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 Mass of Paul VI 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).

It is celebrated in Latin, however those who attend may follow along in booklets provided, and 1962 Roman Catholic Daily Missal. The beauty, dignity and mystery that surrounds the Mass leaves it standing alone as what has been described by the Saints as “The most beautiful thing this side of Heaven. If you have not yet seen the Tridentine Mass celebrated according to the Extraordinary Form, you have definitely deprived yourself of experiencing the greatest Jewel of our Catholic Faith.” (FSSP).
