    1 thought on “Heresy of Formlessness

    1. When I discovered the beauty and reverence of the Latin Mass some years ago, a parishioner recommended to me THE HERESY OF FORMLESSNESS, by Martin Mosebach. It is a wonderful exposition on what the Church has lost in adopting the Novus Ordo over what is now called the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. Mosebach is not a theologian, but a German writer and an artist, and writes frequently on art and literature, so he approaches the subject with those unique sensibilities. His opening: In am no [...]

    2. Really, really remarkable book. I don't know that I can do it justice with a review. Mosebach is a genius who offers a view on the liturgical upheaval of the last 40 years that it indispensable. I came away with an incredible appreciation of the Extraordinary Form and its riches.

    3. This is not so much a work of theology but a love letter to the Tridentine Rite. The author develops his appreciation of the mass from a little incident that he happenned to observe of some ladies washing purificators. He traces the emotional development of the Church's liturgy as a history of growing more conscious of the Real Presence. There is a tremendous amount of luturgical history in this book but this book does not advocate the Old Rite because it is old, but because of it appropriatenes [...]

    4. Great to see a book on the subject that is not written by a liturgist or a theologian. The author here is merely a lay-man in the pews, charting the apparent destruction of the Roman liturgy from the time of the 1960s. Even in the English, there is great style of language.

    5. More of a rant than an argument against the Mass of Paul VI, though a literary and beautiful one. Brilliant in parts, the book is uneven and lacks coherence. Well worth reading, however.

    6. A luminous book - truly luminous: I was illuminated as I read it. The essays in this collection were written over a period of time, and they touch on different topics. All are about the Mass, the true Mass, the Mass of the ages. The ideas are unconventional; the writing is extraordinary. I came away with a much greater understanding of the old Mass, and why it feeds my faith so much more than the Novus Ordo. Like Hans urs von Balthasar and a few others, Mosebach insists the experience of beauty [...]

    7. Leider verwechselt der Autor schon die "römische Liturgie" mit der außerordentlichen Form der römischen Liturgie. Seine Beobachtungen und Einsichten, die zu einem großen Teil Zustimmung verdienen leiden aber darunter, daß der feuilletonistische Stil den Autor oft eine unproduktive Frontstellung zwischen der ordentlichen und außerordentlichen Form der einen römischen Liturgie sieht. Die eigentliche Frontlinie ist aber doch wohl eher die zwischen einer ehrfürchtigen Feier einer Liturgie, d [...]

    8. Thoughtful and passionate reflections on the changes to the Catholic liturgy after Vatican II, from a writer (not a theologian). Focus on how the experience of the liturgy has changed for priests and for congregations, and the meaning carried in that experience. Written from the heart, though clearly with a great depth of knowledge. Though there is an overall flow to the book, it is a collection of essays and articles written at different times, so now and then there is some repetition or differ [...]

    9. Not a systematic defense of the "Mass of St. Gregory the Great" (the Latin Mass a la the "Divine Liturgy of St. John Crystosom), nor a detailed attack on the Novus Ordo, but more a few heart-felt appeals to what we have lost. Excellent flow and easy to read if you walk into it expecting more a conversation then a dissertation.

    10. This book offers a brief criticism about liturgical changes after the Second Vatican Council. Though the author is neither a theologian nor a liturgist, his analysis is sharp and compelling. It's both an easy read book and a good introduction for Catholics who want to know a bit about liturgical crisis after the liturgical reform.

    11. An important book that deserves to be widely read - certainly by all Catholics of good will and sense of beauty. Unveiling the beauty of the Mass, how traditions incarnate Tradition in a profoundly human way.

    12. This book really gives a unique perspective of the liturgical problems currently being faced by the Catholic Church. It is intelligent but not difficult to read. Very insightful.

    13. This is the best (as well as the most clear & pleasant) little book one could ask for to understand why the liturgical form of the Mass is so critical to the life of Holy Mother Church.
