Fr Hesse labels the NOM as generally invalid as well as illicit. He explains that the Sacrifice must take place in order for Grace to be available. That Grace is God himself. If the NOM has no Sacrifice, then there is no Mass, and therefore no Grace.
Furthermore, we can never tell if the NOM is valid because the sacrificial nature of the Mass is downplayed or outright removed. And when there is doubt about the sacrificial nature of the Mass, we run the risk of worshiping a cookie. Fr Hesse reiterates the necessity to stay away from doubtful sacraments.
Fr Hesse also states that the NOM was never decreed but was merely published by Pope Paul VI. He also states that the infallible Council of Trent forbade the creation of a new Rite or a new Mass.
Here are some quotations from this conference:
• Do not participate in something which is against Divine Law.
• Do not participate in something which is doubtful.
• Follow the safer course. The safer course cannot be to attend the New Mass which you don’t even know if it’s valid or not.
• You cannot sanctify Sunday by doing something wrong.
• Illicit means it is against Divine Law.
• The New Mass is a Protestant Mass.
• The New Mass was written by Protestants.
• The New Liturgy is illicit and you cannot participate in it.
• In most cases in today’s parishes, you receive a cookie and nothing else.
Is the post-Vatican II Church the Conciliar Church or the Roman Catholic Church?
In the past four years, the nSSPX no longer refers to the post-Vatican II Church as the Conciliar Church (a term used by ABL). Instead, the nSSPX wants us to believe the post-Vatican II Church is the Catholic Church.
At the 25:16 mark of the tape “The Mess Manifest …”, Fr Hesse comments:
“That means it [the post-Vatican II Church] is a fully and completely completely heretical Church and Bishop Tissier de Mallerais of the Society of St Pius X very very rightly said it is a Gnostic sect.”
As Fr Hesse then points out, Gnosticism is Satanic.
Therefore the post-Vatican II Church is not the Roman Catholic Church and should be identified as the Conciliar Church. So, stay away from it!!!
2) The teaching of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre which follows:
“The current problem of the Mass is an extremely serious problem for the Holy Church. I believe that if the dioceses and seminaries and works that are currently done are struck with sterility, it is because the recent deviations drew upon us the divine curse. All the efforts that are made to hang on to what is being lost, to reorganize, reconstruct, rebuild, all that is struck with sterility, because we no longer have the true source of holiness which is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Profaned as it is, it no longer gives grace, it no longer makes grace pass.” (Archbishop Lefebvre, August 1972, priestly retreat; can be found in A Bishop Speaks)
I am happy to announce that Br. Theophilus of the Trinity and Sr. Bonaventura-Magdalena of Jesus, both of New Zealand, made their profession into the Third Order Secular of St. Francis on October 16, 2016. Deo gratias! The ceremony was conducted by Fr. Edward MacDonald. We thank Father for receiving them during his visit. Below are a few pictures of the ceremony.
May St. Francis shower Br. Theophilus and Sr. Bonaventura-Magdalena with the graces necessary to live faithfully the Rule of Third Order Secular for the rest of their lives.
Today is the 99th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima, Portugal. 2016 is also 87 years since Our Lady of Fatima requested the Consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart by the pope in union with the bishops of the world. No pope has yet done it according to Our Lady’s request. Therefore, let us honour Our Lady of Fatima, console Her for those who have not heeded Her request, and beg Her for the coming of the Angelic Pope, Peter II, who will release the full Third Secret of Fatima and finally consecrate Russia to Her Immaculate Heart in union with the bishops of the world.
