Iveagle sculp: Published by P. Keuting.Brown XKinting, 38, Duke Street, Grosvenor Square.
All the Scriptural parts which in the Original Latine are
taken from the Vúlgutt, hare, in this Edition been quithfully compared with, and made literally conformable to the received and upprured l'ersion of the Holy Scrip. tures, as revised and edited by the Right Rev. and Ven. Dr. Richard Challoner, of learned and pious memory.
E Prayers and portions of Holy Scripture, of I which the Mass, or Liturgy of the Catholic Churchi, is composed, are in part unalterably the same, and partly different every day : those that are fixed and invari. able, are contained in what is called the ORDINARY OF THE MAss, from pages xv. to xlviii. inclusively; and the clsangeable or proper parts. (viz. the INTROITS, COLLECTS, EPISTLES avd LESSONS, GRADUALS and TRACTS, Gospels, OFFERIORIES, SECRETS, COM. MONIONS and POSTCOMMUNIONS) form the subsequent contents of the book. But as the PREFACEs are not so frequently subject to change, they follow each other in regular succession in the Ordinary.
The Ecclesiastical Year, with respect to the Sundays and Moveable Feasts, cominences with the FIRST SUN. DAY of Auvent, and closes on the LAST SUNDAY atter Pentecosr; and with regard to the Festivals of the Saints, from the Feast of St. ANDREW, the 30th of November, to the Eve of the same Festival the year foilowing, inclusively.
In order therefore to find out the PROPER MASS of the day, look for that day of the month in the Calendar, opposite to which may be seen a reference to the page wlierein it is contained; and if a Double should fall on · Sunday, then the Mass of the Double is said instead of the Mass of the Sunday, except it be a Sunday of thic SIRST CLASS, viz. the first Sunday of AuVENT or LENT, PASSIUN, PALM, EASTER, Whit, and TRINITY SUN. DAYS : and the Sunda ys of the SECOND CLASS, which cannot be superseded, except by Doubles of the FIRST CLASS, are the ii. iii, and iv. of ADVENT, SEPTUAGESIMA, SEXAGESIMA, and QUINQUAGESIMA, as also the ji, iji. and iv. of LENT. It must however be remarked. that the Gospels for Sundays thus superseded by Doubles are never omitted, but always recited (instead of St. Join's GOSPEL) at the END OF MASS; and also that a Commemoration of the Sunday, by its proper Code LECT, SECRET, and PostCOMMUNION, is always made immediately after the Collect, &c. of the Festival.
But as it sometimes happens that a Double is transferred to a future vacant day, on account of the Octave of some festival of higher rank intervening, then the difficulty of finding out such transferred festival, may be easily removed by consulting the Laity's Directory, published annually, as a guide to the morning, as well as the evening service of the chureh."
As references are frequently made to the Common of Saints, commencing at p. 459, to the Proper of Saints, beginning with p. 521, and continuing in regular progression to the end of the Ecclesiastical Year; the reader will find the Masses thus referred to, designated by numerical letters, fiom No. I. to XXI. inclusively: Be it therefore observed, that on whatever day of the month these numerical references appear in the Calendar, or General Index, it denotes that the Mass thereof (having no proper parts assigned to it) is taken entirely from the Common Mass referred to : but should any exceptions occur, they are stated in a parenthesis.
ommemorations are made by the addition of a COLLECT, SECRET and PosTCOMMUNION, to those that are proper to the feast of the day. When therefore the word COLLECT, with an &c. annexed thereto, ap. pears in the Rubrics, the &c. denotes that its proper se cret and Postcommunion are also comprehended.
