This is for seremina, and anyone esle who is interested (I’m sure some of you already knew the answer)…
I didn’t forget your questions about EWTN and my promise to watch their Mass and report back. As I expected, it is the Mass of Paul VI or Pauline Mass. You will see it described as the Novus Ordo or “NO” by most people on this Forum. I don’t use the term, because at this point, IMO it isn’t “Novus” (in fact, for me, it’s the only one I have known). Here is a good site with the side-by-side Latin and English for this Mass: saintmaryparish.net/ordo_missae.htm
The differences between the Mass at my parish and the EWTN Mass are minor - we pray the ‘myserium fidei’ (I think I called it the memorare in my other post…oops…still learning my Latin prayers :o ) in Latin, they pray it in English. They pray the response after readings/gospel and the benediction in Latin, we pray them in English. From what I can tell, this is one of the problems with the current Ordo Missae in Latin - how much Latin varies from parish to parish and even Mass to Mass.
The other problem is that a Latin Pauline Mass is very difficult to find. In our Mass times listing, there is no mention of it. There is at one Church I attended in California. You will probably have difficulty finding one in your area…if there is one. There is a resource www.masstimes.org for finding Masses in your area, but the posts may not tell you if they offer a Latin Pauline Mass.
The other confusion is with the term “Latin Rite.” This term includes Mass in the vernacular. These are the Western Rites:
*]Rite of an overwhelming majority of Roman Catholics, and majority of Catholics in general.
*]Named because of the use of Latin in the Liturgy, and is still part of Canon Law: “The eucharistic celebration is to be carried out either in the Latin language or in another language, provided the liturgical texts have been lawfully approved.” (Cannon 928, 1983 Code)[/LIST]Ambrosian
*]The Rite of the Archdiocese of Milan, Italy
*]Thought to be of an early origin; probably consolidated, but not originated, by St. Ambrose in the 4th century. [/LIST]Bragan
*]Rite of the Archdiocese of Braga, the Primal See of Portugal, it is only occasionally used.
*]Derives from the 12th century or earlier.[/LIST]Mozarabic
*]Confined to the Rite of the Iberian peninsula-specifically, the Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Toledo, Spain, and 6 of its parishes.
*]Known to exist from at least the 6th century, but probably with roots to the original evangelization.
*]Beginning in the 11th century it was generally replaced by the Roman Rite, although it has remained in the locations listed above. Its celebration today is generally semi-private.[/LIST]Dominican
*]Rite of the Order of Friars Preacher (OP), founded by St. Dominic in 1215.[/LIST]Carmelite
*]Rite of the Order of Carmel, whose modern foundation was by St. Berthold c.1154.[/LIST]Carthusian
*]Rite of the Cathusian Order founded by St. Bruno in 1084.[/LIST]
In addition, there are Eastern Rites (also found at that link).
I think your best bet to find a Mass in Latin is to find a Traditional Latin Mass (sometimes referred to as “Tridentine”) in your area. Hopefully, there are some indults in Ontario.
