  CNS STORY: Tridentine Mass: Pope looks for bridge to tradition
From the outside, allowing the old Mass has been seen primarily as a concession to the followers of the late Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, who was excommunicated in 1988 for his intransigence on liturgical and other reforms of Vatican II.
In one revealing speech to Catholic traditionalists in 1998, he said bluntly that the old "low Mass," with its whispered prayers at the altar and its silent congregation, "was not what liturgy should be, which is why it was not painful for many people" when it disappeared.
The French bishops also said traditionalist groups that use the Tridentine rite should be expected to give "an unequivocal gesture of assent to the teachings of the church's authentic magisterium," its teaching authority.

 Tridentine Mass - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In addition to "Tridentine Mass," Traditional Catholics use the terms "ancient Mass," "traditional Mass," etc., because Pope Pius V’s revision of the Roman Missal aimed at restoring the Missal “to the original form and rite of the holy Fathers”.
Though what was called the Pontifical High Mass, Mass solemnly celebrated by a bishop accompanied by a deacon and subdeacon and other ministers, was the original form of the Mass, the Mass most people were familiar with was celebrated by a single priest who spoke the words without chanting.
Its programme is more sweeping than celebrating Mass in the “Tridentine” form, for it rejects declarations of the Second Vatican Council on relations with non-Catholics and on religious freedom, claiming that some inviolable principles have been betrayed in these and other official documents of the Roman Catholic Church and also in the Church’s practice.

 The Latin Mass – The Journal of Catholic Culture and Tradition
The Tridentine Mass means the rite of the Mass which was fixed by Pope Pius V at the request of the Council of Trent and promulgated on December 5, 1570.
As in the case of the Tridentine Mass, we emphasize the importance of a correct understanding of what was understood by the Mass of Pope Pius V which fulfilled the wishes of the Council fathers at Trent.
The Mass of Paul VI (so-called because the liturgical commission for the reform after Vatican 11 worked under the ultimate responsibility of the Pope) emphasizes rather the integral part of the Mass, Communion, with the result that the sacrifice is transformed into what could be termed a meal.

 BBC - Religion & Ethics - Tridentine Mass: History of the Tridentine Mass
The final version of the Tridentine Mass was codified in 1570 by the Council of Trent, but some of the material in it is nearly 1000 years older.
But the Tridentine reforms were in fact more in the nature of a restoration of the medieval status quo than a truly constructive and creative renewal of Christian worship in the light of the Gospel and arising from a need to adapt worship to the requirements of a new age.
Incidentally, the Tridentine Mass didn't completely remove all other orders of the Mass: several others survived on a small scale, among them the Ambrosian rite, the Mozarabic rite of Toledo, the rite of Braga, the Carthusian rite, the Carmelite rite and the Dominican rite.

 BBC - Religion & Ethics - Tridentine Mass: What is the Tridentine Mass?
The Tridentine Mass is the old form of Mass that was authorised for use throughout the Roman Catholic Church from 1570 until it was replaced following the second Vatican Council in the 1960s.
The Tridentine Mass is also known as the 'Old Mass according to the 1962 Missal', and sometimes inaccurately called 'The Latin Mass'.
The most obvious difference between the old Mass and the new Mass was that it promoted the use of the language of the place where the mass was being celebrated (vernacular language) rather than Latin.

 Tridentine rite returns to Nashville Diocese
The Mass at St. Andrew was the first time a Tridentine Mass had been celebrated in the Diocese of Nashville since Pope Benedict XVI relaxed restrictions on the use of the Latin-language liturgy, which predates the Second Vatican Council, last July.
With the Tridentine rite, the prayers of the Mass are said or sung in Latin and the priest stands at the altar facing the tabernacle with his back to the congregation.
However, the tradition and pageantry of the Tridentine Mass should be preserved, said Hickey, who encouraged the high school students in her religious education class at St. Andrew to attend the Tridentine Mass.

 CNS STORY: Pope relaxes restrictions on use of Tridentine Mass
The pope said Mass celebrated according to the 1962 Roman Missal, commonly known as the Tridentine rite, should be made available in every parish where groups of the faithful desire it.
The text does not require all parishes to automatically establish a Tridentine Mass schedule, but it said that where "a group of faithful attached to the previous liturgical tradition exists stably," the pastor should "willingly accede" to their request to make the old Mass available.
He emphasized that although the new Mass of 1970 was designed to replace the old liturgy, the 1962 Roman Missal was "never juridically abrogated." Its restoration as an extraordinary form of worship thus does not undermine the council's decisions, he said.

In a recent "motu proprio," Pope Benedict XVI relaxed restrictions on the use of the Tridentine Mass, the Latin-language liturgy that predates the Second Vatican Council.
Many of the Masses during the week were requiem Masses (for the dead) in which the priest wore fl vestments.
As true as this is, celebrating Mass or, as is often the case today, several Masses in a day taxes a priest's ability to be reverent, one in thought with the words he is reciting.

 What is the Tridentine Latin Mass?
It's the Mass used in the Catholic Church for almost 1500 years, until the introduction of the Mass of Pope Paul VI following the Second Vatican Council.
After the introduction of Pope Paul VI's new Mass, the only priests given permission to say the Tridentine Mass publicly were priests of England and Wales, thanks to an indult (or permission) granted by the Vatican to Cardinal Heenan of Westminster.
Cardinal Mayer, the former head of the Vatican Commission Ecclesia Dei, said the Pope had spoken of the "lawfulness" of the Tridentine Mass and of the "legitimate aspiration" of Catholics to celebrate or attend that Mass.

On September 14, 2007, the usage of the "Tridentine Mass" was officially widened to allow this form of the Mass without needing permission from the bishop.
Mass is where Christ is made present on the altar and where Christ is offered as a sacrifice for us to our Heavenly Father.
With the way that the priests are stretched today and the amount of Masses that they offer already for the people, it is viewed by me to be impossible to be able to say the Tridentine Mass frequently enough to do it justice.

In presenting a critique of the Mass of Pope Paul VI (Novus Ordo) the comment was made that a commentary concerning problems with the Latin Tridentine Mass would follow.
A grave concern regarding the Tridentine Mass is that the Consecration is said silently allowing a corrupt priest to invalidly consecrate (Note: a false or automatically excommunicated priest does not have the authority to validly consecrate.).
No Mass form has ever met the criteria for being infallible (permanent) as there has never been a universally mandatory form (there were many exceptions authorized while the Tridentine Mass was mandated in the Latin Rite and since this Mass was originally authorized it has been updated on different occasions).

To use the Tridentine Mass as the symbol of conservative Catholicism in the Baltimore area, or America in general, is to miss the point and to hide some of the fascinating divisions in the modern church.
The Tridentine Mass question is not whether it will fill the pews, from my experience in a conservative parish it does not do that (although reverently celebrated NO Masses may have cut down on the demand).

 About the Tridentine Rite
The Tridentine Mass takes its name from the Council of Trent (1545-63), which had called for a modest revision of the Roman rite.
Informally known as the Tridentine, the missal does not so much as initiate any new practices as codify a tradition of worship which had been developing organically in Rome and other parts of Europe since the 300's.
It also refers more to the Blessed Virgin Mary and to the angels and saints (both individually and en masse), both as a reflection of the mediatorial character of grace and as a reminder of the celestial community to which Christians on earth are joined.

The key to seeing the relation between Calvary and the Mass is the fact that the same identical Jesus Christ now glorified is present on the altar at Mass as He was present in His mortal humanity on the Cross.
Since the highest form of honor to God is sacrifice, the Mass is a continuation of Christ's sacrifice of praise and gratitude to God the Father.

From that moment things settled down, the Mass began, and while the nerves didn't disappear, they were no longer controlling me. I think fear of the old is often as hard to cope with as fear of the new.
When the Mass was over (and I am sure I didn't make too many mistakes), the church locked, and a gin and tonic poured into a slightly larger glass than usual, there came a time to reflect.

 Tridentine (Latin) Mass, St. Josaphat Church, Detroit, MI
The Tridentine Rite is that form of Mass which was used almost everywhere in the Roman Catholic Church before the Second Vatican Council in the 1960’s.
Most Catholics were very satisfied with this situation, especially since the new rite did allow for the continuation of the use of the Latin language if desired and even the use of the old altar where the priest faced the tabernacle instead of the people and the use of the Communion rail.
For the first Mass, the St. Josaphat Parish Council served as ushers and greeters but this should be handled by those who will be attending the Mass.
