Proper Prayers of the Traditional Latin Mass

This list contains many of the major festal, common and votive Masses from the Traditional (Tridentine) Missal.

Our library of Proper Prayers is still growing, so not all feasts on the list below have active links.

The Season of Advent

  • 1st Sunday of Advent - The First Sunday of Advent, the fourth Sunday before Christmas, is the first day of the Liturgical Year. Masses of this season are celebrated in violet vestments. While Advent is a penitential season and the Gloria in Excelsis is omitted, the joyous Alleluia is retained after the Gradual.
  • 2nd Sunday of Advent
  • 3rd Sunday of Advent - This Sunday is known as Gaudete Sunday after the first word of the Latin Introit. In common with Mid-Lent Sunday, the priest may celebrate the Masses in rose-coloured vestments. Rose is a paler kind of violet and expresses some relaxation in the penitential season of Advent.
  • Ember Wednesday of Advent - The Ember days have been instituted by the Church to thank God for blessings obtained during the year and to implore further graces for the new season. Ember Days are also a penitential preparation for those who are about to be ordained. Of the four sets of Ember Days during the year, those of Advent occur after the Third Sunday of Advent.
  • Ember Friday of Advent
  • Ember Saturday of Advent
  • 4th Sunday of Advent
  • Vigil of Christmas [24 Dec]

The Season of Christmas

  • Christmas Day [25 Dec]
  • Sunday in Octave of Christmas
  • Octave Day of Christmas (The Circumcision) [01 Jan]
  • The Holy Name of Jesus - This Feast is kept on the First Sunday of the year; but if this Sunday falls on 1st, 6th or 7th January, the feast is kept on 2nd January. First celebrated by the Franciscans in the 16th Century, Pope Innocent XIII added this solemnity to the universal calendar in 1721.
  • The Epiphany [06 Jan] - The Feast of the Epiphany was kept in the East from the third century and its observance spread to the West towards the end of the fourth. The word 'Epiphany' means 'manifestation' and, like Christmas, represents the mystery of God appearing in visible form.

  • Our Lady of Mount Carmel [16 Jul] - On this day are commemorated the favours granted to the Brothers of our Lady of Mount Carmel, successors to those early Christians who built a chapel in her honour on Mount Carmel. The institution and habit of the Carmelite Order as now known are due to our Lady's instructions first to Saint Simon Stock and later to Pope Honorius III. She promised special protection in life and after death to all who adopted the Tertiary's rule and wore her habit.

  • Vigil of The Assumption [14 Aug]
  • The Assumption [15 Aug] - Mary was cared for by Saint John for twelve years after our Lord's Resurrection. Her life was spent in helping the Apostles and in praying for the conversion of the world. On the third day after Mary's death, when the Apostles gathered around her tomb, they found it empty. The sacred body had been carried up to the celestial paradise. Jesus Himself came to conduct her thither; the whole court of heaven came to welcome with songs of triumph the Mother of the Divine Word.
  • St Joachim [16 Aug]
  • St John Eudes [19 Aug] - Saint John Eudes, born in Normandy, was educated by the Jesuits. Ordained priest, he founded the Congregation of the Priests of Jesus and Mary, called Eudists, and the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity. As preacher, writer, and founder he promoted public devotion to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. He died in 1680.
  • Immaculate Heart of Mary [22 Aug] - Mary began her journey along the road to perfection at a height to which other Saints arrived only at the end of a long life of saintliness. In all other children of Adam original sin prevented the divine generosity from having a free course. But Mary was created immaculate, and therefore the grace of God streamed into her soul without check of hindrance. Her sinlessness, her heavenly purity, directed every action, every movement to God. Her Heart was the pattern and model of all virtues, of all purity. Saints Timotheus, Hippolytus, and Sumphorian, although commemorated together, suffered in different persecutions: Timotheus under Maximian, Bishop Hippolytus under Alexander and the youth Symphorian under Aurelian.
