It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

Novus Ordo - Ordinary Form - Missal of Paul VI

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Below are six videos demonstrating what the Vatican INTENDED to accomplish in 1969 with the new mass ("Novus Ordo" or "Ordinary Form") we commonly celebrate today. You'll notice it looks nothing like what is commonly celebrated in English-speaking parishes around the world. Yes, the primary language used here is Latin. That is exactly what Rome originally intended...













Now in contrast the video below represents an Ordinary Form (Novus Ordo) mass as celebrated in most English-speaking parishes. The following video is relatively tasteful, no surprises, but also very typical. You'll notice it's a far cry from what Rome intended with the Second Vatican Council as represented by the above videos...



So after viewing the above videos we have to ask ourselves what went wrong. Why is the typical English celebration of the Novus Ordo so radically different from the Ordinary Form of the mass intended by Pope Paul VI in 1969?
