Votive Mass - "for the election of a pope"

There is provision within the 1962 Missal for several votive Masses that can be celebrated in certain grave situations.

Rorate Caeli covered it recently and covered all the technical points.


We celebrate this Mass this evening in our parish and I think it would be helpful for anyone else so able to do so as well.

What helps with any situation? Prayer!

What is the highest form of prayer? The holy sacrifice of the Mass!


I believe this was the mass celebrated this morning at the weekly EF at a nearby parish. I definitely heard the word “Pontifex” several times.

Is this Mass actually in the 1962 Roman Missal? All the Votive Mass for the election of a pope sends me too is a page for Pentecost; or am I looking in the wrong spot?
