Tridentine Mass Missals For Traditional Latin Mass


Tridentine MassThe Tridentine Mass is the Roman Rite Mass which appears in typical editions of the Roman Missal published from 1570 to 1962. The most widely used Mass liturgy in the world until the introduction of the Novus Ordo Mass in 1969, it is celebrated in Liturgical Latin. The Traditional Latin Mass safeguards the Catholic Faith. Pope Pius XII taught that the sacred liturgy is intimately bound up with the truths of the Catholic Faith, and therefore must conform to and reflect these truths — so much so that the liturgy actually serves to safeguard the integrity of the Faith (Mediator Dei). For more information about the Tridentine Mass, read QUO PRIMUM – Apostolic Constitution of His Holiness Pope Saint Pius V on the Celebration Of Masses.
