I call your attention to this article at The American Conservative. It describes the perfectly natural horror that a Catholic– in this case, Evelyn Waugh, author of Brideshead Revisited— experienced upon having the Mass stolen from him, and replaced with the Novus Ordo Missae.
The author describes it thusly:
Waugh’s words in response to this revolution are arresting: “Church-going is now a bitter trial,” he wrote. Elsewhere he said, “the Vatican Council has knocked the guts out of me.” To a friend, he wrote, “I have not yet soaked myself in petrol and gone up in flames, but I now cling to the Faith doggedly without joy.” In another letter to a cleric, he sought to know the least he was “obliged to do without grave sin.” This is remarkable, coming from one of the most famous Catholic writers of the 20th century, one who had previously adored the Mass.
Pardon me, but this is a dodge. The New Mass has killed faith.
If I had been cognizant then of the satanic robbery of my patrimony at the time, I would have lost my.
