Intervention" refers to a writing signed by Cardinals Ottaviani & Bacci ("Short
Critical Study of the Novus Ordo Missae"). It concerns the
Novus Ordo (New Order) Mass promulgated in the wake of the
Second Vatican Council of the 1960's and shortly afterwards imposed on the
faithful. Among other things, it states that...
liturgy will delight all those groups hovering on the verge of apostasy who,
during a spiritual crisis without precedent, now wreak havoc in the Church by
poisoning Her organism and by undermining Her unity in doctrine, worship, morals
It also says that:
Ordo Missae - considering the new elements, susceptible of widely differing
evaluation, which appear to be implied or taken for granted - represents, as a
whole and in detail, a striking departure from the Catholic theology of the Holy
Mass as it was formulated in Session XXII of the Council of Trent, which, by
fixing definitively the 'canons' of the rite, erected an insurmountable barrier
against any heresy which might attack the integrity of the Mystery."
And finally, it states
"To prepare a
complete study of all the pitfalls, dangers and psychologically and spiritually
destructive elements the new rite contains, whether in texts, rubrics or
instructions, would be a vast undertaking."
