Just Released: Ignatius Press 1962 Ordo Missae

Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite

Responding to the Pope’s initiative in Summorum Pontificum, the Ignatius Press has now released an Order of Mass for the Extraordinary form of the Roman Rite. The Mass-book may be purchased online here. This is a completely new edition, not a reprint of previous books, published under the Imprimatur of the Archbishop of Melbourne, Australia, the Most Rev’d Denis Hart. In a Foreword the Archbishop remarks:

I am delighted that the Missal of Blessed John XXIII has been restored as the Extraordinary form of Mass in the Roman Rite because of the spiritual values it contains, together with the focus on worship with Christ to the Father. This Mass book invites us to be drawn into the mystery which is God’s love for us in giving his own Son at the Last Supper and on Calvary for our redemption. The book will serve to help us understand the prayers and be united with the priest in offering the one, perfect, unbloody sacrifice to God the Father, which brought our redemption.

This booklet, ideal for parish use, is not only a guide for those acquainting themselves with the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite (popularly known as the Tridentine Rite), but also a resource for those already familiar with this rich liturgy. Beautifully typeset and illustrated, The Order of Mass also contains an introduction to the Extraordinary Form, giving a brief history of the development of the liturgy. Other features include:

• Foreword by the Archbishop of Melbourne, Australia,

• Devotional prayers for before and after Mass

• The prefaces of the season or feast, as well as select prefaces from the Pauline Missal approved for use with the Extraordinary Form

• Thanksgiving prayers after Holy Communion

• Motu propio “Summorum Pontificum” of Pope Benedict XVI

• Letter of Pope Benedict XVI to Bishops

• Decisions of the Ecclesia Dei Commission
