Hoc in situ interretiali ordinantur responsiones, explanationes, et decreta ex « Notitiae » aliisque interdum fontibus (ut AAS) desumpta, quae facilius aliis locis minime inveniuntur. Finis est praestare textum originalem, versionem anglicam, et exemplar PDF paginarum pertinentium ex « Notitiae » vel alio fonte. Presens igitur labor opusculum « Ordo Missae locis correspondentibus illustratus » aliquatenus extendit. Est enim labor imperfectus quem, cum operae mihi est, suscipio. Denique Reverendo domino Danieli Gill, domino Radosław Gosiewski, et domino Abram Córdova y Muenzberg, qui nonnullas ex responsionibus transcripserunt, gratias refero, item etiam domino Ioanni Oliveire dominaeque Cristae Mootz, qui in linguam anglicam responsiones quasdam verteri adiuvaverunt. Exemplaria PDF exstant etiam textuum nondum transcriptorum. This website organizes responses, explanations, and decrees from Notitiae and sometimes from other sources (such as AAS) that are not readily available in other places. The goal is to provide the original text, an English translation, and a PDF scan of the relevant pages from Notitiae or other source. In some ways, the project is a further development of my Cross-Referenced Ordo Missae. This is an ongoing prject which I work on in my spare time. I am also grateful for the help of Rev. Daniel Gill, Mr. Radosław Gosiewski, and Mr. Abram Córdova y Muenzberg in transcribing some of these responses and also to Mr. Johan Oliveire and Miss Crista Mootz for helping to translate certain responses into English. PDFs are available even for texts that have not yet been transcribed.

1. Utrum Missa « in nocte Nativitatis » celebrari possit vespere vigiliae eiusdem sollemnitatis.

℟. Missa « in nocte Nativitatis » celebranda est ad mediam circiter noctem, ut veritas temporis servetur. Ad Missam vero, quae ad satisfaciendum praecepto vespere vigiliae anticipatur, adhibendum erit formularium Missae in vigilia, prout a rubrica Missalis indicatur (p. 153: « Haec Missa adhibeatur vespere diei 24 decembris sive ante sive post I Vesperas Nativitatis »).

1. Whether the Mass « on Christmas night » can be celebrated on the evening of the vigil of the same solemnity.

℟. The Mass « on Christmas night » is to be celebrated around midnight to preserve the true significance of the time. At the Mass, however, which is anticipated on the evening of the vigil in order to satisfy the precept, the formulary for the vigil Mass will be used as is indicated by the rubric of the Missal (p. 153: « This Mass should be used on the evening of December 24, whether before or after I Vespers of Christmas »).
