I was asked to celebrate the Mass in Latin for an international group of young people according to the ordinary form of the rite. We found in the sacristy the Missale Parvum where the text of the prayers of the Mass end only with the words “Per Dóminum”, “Qui vivis”, etc. Where can I find the rest of that conclusion?
It is no longer forbidden by Canon Law, but it is during Lent by the General
Instruction of the Roman Missal .
The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments gave an answer to the following question on November 7th, 2000:
Does the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments in the Institutio Generalis Missalis Romani Nos. 314-315, or elsewhere, intend that a separate chapel for the reservation of the Most Blessed Sacrament within parish churches is to be preferred to a prominent and central location within the main body of the church, thus visible to the faithful during the celebration of the Mass?
The Latin answer is: Negative, et ad mentem. This means they will give the reason behind this, i.e. the mens.
Mens: Within the norms specified by the law, it pertains to the diocesan Bishop in his capacity as moderator of the Sacred Liturgy in the particular Church entrusted to him, to exercise judgment regarding the most appropriate place for the reservation of the Most Blessed Sacrament, bearing foremost in mind the purpose encouraging and enabling the faithful to visit and adore the Most Blessed Sacrament.
The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments answered the two following questions on November 7th, 2000:
1. Is it the case that the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, by No. 43 of the Institutio Generalis Missalis Romani, intends to prohibit the faithfull from kneeling during any part of the Mass except during the Consecration, that is, to prohibit the faithful from kneeling after the Agnus Dei and following the reception oh the Holy Communion?
The answer is negative.
2. Does the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments intend by Nos. 160-162, 244, or elsewhere in the Institutio Generalis Missalis Romani, that the people may no longer genuflect or bow as a sign of reverence to the Blessed Sacrament immediately before they receive the Holy Communion?
The answer is negative.
Of course, there are several legitimated rites in the Catholic Church.
These are divided in two great families: the Western rites and the Eastern rites. The Roman Rite belongs to the first family: the Western rites, and is the most common one.
