  • 16:10 – Main Topic (Novus Ordo or TLM, Roman Catholic Worship Wars)

In episode TWO HUNDRED, Wade and Mike discuss recent debates about the Roman Mass between advocates for the TLM (Traditional/Tridentine Latin Mass) and the Novus Ordo (the Roman Mass after Vatican II). We begin to delve into some of the recent writings issued and measures taken by Pope Francis in this regard, but will really get into the pertinent documents more in the follow-up episode. So, what’s up with the fight about Roman Masses, TLM or Novus Ordo? Why should Lutherans care about it? What can we learn from it? What’s the history? Should Luther be blamed for it all? What does it say about the relationship between religion and culture? Should the boomers be blamed for it all? We get into this and other topics as we try to make sense of things. We hope you enjoy the episode!
