Connection of liturgy and doctrine is very clearly shown here.
Any other make overs like this in the traditional missal?BTW: unrelated, but we had a Sequence for St. Augustine here in Portugal. Is anyone familiar with it?
In 1942 a new common office and Mass for popes was published. Previously, popes used the common of bishops if they didn't have their own propers.
Well there was the replacement of St. Joseph Patron of the Universal Church with Joseph the Worker ("Joe the Communist" in some circles).
I see that St. Joachim is listed as "Dominica infra Octavam Assumptionis". Is this an actual size MR from pre-1911 or one of those "shrunken" altar missals functioning as hand Missals from the same era?
No "shrunken" Missal here. My entire hand might cover the text on the first page above, but otherwise this book is enormous. I might do a post on this book actually, as it is an interesting artifact in liturgical history. It was printed in 1912, although with a 1913 copyright, and with an order to conform to the bull Divino Afflatu in the front after the usual Quo Primum etc. It has a few changes made by Pius X's commission, such as moving the feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist to the fourth Sunday after Pentecost, a change they undid the next year! Otherwise some of the feasts are still in their lollipop (Xth Sunday after Whatever) days. It has the old Mass of the Sacred Heart (new one is much better in my opinion), the un-reformed Holy Week of course, some octave day Masses that we often forget (St. Lawrence, Ss. Peter & Paul), some interesting Masses for diverse locations (including "Blessed" Joan of Arc for France), and other details that evade me right now. A Missal in full conformity with Divino Afflatu was only issue in 1920 by Pope Benedict XV.
Even after Divino afflatu a Mass of St. Joachim may be celebrated on its former day, i.e. Sunday within the Octave of the Assumption.
