The nice people at the Fraternity of St. Peter’s offices sent me a copy of their Ordo.
I looked at the Angelus Press Ordo recently and posted about it.
My initial observations about the FSSP Ordo are a) the FSSP is in union with Rome and b) the biggest difference is that this Ordo is spiral bound. Spiral binding allows it to lie open and flat, which is a plus.
There is an English translation of the “prefaces” in the Missale Romanumi, always useful and interesting to review.
Some prayers useful during the liturgical year are in the back, which is helpful if a “sacristy manual” isn’t available.
Some documents important for the reestablishment of the Extraordinary Form are appended. However, a flaw that can be corrected next year is that, while the 1988 Motu Proprio is identified by its Latin name (Ecclesia Dei) and the 2007 “emancipation proclamation” as I call it is identified in Latin (Summorum Pontificum), the recent clarificatory Instruction from the Pontifical Commission is not identified by its Latin name: Universae Ecclesiae.
I will use this opportunity to plug my Universae Ecclesiae coffee mug. Buy one now HERE. It has in English and Latin the important paragraph in Universae Ecclesiae explaining why the provisions of Summorum Pontificum were promulgated and why they are important.
Do you know some priest or bishop who doesn’t get it when it comes to the Extraordinary Form? Put one of these into their hands.
In any event, the Ordo is very useful. EVERY SACRISTY of a Latin Rite church should have an Ordo for BOTH the Ordinary and Extraordinary Form.
