Questioning 1962

Those who are familiar with the traditional liturgy will know, to a greater or lesser degree, that there were many changes introduced to the Liturgy before 1962 and particularly during the course of the twentieth century. Particularly during the 1950s and in 1961, major excisions were made in the breviary, Holy Week was radically revised and the calendar saw many changes.

The flagship of the Saint Lawrence Press is the Ordo Recitandi, following the calendar and the Roman Missal of the late 1930s. There is now also a St Lawrence Press blog which is a goldmine for details of pre-conciliar revisions to the calendar.
