Frequently Asked Questions

What does “Pro Multis” mean?

Pro Multis is Latin for, “for many.”  It is taken from the consecration of the Precious Blood in the Traditional Latin Mass:

         Hic est enim calix sanguinis mei, novi et æterni testamenti; myserium fidei, qui pro vobis et PRO MULTIS 
         effendetur in remissionem peccatorum.

         (For this is the chalice of My blood, of the new and everlasting testament, the mystery of faith, which 
         for you and FOR MANY shall be shed unto the remission of sins.)

According to the Catechism of the Council of Trent, Our Blessed Lord intentionally said “for many” at the Last Supper and these words were deliberately retained in the Holy Mass: 

We must confess that the Redeemer shed His blood for the salvation of all; but if we look to the fruit which mankind has received from it, we shall easily find that it pertains not unto all, but to many…With reason, therefore, were the words “for all” not used, as in this place the fruits of the Passion alone are spoken of, and to the elect only did His Passion bring the fruit of salvation. 
 

Rome has decreed that the English translation of the consecration of the Precious Blood in the Novus Ordo Mass must be corrected from "for all" to “for many” to properly reflect this theological reality.
 

We chose the name Pro Multis Media to express our fidelity to the teaching of the Church, and to convey our commitment to producing authentically Catholic presentations for “the many” Catholics who share that fidelity.
 

Why will my DVD play in my computer but not in my DVD player? 
 

Firstly, customer satisfaction is of great concern to Pro Multis Media, and we are always glad to promptly replace a defective item.
 

That said, it is an unfortunate fact that there is simply no guarantee that every DVD will play in every DVD player. This is due to inconsistencies between that way DVD players are manufactured and the idiosyncrasies of the DVD “burning” process.  We continue to work with our duplicator to make certain that our products are of the highest possible quality. 
 

Again, while we are happy to replace an item that won’t play properly, if a disc works in your computer, but not your player, it’s probably not a defective disc. 
 

Why don’t your Rosary materials include the new Luminous Mysteries?

The short answer is, because Pro Multis Media is dedicated to providing our customers with Traditional Catholic materials. According to tradition, Our Lady gave the fifteen decade Rosary to St. Dominic in the 12th century; the Luminous Mysteries on the other hand, are less than ten years old.
 

Pope John Paul II was not the first to propose a legitimate variation on the traditional Rosary (i.e., the Servite Rosary, the Franciscan Rosary, etc.). But, simply put, the late Pontiff’s introduction of the Luminous Mysteries in his document Rosarium Virginis Mariae did not officially “change the Rosary” as some assume; the traditional  fifteen decade Rosary remains normative.
 

This is aptly illustrated by the response we received from Fr. Reginald Martin, O.P of the Confraternity of the Holy Rosary.  The  Rosary Confraternity was established by St. Dominic himself, promoted by St. Louis de Montfort, and is still administrated by the Dominicans today.  Those enrolled in the Rosary Confraternity gain special indulgences for praying the Most Holy Rosary.  According to Fr. Martin:
 

         Pope John Paul II wrote an Apostolic Letter on the Rosary, in which he
         said: "I believe... that to bring out fully the Christological depth of
         the Rosary it would be suitable to make an addition to the traditional
         pattern...."


         The Luminous Mysteries are an option, "...left [wrote the Holy Father] to
         the freedom of individuals and communities..." so no one is under
         obligation to include them when praying the Rosary.  Thus, the
         traditional indulgence stands for praying no more than the traditional
         fifteen decades.


Clearly then, the Luminous Mysteries are not mandatory, nor is one being "disloyal to the pope" for praying only the traditional mysteries.
 

This is also true of the Traditional Way of the Cross.  Although the Luminous Mysteries are better known, John Paul II also introduced a “new and improved’ Stations of the Cross, as well.

On Good Friday 1991, our erstwhile Holy Father introduced a revised Way of the Cross without any of the strictly “traditional” (i.e. non-biblical) stations.  In his new Stations of the Cross, the pontiff removed Our Lord’s three falls, the meeting of Our Lord with His Blessed Mother, and His meeting with Veronica; and replaced them with the more “biblical” episodes of: Jesus in the
Garden of Gethsemane
, Judas’ betrayal of Jesus, Jesus condemned by the Sanhedrin, and Peter’s denial, along with other changes.

Yet most Catholics do not pray this revised Way of the Cross. Obviously it’s easier to change the way one prays the Rosary than to change the architecture of a church, which might account somewhat for the difference in popularity, but the point is the same: Catholics are not obliged to abandon their traditional devotions because of the introduction of these recent innovations.
