The 450th Anniversary of Quo Primum

Just a brief note that today is the 450th anniversary of the Missal of St Pius V; the bull Quo primum by which it was promulgated was issued on July 14th, 1570. Te Deum laudamus...

The frontispiece of a Roman Missal “restored by decree of the Most Sacred Council of Trent, and pubished by order of Pope Pius V”, printed at Cologne, Germany, in 1573. (Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, Res/4 Liturg. 432 m.)
