Thanks be to God and because of the post-Vatican II New Liturgical Movement, we have today thanks as well to Pope Benedict and to Pope Francis who authorized it, the Ordinariate's Roman Missal: "Divine Liturgy, the Missal"
We also have the revised so-called new and improved 1970 Roman Missal undergoing a "reform of the reform" thanks to Pope Benedict which is making its celebration more 1962 Roman Missal-like. Much more official reform is expected to come within the decade to make the 1970 Roman Missal more like the first truly new Roman Missal that the Ordinariate has which will include many 1962 Roman Missal elements:
And of course we have the 1962 Liturgical patrimony of the Church returned to local parishes by Pope Benedict the Great!! Ideological, corrupt liturgists didn't see this coming and are trying in vain to suppress this Mass once again. They will not succeed:
The new post Vatican II liturgical movement of the new millennium promotes the most important liturgical task today is for both traditionalists and progressives to come together to affirm that there exists now two forms of the one Roman Rite.
Today, we have 20/20 hindsight about how a corrupt ideological version of Vatican II was implemented by progressive liturgists in the most pre-Vatican II authoritarian way. The only way for these corrupt liturgists to imposed from on high the "new" Mass was to rid the world of the older one, the 1962 Missal. These ideologues said that the old Mass was no good and even harmful, and that the new and so-called improved Mass would replace the old and useless one by authoritarian fiat or their own edict which of course they had no authority to do so, none whatsoever!
Of course no pope has said that the 1962 Liturgical patrimony was to be suppressed and that the fabricated liturgy was completely perfect and wonderful for the Church to include Pope Paul VI who lamented time and time again the abuse of the new Roman Missal as implemented by corrupt liturgists. He did not repress the 1962 Missal altogether either. Older priests were allowed to continue celebrating it and England very soon after the Council was given a special indult to maintain the older, traditional liturgy in certain places.
Pope St. John Paul II expanded the indult for the 1962 Missal worldwide and encouraged bishops worldwide to allow this Mass to those who requested it but still under the tight ideological control of local bishops often beholden to corrupt liturgical theologians.
Then of course Pope Benedict expanded the use of the 1962 Liturgical patrimony almost unrestricted and gave the authority to celebrated directly to priests themselves by placing it on par with the so-called new and improved Mass and liturgies that flow from it. This was breathtaking in scope and destabilized the progressive liturgical ideologues with their gestapo-like authoritarianism in maintaining an exclusive death grip over how the new Mass would be celebrated and the older one suppressed.
Pope Francis who will, with the help of God, fully reintegrate the SSPX back into the full canonical status with the Church shows by His Holiness' solicitous concern for this ecclesial community on the periphery of the Church, his willingness to allow the two forms of the Latin Rite to coexist with the Ordinary Form ecclesial communities of the Catholic Church, just as the Eastern Rites of the Catholic Church do with their elaborate eastern liturgies. And of course in continuity with the desires of Pope Benedict toward disaffected former Anglicans/Episcopalians, Pope Francis has authorized the first truly new Roman Missal since Vatican II, "Divine Worship, the Missal" which includes not only some Anglican liturgical patrimony consistent with Catholic liturgical doctrine and tradition, but also wonderful recovered elements of the 1962 Roman Missal!
The divisiveness of progressive liturgists who tried to suppress the 1962 Missal after the 1970 one was issued, created the divisions we have now, not what Pope Benedict did in being truly and authentically liberal in allowing both forms to coexist. If this had been allowed in the first place, we would be in a much different place today.
There is no going backwards to 1970's authoritarianism about the reformed liturgy being superior to the one that preceded it. Today they are co-equal. To denigrate either form properly celebrated by saying the black and doing the red is divisive to say the least and not suitable for today's truly post-Vatican II new liturgical renewal!
Elevating the horizontal, sociological aspect of the liturgy to an idol and making it more important than what the Mass is meant to do and every valid Mass does which is to new in an unbloody, palatable way the One Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross for our salvation. The Sacrifice and Banquet of Word and Altar are present in the Church's two forms of the one Latin Rite and this is the foundation that cannot be overwhelmed with silly ecclesiological items that make the Church a self-referential community closed in on itself by a liturgy that sees active participation and laity doing this that and the other as the basis on "good Liturgy!" Poppycock! It is Christ who is the center of the Liturgy and opens a vista to our salvation and gives us grace to strengthen our faith and good works in the world!
Pope Benedict makes very very clear that it isn't either/or when it comes to the two forms of the one Latin Rite, but BOTH/AND! And this is what is truly Catholic!
