MARCH 2015

Why I decided to migrate to the Tridentine Latin Rite Mass from the Novus Ordo Mass: Abuses in the Liturgy of the Holy Mass in my archdiocese of Madras-Mylapore
Why? The detailed story follows, but first briefly,

1. Because I am subjected to multiple liturgical violations (all of which are condemned by Rome) at every Novus Ordo (New Rite; Ordinary Form) Holy Mass in every parish that I’ve been to in my archdiocese over the past few years, not only on Days of Obligation, but even on weekdays… and at weddings and funerals;

2. Because my attempts to communicate on these issues either orally or in writing with all but one of the priests concerned have been met with hostility or with ignore-ance (yes, pun intended); and

3. Because Rome has never abrogated the Extraordinary Form (EF) or Tridentine Latin Rite Mass but allows it and in fact encourages laity to attend it… and so does my Archbishop, the Most Rev. George Antonysamy.

God bless him, because it appears that 99% of the Indian bishops do everything they can to extinguish it.
The locations where the Tridentine Mass with the approval of the local Ordinary are available:

1. CHENNAI: The Tridentine Mass is celebrated Sundays at 5:30 p.m. at St. Anthony’s Chapel, 33 Cathedral Road in Gopalapuram, near the US Consulate and the Anna Flyover by priests of the Society of St. Pius X.

Car parking is arranged at the Stella Maris College which is diagonally across the road from the Chapel.
2. MUMBAI: In a notification dated March 17, 2006, Cardinal Ivan Dias, Archbishop of Bombay, authorised its celebration on the first Sunday of every month at the Church of Our Lady of Victories, Mahim, Mumbai:

March 28, 2006

"To accommodate those who wanted the traditional mass, the Church permitted the Tridentine mass once a month at the Church of Our Lady of Victories, Mahim provided they gave an undertaking that they believe in Vatican II and the new order of the mass."
The Lefebvre Movement in the Archdiocese EXTRACT

I deem it opportune to inform the faithful in the Archdiocese that the members of the Lefebvre movement and their Masses - though valid, as are those of some other non-Catholic Christian communities - are not in full communion with the Holy See. May I also recall that, since 2001, for the benefit of those who desire to attend the Tridentine Latin Mass of St. Pius V - so much hyped by the Lefebvrists in opposition to the post-Vatican II Mass introduced by Pope Paul VI - I have authorised its celebration on the first Sunday of every month at the Church of Our Lady of Victories, Mahim.

TLM update from India EXTRACT

February 25, 2009

In the Archdiocese of Bombay the Indult Mass has been celebrated at Our Lady of Victory Church, Mahim, Bombay, on the first Sunday of the month since January 2001. Initially done by a very senior priest who was ordained in 1956, he had forgotten how to celebrate it and made quite a mess of it. For around a year the Mass was celebrated by pre-1969 priests but thereafter it has been celebrated mostly by a post-1969 priest… 

From January 2008 the Motu Proprio Mass, requested by a group of laypersons, is being offered in the Jesuit-run St. Peter's Church, Bandra, in the church loft by a pre-1969 priest, first by an 82 year-old priest in the Clergy Home and thereafter by a Spanish Jesuit, also ordained before 1969. Attendance at the start was around 70.The Mass is only on the third Sunday of every month.  

For those who may be unaware, Latin is still the official sacred language of the Catholic Church.

The Latin Mass at the Mahim church is celebrated by Fr. Paul D’Souza of the Holy Cross Church, Kurla, at 11:00 am on the first Sunday of the month.

I am informed that it is also offered “in the church loft” at 11:30 am at St. Peter’s Church in Bandra on the first Sunday of the month.

There is also the Tridentine Mass available at St. Anthony’s Church, Malwani, Malad every second Sunday of the month at 6:30 pm. One of the priests coming to Malad, Fr. Philip Lobo, is reportedly 90 years old, while the Spanish Jesuit Fr. Juan at Bandra is around 85 years old. Fr. Paul is the youngest, at around 65.
3. TUTICORIN, Tamil Nadu:

The Tridentine Mass approved by the local bishop is offered on all Sundays at 7:00 am, excepting the last Sunday of the month when the Mass is at 5:30 pm, reports the contact person Francis Kumar, 94864 71966.
But these are the rare exceptions. Laity preferring the Latin Mass attend those celebrated by priests of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) at their Mass centres (often the residences of Catholic laity) in Bangalore, Goa, Orlem (in Mumbai), Vasai (near Mumbai), Coonoor in the Nilagiri hills, Palayamkottai at their Priory, and several other cities and towns in the deep south of Tamil Nadu state.

Some SSPX retreats and recollections are held at Catholic diocesan or religious-run institutions such as the St. Anthony’s Chapel in Chennai, the St. Francis Xavier’s Chapel in Virar West, Vasai, the Xavier Centre of Historical Research in Alto Porvorim and the SVD Mission Seminary (St. Francis Xavier's Ashram) in Raia in Goa, the SVD priests’ Atma Darshan in Andheri, Mumbai, the Ignatian Retreat Centre (Mount St. Joseph) in Bangalore, and the Salesian sisters’ Morense Convent in Yercaud, Tamil Nadu.
Tridentine Mass in Bombay (at Orlem) EXTRACT

November 27, 2011

Today I heard the Sunday Mass in a chapel in the northern part of Bombay. The chapel was organized on the first floor of a private building ‘Gratias Mariae’. It was an extraordinary experience not only because of the Mass, but also to see how the regional traditions and sensitivities can have also place in the Tridentine Mass without liturgical abuses. Ladies wearing traditional saris were singing Gregorian mass for Advent. Altar servants were wearing black cassocks and surplices, but were barefooted – since this is a custom in India that you enter a holy place without shoes. And which place is more holy than the Catholic Church. Address: 1st floor, Gratias Mariae Building, Tank Road, Orlem, Malad West, Mumbai
