“The problem of the new Missal resides in its departure from the continuous history which was going on before and after Pius V, and that it creates definitely a new book (although with old material). Its appearance is accompanied by a type of prohibition of what was traditional, being such a type of prohibition alien to the ecclesiastical history of law and of liturgy. From my personal knowledge of the conciliar debates and from the repeated reading of the speeches of the Fathers of the Council, I can say with certainty, that this was not intended by them.”
— Cardinal Ratzinger, Letter to Wolfgang Waldstein (14 December 1976)

Video • Holy Mass in Hollywood, 1944
published 22 December 2015 by Andrew Leung

ERE IS AN OLD VIDEO from the 1944 Hollywood film, “Christmas Holiday“. The video shows a Christmas Solemn High Mass that was attended by Abigail Manette (Deanna Durbin), who is the main character in the movie. So, if you are wondering how Masses were like in the bigger parishes in the 1940s, this is probably a good example.
