Manuscript II. An Acceptable Sacrifice: Reforming the Liturgical Reform
In the second work - An Acceptable Sacrifice - a juxtaposition between the Church’s definition of Liturgy and the Mass with the myriad of post-conciliar liturgical changes makes apparent that there has been a deliberate intent to shift from the Catholic idea of the Mass as a propitiatory sacrifice to the Modernist idea of the “Eucharistic celebration” as a “community meal”. To correct this error, the Church must return to the original conciliar documents and “reform the liturgical reform” according to the mind of the Council Fathers. To this end, the many changes are explored, the Church’s liturgical laws consulted, and Sacrosanctum Concilium re-applied to the preconciliar liturgy.
