Documents and Readings on the
Traditional Latin Mass

From the Council of Trent to Benedict
XVI's       Motu Proprio

A new generation of Catholics is discovering
the beauty, reverence, appropriateness, and
efficacy of the Tridentine Mass. The
Traditional Latin Mass, as the saying goes, is
"the Mass the martyrs died for." It is also the
Mass the faithful lived for and which gave life
to them and to the Church itself.
This small volume is designed to humbly
guide you in an appreciation of the Traditional
Latin Mass' beauties, coherence, logic,
aesthetics, glories, and graces.

  • The Council of Trent
  • Pope St. Pius V
  • Pope St. Pius X
  • Pope Pius XI
  • Pope Pius XII
  • Pope St. John XXIII
