Did you know?
There are two liturgical Calendars in use by the Roman Catholic Church. This weekend the Sunday, August 2 Mass is the Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time according to the Ordinary Form Mass calendar and the Tenth Sunday after Pentecost according to the Traditional Latin Mass calendar.
Those at the Ordinary Form Mass will have readings from Exodus 16:2-4, 12-15; Ephesians 4:17,20-24; and John 6:24-35. Those at the Extraordinary Form Mass will read I Corinthians 12:2-11 and Luke 18:9-14.
Although this can be confusing and there is not space available today for an explanation, it gives one very clear indication that the “Latin Mass” is not simply the “ordinary Mass” said in Latin! Come and experience it for yourself!
