The purpose of this site is both to help those who are new to the Extraordinary Form and to provide English translations of the Mass texts that are easy to read on mobile devices at a time when many parishes are unable to handout copies of “the red book” or the propers. Here are a few links:
- What to expect at your first Extraordinary Form Mass
- Brief introduction including active participation, etc.
- Differences between Low, High and Solemn Masses
- Resources for learning more
Below are links to English translations for both the fixed parts of the Mass as well as for the changeable propers (“the readings”) for Masses this week:
July 31, Saturday, St. Ignatius of Loyola
August 2, Monday, St. Alphonsus Liguori
August 3, Tuesday, a) Feria of the 10th Sunday after Pentecost; or b) Finding of the Body of St. Stephen
August 4, Wednesday, St. Dominic
August 5, Thursday, a) Dedication of the Basilica of St. Mary Major; or b) Jesus Christ the High Priest
August 6, Friday, Transfiguration of the Lord
For Latin-English translations, we recommend using the iPieta app for phones, DivinumOfficium.com (which this site uses as source for the English translations) for computers, and Propria.org for printable propers.
