Cekada's Work of Human Hands is the first book to seriously study not only the now well-known Bugnini-led process that led to the Novus Ordo Mass. This book also documents very well and in a systematic way how and why each part of the Novus Ordo Mass differs from the Traditional Mass. The bowdlerization of the Collects is well-treated, with many examples. The discussion of the Canon and the sacrificial foundation of the Mass is one of the highlights of the book.

Work of Human Hands is by no means so succinct a publication

Work of Human Hands is by no means so succinct a publication. It is a substantial attempt to demonstrate profound theological rupture between the two, and more. It deserves serious attention. The principal thesis is that the Mass of Paul VI destroys Catholic doctrine in the minds of the faithful and in particular, Catholic doctrine concerning the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the priesthood and the real presence, and that it permits or prescribes grave irreverence. His secondary thesis is that the Mass of Paul VI is invalid. His practical conclusion is that a Catholic may not merely prefer the old rite to the new; he must also reject the new rite in its entirety.

Work of Human Hands is a copiously referenced work and represents a major contribution to the liturgical debate currently . Cekada does argue that the "Mass of Paul VI" is invalid, which does, at least, imply sedevantism.

Work of Human Hands is a copiously referenced work and represents a major contribution to the liturgical debate currently taking place in the Church. He argues on page 347-348 that at the consecration, "the erstwhile sacramental forms found in the traditional Mass were transformed into institution narratives," resulting in, what Fr. Cekada calls an "invalidating defect.

For the more visually inclined, I produced a series of short, YouTube videos, Chapter Overviews of Work of Human Hands, that sum up some of the principal points in the book. These thirteen videos, as of this publication date, have had an aggregate number of 258,000 views.

We must attend to his arguments on their merits. The principal thesis is that the Mass of Paul VI destroys Catholic doctrine in the minds of the faithful, and in particular, Catholic doctrine concerning the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the priesthood and the Real Presence, and that it permits or prescribes grave irreverence (7).

Interest in the traditional Latin Mass has begun to spread among a younger generation of clergy and laity, especially since the appearance of Benedict XVI's Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum. Many now speak enthusiastically of encountering in the old rite a beauty, a reverence, and a sense of continuity with tradition that they have not experienced with the Mass of Paul VI, the liturgical norm since it first appeared in 1969. Inevitably, however, questions deeper than aesthetics, nostalgia and the hunger for mystery in religion arise. To address them, Father Cekada has produced this thorough and methodical study of the Mass of Paul VI. Father Cekada's erudition, clarity of expression, and facile wit will draw and delight readers, even some who might be quite opposed to his doctrinal positions and to his startling conclusions in this scholarly work.

I will not provide an overview and deep analysis of the book because there are a number of them on Amazon that have done a fine job; so I recommend reading those. However, the book is simple to read without needing any serious knowledge of theology or Church history. It extremely well footnoted for a deeper examination.

This is a must read for anyone who attends the Novus Ordo Mass today because Rev. Fr. Cekada lays out the history of the “man-made created” mass and then compares it essentially side by side the true Mass.

As someone who was born in 1962 with no experience or memory of the Roman Catholic Mass being celebrated, this book was an eye opener and deeply disturbing. After years of seeing the folk masses, the children’s masses, the mass around the altar, etc., I finally learned why I was leaving the Novus Ordo Mass week after week, year after year in a state of anger and agitation.

Some may know Rev. Fr. Cekada and his positions, and sometimes his sharp words, and may not want to read the book because of this. I caution you not to do this because he has not carried into any of his explanations or arguments the Sedevacantist position. It is purely fact.
If one is a Roman Catholic priest I would highly recommended reading this book because as I have found in my discussions with various priests since, they have not been taught this very foundational information Rev. Fr. Cekada provides.

Lastly, one conclusion I drew from reading the book is that an Ad Orientum, Gregorian Chant, or Latin usage “fix,” or the Rev. Fr. John Zuhlsdorf approach, or a Pope Benedict XVI “blending,” will never work because the Novus Ordo is defective (period) and was created by a small number of men who wanted to radically change the Church. The only solution is to restore the Roman Catholic Mass.

As an aside, I am not a Sedevacantist and but I hold that the Novus Ordo is illicit yet it is still valid: that belief is derived from a couple considerations; one, the interpretation of Canon Gregory Hesse (you can find his lectures on YouTube or from Catholic Family News), and from a rudimentary belief that the Holy Trinity would ever leave millions of faithful Catholics to die because of a small number of sinister men. But as we know ignorance will only provide a limited amount of defense. Take the time and learn what took place in the Church through Rev. Fr. Cekada’s examination and save your soul. After which I highly recommend reading Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre’s book, “Open Letter to Confused Catholics.” I make this recommendation also as one who is not part of the SSPX (Society of St Pius X).

My review for this excellent book remains as I wrote it in January 2013. However, on November 17, 2013, I noticed very high prices at Amazon, currently $183.47 and up. The book can be bought through St. Gertrude the Great resources online for $24.95.

Work Of Human Hands is the definitive explanation not only of what went wrong with the Catholic Mass, but what went wrong with the Catholic Church. The real beauty of this book is that in explaining what went wrong, one gains deeper appreciation of what was right with the Traditional Mass and what remains right in the Remnant of the Catholic Church that takes the Faith seriously. Work of Human Hands: A Theological Critique of the Mass of Paul VI leaves no stone unturned as it describes in detail the very human manipulations that occurred in the creation of a substitute Faith within the Faith.

The Novus Ordo represents a rupture in both form and substance with the Theology of the Catholic Church. Because Paul VI himself stated that Vatican II was not infallible, the Church has an opportunity to show the world what the Humility of forcefully and clearly acknowledging one's mistakes looks like. The same can be said of the Cover-Up of the Sex Scandals which interestingly enough were at their peak during the general deterioration of the Church's Theology and Liturgy. Clear and unmitigated apology and even a self-imposed spiritual repentance and explanation that these disasters will never be tolerated again would show the world what Real Confession looks like.

Outstanding. Highly readable, fascinating, humor, scary realities, Father Cekada pulls it all together. A book that could not have been written until now.Extenive interesting research. Very convincing. This is going to be a quotable book and I bet is being read by every Vaticanist who can get their hands on it. Probably every Seminarian as well, Willing to bet it will be widely discussed and debated. In some modernist seminaries will be cause for dismisal if found on your bookshelf. Great Job Father, I am not a sede but you hit the nail on the head, over and over and over and ............

Fr.Cekada's book is a must read for those Catholics who have known for some time that there is an Elephant in the Room: the real discontinuity between the Traditional Roman Mass and the Novus Ordo Mass of Paul VI. Until a decade ago the question of the problems in the Novus Ordo Mass was not discussed in polite circles. Fr. Aidan Nicholas really began the opening up of the problematic nature of the Novus Ordo. There have been a series of books and articles ever since that center on elements in the Novus Ordo Mass that break with liturgical Tradition. Fr. Cekada's Work of Human Hands is the first book to seriously study not only the now well-known Bugnini-led process that led to the Novus Ordo Mass. This book also documents very well and in a systematic way how and why each part of the Novus Ordo Mass differs from the Traditional Mass. The bowdlerization of the Collects is well-treated, with many examples. The discussion of the Canon and the sacrificial foundation of the Mass is one of the highlights of the book. I have two caveats. First, Fr Cekada peppers his discussions of the topics at hand with snide remarks that take away from the seriousness and the objectivity of the book. Second, Fr Cekada's conclusion that the Novus Ordo consecration is invalid cannot be accepted by any Catholic, for it denies the indefectability of the Church, which is a defined doctrine. I think this is a must read for all thinking Catholics, even with the two caveats I mentioned.

I was a student of liturgy at the "Catho" in Paris from 1973 to 1975. My professors are frequently mentioned by the author. There is much in his analysis that squares with my experience. The Jungmann-Bouyer-Bugnini troika sands behind much of the Mass of Paul VI. His thesis is systematically argued. For me, it was a satisfying visit to a liturgical "whodoneit."
