Clarification on the Celebration of the "Tridentine" Mass (Prot. 0)
January 31, 1997

Author:
Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei"

In recent times it has been affirmed that the allowances given for the celebration of the Tridentine Mass have been granted with the provision that only those who were familiar with the preceding forms of the Roman Liturgy would be allowed to benefit from those concessions.

During my time as President of the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei" such limitation was never mentioned by the authorities involved. In this regard it should be mentioned that the Commission has used the faculty of erecting religious institutes which would benefit from the use the Roman Missal of 1962 and the other liturgical books in force at that time. Evidently it was understood that young recruits would be admitted to such communities and would benefit from all the concessions made to them. Hence one cannot speak of an age limit.

Cardinal Augustin Mayer, President
