Latin Mass Brief History

"The Traditional Latin Mass (1962 Missal) is a venerable Mass with a 1650 year heritage dating back to the reign of Pope Damasus in the 4th century.  The Latin language reverses the punishment of the Tower of Babel, giving the Catholic Church a true universal bond that transcends language barriers.  The orientation of the priest and faithful, hopefully facing East in anticipation of the Second Coming, toward God in the tabernacle highlights the principle act at the Holy Sacrifice; adoration of the Holy Trinity.  The rubrics dictate a greater fusion of mind, soul, and body to better communicate and reinforce the whole of Catholic doctrine."  Rev. Fr. Donald Kloster
