March, 1969 text of "QUESTIONING THE VALIDITY of the Masses Using
the New, ALL-English Canon" by Patrick Henry Omlor. Written prior to the
advent of the Novus Ordo Missae of Paul VI, this book is
nevertheless a devastating indictment of same, which only brought into
fruition all of the errors in sacramental theology that Mr. Omlor discusses.
A "must have" for all traditional Catholics. Read it in conjunction with
files "qtv2.zip" and "Special Issue on the Holy Mass" (Fortes in
Fide, Volume 1, Number 4) below. You will be able to effectively
defend your position that the (not so new) "Mass" of Paul VI is INVALID.

Omlor's 1990 follow-up to "Questioning the Validity" above, entitled
"Questioning the Validity of McCarthy's Case". Any hearsay you may have
heard about someone's rebutting Omlor's conclusion about the INvalidity
of early vernacular predecessors of the Novus Ordo Missae is a
fantasy, as this powerful work will show. While it is principally
concerned with rebutting various "arguments" by a Msgr. McCarthy, it also
mentions in passing some earlier objections proposed by Fr. William G.
Most back in 1968. It also serves to update the original "QTV" to more
specifically address the changes made in the Novus Ordo Missae. It
is a "must have" addition to your collection of writings concerning the
INvalidity of the "New Mass".
Special Issue on the Holy Mass
The fourth (Volume 1, Number 4) English issue of FORTES IN FIDE.
Essentially, this is a reprint of Fr. Barbara's "Special Issue on the
Holy Mass" (1975). It relates "A Disquieting Similarity Between the
Protestant Reforms of 1549 and the Reforms of Paul VI Since Vatican II" and includes
an incisive analysis of the "Novus Ordo Missae" of Paul VI based on an
analogy with Pope Leo XIII's Apostolic Letter "Apostolicae Curae" (1896)
on the INvalidity of Anglican Orders (and it likewise comes to the
conclusion that the "Novus Ordo Missae" of Paul VI is INvalid). After
Omlor's "Questioning the Validity" (above), I consider this file to be the
second most valuable on this site.
On the proper form for the consecration of the wine, taken from the
Catechism of the Council of Trent. Clearly shows why the expression "for all"
should NOT be used.
