Jump to: navigation, search

The Roman Missal (Missale Romanum) is the liturgical book that contains the texts and rubrics for the celebration of the Latin rite of Mass. Before the high Middle Ages, several books were used at Mass: a Sacramentary with the prayers, one or more books for the Scriptural readings, and one or more books for the antiphons and other chants. Gradually, manuscripts came into being that incorporated parts of more than one of these books, leading finally to versions that were complete in themselves. In 1223 St Francis of Assisi instructed his friars to adopt the form that was in use at the papal court (Rule, chapter 3). They adapted this missal further to the needs of their largely itinerant apostolate. Pope Gregory IX considered, but did not put into effect, the idea of extending this missal, as revised by the Franciscans, to the whole Church; and in 1277 Pope Nicholas II ordered it to be accepted in all churches in the city of Rome. Its use spread throughout Europe, especially after the invention of the printing press; but the editors introduced variations of their own choosing, some of them substantial. Printing also favored the spread of other liturgical texts of less certain orthodoxy. The Council of Trent recognized that an end must be put to the resulting confusion. From the Greek word λειτουργια, which can be transliterated as leitourgia, meaning the work of the people, a liturgy comprises a prescribed religious ceremony, according to the traditions of a particular religion; it may refer to, or include, an elaborate formal ritual (such as the Catholic Mass), a daily activity such...

Beginning in the late seventeenth century, France and neighboring areas saw a flurry of independent missals published by bishops influenced by Jansenism and Gallicanism. This ended when Bishop Pierre-Louis Parisis of Langres and Abbot Guéranger initiated in the nineteenth century a campaign to return to the Roman Missal. Pope Leo XIII then took the opportunity to issue in 1884 a new typical edition that took account of all the changes introduced since the time of Urban VIII. Pope Pius X also undertook a revision of the Roman Missal, which was published and declared typical by his successor Pope Benedict XV on 25 July 1920.

Pius X’s revision made few corrections, omissions and additions to the text of the prayers in the Roman Missal. But there were major changes in the rubrics, changes which were not incorporated in the section entitled Rubricae generales, but were instead printed as an additional section headed Additiones et variationes in rubricis Missalis.

In contrast, the revision by Pope Pius XII, though limited to the liturgy of only four days of the Church’s year, was much bolder, requiring changes even to canon law, which until then had prescribed that, with the exception of Midnight Mass for Christmas, Mass should not begin more than one hour before dawn or later than one hour after midday. In the part that he revised thoroughly, he anticipated some of the changes that were put into effect throughout the year only after the Second Vatican Council. These novelties included the first official introduction of the vernacular language into the liturgy.

For those attached to the earlier form of the Roman rite of Mass, the Holy See, by the letter Quattuor abhinc annos[1] of 3 October 1984, granted authorization on certain conditions to use the 1962 typical edition. Some priests, such as the members of the Society of St. Pius X, use that edition without authorization from the Holy See, claiming that no authorization is necessary. Other groups which came back into union with the Catholic Church such as those priests of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter use the 1962 Missal with indult from their local bishops. Others still, such as the group who under the leadership of Father Clarence Kelly broke away from the Society of St. Pius X in 1983, prefer a still earlier edition of the Roman Missal, doubting that Pope John XXIII was truly Pope.

Although the Roman Rite over the centuries allowed for a multiplicity of different texts in the first part of the prayer (the preface), the second part, called the "Canon actionis," took on a fixed form during the period of the fourth and fifth centuries.
When he promulgated the "editio princeps" of the Roman Missal, our predecessor St. Pius V offered it to the people of Christ as the instrument of liturgical unity and the expression of a pure and reverent worship in the Church.
