Latin Names for Sundays in the Roman Rite
edit_button

Unfortunately in the past fifty years Catholics have all but forgotten that each Sunday of the Liturgical Year has a special name, taken from the first words of the Introit from the Proper Prayers for the Mass that day.

For your edification, I present the Latin names for these Sundays.  Some of these names (e.g. Laetare Sunday) are more common than others.  You may find the proper prayers on my separate page dedicated to the 1962 Mass Propers by clicking here.

Note: The Class distinction listed is from the 1962 Rubrics.
