Canon Lawyer on the Validity/Invalidity of the Novus Ordo Sacraments
Canon Lawyer, Doctor of Thomistic Theology and former Secretary to Cardinal Stickler, Fr. Gregory Hesse discusses whether the changes to the sacraments made by Pope Paul VI are valid or not. An absolute must watch. You will learn more than ever before.
Session 7, Canon 13 of the Dogmatic Council of Trent clearly states:
“If any one saith, that the received and approved rites of the Catholic Church, wont to be used in the solemn administration of the sacraments, may be contemned, or without sin be omitted at pleasure by the ministers, or be changed, by whomsoever pastor of the churches, into other new ones; let him be anathema”
*Gregory Hesse, S.T.D., J.C.D. of Vienna, Austria was ordained in 1981 in St. Peter’s Basilica. He held doctorates in both Thomistic theology and Canon Law. From 1986-88 he served as Secretary to Cardinal Stickler at the Vatican. From 1991, he worked in Austria, Germany and the United States giving lectures and producing theological articles that appeared in Catholic Family News, The Fatima Crusader and other journals. He died of complications due to diabetes on 25 January 2006.
Fr. Hesse spoke extensively on the true and false understanding of Papal infallibility and the modern errors in the understanding of sacred tradition, religious liberty and ecumenism brought about by the errors or obscurity and lack of definition in the documents of Vatican II based on established Church teaching from previous councils and Papal encyclicals. He also spoke on the question of the new Mass of Pope Paul VI making distinctions between the terms “valid” and “licit” again supported by past Church teaching.
