Season 3, Work of Human Hands, Episode 5: The Cleverness of the Revisers

Work of Human Hands, by Father Anthony Cekada

Work of Human Hands, by Father Anthony Cekada

On this month's episode of Work of Human Hands, we will be discussing in great detailThe Ottaviani Intervention, it's background, principal objections, effects, and key figures. Anyone familiar with the fight for Tradition will know well the name Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani, but might not be quite familiar with his earth-shaking criticisms of the New Mass of Paul VI. When we study these writings, we see clearly that His Eminence attacked the New Mass on the level of doctrine and morals, not aesthetics and preference.  We will go through one-by-one his objections and the reaction of Paul VI to them which gives one a very revealing look into Paul VI's mind on both the Council and the New Mass itself.

Additionally, we will cover the topic of the revised Forward to the General Instruction of the Roman Missal which did its best to try to wash away the Protestant/Modernist essence contained in the first edition, but in doing so, proved that it was nothing more than a dirty hatchet job on true Catholic theology of the Mass itself. This episode will be jam packed with an inside look into the first "shots" fired at evil that was the New Mass and that would inspire succeeding generations to take up the fight against that which is obviously not Catholic - the New Mass.

Join us as Father Anthony Cekada, author of the book and assitant pastor of St. Gertrude the Great Catholic Church in West Chester, Ohio is joined by host Justin Soeder as they conduct another installment of Work of Human Hands.
