366 Project - Day 195 - "The Latin Mass"
July 13, 2016 - "The Latin Mass"
My parish announced some wonderful news this past weekend: The Bishop has given our parish permission to start celebrating the Tridentine Mass (Traditional Latin Mass). It will take some preparation before it can begin... but starting in September we will be celebrating a Tridentine Mass on the first Sunday of every month! This is something I've been hoping and praying for, so I am very excited about this! Perhaps some day in the future there'll come a time when we're able to host a Tridentine Mass every Sunday... but for now "once a month" is wonderful news!
Parishioners who plan to participate in the Latin Mass have been encouraged to purchase a copy of the 1962 Sunday Missal, which features the Latin on the left page and the English translation on the right page. This is the "Old Form" of the Mass, which was replaced by the current "Novus Ordo" Mass as part of the changes stemming from Vatican II.
So today's photo is of my beautiful 1962 Saint Joseph Sunday Missal - which I cannot wait to begin using!
Gloria in excélsis Deo!
