How could the Catholic Mass of the Ages be so bad that it had to be shunned, silenced and lied about?

I hope you feel the same as me: I'll prefer the Mass as celebrated above (photo from http://www.sanctamissa.org/), and in such a church, any day over the Masses and wreckovated churches the liberals have foisted upon us the last 40 years.

Yes, the "New Mass" is valid; and yes, we are stuck with some wreckovated churches for now. But we do not have to like the liturgical-abuse-filled "Masses as liberal priests' playthings" of recent decades; and we can pray and plan to restore every gutted, wreckovated church to its Catholic fullness.
These thoughts are a preamble to a question that keeps bothering me, and most likely you, too: How could the Mass that the Church celebrated universally and for a millennium and more be found bad and deserving to be stamped out, suppressed, silenced, mocked, reviled and lied about in the late 20th century?
The answer is that it could not be -- yet it was. We have to turn things around, and we are. Pope Benedict XVI tells us to make room for the Tridentine Latin Mass once again, so we are going to, Deo gratias...and Katy, bar the door.
Have you seen the EWTN page (click on this post's title) of "Motu Proprio Resources" links? It's a good place to start!
And let's not let any liberals tell us we've got "a pre-conciliar mindset," either.

Deo Gratias, there are full restorations coming to St. Thérèse, and a few other places. Slowly but surely.

Dear Anonymous 6:39 p.m.,

Thank you for the tip about the banning of the Latin Mass by the OMVs and by the Italian Jesuits.

As Father Zuhlsdorf says, "This is a serious matter that only the Holy See can clarify."

Dear Katolico,

Thank you for your comment about the sanctuary in St. Brendan Church in Hancock Park and for this link to photos of the church's interior:


Please don't take offense, but I've decided not to publish your comment, because of one word in it that people could misinterpret.

But please keep comng back here!

Dear Katolico,

I might as well mention that the word was "infidelity." I know you wouldn't want people to take that as meaning something other than infidelity to doctrine.
