Catholic Mass for September 1st, 2013 - The 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
By way of explanation of why we should even need to explain and describe the traditional Latin Mass, we need to look at the horrific tale of how it almost disappeared completely from the American Catholic scene, and perhaps even from the world. Go to the Catholic Liturgical Reform page to see a brief history of what happened to our Catholic liturgy, and then return here. The one item of vital importance to note here is this: despite the concerted efforts of multiple liberal bishops and thundering herds of Catholic liturgists, the Traditional Latin Tridentine Mass was never abrogated or repealed by the One Holy Roman Catholic Church.
The Catholic Church
An ex-Catholic Quaker on the beauty (and danger) of the Latin Mass
A major feature of my childhood in the s was the bitter animosity in our parish between those who loved the new English liturgy and those who hated it. My parents loved it. The rancorous liturgical battles made me intensely curious about the old Mass. A friend of my parents had a Maryknoll Missal on their bookshelves—Latin on the left, English translation on the opposing page—and I would pour through it, trying to figure out how it differed from the new Missal and to gain a sense of what sitting in Mass must have been like before the Second Vatican Council. I took four years of Latin in high school, then majored in Latin and Greek in college.

The introduction of the new English translation of the Roman Missal, the book of texts and prayers used in the Mass, appeared to pass smoothly in churches, despite some confusion and hesitancy over the new words. There was no reference to that history Sunday morning in the cavernous nave of St. Robert T. And though he had carefully studied the new service, even Monsignor Ritchie lost his place at one point, raising his eyebrows as he flipped through the missal, looking for the right words before the start of communion.
You are not alone! All over the globe people are discovering the treasure that has been at the heart of the Catholic Liturgy since the first century. Do not feel out of place if you are not familiar with Latin you will see most people reading a translation or if the actions at the altar look different— this same Mass was known by Roman Catholics around the world for centuries! In , the bishops attending the Second Vatican Council approved the idea of revising the Mass that had been said for centuries all around the world. But in , Pope Saint John Paul II encouraged the continuation of the older way, and in , his successor, Pope Benedict XVI, issued a motu proprio a type of papal edict called Summorum Pontificum , giving every priest the authority to say the old Mass, even without permission from his bishop.
