Season 3, Work of Human Hands, Episode 4: The Mass as an Assembly

Work of Human Hands, by Father Anthony Cekada

Work of Human Hands, by Father Anthony Cekada

On this episode of Work of Human Hands, we dive into the "nuts and bolts" of the fundamental theological changes in the Novus Ordo Mass from the Traditional Latin Mass.

We talk about the very foundation that was laid which has caused most of us to experience the abominations that we have had to endure at one point or another. We will cover the topics of Boyer's idea of the Mass as an "assembly" of the people of God, the destruction of the fundamental understanding of the Real Presence, the entire concept of the Priest-Presider of the assembly at the Lord's Supper instead of a Priest offering a propitiatory sacrifice to God the Father in the re-presentation the sacrifice of calvary. We will cover the notion of the "people of God" offering the Mass and not the Priest himself being the one and only person who can offer the Sacrifice of the Mass to God. We will also cover the destruction of the vertical dimension of the mass, and reducing it to the horizontalism which is so prevalent in the Novus Ordo.

Finally, we will conclude with the de-regulation of the liturgy and how it has completely destroyed the universality of the faith as presented in the Novus Ordo Mass.
This is an episode you will not want to miss!
