This is good news. Wish it was a statement from Rome stating that every parish worldwide, within 2 years would institute a Tridentine Mass schedule alongside the NO. Maybe someday. Ironic that this is taking place in Germany which is already tied to so much resistance to the UA in general. Blessings to the abbey and may the Tridentine flourish once again with the sounds of Gregorian Chant coming from beyond the beautiful mountains of Bavaria !
Another victory! Is there a Trappist Abbey in North America that uses the EF?
Wonderful! Let us pray for our own Trappists here in the US.
“Sid”- every Sunday, i understand the Trappist Abbey in Utah,Our Lady of the Holy Trinity Monastery have Traditional Latin Mass offered
Every Sunday at
but i think it is separate from the Conventual Mass, other than that the Trappists in the USA(and Europe mostly) are in sad 1979 Liturgical shape in general.
PS i understand the Trappist in Germany there will be celebrating the Office as such as well, with Cistercian Rte Monastic variations.
Was Mariawald one of the abbeys involved in the liturgical movement of the 20th century? The name rings a bell.
I thought that they had reintroduced the ancient Trappist order just last year. Am curious about what missal they are using.
You are right, they announced their transition to the Usus Antiquor last year, but they had to train the older form. They already had a few masses celebrated by visiting priests, but the regularly scheduled masses indicate that the Fathers feel able to celebrate themselves now.
Does the omission of Prime inform us whether it is the “old” Office or not…? Or, did the Cistercian Office not have Prime?
