Ven something fixed and transcendent and cut and paste it into something of our own design in the fashion of our own ideasBut this is not just a book about the liturgy It is a book about the Catholic faith Of course Catholicism is a faith of dogmas of facts that must be assented to But it is far from only that Those dogmas are lived and bear fruit in the worship of Christ the Incarnate Word Mosebach shows us that worship tracing the threads of Christian belief through the woven cloth of the liturgy in in the Latin Rite In tracing these threads he also shows us where they have been cut broken or frayed as that cloth was trimmed cut and re stitched in the liturgical reformBecause this is a book about the Catholic faith and one which shows it in its highest and purest expression in the Mass it is an excellent introduction to the faith To someone inuiring into Catholicism or just someone who can t uite see what we believe and why I would recommend this book ahead of any apologetic or dogmatic text Of course such things are necessary But Mosebach presents a vision of the faith and such a thing is needed before arguments about this or that dogma can have any effectAlso of note is Mosebach s familiarity with the Eastern Rite churches both of the Orthodox communions Eastern and Oriental Orthodoxy and the Eastern Catholic churches He refers time and again to the eastern liturgies for parallels to illuminate a practice in the Latin rite and as examples of the ancient teaching of the Church about her liturgy It is clear that the Novus Ordo heralded in some uarters as moving nearer to the Eastern rite in fact cuts off the worship of the Roman church from any liturgical connection to the churches of the East Enjoyable on so many levels I hope there are translations of Mosebach 6 Stars A delightful collection of reflections on the Traditional Latin Mass through the eyes of an artist Mosebach isn t overly concerned with aesthetics but rather explains how the form and content of art and a fortiori of liturgy cannot be separated He provides common sense responses to so called liturgical reform Really really remarkable book I don t know that I can do it justice with a review Mosebach is a genius who offers a View On The Liturgical on the liturgical of the last 40 "Years That It Indispensable " that it indispensable came away with an incredible appreciation of the Extraordinary Form and its riches Alongside Hitchcock s Catholicism and Modernity and Jackson s Nothing Superfluous Mosebach s book rounds out the trifecta of Most Important Nonfiction Books About Postconciliar Catholicism Mosebach s writing style which can jump from logical reasoning to personal anecdote to historical events was a little difficult to get used to but so immensely vindicating More of a rant than an argument against the Mass of Paul VI though a literary and beautiful one Brilliant in parts the book is uneven and lacks coherence Well worth reading however Would have liked to have read the entire #Book Without The Removal #without the removal some choice bits that were in the original Ge. In the Church Excerpts from the Mosebach tour de force On ‘refurbishing’ old churches “No one who really believes in the power ofprayer would be so reckless as to scorn and wreck something that has been sanctified by prayer” On the net result of the changes at Mass “To put it crudely the liturgy disappeared and what did the congregation see in its place A ‘presider’ in billowing garments his mouth opened in joyful song” On his rediscovery of the old Latin Mass after being away “I was fulfilling the most important duty of human existenceand I was doing this for all the others who did .
Means of prayer have been ripped from their hands Many people too concerned about these issues will ask Isn t it still possible to celebrate the new liturgy of Pope Paul VI worthily and reverently Naturally it is possible but the very fact that it is possible is the weightiest argument against the new liturgy While the liturgy is going on time is suspended liturgical time is different from time that elapses outside the church s walls It is Golgatha time the time of the hapax the uniue and sole Sacrifice it is a time that contains all times and none 31 32 Mosebach writes beautifully and with that artist s sensibility seems to unlock all what lies beneath the TLM Very readable and very enlightening I couldn t agree This is not so much a work of theology but a love letter to the Tridentine Rite The author develops his appreciation of the mass from a little incident that he happenned to observe of some ladies washing purificators He traces the emotional development of the Church s liturgy as a history of growing conscious of the Real Presence There is a tremendous amount of luturgical history in this book but this book does not advocate the Old Rite because it is old but because of it appropriateness as an outlet for the piety of the Faithful He is not opposed to organic development but he does not think that going back to standing means anything to our generation Thus he dashes innovation from history The early chapter on plain chant was very interesting from what I could gather some distinctions he made about intonations of the Amen lost on my untrained ears However the chapter on Liturgy and Art was very much my speed Indeed form is no mere secondary aspect to ritual My only caveat with the book were the last two capters Although i enjoyed the excerpt of that novel and the meditation on Mathew s geneology I think that should have been edited out Otherwise a constructive book Great to see a book on the subject that is not written by a liturgist or a theologian The author here is merely a lay man in the pews charting the apparent destruction of the Roman liturgy from the time of the 1960s Even in the English there is great style of language The title would lead ou to think that this Is A Polemic It Is a polemic It is sets out not to attack the Novus Ordo Mass but to defend and commend the Tridentine Rite or what he prefers to call The Mass of St Gregory the Great But this is no narrow academic study of the liturgy or its history Mosebach is a novelist and he shows us the Mass in its splendor He shows us the intimate connection between Catholic belief and Catholic practice embodied in the liturgy He shows us what was lost to the faithful when those charged by Christ to hand on the faith once delivered for all the saints instead ripped the prayer books from their handsThe heresy in uestion which the English translation of the title renders formlessness remember that Mosebach writes in German is not just the heresy that besets the Church today but the world It is the heresy that we can take something gi. Took note His view of the new rite of Mass in force since Vatican II goes deeper than any other et published Mosebach sees the normative Mass today precisely because it is at the core of Catholic life for most souls as the tragic product of wholesale manipulation and compromise with the world from its gestures and rubrics or lack of them to its bad translations and committee invented prayers But he does not stop with his evaluation of the new Mass He defends the old and summons fellow Catholics to drop their prejudices against it embrace it as their forefathers did and restore it to its proper place. When I discovered the beauty and reverence of the Latin Mass some ears ago a parishioner recommended to me THE HERESY OF FORMLESSNESS by Martin Mosebach It is a wonderful exposition on what the Church has lost in adopting the Novus Ordo over what is now called the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite Mosebach is not a theologian but a German writer and an artist and writes freuently on art and literature so he approaches the subject with those uniue sensibilities His opening In am not a convert or a proselyte I have had no sudden and spectacular illumination My roots in religion were feeble for a long time I cannot say with any certainty when they began to grow perhaps it was when I reached twenty five At any rate slowly but surely they did begin to grow I am inclined to think that these roots are deep by now and are continually growing though as before in a way that is hardly ascertainable What set this process in motion a process that has not et reached its end was my acuaintance with the old Catholic liturgy 13 It is probably no longer arguable that Mosebach is correct when he cites that the changes in the liturgy from Vatican II have led to a degradation in reverence by many parishioners which includes everything from talking visiting dressing improperly general misbehavior before and during Mass coming late leaving early the loss of beautiiful sacred music the Gregorian chants to vapid contemporary hymns and guitar choirs fewer men entering the priesthood an overall dumbing down of Catholic teachings contemporary church architecture befitting a concert hall than a house designed and built to the glory of God increase in the busy work of lay liturgy committees mucking about where they should leave well enough alone Much of what Mosebach believes can be summed up I think "in this one short excerpt I admit uite openly that I am one of those " this one short excerpt I admit uite openly that I am one of those folk who look at the surface the external appearance of things in order to judge their inner nature their truth or their spuriousness The doctrine of supposedly inner values hidden under a dirty and decrepit shell is something I find highly suspicious 15 More recently to uote Fr Barron Beauty is a pathway to God I think this is much of what Mosebach is trying to say Beauty in the liturgy the music the artwork the icons the worship space and that in the last 50 ears we ve lost a lot of that I do not recall who said it but to paraphrase the external informs the internal meaning how we dress act show reverence all of it informs our inner life theses external things are not insignificant In a sense we are what we reverence we are how we outwardly present ourselves What Mosebach is saying is that the old Rite informed us well through its signs and symbols its language its posture it imparted that onto the parishioners Mosebach goes on to say I have described my conviction that it is impossible to retain reverence and worship without their traditional forms Of course there will always be people who are so filled with grace that they can pray there will always be people who are so filled with grace that they can pray when the. “Could be the most powerful and effective vindication of the old Latin Mass ever written” writes Thomas E Woods Jr historian and NY Times national best selling author “One of the rare ‘must read’ books about the Latin Mass It lays bare the obtuseness of those who would treat the immemorial Roman rite as a text in need of editing” The Heresy of Formlessness The Roman Liturgy and Its Enemy By Martin Mosebach German writer Martin Mosebach is as famous in his country as Tom Wolfe is in ours So when he wrote a book about the destruction of the old Latin Mass Church leaders and the secular world.
