CLEAR EVIDENCE OF HOW VATICAN II WAS SHOVED DOWN THE THROATS OF RELUCTANT CATHOLICS IN THE MOST PRE-VATICAN II AUTHORITARIAN WAY


If only Blessed Pope Paul VI had not been so rigid and authoritarian in imposing the new Mass, but more like Pope Benedict in allowing both forms to coexist, just imagine where we would be today, perhaps a new springtime for the Church rather than the summertime of meltdown!

One extreme is made up of those who ⎯⎯ claiming the strongest allegiance to the Church and the magisterium ⎯⎯ reject and repudiate in practice the very principles of the Council and their subsequent application and reformation as well as the measured carrying out of these principles by the work of the Holy See and the conferences of bishops under our Christ-given authority. Such people diminish the Church’s authority under pretext of tradition; their obedience to that authority is merely lip-service. They draw the faithful away from the ties of obedience to the See of Peter as well as from their lawful bishops. They repudiate the authority of today in favor of that of another age…

…For our part, in the name of tradition, we beseech all our children and all Catholic communities to celebrate the rites of the restored liturgy with dignity and fervent devotion. Use of the new Ordo Missae is in no way left up to the choice of priests or people…
…In virtue of the supreme authority granted to us by Jesus Christ we command the same ready obedience to the other new laws, relating to liturgy, discipline, pastoral activity, made in these last years to put into effect the decrees of the Council. Any course of action seeking to stand in the way of the conciliar decrees can under no consideration be regarded as a work done for the advantage of the Church, since it in fact does the Church serious harm.
(Paul VI, Adress to a consistory, excerpt on loyalty to the Church and the Council, May 24, 1976)

  1. Pope St. Pius V’s “Quo primum” speaks for itself in the case of Montini’s liberal defiance.
