Schneider: Liturgical Reform Pushes God Out of the Mass

The Catholic Mass
. Bishop Athanasius Schneider will publish the English interview book "The Catholic Mass" next January with Sophia Press. It was written in collaboration with the Italian church musician Aurelio Porfiri, is divided into 12 chapters, and explains the Mass. The book can be pre-ordered now. Schneider gave several interviews about the book in the USA last week.

Mass is focused on Man

Putting God Aside.
Speaking to EWTN, Schneider said readers of the book should recognise the beauty and richness of the Mass and be grateful for this unspeakable gift. For Schneider, the deepest core of the current crisis in the Church is an anthropocentric attitude that places man at the centre and Christ to the side, even in the liturgy. In the New Rite, this manifests itself in particular by “presiding" towards the people.

Liturgical reform is a tragedy

Liturgical Reform – a tragedy.
Schneider gave another interview to Steve Bannon's "War Room” saying that the introduction of the Novus Ordo in 1969 represented a drastic revolution of the rite of Mass. For Schneider, the liturgical reform is a tragedy. Quote, "We have to go back to the Mass of all times." For 2000 years, he explained, the Church never carried out a liturgical revolution. That was first done by Paul VI, he said, and was against the nature of the Church. Liturgical reform was wanted to accommodate Protestants and to emphasise a meal aspect of Mass which is only secondary.

Old Mass not "Tridentine" nor private property of a pope

Sad.
Speaking to Crisis Magazine, Schneider stressed that the term "Tridentine Mass" is wrong. The Mass, he said, is many centuries old and was merely adopted and codified at the Tridentine Council. For Schneider it is sad that Francis is trying to destroy this centuries-old treasure of the Church with Traditionis custodes. Quote: "The traditional form of the Mass is the property of the whole Church of all times. It is not the private property of a pope or a bishop. If they ban it, they commit a grave abuse against the common good of the Church."
P. O'B
And Paul VI made it his property to outlaw, and he has been canonized. The Church doesn't make sense anymore. Was he really the pope? If so, what good is the papacy, if a pope can help destroy the Church?

The Mother of God even told us not to change the Liturgy!
