Traditional Catholic Churches say their Masses in Latin (the tradional way) rather than English like some of the more modern Churches do.

THANKS!! That was very insightful I love learning “new” things. I would be totally confused with a Latin Mass whether in Eng. or Latin…And more so because I learned all of the prayers in Spanish not English

Since I haven’t been to a Latin Mass, I cannot speak about it’s details.  However, I do know this, unfortunately some parishes associated with traditional Latin Mass are not in Communion with the Vatican.  Much of the time, the priests (they’re still priests) are administering Sacraments that are illicit.  They are not consistent with the Catholic Church and are schismatic.  However, on rare occassions some dioceses that are in Communion with the Pope offer a Latin Mass.

@beekiss…who cares if they are not in communion with the vatican…the vatican is trying to modernize the way of the Catechism and there are some great Churches who are standing up against this and want to continue to do things the way they are traditionally supposed to be done.

Yeah, I was taught Latin in high school (didn’t attend a Catholic school). 

@twoangels:  I was referring to SSPX.  Congrats on finding an order that still uses Latin in their Masses!  Yes, I also know that the Pope is attempting to reintroduce some of their Bishops.  It is nice to be able to travel across the world, say go to Mass at the Vatican and know what’s going on!

@alishadhs4:  I’m just reiterating what the Church says.

My dear friends are very traditional Catholics.  I have attended two Latin mass weddings.  My big tip as a guest at the event… is for the program/missal to include an English translation for those of us who aren’t familiar with Mass in general or have not seen a Latin service.  Making special note of the meaning, because it helps your guests follow the service and meaning.  Also if your church has special rules for clothing etc… let your guests be aware of the rules!

I agree twoangels!  My appologies if I was snarky!

Also, I second the special rules for clothing from Missbliss.  Even certain parishes that aren’t extremely “traditional” have rules about clothing, covering shoulders sort of thing.

@ twoangels“Its also made me more senstive to what works in the Mass for participation and what doesn’t.  The more you try to make the Mass entertaining, the more you take away from the atmosmphere needed for prayer and contemplation.  We can’t respond to people’s bordom by entertaining them.  We have to help them to realize that bordom stems from a lack of internal participation.”

 

I agree that internal participation is important, and I’m glad participating in the traditional Latin Mass has made this easier for you. However, its good to keep in mind that these are not blanket solutions for everyone. For some of us, the responses in the more modern Mass are not “entertaining,” but are a pathway to deeper spiritual participation. I’ll agree that, in many places, we have lost a lot of reverence. But traditional Latin Mass isn’t a magic bullet to deeper participation- and the Mass in local regional languages (including the participation) can actually help some people with that a great deal. Personally, I think it’s great that the Church offers a variety of ways to participate in the Mass, so we can maximize the chance that someone will find something that is a good fit for them.
