The Traditional Latin 'Tridentine' Mass differs from the
Novus Ordo Mass (fabricated by men in the 1960's) in many & significant
ways. Besides the many noticeable external differences (e.g. language,
orientation of the priest, use of incense, lack of 'lay ministers', etc.), there
are many notable substantive differences between the Latin 'Tridentine' Mass and the Novus
Ordo Mass. In fact, it has been estimated that around 70% of the traditional
Mass has been replaced or eliminated from the Novus Ordo (New Order) Mass of the
1960's. Of the remainder, various parts may have been changed, leaving just a
small amount unchanged. Clearly, there are numerous and significant differences
between the 'Tridentine' Mass and the Novus Ordo Mass. For additional detail concerning various differences between the
