This blog contains regular postings relating to the Traditional Latin Liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church. It includes regular commentary on the saints days and the liturgical cycle, with brief background and extracts from the liturgy both in Latin and English. Much of the material has been extracted from the 'St Andrew's Daily Missal', Dom Gueranger's 'Liturgical Year', or similar sources.

Per Ipsum - Daily Traditional Readings by email

Somehow I've been unaware 'till this morning of the website "Per Ipsum" where one can subscribe to get the daily mass readings sent by email, in either French or English, according to the 1962 calendar.

This provides a similar service to the Novus Ordo based "Daily Gospel Online". Also worth being aware of is which provides links not only to Per Ipsum and DGO, but to similar services for the Byzantine and other rites of the Church.

The traditional missal only uses a fairly small selection of readings from the Holy Scriptures, unlike the Novus Ordo which tries to do everything (except the parts which are expurgated). So it makes sense for those of us who are Traditionalist to familiarize ourselves, thoroughly, with at least those parts of the Bible that have been selected for the Missal. Having them delivered daily to our inbox is one way of helping with this.

It would be nice to have also a daily Patristic reading, relevant to the feast, perhaps picked from the Breviary. The Breviary readings can be found at or
