One of the most obvious differences between the Old Rite of Mass and the Novus Ordo is the direction in which the priest faces.
Worship ad orientem, or facing East, is an ancient practice going back to the earliest centuries of the Church. Criticised by advocates of the New Mass as 'the priest turning his back to the people', it is nothing of the sort. Quite the reverse, in fact, it unites priest and people in a deep and spiritual way unheard of in most Novus Ordo celebrations.
Here Dr Joseph Shaw explains the ancient roots of Mass facing East, its theological and spiritual symbolism, and why arguments claiming that Mass facing the people was the practice in the early Church are totally spurious.

On 29th March 2014, the Latin Mass Society held their annual pilgrimage to the city of York, where around 50 men and women gave their lives for the Catholic Faith, and in whose honour the event is held each year. Best known of these is St Margaret Clitherow, one of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales (canonised in 1970) and co-patroness of the Latin Mass Society.
High Mass in the Extraordinary Form in St Wilfrid's Catholic Church in the centre of York, was followed by a procession through the busy streets of the city, passing the Shrine of St Margaret in the narrow medieval street called the Shambles and over Ouse Bridge where the saint was martyred.

One of the most telling differences between the Traditional Latin Mass and most celebrations of the Novus Ordo is the manner in which the congregation receives Holy Communion.
In the Traditional Mass, Communion is received on the tongue and kneeling; in the Novus Ordo in the hand and standing.
Many clergy and laity are implacably opposed to the traditional practice, but, as LMS Chairman Dr Joseph Shaw explains here, the traditional practices of Communion on the tongue and kneeling go back many centuries and were adopted for very sound theological and practical reasons.
For a more in-depth treatment of this subject you can read the FIUV Position Paper on The Manner of Receiving Communion: www.lms.org.uk/…/fiuv_pp3_commun…

O Ton meines U40 Pfarrers (Doktor der Dogmatik bei prof müller-jetzt glaubenspräfekt!) bei einer Probe für Firmung in der kirche vor Ministranten,Mesnern und Diakon:
"du frühstückst dann die leute hier ab."
bei Nennung der Bezeichnung:ordentlicher kommunionempfang-gelächter seitens von ihm.
ich hatte dennoch den mut ihm vor allen leuten in der kirche lautstark zu widersprechen:ein Sakrament wird gespendet und nicht verteilt!beim begriff abfrühstücken habe ich einfach nur noch mein entsetzen geäußert.sogar ein ungebildeter junger Ministrant stimmte mir zu!
dann wundert man sich dass die Firmlinge bei ihrer eigenen firmung nicht gewusst haben wie sie die Kommunion empfangen sollen?
dann wundert man sich dass eine erwachsene frau mit dem leib christi sich in die bank setzt wenn der Ministrant nicht eingegriffen hätte und sie dazu gebracht hätte den leib christi rechtzeitig zu konsumieren!
dann wird einem mann der keinerlei Bereitschaft zum kommunionempfang zeigt-hängende Hände …More

Silence is one of the most characteristic aspects of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite that marks it apart from the Novus Ordo. Many of the prayers said by the priest are done so either silently or inaudibly. There are very good reasons for silence in the traditional liturgy; a practice that dates back centuries to the early Church. In this short video, Dr Joseph Shaw explains the reasons for what many mass-goers regard as one of the most attractive and uplifting aspects of the Traditional Latin Mass.

The holy season of Septuagesima is an ancient one. It is still celebrated in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, although it was abolished in the Novus Ordo Calendar of 1970. This short documentary outlines Septuagesima's purpose and its long historical lineage. It also examines the reasons given for its abolition in the Ordinary Form and the liturgical loss that this represents to the faithful.

The Latin Mass Society's fourth annual walking pilgrimage to Walsingham took place in August 2013. Around 90 people took part in the three-day, 55-mile walk to the ancient English Marian shrine of Walsingham. There was Solemn Mass in the Extraordinary Form each day, as well as traditional Catholic devotions along the way. There was also the chance to strike up new friendships and acquaintances.

Around Easter each year, the Gregorian Chant Network organises a residential weekend course for singers of all levels of experience. Gregorian Chant requires specialised training and this is provided by tutors with a wealth of teaching experience in this most beautiful of musical forms.
Students on the course mainly sing with, or are planning to sing with, parish choirs and scholas who use Gregorian Chant on a regular basis, most commonly with the Traditional Latin Mass.
The Chant course runs side-by-side with the St Catherine's Trust Family Retreat (see part one of this film) and singers provide the music for the liturgy on the retreat.
The film features interviews with Dr Joseph Shaw of the Latin Mass Societ,y who is the main organiser, and with one of the course tutors.

Every Easter, the St Catherine's Trust holds a weekend family retreat for parents and their children, but also for anyone else who wishes to join us, in a very friendly and supportive atmosphere. All liturgy is in the Extraordinary Form. There are spiritual talks and other activities for grown-ups, and separate events for children of all ages. There is also ample opportunity for socialising with Catholics from around the country who either already follow the Traditional Latin Mass, or who are interested in finding out more.
