Liturgical Tutorial

The Canons Regular of St John Cantius have the beginnings of an on-line tutorial here for the "extraordinary" usage of the Roman Rite, i.e., the traditional Roman Rite. Eventually it should have full instructions for the proper celebration of the classical Latin Mass for everyone from the celebrans to the veriest candle-bearer. I haven't actually downloaded it myself to check, but there appears to be a complete Missale Romanum in pdf format that can be downloaded. [ADDENDUM: Someone who has downloaded it, informs that it is not the 1962 Missal but two or three editions earlier. A not insurmountable obstacle with a good Ordo.]

It's a useful and beautifully done site now. It should be well-nigh indispensable when it's finished.
