This complete edition of the Roman Ritual is in accord with the latest "Editio Typica," dated January 25, However, since that time a number of significant additions have been made and revisions put into effect by the Congregation of Sacred Rites; they have been published in "Acta Apostolicae Sedis" as well as in "Ephemerides Liturgicae.
Moreover, immediately before going to press we were able to incorporate the changes introduced by the Liturgy Commission's "Instruction" of September 26, , made public on October 16, , thus bringing the work fully up to date.

New Testament passages are from the Kleist-Lilly version. A musical supplement to this volume is available at The Bruce Publishing Company.
Music of a worthy nature and suitable idiom for English texts is provided therein wherever the "Editio Typica" calls for parts to be sung, or wherever else it is felt that singing would greatly enhance the sacred rites. Because the "Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy" These are meant merely as suggestions on which the celebrant may base whatever commentary he sees fit to give.
Provision is also made for the people's vocal participation so far as possible, again in accord with the "Constitution. So he is to many of his readers, and he need look for little leniency, except perhaps from those who themselves have set their hand to translating.

In preparing a new edition of the Roman Ritual, the Congregation of Sacred Rites decided to introduce a number of additions and revisions, in order to bring it in line with recent legislation, as well as to produce a more orderly arrangement of the whole subject matter. On the recommendation of the undersigned Cardinal Pro-Prefect of the Sacred Congregation of Rites, His Holiness in turn confirmed and approved this edition of the Roman Ritual, and decreed that it be the model to which all future editions of the Roman Ritual are to conform, anything to the contrary notwithstanding.
Called by divine munificence, and not through any personal merit, to occupy the See of the Apostles, we deem it our duty to watch with full earnestness over all that concerns the decorum of God's house. And such constant vigilance on our part prompts us to take suitable measures so that, as the Apostle admonishes, everything in divine worship may function decently and orderly. Particularly is this true in regard to the administration of the sacraments of the Church of God; here especially our office obliges us to provide that a religious observance be given those rites and ceremonies established by apostolic tradition and the decrees of the fathers.
Pope Pius V, our saintly predecessor, fully conscious of his obligation which is now ours, labored with pastoral indefatigability to publish first the Roman Breviary, then the Roman Missal--both having been worked out with much labor and zealous care--so that there might be, God willing, a uniform manner of chanting and praying the Church's liturgy.
He did this not only to restore careful observance of the sacred rites in celebrating the Holy Sacrifice and chanting the Divine Office, but also for the purpose of promoting the bond of Catholic unity in faith and in government, under the visible authority of the Roman Pontiff, the successor of St. He not only gave to the bishops and lesser prelates of the Church the carefully revised Pontifical; but he also made a systematic compilation of many other ceremonies wont to be used in cathedrals and lesser churches, embodied in the Ceremonial which he promulgated.
With all this accomplished there remained to be published, by authority of the Holy See, a volume of the Ritual which would contain the genuine and sacred rites of the Catholic Church, those which must be observed by shepherds of souls in the administration of the sacraments and in other ecclesiastical functions.
Amidst the numerous existing rituals it would rank as the official and authorized one, by whose standard the officiants could fulfill their priestly office unhesitatingly, and with uniformity and precision. This matter had been urged a long time ago. But since the work of the General Councils whose acts by God's help have been published both in the Greek and Latin tongues is at present hindered, we considered it our obligation to prosecute the business in right good earnest.
In order that the task proceed correctly and orderly as it should, we assigned it to certain of our venerable brethren among the cardinals, outstanding for their piety, learning, and sagacity.
Aided by the counsel of scholars and through comparison with ancient as well as other available rituals--in particular that erudite work of Julius Antonius of blessed memory, Cardinal with title of St. Severina, a man of singular piety, zeal, and learning--the commission of cardinals has succeeded in compiling a ritual of desired brevity, after mature deliberation and with the help of God. Now as we see lying before us this well-arranged assortment of received and approved rites of the Catholic Church.
Given at Rome at St. Mary Major, under the fisherman's seal, on June 17, , in the tenth year of Our Pontificate. In the fullness of time, when our heavenly Father was to exercise the most lavish act in His economy with mankind, He did so by means of a sacrament, the foremost sacrament: the incarnation with its extension throughout the ages in the Church, the mystical body of the Word made Flesh. You have not found any pleasure in burnt sacrifices, in sacrifices for sin.
See then, I said, I am coming to fulfill what is written of me, where the book lies unrolled; to do your will, O my God. Christ and His Church. In becoming man He "is that head whose body is the Church; it begins with Him"; the Church, a new creation, the sacrament in which we are redeemed.
Never before had God approached man in such full realism. This manifestation of the sole-begotten Son in creature form signified dramatically the limit to which the Uncreated would stoop, in order that He who is the Creator of man in the original state of grace would be likewise the renovator of man fallen from this estate.
Yet a little while, and the world sees me no longer; but you will see me, because I live, and you, too, shall live. On that day you will come to understand that I am in the Father, and you are in me, and I in you I am the vine, you are the branches But when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will conduct you through the whole range of truth.
He is to glorify me, for He will draw upon what is mine and announce it to you. Christ who is life came as the sacrament of the Word made Flesh, prolongs life in the sacrament of the Church, effects and sustains life in the members of the Church through her sacramental mysteries.
These are her most treasured possessions and her primary and normally indispensable means of grace. It is by the first of them, baptism, that the Church can solemnly declare to the soul dead in sin: "Awake, you that sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light. It is the beginning of our ontological union with the mystical body of the Savior. Yet another sacrament, the Eucharist, is required to intensify and complete this incorporation. Through the sacraments which flow from the side of Christ, God's plan of developing and completing the mystic Christ is carried out.
By uniting us with Christ, the head, the sacraments unite us with His other members in the Church, the society of the faithful. The body, after all, consists not of one organ but of many And you are Christ's body, organs of it depending upon each other. The Eucharist is par excellence the sacrament of fellowship, unity, charity. As sacrifice the eucharistic oblation of Christ, truly His very own renewal of Good Friday in sacramental manner, is also the sacrifice of the Church, with a priest as minister acting in the person of Him and in the person of the entire fellowship of the faithful.
Then as the communion of the body and blood of Christ, the holy sacrament of the altar, which culminates the bond of union and love between Jesus and the individual recipient, likewise extends the kiss of peace from member to member.
If no other consideration, then this very one along with its corollaries should go far toward demonstrating that the sacramental mysteries of Christ and His Church, viewed and used properly, avoid the stigma of routine or ritualism or external formalism or arbitrariness which the unknowing would at times hurl at them.
Although objective functions of religion, our wonderful sacraments indeed provide full play for man's subjective religious aspirations. They are the universal means of holiness, alike for the highest mystic and for the lowliest sinner. We acknowledge that God can and does come to a soul with His grace outside of their stream- -the Spirit breathes where He will. Yet ordinarily they are the main contact with and growth in Christ and His Church--they are necessary, they have stability, they work infallibly.
It is certainly made plain from the history of Christianity that the sacraments fare better or worse in respect to how men evaluate them at different times and among different cultures as well as individuals.
The simple of heart delight in them more readily than those of overrefined intellects; and this is predicated without implying that true intellectualism need in any way find them embarrassing.
The most brilliant of the Fathers and Scholastics have been their champions. The best endowed theologians have been responsible for their theological formularies. To Christians in the East they seem to be more awe- inspiring than to the brethren in the West; at least we find among the former less controversy and hairsplitting and rationalizing and less temptation to neglect them at times for less certain sources of piety.
The sacraments fared badly in the Protestant revolt: "How can a man be justified by an external ceremony without right movements of the heart? And if havoc was raised for the sacramental system by Protestant subjectivism and individualism, its death knell was tolled for those outside the Church by the former's stepchild, Rationalism.
For the latter the very notion of sacrament becomes laughable, since this system identifies "sacramentalism" with necromancy--logical enough, and completely in accord with its denial of God's grace and man's personal or inherited guilt. Modern civilization with its instability, vulgarity, intellectual confusion, subjectivism, and unbelief finds beyond itself the acceptance of God becoming immanent and operative in creature elements, words, and gestures.
Nevertheless, there are indications that a change of heart is occurring in the sects, who are showing evidence of discovering that what is natural Christ has made supernatural, as St. Chrysostom points out: "For if you had been incorporeal, He would have delivered to you the incorporeal gifts bare; but because the soul has been locked up in a body, He delivers to you the things that the mind perceives, in things sensible.
For although they are done on earth, yet nevertheless they are worthy of the heavens. For when our Lord Jesus Christ lies slain as a sacrifice , when the Spirit is with us, when He who sits on the right hand of the Father is here, when sons are made by the washing In fact, whenever we find an age deeply conscious of the doctrine of the mystical body, the sacrament of Christ and His Church, we notice a corresponding deepening of faith that in the sacramental mysteries we have Christ's incarnation and redemption made present again.
For all who believe in the Scriptures it is there to perceive that already in the Old Testament the foundations were laid for future faith in the sacraments of the Church. The ancient covenant had its own sacraments which not only preannounced ours, but had a certain efficacy, not in the sense that they caused grace, but rather that they conferred grace by reason of the faith in Christ which they expressed. There is one episode in particular which the Church with fine psychological insight borrows during Lent, in order to impress upon her candidates for baptism that henceforth their communion with God will be effected chiefly through her sacramental powers.
On Monday in the third week of Lent, she uses as the Epistle of Mass the passage from the Fourth Book of Kings which recounts Naaman's cure of leprosy through the waters of the Jordan. Now there had gone out robbers from Syria, and had led away captive out of the land of Israel a little maid, and she waited upon Naaman's wife. And she said to her mistress: 'I wish my master had been with the prophet that is in Samaria; he would certainly have healed him of the leprosy which he has.
So Naaman came with his horses and chariots, and stood at the door of the house of Eliseus; and Eliseus sent a messenger to him, saying: 'Go, and wash seven times in the Jordan, and your flesh shall recover health, and you shall be clean.
Naaman was angry, and as he turned and was going away with indignation, his servants came to him and said to him: 'Father, if the prophet had bid you to do some great thing, surely you would have done it; how much rather what he now said to you: "Wash, and you shall be clean"?
Naaman, when he believed in Eliseus a type of Christ and consented to wash in the waters of the Jordan the sacramental signs which both signify and effect , had his flesh restored purification and grace like the flesh of a little child sonship of divine adoption.
During His public life our Lord, before instituting the sacraments, took pains to secure our faith in them by frequently making use of homely signs as He went about healing the people of their infirmities. We believe that these miracles had not only an immediate purpose of dispensing mercy to those He found afflicted with bodily and spiritual ailments, or to confirm His divine nature and mission in the sight of onlookers, but also served to preannounce that in the sacraments He would institute, "virtue would go out from Him and heal all.
The fathers never tire of proclaiming that His historical acts are performed not only for the moment, but that they are done "in mysterio"; that whenever His deeds are set before us in the Gospel for our contact by faith, or in the liturgy for our contact by sacrament, the grace which they one time merited is now produced within us. And taking him aside from the crowd He put His fingers into the man's ears, and spitting, He touched his tongue. And looking up to heaven, He sighed and said to him: 'Ephpheta,' that is, 'Be opened.
Another time when ten lepers besought Jesus to have mercy on their condition, He commanded them to present themselves to the priests: "and as they went they were made clean.
A sacrament, or a mystery, as the Greek fathers call it, is a visible thing which contains an invisible divine power and action, the inward content being really connected with and partially signified by the outward words, elements, and their application, the full essence remaining, nonetheless, concealed, mysterious, and transcendent to human comprehension.
