Watch a Mass narrated by Fulton Sheen! December 16, 2010

Posted by Tantumblogo in awesomeness, Dallas Diocese, General Catholic, Latin Mass, North Deanery, sadness.

What a great blessing!  The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, of course, the Traditional Latin Mass, filmed in 1941 at a church in Chicago and narrated by Fulton Sheen!  There was such obvious care and reverence in the celebration of this Mass…..not the incomprehensible 20 minute mumbled low Mass I’ve been told was so dominant back during this time. 

I pray that we may see the Asperges return to all Masses, EF or Ordinary Form.

Bishop Sheen says “it’s a long established principle of the  Church never to completely drop from her public worship any ceremony, object, or prayer which once occupied a place in that worship….”.  What was once a principle was dropped as a result of changes in the liturgy that occurred after Vatican II, as numerous ceremonies, objects, and prayers were dropped as so much “useless repitition” and “ridiculous triumphalism.”  My heart aches…..

Note: about 20 minutes were cut out of the celebration as presented on Youtube to comply with certain Youtube restrictions, notably file size.
