Sancta Missa: Online Tutorial on the Extraordinary Form of the Mass (Missale Romanum 1962)

I was looking for online resources on how to be an altar server for the Traditional Latin Mass.  And I stumbled on this site: Sancta Missa (  It has all the resources that I need, not only for would-be altar servers like me, but also for priests as well.  Here is a list of resources:

  1. Online Tutorial for Priests
  2. Rubrics of the Missal Romanum 1962
  3. Learning to Serve at the Altar
  4. Spirituality of the Tridentine Mass
  5. Liturgical Books and Resources
  6. Sacred Music of the Liturgy
  7. From Sacristy to Altar
  8. The Liturgical Year

There are also two videos:

  1. VIDEO of Solemn Pontifical High Mass celebrated by His Excellency, the Most Rev. Joseph N. Perry at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama is available for viewing with the accompanying latin text. This Mass was televised on EWTN on July 1st, 2009.
  2. Online Liber Usualis – PDFTHE book of chant for the Extraordinary Form! Sancta Missa features a downloadable Liber Usualis. This contains all the Gregorian Chant notation for the entire year for the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite

The website is maintained by the Canons Regular of Saint John Cantius:

In a broader sense, the mission of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius is to help Catholics rediscover a profound sense of the sacred through solemn liturgies, devotions, sacred art and sacred music, as well as instruction in Church heritage, catechesis and Catholic culture in the context of parish ministry. Because the Eucharistic Sacrifice “is the summit and the source of all Christian worship and life,” (Code of Canon Law, Canon 897) members of the Canons Regular order their own lives, as well as their pastoral work, above all to the Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours and the sacraments—the primary sources of life and grace within the Church. The sacrament of Penance plays an especially prominent role in the pastoral ministry of the Canons as a rich source of grace, particularly for those approaching the Eucharist (from the Constitutions of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius).
