"Nothing should be allowed that is unworthy of divine worship, nothing that is obviously profane or unfit to express the inner, sacred power of prayer. Nothing odd or unusual is allowable, since such things, far from fostering devotion in the praying community, rather shock and upset it—and impede the proper and rightful cultivation of a devotion faithful to tradition."
— Pope Paul VI • 10/13/1966

“The New Mass” • Discussed by Michael Davies, Malachi Martin, Msgr. Champlin, and William F. Buckley

HIS WAS RECORDED about two years before I was born. The characters involved are all either famous or infamous—and I will say nothing more about any of them at this moment.

What I will say: This is a fascinating discussion from 22 April 1980!

The information mentioned by Michael Davies at marker 28:08 is interesting to me—I never knew he personally wrote to those Protestant advisors.

At marker 8:01 Monsignor says the Vatican II reforms were justified because of an “excessive atmosphere of the Sacred” at Mass — Yikes!
