Description:

Pope Paul's New Mass
Liturgical Revolution: Vol. III
by Michael Davies

Pope Paul's New Mass is the third and final book of the Liturgical Revolution trilogy. It is the unparalleled history of how
the New Mass was devised, created, and implemented. Beyond this, a list of the manifold liturgical problems of the past generation is
documented: from Mass facing the people and revolutionary legislation to Communion in the hand and the problem of the Offertory. For over
thirty years this book has been considered the most thorough critique of the New Mass in the English language. Michael Davies, former
president of Una Voce, was one of the earliest critics of the liturgical changes in the Mass after Vatican II.

By the mid-1970s the crisis within the Church was deepening. In his general research on the various novelties that were being introduced he
had amassed a huge amount of data on the Council and how the great majority of the Fathers had been deceived by the well-orchestrated plan of a
clique of European bishops and their liturgical advisers. Michael Davies argued that the Church's attempted headlong rush into unity with other
Christian bodies would, in fact, have the adverse effect to that being proclaimed and was leading swiftly to its decline. Thus was born his great
trilogy, Liturgical Revolution. His first volume, Cranmer's Godly Order (1976), examined the Protestant Reformation, what
happened and why. His second work, Pope John's Council (1977), was written to provide an objective and documented explanation of the fact
that the Church in the West is disintegrating and that the responsibility for this disintegration must be laid at the door of the Second Vatican
Council. His third volume, Pope Paul's New Mass (1980), provided a detailed examination of the development of the Roman rite, the
liturgical legislation pouring out from the Vatican during and after the Council, the prayers and rubrics of the new rite of Mass, and the
devastating impact of the changes on the Church throughout the world. (Leo Darroch, President of Una Voce International)
