New vs. Old - a priest and a layman discuss differences between the two Masses

These two pieces are both lengthy and substantial and provocative -- in a good way, I think. Food for thought.

  • Fr. Peter Carota, a priest who has for years celebrated the New Mass in English and Spanish, and now, for the last 7 years offered the Ancient Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, offers his observations in "A Priest's View of Latin Mass Vs. New Mass" on his blog (January 29, 2015).

  • Louie Verrecchio, author, columnist in the Archdiocese of Baltimore, MD, Founder and President of Salve Regina Publications, one of Catholic News Agency’s longest running columnists, and author of the internationally acclaimed Harvesting the Fruit of Vatican II Faith Formation Series, comments on Fr. Carota's piece and offers his own detailed observations, in "The inverted Novus Ordo experience" on his blog (February 5, 2015).
