Why the Mass in Latin?
#75
Melkite Wrote:The East has never made a big deal about when exactly the consecration takes place, and it hasn't been a problem for us, even with these points.  Why does it become a problem in the West?

It's a big deal because it is the main part of the mass/divine liturgy. Plus, Resurrexi listed several practical reasons as to why it's important to know when the consecration physically takes place.

Melkite Wrote:But believing that whether the Spirit proceeds from the Father alone or from both the Father and the Son has never been necessary for salvation, and now Rome has made it necessary, unnecessarily putting souls in danger of hell.

Defining areas of the faith are not meant to put more souls in danger of hell. The Holy Ghost guides and leads the Church and it's teachings. If you leave everything undefined and up to mystery your'e opening the door to possible schisms and/or heresies as has happened with the orthodox.

Melkite Wrote:It would be better for the individual Popes and other Latins who are guilty of such pride to hang a millstone around their neck and throw themselves into the ocean than to face the judgement of God over the damnation they have unnecessarily caused.

Once again, defining areas of the faith is not meant to condemn people, or to increase the number of damned. The Church is supposed to do the opposite. Certain things must be defined in order to avoid heresies. The orthodox don't clearly define very much and as you can see they have opened the door on divorce, birth control etc.

The divine liturgy can still be a mystery. Knowing the correct time when the consecration takes place does not take away from that. It also ends the argument that the orthodox seem to have that it takes place during the epiklesis.

Certain things have to be defined by the Church, it's that simple.
