Vatican to issue new document on Latin Mass

The Vatican has announced that it will publish on Friday a new papal document to clarify Pope Benedict XVI’s 2007 permission to expand the use of the pre-Vatican II form of Mass, commonly called the Tridentine Mass, which is celebrated entirely in the Latin language. Since the pope’s intent on the matter seems to have been interpreted in many different ways in many different places, the new document, entitled “Universae Ecclesiae” (of the Universal Church) is expected to give definitive rules and guidelines for the celebration of the Latin Mass in order to clarify any misconceptions about the pope’s intentions in the matter.
