Books & Media for Traditional Catholics

In the days of Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903) he often found himself having to explain Catholic teaching.  For example, only priests are ordained to "say Mass" and only priests have the "power and authority" to confect the sacraments.  Laymen are not so authorized.  

Catholic prayer books with Latin Mass translations were non-existent.  Popes did not authorize Mass prayerbooks with English translations. Despite this papal prohibition, Catholic publishers produced these prayerbooks with English translations and American bishops stamped their "imprimaturs."   To this very day, there is no English translation yet approved by the proper authorities in Rome.

Why did the Church not approve such prayerbook translations?  Perhaps the answer can be found in the aftermath of Vatican II when "New Mass" in English (the Novus Ordo) made its appearance.  Many deacons, lay readers and often lay preachers actually believe that they also are "priests of a sort, who also   say Mass."  Some very proud   laymen seemed to have the attitude that they could say it even   better than the priest!

In the times following the Anglican takeover from the Catholic Church, many Catholics in England believed the Anglican service to be rightfully and validly Catholic since the Anglican was presented to them  by their own local Catholic Church. [This is similar to our day when Latin Mass was forbidden and   New Mass was imposed by the local bishops.]

Because Catholics were confused by the use of the Anglican translations used in Catholic prayerbooks, Pope Leo convened a commission to study the Anglican question once more, despite the fact that it had already been declared invalid. He appointed Abbot Aidan Gasquet to head his study. The commission found the Anglican to be "null and void." But the damage had already been done.  While the translations were correct for the Anglicans, they were incorrect for Catholics and were infecting Catholic doctrine. [Pope Leo issued Apostolicae in 1896.]

Why did Abbot Gasquet come to America in 1913?  He gave sermons in which he compared the canonized Catholic Latin Mass to the Anglican service. Now we know how "immaculata hostiam" is mistranslated to "spotless host."  Non-Catholics like the Anglicans   believe the bread and wine to be merely symbolic of Christ.

Immaculate Victim, Christ, is offered!  Is this not why He was born–to be offered in Sacrifice, to rise from the dead and to be "active and alive" among us in the Holy Eucharist and Sacraments? 

From the earliest days of the Church, efforts were made to change Christ's teaching and to change the Faith. It was the devil's plan. Satan had to destroy the Church before he could then destroy every vestige of Christianity in the world and all its governments.

In our day, in the recent past of the 1960s, the false media played up all manner of errors the Church was fighting and made news heroes of all the experts of Vatican II who spoke out in favor of the Church men changing the rules to embrace the errors.  The Church became politically correct to the world while becoming politically deaf to the need for God’s law and order in its Catholic people. This breakdown of the Church led to the present attempt to destabilize the governments of the whole world in favor of satanic chaos.

There appears to be an effort to bring back the Latin Mass. Let us pray that this is accomplished soon and that the Church becomes prayerfully attuned to God and His Will “By the very fact that you changed the words indicate that you do not have the intention to do what the Church has always done." (paraphrased Pope Leo to the Anglicans.)  See The Abbot & Me on Liturgy by Fr. Paul Trinchard.

A final note: Pope Leo was petitioned to add St. Joseph to the Canon of martyrs in the Mass. He refused explaining that no one, not even he as pope, could change what Christ had ordained.

Also: Not even the priest on the altar had an English translation of the Latin Mass in his altar Mass Book!


According to the Preponderance of Evidence
(the product of 15 years of study)
by Fr. Paul Trinchard, S.T.L.

In the aftermath of Henry VIII, Catholics suffered martyrdom upon discovery of Holy Ordered priests offering valid Canonized Latin Masses in homes. In 1896, after centuries of uncertainty, it was Pope Leo XIII himself, who declared (Anglican) “New Mass” and even “New Ordinal” “null and void” or invalid.

Catholics, are you aware that the Anglican problem of invalid “New Mass” and “New Ordinal” is now the Catholic problem of our times? Does Pope Leo XIII’s dogmatic definition apply to the present “New Mass” and “New Ordinal?” Has the Catholic Church prospered since the 1960's when the Bishops’ imposed their “New Mass” and “New Ordinal?”

“Hail, Mary,” the one and only channel through whom graces come to us, or through whom the Holy Ghost operates, bestowing graces. Through Holy Mary, He operates somewhat as the Second Person of the Trinity operates: through His human nature.

Holy Mary totally loves God and is totally obedient to God’s Will.  God responds and graces her to be Benedicta, the blessed human one through whom Benedictus, God’s full and only Blessing, Jesus Christ, comes as Saviour. 

In God’s mystery of the Mass, the Holy Ghost operates through Benedicta.  Holy Mary is the channel for the graces empowering Christ-priest to bring Christ’s Sacrifice among us in a mystical, sacramental way.

Thus, Christ-priest, acting ex officio in persona Christi, somehow and awesomely acts because of and through Holy Mary, the channel of all graces.  It can also be affirmed that the priest is like unto Mary: but, instead of “Be it done unto me according to God’s Will,” he is challenged to determine: “Be it done by me as God Wills in total obedience by my saying the  Canonized Latin Mass Liturgy.”  

Excerpt from Latin Mass Prayers Explained, p.158
