For a simple explanation of the Latin Mass 
go to the bottom of this page. For the Latin Mass Society website click HERE!

In England the E. F. Latin Mass has gone from having 6 Mass centres, seven years ago, to 187 Mass centres today. The Mass is also having a wide resurgence in America. In one example a quarter of the state of Texas has reverted from the New Mass to only celebrating the E.F. Mass. 

To see why this is happening watch the short video below: 




JUVENTUTEM

THE TRADITIONAL LATIN MASS 
WORLD YOUTH DAY ORGANISATION

Juventutem is an international movement of young Roman Catholics of the ages 18 to 35 who are attached to the Tridentine Mass which came out of the World Youth Day Movement.  

The aim of the society is to foster and strengthen relationships between younger Catholics at the national and international levels, and to encourage and assist them in developing their faith.

Some Basic Background to the 
E.F. Latin Mass



THERE ARE THREE TYPES OF MASS

Missa Lecta (Spoken Mass)
A spoken Mass by a Priest without Deacon and Subdeacon

Missa Cantata (Sung Mass)
A sung Mass (chanted by the Priest and choir) without Deacon and Subdeacon.

Missa Solemnis (Solemn Mass)
A sung Mass with Deacon and Subdeacon assisting the Priest.


Below is probably the best video on YouTube in HD 
of a High Solemn Mass




THE TRADITIONAL LATIN MASS

The Tridentine Mass and the Mass in the 1962 Missal are fundamentally the same. Therefore, when you go to Latin Mass now, you are attending a Mass that Edmund Campion would recognise.

There are differences between the original [1570] Missal and the [1962] Missal, but fundamentally it is the same Mass. They are both the “Tridentine Mass”. There are differences, because there have always been small developments in the context of organic growth (new Saints, Feast days, ect.), but it is the same Mass.”

For instance, if you took Saint Edmund Campion from 1570, transporting him to today and gave him a current 1962 Missal, he would know it was the Mass, and have no problem saying it. He may be surprised to find some new feast days in the Proper of Saints (including himself!) and some other minute changes, but it would be the same Mass.

The Novus Ordo (the modern Mass) is a replacement - even using Eucharistic Prayer 1, and the Mass was said entirely in Latin, Saint Edmund Campion would find himself completely shocked and hopelessly lost!

After Vatican II (1965) there were wholesale changes to the Mass in accordance with the Council document Sacrosanctum Concillium.

 The 1962 Missal, just means “The Mass as it was in 1962 (before Vatican II started)”.

And so, in 1969 the Apostolic Consitiution Missale Romanum finally phased out the Mass that preceded it for generations, replacing it with the Novus Ordo, but the Mass from 1570-1962 was never stopped and after Benedict XVI’s Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum Latin Mass can now be celebrated without the permission of a Bishop.
