Questioning the Validity ...

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 "" 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. (This work is posted with the specific permission of the author.) (47K)

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. (3K)

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.
