The largest workshop for the Traditional Latin Mass in the world, Ars Celebrandi, was held this summer in Licheń, Poland, and featured Archbishop Guido Pozzo, Secretary of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei—the Holy See office responsible for the traditional Roman liturgy.


Archbishop Pozzo celebrated Solemn Pontifical Mass in the Licheń Basilica, presided over Pontifical vespers, and presented a lecture entitled "The Ancient Roman Liturgy and the Contemporary Crisis of Faith”. In this lecture he pointed out the today’s crisis of Catholic belief—which is no less than a cataclysm in Western civilization—has three dimensions:  The secularization of faith, hope and charity, sharing a common denominator—the loss of interest in the supernatural and the vision of God, so that only that which is visible to human eyes is considered meaningful.

He stated that this contemporary heresy is a new heresy, different from all previous ones in the history of the Church, in which only certain particular aspects of faith were challenged. Whereas now it is the Faith as a whole that is under attack, both within and without the Church. This crisis cannot be solved without eliminating its cause—that is, without restoring God to His proper and central place. And the Holy Mass in the extraordinary form of the Roman rite is, Archbishop Pozzo said, vital for this restoration of the Sacred.


Commenting on this last remark of Ab. Pozzo, Fr. Zuhlsdorf added (here):


We need the Extraordinary Form everywhere and often to stand on its own in the heart of the Church and to serve as a corrective, to provide a “gravitational pull” on the Novus Ordo.  Also, the Extraordinary Form forms priests in a way that the Novus Ordo simply doesn’t.  That formation will have a profound knock on effect throughout the Church.
