Latin Mass

I am thinking about attending a latin Mass this weekend. I am 25 where can i find a missal, so I can participate. You probably already figured out because of my age I have never attendend one

There will likely be missalettes available in the back or in the pews. They will help you follow the mass with English translations.

Once you go to a Tridentine Mass, you won’t want to go ANYWHERE else.

Just remember, don’t give the responses, unless you are an altar boy, or in the choir. Some people will give the responses, but in my opinion it is more respectful to keep silent.

Also, don’t say any of the prayers along with the Priest.

So remember, be completely silent, except if you want to join in with the entrance and recessional hymns.

I don’t agree with this post. Didn’t Pope Piux XII encourage the laity to respond with the servers and choir?

I don’t know if you can find the missal on line, but they should have the missals at the Mass.

If you want to compare the Tridentine and the NO look at this…

I hope you enjoy the beauty, splendor and reverence of the TLM. I was awe-inspired by it the first time I went, for others it takes a little time.

God bless.
