At the Council of Trent, the subject was raised whether it was correct to refer to the unconsecrated elements of bread and wine as “immaculata hostia” (spotless victim) and “calix salutaris” (chalice of salvation) in the offertory prayers. Likewise the legitimacy of the making the sign of the cross over the elements after the Eucharistic consecration was discussed.

Video • Holy Mass in Hollywood, 1944
published 22 December 2015 by Andrew Leung

ERE IS AN OLD VIDEO from the 1944 Hollywood film, “Christmas Holiday“. The video shows a Christmas Solemn High Mass that was attended by Abigail Manette (Deanna Durbin), who is the main character in the movie. So, if you are wondering how Masses were like in the bigger parishes in the 1940s, this is probably a good example.
