"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

“We must say it plainly: the Roman rite as we knew it exists no more. It has gone. Some walls of the structure have fallen, others have been altered—we can look at it as a ruin or as the partial foundation of a new building. Think back, if you remember it, to the Latin sung High Mass with Gregorian chant. Compare it with the modern post-Vatican II Mass. It is not only the words, but also the tunes and even certain actions that are different. In fact it is a different liturgy of the Mass.”
— Fr. Joseph Gelineau (1978)
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.
