Default the Mass on EWTN - what do you think?

I sometimes watch the daily Mass on EWTN. I think that it's a good example of what the 'novus ordo' Mass was meant to be... it follows the rubrics very well, imo, there's no liturgical abuse, and it's reverent and overall a very good Mass! what do you think? Does anyone else here watch it? I think if all parishes followed this model, no one would really complain about the 'novus ordo' like we see happening

God bless

I've seen it several times.

I wish they would use more incense, chant the collects and readings.... but I'm Byzantine. What can I say?

that happens in the Byzantine liturgy and the TLM
but this is just a daily Mass... I don't think they'd use so much incense there. Maybe they do on Sundays..

it's still soo much better than at some parishes it's reverent.. many people receive the Eucharist kneeling... I think it's just really well done overall. =)

does anyone know what church it's filmed at?

You're right. I grew up Roman and now regularly attend a Byzantine Catholic Church.

Also known as, The Mass of Pope Paul VI, promulgated by Pope Paul VI after the Vatican II. It is the ordinary form of the Roman Rite Mass.

That's the short version

You mean the Mass of Pope Paul VI also known as the Ordinary Form of the Mass?

I think they are pretty good. They can be a bit too severe at times depending on the celebrant; the homilies often last too long (again, depending on the celebrant) and I miss. the sign of peace (it's always done very well when a visiting bishop celebrates the Mass) but overall they are pretty darned good.

It's filmed at the Monastery Church, Our Lady of the Angels, in Irondale, AL. It was originally the convent of the Poor Clares (Mother Angelica's order), but when the Shrine of the Blessed Sacrament was built in Hanceville, the nuns moved there and the friars took over their monastery.

Peace,
Linda

CatholicTV's Daily Masses are nicer. The video on the website is jerky, but if you've got an iTunes music store account, you can subscribe to download their Daily Masses free via the Video Podcasts. The quality is superb.

I don't think CatholicTV's Masses are nicer. They are certainly less severe though. CTV's broadcast of the Sunday Mass from Notre Dame blows away EWTN's Sunday Mass in every way however -- even those broadcast from the Shrine.

I wish all O.F. Masses in the world are celebrated like that. I like it when they do all the Prayers in Latin. The Mass there is much more reverent than my Parish.
