The Roman Missal 2000 by ert554898


									Welcoming the Roman Missal, 3rd Edition

Bishop Paul S. Loverde, Diocese of Arlington

This translation means more than
merely learning new responses to
say during Mass, although the words
have a particular purpose and are
important. It is, ultimately, a call to
strengthen our prayer to God during
the liturgy and to more actively and
authentically participate: to truly
“lift our minds and hearts to God.”       2
  The History of the Roman Missal
      Based upon Roman Missal Formational Materials provided by the Secretariat for the Liturgy
                    of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, 2010.

      In the earliest centuries of the Church,
    there were no books containing prescribed
         liturgical prayers, texts, or other
  instructions. Collections of prayers developed
   gradually for use in particular locations and
situations such as for a particular monastery, for
    the Pope, or for other local churches. Such
 collections were contained in libelli (“booklets”)
  which over centuries were drawn together into
            larger collections of prayers.
The History of the Roman Missal cont.
  The first true liturgical books which could
      be called “missals” were found in
        monasteries beginning around
         the 12th and 13th Centuries.

   A missale contained not only the prayers
     but the biblical readings, the chants,
 and the rubrics for the celebration of Mass.
The History of the Roman Missal cont.
         The first book bearing the name
      Missale Romanum appeared in 1474.
  But it was not until after the Council of Trent
that Pope Pius V, in 1570, promulgated an edition
    of the Missale Romanum that was to be in
  obligatory use throughout the Latin Church.
      This marked the first official attempt
   at uniformity in the celebration of the Mass
           in the history of the Church.      5
The History of the Roman Missal cont.
 Since then, to accommodate the ongoing development
 of the Liturgy, new editions of the Missale Romanum
  were promulgated by Popes for use in the Church:
                1604 – Pope Clement VIII
                1634 – Pope Urban VIII
                1884 – Pope Leo XIII
                1920 – Pope Benedict XV
                1962 – Pope John XXIII
                1970 – Pope Paul VI
                1975 – Pope Paul VI
                2002 – Pope John Paul II
Vatican II, like other Church councils,
recognized the liturgy as the principal
source of power and
grace for the Church
The Father is the source of all
blessings who through Christ
and by the activity of the Holy
Spirit sanctifies the Church.

Liturgy is the work of the Church which,
as the Body of Christ united to her Head
 and, by the activity of the Holy Spirit,
renders true worship back to the Father.
