WHY ONE CANNOT, IN GOOD FAITH, ATTEND THE NOVUS ORDO


    Because the New Mass, although appearing to conform to the dispositions of Vatican Council II, in reality opposes its instructions, since the Council itself declared its desire to conserve and promote the Traditional Rite.

But this is the very problem of the Council. Because it was not a dogmatic council, but merely a pastoral one where non-Catholic had seemingly more say than Catholic, ambiguity pummeled every document, planting what Michael Davies appropriately calls "Liturgical Time Bombs" that have been exploding and taking its toll of believers over the past 40 years. Had the Council been firm and definitive, there would have been no 'desire' to conserve and promote the Traditional rite, but rather a 'demand' and 'command' that the Traditions handed down not be tampered with. Once the horse is out of the barn, it is very difficult to corral, especially with so many flies of every stripe of heresy infecting it. These very problems were outlined quite clearly by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre (They Have Uncrowned Him and Open Letter to Confused Catholics), Atila Sinke Guimar„es, (The Murky Waters of Vatican II, Animus Delendi I and II) Romano Amerio (Iota Unum), Fr. Ralph Wiltgen (The Rhine Flows into the Tiber) and Father James Wathen in his irrefutable masterpiece The Great Sacrilege. They all document that the Traditional Latin Mass alone provides the divinely ordained formula for true vertical worship of the Triune Divinity. Every Catholic has a moral obligation to abandon the new false religion and return to the True tenets and practices of the Church as practiced from St. Peter through Pope Pius XII. Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani and Cardinal Antonio Bacci back on September 25, 1969 could see this all coming and warned of this inThe Ottaviani Intervention As we know no Pope since Pius XII has listened to the wisdom of Holy Mother Church and for this stubborn, prideful promotion of the church of Vatican II have indeed "incurred the wrath of God and the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul." This is the fifty-third of 62 reasons submitted by the Priests of Campos on Easter Sunday 1982 and endorsed by the late great Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer. Each day we will publish one of the 62 until they're all complete.
