About this blogger:
"That good youth, recognizing the dangers in which he was involving himself in so perilous a journey, declared at his departure that the desire of serving God was leading him into a country where he surely expected to meet death." — Fr. Jerome Lalemant, speaking of St. Jean de Lalande

"The Consilium is merely an assembly of people, many of them incompetent, and others well advanced on the road to novelty. The discussions are extremely hurried. Discussions are based on impressions and the voting is chaotic. […] Many of those who have influenced the reform […] have no love, and no veneration of that which has been handed down to us. They begin by despising everything that is actually there. This negative mentality is unjust and pernicious, and unfortunately, Paul VI tends a little to this side. They have all the best intentions, but with this mentality they have only been able to demolish and not to restore."
— Contemporary account of the Consilium by Cardinal Antonelli
Now Available! Online Latin Lectionary For Masses In The Ordinary Form
published 7 November 2013 by Corpus Christi Watershed

190 Missale Romanum Cum Lectionibus REPARING for the Third Edition of the Roman Missal in 2011, study sessions were given around the country, and one thing was noticed over and over again. Catholics had not been aware that the English Mass is a translation from the official Latin. It took an entire decade for MR3 to be translated into English … but that’s another story.

Perhaps the PDFs below will help remedy this situation. You can now download 8,000 pages — the entire Novus Ordo in Latin — due to the kindness of Dr. Peter Kwasniewski. A nice review was published by Deacon Harold Hughesdon (bio) in the 1970s.
