atin Mass or 'Mass of the Ages'

has been celebrated in the Roman Catholic Church since the fourth century. Over time, the liturgy adopted more rich theological prayers and reverent gestures. Today, the Missal of 1962 ensures these sacred elements like Latin, beautiful chant, Communion on the tongue, and ad orientem (prayer facing east) are practiced universally.

FREQUENTLY
ASKED QUESTIONS

I.
When will 'Mass of the Ages: Guardians of Tradition' be released?

Mass of the Ages is a trilogy of documentary films. The first two episodes are available for free on YouTube (click here). The third episode, Guardians of Tradition, is currently in post-production. There will be test screenings of the film this summer (2023).

II.
Didn't Vatican II create a new Mass?

This is a common misconception. Vatican II wrote the guidelines for how the new Mass was to be created in a document called 'Sacrosanctum Concilium.' Then a commission called 'the Consilium' created the new Mass.

III.
Is this series against Vatican II?

No. Episode 2, A Perfect Storm, explores what happened after Vatican II. It shows how the creation of the new Mass went far beyond the prescriptions of Vatican II. We are critical of those who pushed through their own radical agenda to destroy the silence, mystery, and transcendence of the Mass.

IV.
How can you say that one form of Mass is better? Aren't they both of infinite value since they represent the sacrifice of Christ?

We don't believe that going to TLM automatically makes you a better Catholic. Both forms of the Mass are valid and approved by the Church.

But we believe that the TLM is a better setting for the mystery taking place. The same diamond in different settings will have different effects. Some rings will allow the light to shine through more clearly. We believe the Catholic faith (the diamond) is more clearly expressed in a Traditional Latin Mass.

V.
Isn't the Vatican trying to shut down the Latin Mass? How can you double Latin Masses?

Our Holy Father, Pope Francis certainly seems to want to end the use of the 1962 missal. We are NOT advising anyone to disobey their bishop or the Holy Father.

But we are striving to produce educational courses and online resources to preserve Traditional Latin Masses in the minds and hearts of priests and faithful.

We believe that a priest’s prayer life will be richly blessed by learning this form of prayer. So we will continue to train priests even if they aren’t able to say this Mass in public. So that when these restrictions are lifted (in 5, 10, or more years) we will see a new renaissance of Latin Mass growth and attendance.

Our plan to train priests, educate the faithful, and DOUBLE Latin Masses is something that will continue, but the timeline is in God’s hands.

VI.
Are donations tax-deductible?

Yes! Mass of the Ages Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible.

VII.
What is your stance on the SSPX?

The Society of St. Pius X is a Catholic priestly society in an irregular canonical situation with Rome, but Vatican authorities allow the faithful to attend their chapels for Mass. Pope Francis has given them faculties to hear confessions and witness weddings.

VIII.
Pope Francis said there was a pastoral problem with the TLM that persuaded him to restrict it with 'Traditionis Custodes'. So how can you promote it?

The data suggests that Pope Francis might have been misinformed about this. After giving the bishops the tools to restrict Latin Masses in their dioceses about 70% of bishops have NOT restricted ANY celebrations. Only 10% of bishops have banned the Latin Mass. Read the bishop's responses HERE.

Mass of the Ages: Guardians of Tradition will unpack the data and show how the future of the Latin Mass is filled with hope.
