From Toronto Catholic Blog comes this.
Now… don’t freak out. Just remember that this is a brick by brick process.
Some people will rush to all sorts of exaggerations.
Take the report for what it is worth.
I hope, frankly, it is all false.
First Traditional Latin Mass in 40 years results in liturgical abuse!
For the first time in forty years, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass celebrated in the beautiful chapel at St. Augustine’s Seminary in Toronto would be something other than the Missa Normative of 1970. Bishop Attila Miklósházy, S.J. was the main celebrant.
In an unheard of experimentation with the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, the Mass was “concelebrated” by Bishop Miklósházy and at least eight (8) other priests — a practice only permitted in the Ordinary Form and unheard of in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. The closest this Mass comes to concelebration is the ordination of a priest when the newly ordained is invited to assist in the Canon with the presiding Bishop. But this was not a concelebration as we understand it in the Ordinary Form—it was in fact the Bishop teaching the new priest to say the Mass.
Reports that the Mass would be celebrated have been known for a few weeks. In fact, it was made known ahead of time that the Mass would be celebrated versus populum. Perhaps, this could have been considered a valid alteration considering it is the Seminary and it would be helpful for the seminarians to view the rubrics. Yet, further investigation has revealed other serious liturgical abuses never anticipated by the motu proprio, Summorum Pontficum and as yet, unheard of in the blogosphere.
It seems that in addition to illicit concelebrating and facing the people the readings were in English. While this was anticipated in the motu proprio from an “approved translation” it is doubtful that Pope Benedict was referring to the New Revised Standard Version. [I don’t know what all that meant in Summorum Pontificum. But the sensibilities of the congregation (in this case seminarians) ought to be respected.] One would assume that this would have at least been the translation in use in 1962, that of the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine.
It is also confirmed that Communion was received in the hand [This is not "wrong", in the sense that it is licit to do this. But no one should be required.] and that a cone of silence has been ordered by the seminary rector, Monsignor A. Robert Nusca. [Oh?]
There can be many things garbled or slightly distorted in reporting.
I suppose more will come forth.
