I have the audios (of these video) on right now as I write this.
This speaker has not "smeared" anyone.
I have been reading about this for years, from GOOD sources, including the great
Dietrich von Hildebrand, Father Peter Stravinskas, JOSEPH RATZINGER,
the 1966 Encyclical on the Eucharist BY POPE PAUL VI denouncing the very same New "Mass theology" that exploded in the church after this New Mass was introduced,
and I can tell you that this speaker IS telling the truth, and is telling a heck of a lot MORE than a mere "GRAIN" of truth.
What he is describing is exactly how the New Mass was introduced and implemented.
This is well-documented. A great many of the Catholic prayers in the liturgy were
EXISED from the New mass. These very prayers were the prayers that EMPHASIZED the Sacrificial Nature of the Mass. There are a few left in the New Mass, that is true, but the majority of them were dropped. That can be shown by simply reading the English translation of the 1962 mass and the text of the New Mass.
THE NEW MASS IS VALID and sacrificed is affirmed, a couple of times, but it is not held in high relief as it once was. He is right to assume that this has weakened the correct Catholic understanding of the fact that the Mass is a SACRIFICE.
When I was in RCIA, when it came to Mass, we were shown ridiculous videos (I won't say who produced them out of kindness, but it was a religious Order) that described the Mass for us Newbies. One was called "THE BREAD THAT REMEMBERS." It left my head spinning. I got, from it, no HINT that the Mass was a sacramental re-presentation of Calvary with Christ, resurrected and glorified, literally made present on the altar. Not so much as a hint. It made the loaf into something almost magical that knew all your thoughts and stuff like that. Frankly, we in class looked at each other perplexed.
The other Video, at the beginning, the female announcer DID call the Mass "the body and blood" of the Lord, once, then proceeded to turn the video over to a lisping priest (I'm mentioning that deliberately) who informs us that going to Mass is the same as going to
a Thanksgiving Dinner, where you gather together (Gather us in, gather us in...), sit around the dinner table and the turkey and vegetables, tell each other your stories for the past few months since you've seen each other (what the heck does that have to do with the Sacrifice of the Mass???) and then you share "The Meal." That's it. The whole thrust of the video was that the Mass is the Catholic Faithful gathering together to share
a Meal. That was IT. No mention, at all, of a Sacrifice.
If I had not studied, ON MY OWN, books on what the Mass IS, including Paul VI's intense 1966 encyclical REAFFIRMING, almost in anger, the True Nature of the Mass, my RCIA training would have convinced me that Mass is nothing other than a celebratory community Meal. We were NOT taught the truth.
I had to laugh in humor/anger when he mentioned in the video about a valid confession after which valid absolution, the priest tells the penitent that his adultery wasn't really a sin because his wife is really not a nice lady. I laughed, not approvingly though, because that actually happened to me personally. I receivied a valid absolution, only to have the visiting liberal priest tell me bluntly to COMMIT sexual immorality. He did not consider it immoral. He told me to take up with someone in a non-marital sexual activity situation, and that if I confined it to just one person (outside of marriage, mind you!!!) that, to quote him, "THAT would not be morally objectionalbe." I was horrified. What if he gave that damnable advice to impressionable teenagers in the Confessional??? I wrote to the Archbishop and reported him by name and what he told me. I later found out that he was confronted, SMARTED-OFF to the Archbishop in response, and was banned from our Diocese. I pray for his repentance.
Anyway, to those who denoumced these videos linked above, you have Denounced them.
But in no WAY have "rebutted" them, because the content is 99% Accuirate and nobody is being smeared at all. As for Annibale Bugnini, he denied being a Mason, but many HIGH RANKING Vatican Officials, who were men "in the know", were absolutely convinced that he was. Now, some of the masons do lie, but Masonic leaders also in the 60s and 70s asserted that Bugnini was one of them. Paul VI apparently finally got very wary of him and shipped him off to be Nuncio to Iran, a country with all of about, oh, perhaps, 31 Catholics. And Paul VI himself wrote an encyclical on the Worship of the Eucharist vehemently re-affirming the Sacrificial character of the Mass, which was not clear at all in the GIRM when the new mass was first implemented and which was being denied, for the first time ever, by a HUGE number of Catholics. Paul VI was horrified by that.
I happen to like the New Mass, especially with the new changes by Benedict XVI, who himself has written frequently very unflattering remarks about the Original "New Mass" and about HOW it came about. Ratzinger, our pope, too, is "in the know." He actually called the original new mass a spontaneous invention/creation. That's NOT flattering analysis from a brilliant Pope like Benedict XVI.
