This blog is offered as a forum within which events to promote and celebrate the Traditional Catholic Latin Liturgy can be organised in the North of England. The idea emerged during conversations at the 2010 Low Week Latin Mass Society training course at Ushaw College.

(Just in case anyone missed this news/story): 1962 Missale Romanum reprint (now a photo of the cover!)

Shamelessly lifted from Jon Sonnen's blog, here's a link (below) to an amazingly hi-resolution mega-zoom enabled image of the cover of the "new" 1962 altar missal as re-published by Libreria Editrice Vaticana on February 10th 2010. Just keep zoom-clicking the image. As far as I am aware this is the first cover photo "doing the rounds". The sheer quality of the binding appears to be there for all to see. Priced at €210 (£180-ish?). So, when in Rome...



  1. I shall try to keep you updated re Mass situation in Hexham & Newcastle.
    Please note Solemn High Mass on 29/6 for feast of SS Peter & Paul at SS Peter & Paul Church,Benton Lane, Longbenton, Newcastle upon Tyne NE12 8PB at 7pm
    Missa Cantata at Dilston Hall Chapel, near Corbridge, Northumberland at 7pm on Thursday 22/7. This is the ancestral home of the Derwentwater family 1 earl martyred for the Faith.

  2. Any chance of a Sunday morning Mass in Leeds, Hallam or Salford?

  3. I am sincerely interested in the title pages. Does it contain Quo Primum AND Summorum Pontificum?

    Does it refer to it as the Missal of Blessed John XXIII?

  4. The new printing is excellent; very clear and with the page turns in the right places. Venerabilini who know Ancora on the Via della Conciliazione will usually get a small discount on the purchase price.
