Mass Intentions

New Procedures for Masses with Individual Intentions and Masses for “Community Intentions”

Why New Procedures? We have been blessed at OLG with many parishioners who wish to participate in the Church’s tradition of offering Masses for particular intentions.  Indeed, we receive far more requests for Mass intentions than there are Masses here at OLG, which has resulted in frustration for many who have not been able to have as many Masses offered for their intentions as they would like.  The Congregation for the Clergy at the Vatican has offered a remedy to this situation, allowing that in limited circumstances, up to two Masses per week can be offered in a parish for multiple intentions (Congregation for the Clergy, Mos iugiter (1991)).

The New Roman Missal

The Mass has changed again?! Yes, as has happened throughout the Church’s history.  Already in New Testament times, St. Paul instructed the Christians in Corinth to change the way they were celebrating the Eucharist (1 Cor. 11:17-33).  The language and prayers used in the Mass have developed and changed over time.  During the first 1,500 years of the Church’s history, books and written collections of prayers used in the Mass developed in different cities and regions, including Rome.  The collection of Mass prayers used in Rome (what would become the Roman Missal) was often used in other cities and regions, but it also sometimes worked the other way:  Mass prayers developed in other cities and regions would make their way to Rome and be incorporated in the Mass there.  Following the Council of Trent, during the time of the Reformation, a new Roman Missal was published in 1570.  That Roman Missal eventually came to be used by most of the Church in the West as the norm for celebrating the Eucharist.  In modern times, we are most familiar with the changes in the Mass prayers in the late 1960s and early 1970s, following the Second Vatican Council.  At that time, a new Roman Missal was developed and published, and the Latin edition of the Roman Missal – serving as sort of a “master version” – was translated into English, Spanish and the other languages spoken in the Church.  That English translation, with minor changes, is what we have continued to use up to the present time.
