Another article-share from OnePeterFive, this one from Dr. Peter Kwasniewski on a topic dear to us here at Whispers, namely the Roman Rite.
It presents one of the more concise and readable “layman’s guides” to the incoherence and violence involved in a so-called Reform of the Reform project, a theme we have taken up here and elsewhere.
A worthy excerpt from the 1P5 piece:
A “beautiful, reverent” Novus Ordo is as much a product of the choices of its celebrant as is a bongo-drum clown Mass or a suburban talk show with a bevy of EMHCs… If the priest were to celebrate the new Mass “in continuity,” he would be fostering an illusion of continuity that largely does not exist, whether one views it euchologically, ceremonially, or phenomenologically; he would be artificially extending the lifespan of an entity that is better off dying. Yet if the same priest were to celebrate the new Mass “in discontinuity,” letting it “be itself,” he would thereby contribute to the breakdown of Catholicism’s internal identity and the custodianship of its inheritance. In short: damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

And Bravo the Restoration!
