They were celebrating the Mass incorrectly. The Latin Mass may be valid, but by breaking away from their rightful bishops the priests of SSPX celebrated illicit masses.[/quote:1558f85i]
What I meant was, the FORM of the Mass was not the problem. It was that they were rebelling agaisnt authority. Now granted, the problem stemmed from the form of the Mass, but inherently the Latin Mass is fine. In this case they were not supposed to celebrate it that way, though. Not a problem with the Mass-a problem with those who attempted to hold it.
