Latin Mass Video

Here is an amazing video of a Latin Mass filmed in 1941 on Easter Sunday. It was filmed at Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Chicago. The celebrant is of the Servite order hence the cowls and white cassocks. It is narrated by Servant of God Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.

Thank you. I'll be able to watch it tomorrow and it will give me an idea of the Latin Mass.

Hi Moneybags.

I don't really understand what the rites of the mass are. I have only attented one type of Mass in my fourteen years of life and didn't even know there were different rights until I started reading your blog about a year ago. Is there any good website or book which explains the rites?

This website helped me understand what the eastern-rite(which I watched on Ewtn today) is.

As you have said, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the same, no matter how it is said. Right?

Thank you and God Bless you and yours. You are in my prayers.

There are about 30 rites, but the Sacrifice of the Mass is the same in each one. There are just differences in how the Mass is celebrated.

This website helped me when I was learning about the rites:
