Reprint of Ritus Servandus by Preserving Christian Publications

Preserving Christian Publications has been working on various reprints in relation to the usus antiquior, and their most recent one is as follows:

RITUS SERVANDUS (Rite to Be Observed in the Celebration of Mass)

Translated by
Rev. Dennis M. Duvelius

This handy booklet features the first English translation made of the Latin text of the Ritus Servandus in Celebratione Missae section of the Missale Romanum (the altar missal).

This booklet is a companion to our other title, The Rubrics of the Roman Breviary and Missal (containing a translation of the Rubricae Generales sections in the missal and breviary).

The Ritus Servandus section of the Roman Missal contains an outline of the rubrics for the celebrant at Low Mass and sung Masses (missa cantata), as well as for Solemn High Mass for the celebrant, deacon, subdeacon and some points about the inferior ministers (servers). Even rubrics related to Mass offered pontifically and in the presence of a prelate are included.

The Ritus Servandus booklet takes the reader from the initial preparations of Mass through its various parts, and includes two appendixes:

* on the vesting prayers of the celebrant,
* and from Rituale Romanum on the "The Rite of Blessing and Sprinkling Holy Water on Sundays".

60 pages, 4¾" x 7½", red classic laid linen cover, softcover, #55668. $14.00
