Roman Missal

   

Order of Mass Without a Congregation

The Roman Missal gives a second Order of Mass besides the normal one with a congregation.

It was called "The Order of Mass Without a Congregation" in the translation of the 1975 Roman Missal. Its Latin name was "Ordo Missae Sine Populo". But the 2002 Roman Missal has the title "Ordo Missae Cuius Unus Tantum Minister Participat".

I will compare the 1975 text (from The Sacramentary, Catholic Book Publishing Co, New York, 1985, page 1074) with the 2002 Roman Missal, page 665.

I have done a paragraph by paragraph comparison. When quoting Roman Missal text, the bold text is black and the normal text is red.

With the Latin text I have not typed it exactly as it appears in the Roman Missal. For example, "ae" should be one character.

1. The first sentence is replaced. The 1975 text was:
"Sacerdos, facta cum ministro debita reverentia, signat se, dicens: In nomine Patris ...". This has been replaced with: "Sacerdos ad altare cum ministro accedit et, facta cum eo profunda inclinatione, osculo altare veneratur et sedem petit. Tunc minister vel ipse sacerdos recitat antiphonam ad introitum. Deinde sacerdos et minister, stantes, signant se signo crucis, dum sacerdos, versus ad ministrum, dicit: In nomine Patris ...".

2. Changes end: from "in Appendice inveniuntur, p. 1077." to "Ordine Missae (pp. 503-504) inveniuntur."

3. Changes "faciunt confessionem:" to "formulam confessionis generalis perficiunt:". A sentence is added at the end: "Adhiberi possunt etiam aliae formulae actus paenitentialis, quae in Ordine Missae (pp. 506-508) inveniuntur."

4. The 1975 instructions here have been removed. They were: "Tunc sacerdos ascendit ad altare, illud veneratur osculo, et accedit ad missale in sinistro latere altaris collocato, et legit antiphonam ad introitum." So a change has been made to move this to before the sign of the cross.
