare; those who present he and his work receive his instruction lovingly and execute it faithfully. But Holy Mass comes from Someone Greater than these! So if we would not tamper with the works of the lesser, why would we do so with the Work of the Greatest? Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, Lex Vivendi.

      from Philip Chidell Added 10.3K 16 1

      This 25 minute documentary, with contributions from Bishop Mark Davies of the Shrewsbury Diocese, shows how the famous “Dome of Home” church – the Church of Sts Peter, Paul and Philomena – is thriving under the care of Canon Amaury Montjean and the Institute of Christ the King. The documentary has extensive coverage of the Latin Mass (also known as the Tridentine rite, or as the “extraordinary form” of the Mass), and also discusses the way other sacraments are celebrated in the church, with excerpts from an extraordinary form baptism. It considers the history, heritage and future of this beautiful church.

      • Mass Facing East - Two thousand years of liturgical orientation


        from LMS Added 1,031 4 0

        One of the most obvious differences between the Old Rite of Mass and the Novus Ordo is the direction in which the priest faces. Worship 'ad orientem', or facing East, is an ancient practice going back to the earliest centuries of the Church. Criticised by advocates of the New Mass as 'the priest turning his back to the people', it is nothing of the sort. Quite the reverse, in fact, it unites priest and people in a deep and spiritual way unheard of in most Novus Ordo celebrations. Here Dr Joseph Shaw explains the ancient roots of Mass facing East, its theological and spiritual symbolism, and why arguments claiming that Mass facing the people was the practice in the early Church are totally spurious.

          • Silence in the Liturgy


            from LMS Added 3,723 10 0

            Silence is one of the most characteristic aspects of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite that marks it apart from the Novus Ordo. Many of the prayers said by the priest are done so either silently or inaudibly. There are very good reasons for silence in the traditional liturgy; a practice that dates back centuries to the early Church. In this short video, Dr Joseph Shaw explains the reasons for what many mass-goers regard as one of the most attractive and uplifting aspects of the Traditional Latin Mass.
