The Old Covenant, albeit an excellent foreshadowing of the New Covenant, is now, totally annulled. 

Editor’s note: This is a good and essentially correct article, but I suspect the author probably meant to refer to the Old Covenant, rather than the Old Testament, since the Old Testament remains, as the Holy Spirit inspired, written Word of God, while the non-salvific Old Covenant has indeed, been totally annulled, in favor of the grace empowered New, Eternal and Saving Covenant, in Jesus Christ and his Holy Catholic Church.

…The Holy Spirit wrote through the Apostle Paul to the early Christian converts from Judaism (who were tempted to return to Judaism) the following: There is indeed a setting aside of the former commandment, because of the weakness and unprofitableness thereof. For the law brought nothing to perfection, but a bringing in of a better hope, by which we draw nigh to God.—Heb 7:18.

This means the Old Testament, albeit an excellent foreshadowing of the New Testament, is totally annulled.

The first Greek word in Heb 7:18 is Ἀθέτησις (Athetisis) which Strong’s dictionary defines as nullification, abrogation and cancellation. Notice the New Testament inerrantly describes the Old Testament as abrogated or cancelled. Why then are so many neo-con non-trad Catholics obsessed with the old-rituals found in Judaism? Probably because they trashed their own ancient rites in favor of rites written by Protestants and freemasons. But we traditional Catholics (who do indeed have very ancient rites) are rarely tempted to go to things like a Seder meal (which is prohibited, by the way.)

The Council of Florence infallibly states “that the matter pertaining to the law of the Old Testament of the Mosaic law…although they were suited to the divine worship at that time after our Lord’s coming had been signified by them, ceased, and the sacraments of the New Testament began.” Later, the Council of Trent speaks “of the abrogation of the Mosaic Law.” Much later, Pope Pius XII (who saved over 860,000 Jews from the holocaust) wrote “The New Testament took the place of the Old Law which had been abolished…but on the gibbet of His death Jesus made void the Law with its decrees fastened the handwriting of the Old Testament to the Cross.”—Mystici Corporis, #29.
