  Roman Catholic Church. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05

 Roman Rite - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The liturgical rite of the Church of Rome is called the Roman Rite.
The quite distinct term Latin Rite, usually refers not to a liturgical rite but to the particular Church within the Roman Catholic Church that was sometimes referred to also as the Patriarchate of the West, within which liturgical rites other than the now almost universally adopted Roman Rite have been and still are in use.
Again, while in all the other ancient rites the liturgy is chanted throughout, in the Tridentine form of the Roman Rite and for some centuries before, the priest normally merely spoke the words of the Mass, to a large extent silently.

 Roman Rite
The Roman Rite was adopted throughout the West because the local bishops, sometimes kings or emperors, felt that they could not do better than use the rite of the chief bishop of all, at Rome.
The Roman Rite evolved out of the (presumed) universal, but quite fluid, rite of the first three centuries during the (liturgically) almost unknown time from the fourth to the sixth.
As the rite of the Latin Church it is used exclusively in the Latin Patriarchate, with three small exceptions at Milan, Toledo, and in the still Byzantine churches of Southern Italy, Sicily, and Corsica.

 About the Tridentine Rite
Though it is perhaps misleading to generalize, the traditional Roman rite differs from the other historic apostolic rites of the Church -- e.g., the Eastern -- in its focus on mystery rather than mysticism and in its adherence to a different set of apostolic traditions.
For example, many hold that the traditional Roman rite is more reverential, that it fills the soul with a sense of mystery and awe.
Third, while the readings of the old rite are chosen primarily for their moral or doctrinal relevance to the liturgical calendar, they can also be chosen because of a nearby Saint's Day or Station Day.

 Can a Catholic Switch to Another Rite?
The reason the Church resisted allowing the Roman rite to be celebrated in the local language of the people was that it was the best way to stop the rebels of the "Reformation," who wanted to destroy the Mass, and create their own heretical liturgies in their own languages.

Since the Latin rite is the rite of the holy Roman church and this church is mother and teacher of the other churches, the Latin rite should be preferred to all other rites.

 THE ROMAN RITE -- Fr. John Mole
In deciding that the Roman Rite be revised, the Council certainly did not intend that it be uprooted from the soil of the tradition which nourishes it.
The answer we thought of is that it pertains to the genius of the Roman Rite to focus on the Mass primarily as an action of Christ, not of the Holy Spirit whose role rather is to support all that Christ does instead of acting independently.
The new rite is also celebrated in monasteries in an edifying manner which assures its survival, sheltered from the depredations of liturgical reformers over whom the Holy See and the Bishops generally have lost control, as well as from gnostic revolutionary movements such as that of feminism.
