The Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Nature of the Novus Ordo Service

The following is a summary of Novus Ordo services (here called "Novus Ordo Messes"), since July 7, 2007, misleadingly termed the "Ordinary" rite, that have been described in TRADITIO Network's Daily Commentaries from the Fathers department. If it was not clear from the beginning, it is certainly clear now, from the evidence of fifty years of the aftermath of the Modernist Vatican II Council, that the Novus Ordo service, which Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger in 2007 officially declared to be the "Ordinary" Rite of the New Order sect, even in the words of its advocates, is based on the errors of Protestantism, Freemasonry, and even paganism.

The examples shown below are some of the most bizarre, yet common versions, and many of them are celebrated by Newchurch bishops and even popes. Some Newchurchers may try to excuse themselves by saying, "It isn't that bad where I go to Mess." Oh, isn't it? Don't you receive the "host," probably really a cookie, into your unconsecrated hands that have touched all kinds of profane objects? Doesn't the presbyter use the vulgar tongue instead of the sacred Latin language of the Catholic and Apostolic rite? Doesn't the Mess you attend differ from the Catholic and Apostolic one in over two thirds of its content? Don't the words of consecration proclaim the heresy of universal salvation? Aside from the increasingly bizarre versions, even the "vanilla" version is spurious at its core.

The examples below are being "approved" and participated in by Newchurch bishops and popes with great enthusiasm. There is no secret about these versions. The bishops and the popes are proud of them. The examples are all drawn from public and official sources, usually press releases from the dioceses or the Vatican Press Office. For larger versions of the photos, details on the Messes, and a commentary on each, use the Site Search engine in the TRADITIO Network's Daily Commentaries from the Fathers department.


The Invalidity of the Novus Ordo Service by Papal Declaration

The Novus Ordo service, in any version, must be rejected as clearly unCatholic, sacrilegious, irreverent, scandalous, blasphemous, idolatrous, and conclusively invalid, because it fails to meet one or more of the three criteria established in Catholic dogmatic and sacramental theology for a valid Mass and most cogently in Pope Leo XIII's Apostolicae Curae. For further information, see CURAE.TXT: Apostolicae Curae Apostolic Letter in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics). The Novus Ordo service fails the Catholic sacramental test of validity even more clearly than the High Anglican service to which the pope was originally referring.


The Great "Motu" Mess Hoax
Also Known as the "Mess of 1962+" and the "Extraordinary Mess"

When the Novus Ordo service had become so ridiculous that even more and more Newchurchers were deserted it, the prelates of the New Order in Newvatican panicked. They needed some ruse to draw back more bodies into the Novus Ordo pews and get money coming back into the collection-plate to pay into the Sex-crimes Fund. Benedict-Ratzinger, therefore, came up with the Great "Motu" Mess Hoax, by which "conservative" Newchurchers would supposedly be drawn back into Novus Ordo temples by a relaxed "indult" (Summorum pontificum of July 7, 2007) for the Vatican II "Mass of Blessed John XXIII," a bastardized form of the Traditional Latin Mass mixed with the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo service. The "Motu" Mess, since July 7, 2007, misleadingly termed the "Extraordinary" rite, is to be simulated under the auspices of the New Order, in Novus Ordo temples, under Novus Ordo presbyters (not traditional priests), on the Novus Ordo "table." A description of a typical "Motu" Mess follows.


A Typical Novus Ordo Service

Novus Ordo Mess

Fr. Billy Bob Presiding at the Altar "Table"
While the Band of Piano, Guitars, and Drums
Renders "Oecumenical" (Protestant) Songs
The Novus Ordo Service is No Mass at All!

You enter the Novus Ordo worship building, which looks much like a Masonic lodge hall, for the Saturday afternoon Mess. People are talking, laughing, chewing gum. Most are casually dressed. The tabernacle is nowhere in sight, so instead of genuflecting, people bow toward the altar "table." The crucifix is absent; it won't be brought in until the entrance procession.

The cantoress approaches the microphone, bare-headed and wearing a coulotte. "Good afternoon," she beams. "Welcome to the Eucharist of the Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Please stand to greet our celebrant, Father Billy Bob, as we sing our opening song, On Eagles' Wings." A small band of piano, guitar, and drums accompanies the opening song. The procession enters from the back of the temple: a female crucifer, two altar girls, a lectoress in street clothes carrying the Novus Ordo lectionary aloft, and finally Fr. Billy Bob in a Novus Ordo alb-cum-chasuble, all smiling and singing along loudly.

The Asperges ceremony before Mass is omitted, as the thought of washing away sins is deprecated. The congregation remains standing as Fr. Billy Bob recites the Protestantized "Opening Prayers," while the band launches into the Lord Have Mercy and Glory to God from the newly-composed Mess of the New Order written in jazz style. Fr. Billy Bob then sits down for the "Liturgy of the Word," imported substantially from the Anglican prayer book and read entirely in the vulgar tongue (or tongues) from the lectern. The band performs its rendition of Taste and See following the "First Reading." After the "Second Reading," the cantoress renders the Oecumenical Alleluia.

After the Gospel is read in a vulgar tongue by a married lay deacon, Fr. Billy Bob gives a brief "homily" on social justice and global warming. "It is a mortal sin not to use florescent bulbs," he warns the congregation. After the We Believe is recited by the congregation, two Lesbians bring forward the "bread," looking for all the world like shortbread cookies, and the grape juice for the "consecration." Meanwhile the lectoress leads the congregation in the Protestant Bidding Prayers, praying for all politically-correct groups and causes.

After the "Presto" Eucharistic Prayer, so called because it is over before you know it, with its revised "consecration" to conform to the heresy of universal salvation, the congregation launches into one of the familiar acclamation songs imported from Protestant services. Shortly after, the congregation recites the Lord's Prayer in the vulgar tongue, with the de rigeur Protestant ending, hands joined across the pews.

When communion-time arrives, all of the congregation, confessed or not, fasting or not, including known public sinners with divorced-and-remarried (or perhaps annulled in a Newchurch "quickie" divorce), approach, many taking "communion" in the hand from the eucharistic ministresses while Fr. Billy Bob sits in his giant Protestant "presider's" chair. Some also receive the grape juice from a ceramic goblet crudely fabricated by schoolchildren. A few folks try to kneel, but they interrupt the flow of the line and thus receive a hostile glare from the ministresses. When they return to their seats, most of the congregation sits without making any thanksgiving.

When Fr. Billy Bob proclaims, "The Eucharist is finished. Thank God," the band strikes up a rousing rendition of When the Saints Come Marching In, including the Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla. As soon as Fr. Billy Bob leaves the altar, the congregation practically trips over him on the way out, eager to get in those few extra holes of golf before nightfall!
