This is confirmation of what we already know.

From a friend:

…..1962 Missale Romanum!!! (and Latin breviaries are not far behind..)

The AD should play a gingle like “Tradition, works every time it’s tried” or “Catholic identity, 20 centuries of guaranteed success” or “2000 years: how’s that for time-tested reliability?”

“But wait, there’s MORE! Young people like it! With a New “old” Missal you get several young vocations a year and countless graces a day! Order Now!”

No. 9 is also interesting. That’s certainly due to either more parish priests educating their people, or the faithful themselves getting interested and looking for stuff. “Gravitational” pull full steam ahead! Of course the actual numbers would be interesting to know, but it’s still a pretty comforting to see no?

    My priest commented to me last week that it is the young people, young families coming to the old Latin Masses, not just the old who are there for strolls down memory lane.

    I am waiting for a Latin Missal to arrive at my local Catholic store; my 11 year old son has expressed an interest in learning Latin now. :)


    Has anyone seen the latest ALTAR EDITION of the ’62 Missal printed by the Vatican (without the notes by that Manoli (sp.?) fellow. Is it good quality?
