THE HOLY SACRIFICE OF THE MASS

1

2

Note: In this Missal, parts printed in bold black are to be recited aloud, those in fine black are to be recited softly and parts in red are instructions.

Obligatory parts of the Mass
The Mass consists of three important and necessary parts, the Offertory, Consecration and Communion. A Catholic is obliged to attend Holy Mass each Sunday and Holyday of Obligation. To fulfill this obligation he must be present during the parts of the Mass named above.

Instructions to the server
1. Place Missal closed on the Missal stand on the right of the Altar. 2. Light two beeswax candles (six for High Mass). 3. Cover Altar with three white linen cloths. Place Altar cards one each at the left, right, and center of the Altar. (The left one is the Last Gospel). 4. Keep ready the bell. Keep ready two cruets, water and wine, the spoon, the Towel, which the priest uses to wipe his fingers after they were cleansed with water and the little receptacle for receiving the drops of water during the ablution. 5. Also, the gold Paten-like or dish-like tray, which is used during the Communion time. 6. In the Sacristy, keep ready the Ordo, and also the Chalice, the Purificator, the Paten, the Host and the Pall, all of these covered by the Veil. On top of the Veil, keep the Burse containing the Corporal. 7. Keep ready the Amice, the Alb, the cincture, the Maniple, the Stole, the Chasuble and the Biretta. 8. Keep ready the holy water if the Asperges is to be recited. 9. When the Priest enters, the Server comes behind him. In his left hand the Priest carries the Chalice covered with the veil. His right hand rests upon the Burse containing the Corporal.

The Altar
In the Catholic Church, the first object which attracts the eye of the individual is the altar. We are directed by our liturgy today to construct our altars of stone. Imbedded in the stone altar top or mensa should be a little reliquary in which the partial remains of a Christian martyr are preserved. Crosses are placed in the center and on the four corners of the mensa to recall the five wounds of Christ’s body. Since the altar is the place of sacrifice, where, after the consecration of the Holy Mass the particle consecrated becomes the body and blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ, the altar must be dedicated at a special ceremony by the Bishop of the Diocese. The altar prepared for Holy Mass is covered with three white linen cloths which are provided to absorb the consecrated species of the wine or the precious blood should it be accidentally spilled.

To the right on the altar table is the Mass book called “The Missal.” This book contains not only the common prayers said daily but the seasonal and feast day prayers for the entire year. The three altar cards contain some of the common prayers recited by the priest daily at the Holy Mass. The candles for a Low Mass are two in number. For a High Mass six candles are lighted. These candles are made of beeswax. The vault-like portion in the center of the altar is called the tabernacle or the depository for the Blessed Sacrament. It is richly ornamented. The inside usually is beautifully draped to afford a suitable throne for the King of kings. Above the tabernacle is found a crucifix which recalls to our minds the Sacrifice of Calvary.

The Priest in the Sacristy

When the priest enters the sacristy the order of the day is studied by him in a little booklet called “The Ordo.” You will observe the vestments on the vestment case with the 4

veiled Chalice. The articles covered by the veil are the Chalice, the Purificator, the Paten, the Host and the Pall. The Chalice and Paten are made of gold because only the most rare and costly utensils should be used at the Holy Sacrifice. They must be consecrated by the Bishop and ordinarily can only be touched by the priest. The Mass is a repetition of the Last Supper, and the Chalice and the Paten are representative of the cup and the dish used by our Lord at the Last Supper. The Paten is the repository for the Host at Offertory and the Chalice contains the wine. The Purificator is an oblong piece of white linen used to purify the Chalice. You will observe in your study of the Offertory that the celebrant performs this action of purification. Before vesting, the priest purifies his fingers saying, “Give virtue, O Lord unto my hands that every stain may be wiped away, that I may be enabled to serve Thee without defilement of mind or body.”

The Priest Puts On the Amice

Then the priest puts on the Amice. The Amice is a small rectangular linen cloth with two strings attached to fasten it. The word has it derivation from the Latin and means, “to wrap around.” It is used as a protection for the vestments and before being placed on his shoulders the celebrant touches his head and forms a helmet as a protection against Satan. As he puts on the Amice, he says, “Place, O Lord, the helmet of salvation upon my head that I may overcome the assaults of the devil.”

The Priest Puts On the Alb

5

The Alb is a long white linen garment with full-length sleeves. In some instances the Alb is adorned with lace. The word itself means, “white” (garment). The priest quietly recites this prayer: “Cleanse me, O Lord, and purify my heart that being made white in the blood of the Lamb I may have the fruition of everlasting joy.”

The Priest Puts On the Cincture

Since the Alb is a loose garment the priest places the Cincture about his waist to secure it. This word also has a Latin derivation meaning, “to gird.” The significance of this sacramental is mortification of the flesh and its vices. It is the symbol of sacerdotal chastity. The priest says, “Gird me, O Lord, with the girdle of purity and extinguish in my loins the desires of lust so that the virtue of continence and chastity may ever abide within me.”

The Priest Puts On the Maniple

The Maniple is the vestment placed on the left arm of the celebrant. It is about a yard long and from four to six inches wide. Originally it was a handkerchief carried in the left hand for use during the service. The priest accepts the Maniple, kisses it, places it on the left arm saying,

6

“May I be worthy, O Lord, so to bear the Maniple of tears and sorrow: that with joy I may receive the reward of my labor.”

The Priest Puts On the Stole

The Stole is the sign of the office of the priest. It is a long slender band usually richly decorated with embroidery or gold. It is placed over the shoulders of the celebrant, crosses upon his breast and secured on either side by the Cincture. The priest first kisses the cross in the center of the Stole and places it on his shoulders saying, “Restore to me, O Lord, the Stole of immortality which I lost by the transgression of the first parent: and although unworthy, as I draw near to Thy sacred mystery, may I be found worthy of everlasting joy.” NOTE: In case of High Mass or the principal Mass on Sunday, go the the section on “Asperges Me” or the “Vidi Aquam”, else go to “The Priest puts on the Chasuble”

Asperges Me/Vidi Aquam
The priest, wearing a cope, blesses the Altar, himself, the servers, and the people with Holy Water. We beg God's mercy (or, during Paschaltide, we praise His mercy) and asks Him to send our church's Guardian Angel to protect us. As the priest enters and walks down the aisle toward the Altar, stand. Make a profound bow and cross yourself as the priest passes by and blesses the people of your pew with holy water. ASPÉRGES ME (During the year outside of Paschaltide/Eastertime): Aspérges me. Dómine, hyssópo, et Thou shalt sprinkle me, O Lord, with mundábor: lavábis me, et super nivem hyssop, and I shall be cleansed; Thou dealbábor. shalt wash me, and I shall become whiter than snow. Miserére mei, Deus, secúndum magnam Have mercy on me, O God, according to 7

misericórdiam tuam. Thy great mercy. [Psalm 50] P.Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui P.Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, Sancto. and to the Holy Ghost. Here, at the mention of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost together, the priest will pause in his blessing of the people. S.Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculórum. Amen. Aspérges me. Dómine, hyssópo, et mundábor: lavábis me, et super nivem dealbábor. S.As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Thou shalt sprinkle me, O Lord, with hyssop, and I shall be cleansed; Thou shalt wash me, and I shall become whiter than snow.

VIDI AQUAM (Replaces the Aspérges during Paschaltide/Eastertime): Vidi aquam egrediéntem de templo, a I saw water flowing from the right side látere dextro, allelúia: et omnes ad quos of the temple, alleluia; and all they to pervénit aqua ista salvi facti sunt et whom that water came were saved, and dicent: allelúia, allelúia. they shall say, alleluia, alleluia. Confitémini Dómino, quóniam bonus: Praise the Lord, for He is good; for His quóniam in sæculum misericórdia ejus. mercy endureth forever. [Psalm 117]. P.Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui P.Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, Sancto. and to the Holy Ghost. S.Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et S.As it was in the beginning, is now, and semper, et in sæcula sæculórum. Amen. ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Vidi aquam egrediéntem de templo, a I saw water flowing from the right side látere dextro, allelúia: et omnes ad quos of the temple, alleluia; and all they to pervénit aqua ista salvi facti sunt et whom that water came were saved, and dicent: allelúia, allelúia. they shall say, alleluia, alleluia. After either the Aspérges or the Vidi Aquam, the priest returns to the foot of the Altar Osténde nobis, Dómine, misericórdiam tuam. S.Et salutáre tuum da nobis. P.Dómine, exáudi oratiónem meam. S.Et clamor meus ad te véniat. P.Dóminus vobíscum. S.Et cum spíritu tuo. P.Orémus. Exáudi nos, Dómine sancte, Pater omnípotens, ætérne Deus, et míttere dignéris sanctum Angelum tuum de cælis, qui custódiat, fóveat, prótegat, vísitet, atque deféndat omnes habitántes 8 Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy. S.And grant us Thy salvation. P.O Lord, hear my prayer. S.And let my cry come unto Thee. P.The Lord be with you. S.And with thy spirit. P.Let us pray. Hear us, O holy Lord, almighty Father, everlasting God, and vouchsafe to send Thy holy Angel from heaven, to guard, cherish, protect, visit and defend all that are assembled in this place: Through

Sit while the priest vests for Mass, replacing his cope with a chasuble

The Priest Puts On the Chasuble

The Chasuble varies in color according to the feast as do the Maniple and the Stole. The violet vestment indicates a sign of penance, the white of joy, red of love, green of hope, and black of sorrow. As the priest places this garment over his head he says, “O Lord, Who hast said: ‘My yoke is easy and My burden is light’ make me able to bear it, that I may obtain Thy favor. Amen.”

The Celebrant Enters the Sanctuary

The priest is now fully vested and proceeds to the foot of the altar. You will observe the headdress worn by the priest. It is called the Birettum. He is robed in his sacred vestments and is accompanied by the acolytes. In his left hand he carries the 9

Chalice covered with the veil. His right hand rests upon the Burse containing the Corporal. He proceeds to the center of the altar, genuflects and proceeds to ascend the steps.

The Priest Ascends to the Altar

The Priest Places the Chalice

Upon reaching the top platform and approaching the altar (Mensa) the priest places the Chalice to the left of the center. He removes the Burse from the top of the veilcovered Chalice containing the Corporal, opens it and places it immediately over the reliquary and in front of the tabernacle. He then places the Chalice on this Corporal, bows reverently and…

The Celebrant Prepares the Missal
10

…proceeds to the right hand side or the Epistle side of the altar to open and prepare the Missal. You observe that the book is opened and the various markers are placed for the Mass of the day. He then returns to the center of the altar, bows reverently to the Crucifix and descends to the foot of the altar.

Prayers at the Foot of the Altar

Note: throughout the Mass, bow your head when the Name “Jesus” is uttered.

The Mass of the Catechumens (kneel)
The priest genuflects at the foot of the altar and joins his hands, the faithful kneel down. P: In nomine Patris, et P: In the Name of the P: Bapache nanvim ani Filii, et Spiritus Sancti.

At a high Mass the priest will bless the Altar after blessing the incense with these words: [Ab ilio benedicáris, in cujus honóre [Be blessed by Him in whose honour thou cremáberis. Amen.] art burnt. Amen.]

The Introit (kneel) (Proper)
The priest proceeds to the Missal. The priest makes the Sign of The Cross and reads the day's Introit, from the right, or 'Epistle', side of the altar. Upon the completion of the Introit the priest returns to the center of the altar where he recites the Kyrie Eleison

The Gloria in Excelsis (kneel)
(Stand if it's a High Mass, i.e., a Sung Mass, or "Missa Cantata"). (omitted during Lent, Advent and Mass for the dead)

The priest stands at the middle of the altar, raises his arms and hands reverently towards Heaven and says: P: Gloria in excelsis Deo, P: Glory to God on high, P: Onod sorgar Devak ani et in terra pax hominibus and on earth peace to men hea sonvsarant bore bonae voluntatis. of good will.

S: Amen. S: Amen. S: Oxem Zaum. 17

The Epistle (sit) (Proper)

Holding the Missal, the priest reads the Epistle. When the priest finishes the Epistle, the server says: S: Deo gratias. S: Thanks be to God. S: Devak argam.

Graduale (Proper)
The Server Transfers the Missal to the left (Gospel side) of the Altar and…

… the priest, bowing at the center of the altar, says silently the following prayer:

The Munda cor Meum
P: Munda cor meum ac labia mea, omnipotens Deus, qui labia Isaiae Prophetae calculo mundasti ignito: ita me tua grata miseratione dignare mundare, ut sanctum Evangelium tuum digne valeam nuntiare. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen. P: Jube, Domine P: Cleanse my heart and my lips, O Almighty God, Who cleansed the lips of the Prophet Isaiah with a burning coal. In Thy gracious mercy deign so to purify me that I may worthily proclaim Thy holy Gospel. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The priest uncovers the chalice and continues:

The priest kneels/genuflects to adore the Precious Blood of Our Lord. He then stands and elevates the chalice for the faithful to venerate and adore. The priest sets the chalice down and kneels/genuflects, again, to adore Him.

In like manner, after He had supped, taking also this excellent chalice into His holy and venerable hands, and giving thanks to Thee, He bles sed it, and gave it to His disciples, saying: Take and drink ye all of this, FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD OF THE NEW AND EVERLASTING TESTAMENT: THE MYSTERY OF FAITH: WHICH FOR YOU AND FOR MANY WILL BE SHED UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.

Prayers after the Consecration

The priest keeps his fingers and thumbs together as indicated in the picture until the washing of the hands after Communion. 30

(He extends his hands and continues:) Deign to regard with gracious and serene countenance, and to accept them, as Thou was graciously pleased to accept the gifts of Thy just servant, Able, and the sacrifice of Abraham our Patriarch, and that which Thy chief priest Melchisedech offered to Thee, a holy Sacrifice, an unspotted Victim.

The Libera Nos
33

P: Libera nos, quaesumus, Domine, ab omnibus malis, praeteritis, praesentibus, et futuris: et intercedente beata et gloriosa semper Virgine Dei Genitrice Maria, cum beatis Apostolis tuis Petro et Paulo, atque Andrea, et omnibus Sanctis, da propitius pacem in diebus nostris: ut ope misericordiae tuae adjuti, et a peccato simus semper liberi, et ab omni perturbatione securi.

P: Deliver us, we beg Thee, O Lord, from every evil, past, present, and to come; and by the intercession of the Blessed and glorious ever-Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and of the holy Apostles, Peter and Paul, and of Andrew, and of all the Saints (The Priest kisses the Paten) mercifully grant peace in our days, that through the assistance of Thy mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all disturbance. Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord (The priest breaks the Host in half, over the chalice, then breaks off a particle) Who lives and reigns with Thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end.

Verbum. Hoc erat in principio apud Deum. Omnia per ipsum facta sunt, et sine ipso factum est nihil quod factum est; in ipso vita erat, et vita erat lux hominum; et lux in tenebris lucet, et tenebrae eam non comprehenderunt. Fuit homo missus a Deo cui nomen erat Joannes. Hic cenit in testimonium, et testimonium perhiberet de lumine, ut omnes crederent per illum. Non erat ille lux, sed ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine. Erat lux vera quae illuminat omnem hominem venientem in hunc mundum. In mundo erat, et mundus per ipsum factus est et mundus eum non cognovit. In propria venit, et sui eum non receperunt. Quotquot autem receperunt eum, dedit eis potestatem filios Dei fieri; his qui credunt in nomine eius, qui non ex sanquinibus, neque ex voluntate viri, sed ex deo nati sunt.

Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Now a Recessional Hymn is sung as the priest leaves the Altar (High Mass). As the processional Cross passes by, it is customary to bow (profound bow or a bow of the head), cross yourself, and say a silent prayer for the priest.

Prayers after Mass (kneel)
The priest kneels on the steps at the foot of the altar and leads the faithful in these prayers.

The Ave (Hail Mary)
P: Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum; benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus. R: Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen. (Repeated three times) P: Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. R: Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

APOSTOLIC CONSTITUTION
QUO PRIMUM

45

Pope St. Pius V - July 14, 1570 From the very first, upon Our elevation to the chief Apostleship, We gladly turned our mind and energies and directed all out thoughts to those matters which concerned the preservation of a pure liturgy, and We strove with God's help, by every means in our power, to accomplish this purpose. For, besides other decrees of the sacred Council of Trent, there were stipulations for Us to revise and re-edit the sacred books: the Catechism, the Missal and the Breviary. With the Catechism published for the instruction of the faithful, by God's help, and the Breviary thoroughly revised for the worthy praise of God, in order that the Missal and Breviary may be in perfect harmony, as fitting and proper - for its most becoming that there be in the Church only one appropriate manner of reciting the Psalms and only one rite for the celebration of Mass - We deemed it necessary to give our immediate attention to what still remained to be done, viz, the reediting of the Missal as soon as possible. Hence, We decided to entrust this work to learned men of our selection. They very carefully collated all their work with the ancient codices in Our Vatican Library and with reliable, preserved or emended codices from elsewhere. Besides this, these men consulted the works of ancient and approved authors concerning the same sacred rites; and thus they have restored the Missal itself to the original form and rite of the holy Fathers. When this work has been gone over numerous times and further emended, after serious study and reflection, We commanded that the finished product be printed and published as soon as possible, so that all might enjoy the fruits of this labor; and thus, priests would know which prayers to use and which rites and ceremonies they were required to observe from now on in the celebration of Masses.

46

Let all everywhere adopt and observe what has been handed down by the Holy Roman Church, the Mother and Teacher of the other churches, and let Masses not be sung or read according to any other formula than that of this Missal published by Us. This ordinance applies henceforth, now, and forever, throughout all the provinces of the Christian world, to all patriarchs, cathedral churches, collegiate and parish churches, be they secular or religious, both of men and of women - even of military orders - and of churches or chapels without a specific congregation in which conventual Masses are sung aloud in choir or read privately in accord with the rites and customs of the Roman Church. This Missal is to be used by all churches, even by those which in their authorization are made exempt, whether by Apostolic indult, custom, or privilege, or even if by oath or official confirmation of the Holy See, or have their rights and faculties guaranteed to them by any other manner whatsoever. This new rite alone is to be used unless approval of the practice of saying Mass differently was given at the very time of the institution and confirmation of the church by Apostolic See at least 200 years ago, or unless there has prevailed a custom of a similar kind which has been continuously followed for a period of not less than 200 years, in which most cases We in no wise rescind their above-mentioned prerogative or custom. However, if this Missal, which we have seen fit to publish, be more agreeable to these latter, We grant them permission to celebrate Mass according to its rite, provided they have the consent of their bishop or prelate or of their whole Chapter, everything else to the contrary notwithstanding. All other of the churches referred to above, however, are hereby denied the use of other missals, which are to be discontinued entirely and absolutely; whereas, by this present Constitution, which will be valid henceforth, now, and forever, We order and enjoin that nothing must be added to Our recently published Missal, nothing omitted from it, nor anything whatsoever be changed within it under the penalty of Our displeasure. We specifically command each and every patriarch, administrator, and all other persons or whatever ecclesiastical dignity they may be, be they even cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, or possessed of any other rank or pre-eminence, and We order them in virtue of holy obedience to chant or to read the Mass according to the rite and manner and norm herewith laid down by Us and, hereafter, to discontinue and completely discard all other rubrics and rites of other missals, however ancient, which they have customarily followed; and they must not in celebrating Mass presume to introduce any ceremonies or recite any prayers other than those contained in this Missal. Furthermore, by these presents [this law], in virtue of Our Apostolic authority, We grant and concede in perpetuity that, for the chanting or reading of the Mass in any church whatsoever, this Missal is hereafter to be followed absolutely, without any scruple of conscience or fear of incurring any penalty, judgment, or censure, and may freely and lawfully be used. Nor are superiors, administrators, canons, chaplains, and other secular priests, or religious, of

47

whatever title designated, obliged to celebrate the Mass otherwise than as enjoined by Us. We likewise declare and ordain that no one whosoever is forced or coerced to alter this Missal, and that this present document cannot be revoked or modified, but remain always valid and retain its full force notwithstanding the previous constitutions and decrees of the Holy See, as well as any general or special constitutions or edicts of provincial or synodal councils, and notwithstanding the practice and custom of the aforesaid churches, established by long and immemorial prescription - except, however, if more than two hundred years' standing. It is Our will, therefore, and by the same authority, We decree that, after We publish this constitution and the edition of the Missal, the priests of the Roman Curia are, after thirty days, obliged to chant or read the Mass according to it; all others south of the Alps, after three months; and those beyond the Alps either within six months or whenever the Missal is available for sale. Wherefore, in order that the Missal be preserved incorrupt throughout the whole world and kept free of flaws and errors, the penalty for nonobservance for printers, whether mediately or immediately subject to Our dominion, and that of the Holy Roman Church, will be the forfeiting of their books and a fine of one hundred gold ducats, payable ipso facto to the Apostolic Treasury. Further, as for those located in other parts of the world, the penalty is excommunication latae sententiae, and such other penalties as may in Our judgment be imposed; and We decree by this law that they must not dare or presume either to print or to publish or to sell, or in any way to accept books of this nature without Our approval and consent, or without the express consent of the Apostolic Commissaries of those places, who will be appointed by Us. Said printer must receive a standard Missal and agree faithfully with it and in no wise vary from the Roman Missal of the large type (secundum magnum impressionem). Accordingly, since it would be difficult for this present pronouncement to be sent to all parts of the Christian world and simultaneously come to light everywhere, We direct that it be, as usual, posted and published at the doors of the Basilica of the Prince of the Apostles, also at the Apostolic Chancery, and on the street at Campo Flora; furthermore, We direct that printed copies of this same edict signed by a notary public and made official by an ecclesiastical dignitary possess the same indubitable validity everywhere and in every nation, as if Our manuscript were shown there. Therefore, no one whosoever is permitted to alter this notice of Our permission, statute, ordinance, command, precept, grant, indult, declaration, will, decree, and prohibition. Should know that he will incur the wrath of Almighty God and of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul. Given at St. Peter's in the year of the Lord's Incarnation, 1570, on the 14th of July of the Fifth year of Our Pontificate.

SUMMORUM PONTIFICUM
Apostolic Letter in the form "Motu Proprio"

48

Pope Benedict XVI Up to our own times, it has been the constant concern of Supreme Pontiffs to ensure that the Church of Christ offers a worthy ritual to the Divine Majesty, "to the praise and glory of His name," and "to the benefit of all His Holy Church." Since time immemorial it has been necessary -- as it is also for the future -- to maintain the principle according to which "each particular Church must concur with the universal Church, not only as regards the doctrine of the faith and the sacramental signs, but also as regards the usages universally accepted by uninterrupted apostolic Tradition, which must be observed not only to avoid errors but also to transmit the integrity of the faith, because the Church's law of prayer corresponds to her law of faith."[1] Among the Pontiffs who showed that requisite concern, particularly outstanding is the name of St. Gregory the Great, who made every effort to ensure that the new peoples of Europe received both the Catholic faith and the treasures of worship and culture that had been accumulated by the Romans in preceding centuries. He commanded that the form of the sacred liturgy as celebrated in Rome (concerning both the Sacrifice of Mass and the Divine Office) be conserved. He took great concern to ensure the dissemination of monks and nuns who, following the Rule of St. Benedict, together with the announcement of the Gospel, illustrated with their lives the wise provision of their rule that "nothing should be placed before the work of God." In this way the sacred liturgy, celebrated according to the Roman use, enriched not only the faith and piety but also the culture of many peoples. It is known, in fact, that the Latin liturgy of the Church in its various forms, in each century of the Christian era, has been a spur to the spiritual life of many saints, has reinforced many peoples in the virtue of religion and fecundated their piety. Many other Roman pontiffs, in the course of the centuries, showed particular solicitude in ensuring that the sacred liturgy accomplished this task more effectively. Outstanding among them is St. Pius V who, sustained by great pastoral zeal and following the exhortations of the Council of Trent, renewed the entire liturgy of the Church, oversaw the publication of liturgical books amended and "renewed in accordance with the norms 49

of

the

fathers,"

and

Church.

One of the liturgical books of the Roman rite is the Roman Missal, which developed in the city of Rome and, with the passing of the centuries, little by little took forms very similar to that it has had in recent times. "It was towards this same goal that succeeding Roman Pontiffs directed their energies during the subsequent centuries in order to ensure that the rites and liturgical books were brought up to date and when necessary clarified. From the beginning of this century they undertook a more general reform."[2] Thus our predecessors Clement VIII, Urban VIII, St. Pius X,[3] Benedict XV, Pius XII and Blessed John XXIII all played a part. In more recent times, the Second Vatican Council expressed a desire that the respectful reverence due to divine worship should be renewed and adapted to the needs of our time. Moved by this desire our predecessor, the Supreme Pontiff Paul VI, approved, in 1970, reformed and partly renewed liturgical books for the Latin Church. These, translated into the various languages of the world, were willingly accepted by bishops, priests and faithful. John Paul II amended the third typical edition of the Roman Missal. Thus Roman Pontiffs have operated to ensure that "this kind of liturgical edifice ... should again appear resplendent for its dignity and harmony."[4] But in some regions, no small numbers of faithful adhered and continue to adhere with great love and affection to the earlier liturgical forms. These had so deeply marked their culture and their spirit that in 1984 the Supreme Pontiff John Paul II, moved by a concern for the pastoral care of these faithful, with the special indult "Quattuor Abhinc Anno," issued by the Congregation for Divine Worship, granted permission to use the Roman Missal published by Blessed John XXIII in the year 1962. Later, in the year 1988, John Paul II with the apostolic letter given as "motu proprio, "Ecclesia Dei," exhorted bishops to make generous use of this power in favor of all the faithful who so desired. Following the insistent prayers of these faithful, long deliberated upon by our predecessor John Paul II, and after having listened to the views of the cardinal fathers of the consistory of 22 March 2006, having reflected deeply upon all aspects of the question, invoked the Holy Spirit and trusting in the help of God, with these apostolic letters we establish the following: Art 1. The Roman Missal promulgated by Paul VI is the ordinary expression of the "Lex orandi" (Law of prayer) of the Catholic Church of the Latin rite. Nonetheless, the Roman Missal promulgated by St. Pius V and reissued by Blessed John XXIII is to be considered as an extraordinary expression of that same "Lex orandi," and must be given due honor for its venerable and ancient usage. These two expressions of the Church's "Lex orandi" will in no any way lead to a division in the Church's "Lex credendi" (Law of belief). They are, in fact two usages of the one Roman rite. It is, therefore, permissible to celebrate the Sacrifice of the Mass following the typical edition of the Roman Missal promulgated by Blessed John XXIII in 1962 and never

50

abrogated, as an extraordinary form of the liturgy of the Church. The conditions for the use of this Missal as laid down by earlier documents "Quattuor Abhinc Annis" and "Ecclesia Dei," are substituted as follows: Art. 2. In Masses celebrated without the people, each Catholic priest of the Latin rite, whether secular or regular, may use the Roman Missal published by Blessed Pope John XXIII in 1962, or the Roman Missal promulgated by Pope Paul VI in 1970, and may do so on any day with the exception of the Easter Triduum. For such celebrations, with either one Missal or the other, the priest has no need for permission from the Apostolic See or from his ordinary. Art. 3. Communities of institutes of consecrated life and of societies of apostolic life, of either pontifical or diocesan right, wishing to celebrate Mass in accordance with the edition of the Roman Missal promulgated in 1962, for conventual or "community" celebration in their oratories, may do so. If an individual community or an entire institute or society wishes to undertake such celebrations often, habitually or permanently, the decision must be taken by the superiors major, in accordance with the law and following their own specific decrees and statues. Art. 4. Celebrations of Mass as mentioned above in art. 2 may -- observing all the norms of law -- also be attended by faithful who, of their own free will, ask to be admitted. Art. 5. §1 In parishes, where there is a stable group of faithful who adhere to the earlier liturgical tradition, the pastor should willingly accept their requests to celebrate the Mass according to the rite of the Roman Missal published in 1962, and ensure that the welfare of these faithful harmonizes with the ordinary pastoral care of the parish, under the guidance of the bishop in accordance with Canon 392, avoiding discord and favoring the unity of the whole Church. §2 Celebration in accordance with the Missal of Blessed John XXIII may take place on working days; while on Sundays and feast days one such celebration may also be held. §3 For faithful and priests who request it, the pastor should also allow celebrations in this extraordinary form for special circumstances such as marriages, funerals or occasional celebrations, i.e., pilgrimages. §4 Priests who use the Missal of Blessed John XXIII must be qualified to do so and not juridically impeded. §5 In churches that are not parish or conventual churches, it is the duty of the rector of the church to grant the above permission. Art. 6. In Masses celebrated in the presence of the people in accordance with the Missal of Blessed John XXIII, the readings may be given in the vernacular, using editions recognized by the Apostolic See.

51

Art. 7. If a group of lay faithful, as mentioned in art. 5 §1, has not obtained satisfaction to their requests from the pastor, they should inform the diocesan bishop. The bishop is strongly requested to satisfy their wishes. If he cannot arrange for such celebration to take place, the matter should be referred to the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei. Art. 8. A bishop who, desirous of satisfying such requests, but who for various reasons is unable to do so, may refer the problem to the Commission Ecclesia Dei to obtain counsel and assistance. Art. 9. §1 The pastor, having attentively examined all aspects, may also grant permission to use the earlier ritual for the administration of the sacraments of baptism, marriage, penance, and the anointing of the sick, if the good of souls would seem to require it. § 2 Ordinaries are given the right to celebrate the sacrament of confirmation using the earlier Roman Pontifical, if the good of souls would seem to require it. § 2 Clerics ordained "in sacris constitutis" may use the Roman Breviary promulgated by Blessed John XXIII in 1962. Art. 10. The ordinary of a particular place, if he feels it appropriate, may erect a personal parish in accordance with Canon 518 for celebrations following the ancient form of the Roman rite, or appoint a chaplain, while observing all the norms of law. Art. 11. The Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, erected by John Paul II in 1988[5], continues to exercise its function. Said commission will have the form, duties and norms that the Roman Pontiff wishes to assign it. Art. 12. This commission, apart from the powers it enjoys, will exercise the authority of the Holy See, supervising the observance and application of these dispositions. We order that everything We have established with these apostolic letters issued as "motu proprio" be considered as "established and decreed," and to be observed from Sept. 14 of this year, feast of the Exaltation of the Cross, whatever there may be to the contrary. From Rome, at St. Peter's, July 7, 2007, third year of Our Pontificate.
