Fr. Hesse: The Messed-Up Mass (Part 2) (Remastered Audio)

2 years ago

This is one of Canon Hesse’s best talks on the New Mass. This is Part 2 of 2 of his talk.

Notable topics and quotes from his talk:

“When you go into modern churches today, you will find that every single church is different. Every single priest is different. Every single sermon is different and every single faith is different.” English better for understanding Mass? Novus Ordo Catholics know less about Mass than traditional Catholics who hear it in Latin.

“The New Mass is very accommodating to modern consciences because it doesn't speak about sacrifice, it doesn't speak about penance, it doesn't speak about sin. And isn't that convenient?”

“And I tell you in my priestly authority: if you think you can fulfill your Sunday obligation in the New Mass, you're wrong! You cannot!”

“Do not go to the New Mass: it's a sin!”

New Mass validity vs. licitness

Ecumenism: Catholics “take care of everybody except the Catholics.” Connection of Bugnini’s “Novus Ordo Mass” to “Novus Ordo Seclorum” on dollar bills and New World Order.

Fr. Hesse answers the question, “Why would the Pope and the Church and the upper clergy in Rome allow the Protestants to write the [New] Mass?”

Paul VI contradictions

Contradictions in Vatican II: “I mean either it was crackpots or very clever people who signed this document [of Vatican II].”

Fr. Hesse answers the question about whether there was an imposter with Pope Paul VI.

Where to go to Mass

Salvation of non-Catholics?

“You cannot accept Vatican II and be a Catholic. That's impossible. And I will show this in my next lecture.”

“[…] The Devil is very efficient. And he has a lot of useful idiots to serve him:” the naive who blindly follow the Pope, the brainwashed, and infiltrators. “Unfortunately, I have to say: I have had the doubtful honor of getting to know at least 45 cardinals in Rome – I mean talk to them, meet them – believe me: they're idiots. Many of them. They do not know what is going on because they do not WANT to know.”

“[I know a cardinal], the moment you talk about the inacceptability of Vatican II, his reason just blanks out. […] These people have been brainwashed! […] The enemies of the Church in the 1930s-50s had 30 years at their disposal to DRILL and TAME the Catholic clergy into perfect stubborn military obedience.” True vs. false obedience.

“I'm interested if I follow the Will of Our Lord manifested in the Tradition of the Church, manifested by 260 popes, and not the last three ones. And if the last three popes want me to do something different than all the 260 popes before, I will tell the last three popes to get lost! And I'm in perfect obedience.”

Your responsibility now that you know.

Fr. Gregory Hesse, S.T.D., J.C.D., S.T.L., J.C.L., Canon Lawyer, Doctor of Thomistic Theology, lifelong friend and personal secretary of Cardinal Stickler at the Vatican from 1986-1988 has provided us with many talks and conferences where he gives a no-nonsense, intelligent, learned, and witty exposition and explanation of relevant topics facing contemporary faithful Catholics. Fr. Hesse got to know approximately 45 cardinals while studying and working in Rome for 15 years and he has an uncanny and substantial knowledge of many things. You would be hard-pressed to find another theologian quite like him.

Canon Hesse was related to the Hapsburg royal bloodline. He was born in Vienna in 1952, ordained by Cardinal Marella in St. Peter's Basilica on November 21, 1981, and earned doctorates in Canon Law and Theology from the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) in Rome. He worked as a personal secretary of Cardinal Stickler at the Vatican from 1986 to 1988. He passed away on January 25, 2006. You would be hard-pressed to find another theologian quite like him. A breath of fresh air in today’s widespread climate of many weak, ignorant, and naive clerics and theologians, he was affectionately called by several of his friends during his life “the bull in the china shop.” His example, testimony, and insights no doubt played and will play an important role in Catholic thought and development.

This video and all the remastered audio files at the above link have been professionally touched up to remove as much background noise, pops, crackles, and other audio imperfections as possible. Because the original recordings were done on cassette tapes with less-than-ideal audio equipment, there are a certain amount of audio artifacts and tape hiss that were not possible to entirely remove. However, the remastered audio files are significantly better than the originals.
