I was hoping to find some help in regards to a Sunday missal for the Extraordinary Form I have recently come into possession of. I feel this is the most appropriate topical-section to post in though I beg forgiveness if that is not the case.
I am not new to the Extraordinary Form, though it is only recently that I am trying to attend every Sunday. For this, my grandmother has allowed me to use a Sunday missal that belonged to her sister. It’s old and the covers are being held together with tape though that isn’t an issue; I love old books!
What is an issue though is the dating. The only date I can find is beneath the Imprimatur, June 1944. So I think it is safe to assume that the missal isn’t in accordance with the current 1962 Missale Romanum used to celebrate the Extraordinary Form!
I would like to know if using this 1944 missal will cause any problems? What is different in the Rite of the Mass contained within the 1962 missal compared with earlier editions (within a frame of twenty years, I would say)?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
