Creation of a Mass Rite


#1

Can Bishops, within their own diocese, create their own Rite of Mass? If so, can they do it without the approval of Rome?


#2

No. All Liturgies evolved. Only the Apostles created from scratch and everything we have today evolved from earlier Liturgies. The oldest one is the Liturgy of St. James.


#3

Good question for L & S. Post appropriately
