The Latin Mass
The Latin Mass often refers to the Tridentine Mass, which is the Roman Rite liturgy of the Mass that is conducted and celebrated in Latin and based upon the Roman Missal, published from 1570 to 1962. The Roman Missal, which is the foundation for translations into English and other languages, is based on the Latin.
The official text of the original Latin is still used in the celebration of mass in the Sunday schedule in many Roman Catholic Churches, and this classic usage is what is often meant by the term “Latin Mass.”
