“We must say it plainly: the Roman rite as we knew it exists no more. It has gone. Some walls of the structure have fallen, others have been altered—we can look at it as a ruin or as the partial foundation of a new building. Think back, if you remember it, to the Latin sung High Mass with Gregorian chant. Compare it with the modern post-Vatican II Mass. It is not only the words, but also the tunes and even certain actions that are different. In fact it is a different liturgy of the Mass.”
— Fr. Joseph Gelineau (1978)

Impressive Video — “Ad Orientem” Celebration
published 4 September 2016 by Corpus Christi Watershed

The following was sent to us by a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, which is featured in this video:


Most Rev’d René H. Gracida—chosen as bishop by Pope Paul VI and friend of Pope St. John Paul II—is shown making the following declaration: “When the priest speaks to the people, he should look at them and speak to them. When the priest speaks to God he should look at the Crucifix.”

He continues: “Do it gradually, with proper catechesis, to avoid shocking the people. This is the problem of the Reform after the Vatican Council. Changes were sprung upon the people without any warning. So, we must not do that now.”
