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.

N.B. In « Notitiae » 1 (1965) et 2 (1966), supra responsa, invenitur monitio: Solutio quae proponitur nullam induit vestem officialem. Solummodo habet valorem orientativum: solutiones enim ex officio publici iuris fient, si casus fert, a competenti Auctoritate in « Acta Apostolicae Sedis ». N.B. In Notitiae 1 (1965) and 2 (1966), this notice appears above the responses: The solution which is proposed takes on no official character. It has only an orientative force; solutions will be published officially, if the case warrants, by the competent Authority in « Acta Apostolicae Sedis ».

5. Ante biblicas lectiones, interdum presbyteri vel lectores laici proclamant subtitulos pericopae vel etiam rubricam: Prima lectio, altera lectio, etc. Fas est hanc consuetudinem sequi?

Resp.

Patet quod non. Sicut omnes rubricae, tituli prima lectio, secunda lectio sunt indicationes in commodum legentis. Circa subtitulos, qui constant, vel ex sententia e textu decerpta, vel ex compendio ipsius lectionis, sunt pariter indicationes utiles ad delectum peragendum inter diversos textus, praesertim in Communibus. Unicus titulus proferendus, ille est quo liber biblicus vel, si casus fert, eius auctor enuntiatur. Exempli gratia: Lectio Epistolae secundae beati Pauli apostoli ad Timotheum ... Lectio sancti Evangelii secundum Marcum.

5. Before the biblical readings, sometimes the priests or lay lectors proclaim the subtitles of the pericope or even the rubric: the first reading, the second reading, etc. Is it right to follow this custom?

Resp.

Obviously not. Like all rubrics, the titles the first reading and the second reading are indications to help the reader. Regarding the subtitles which consist either of a sentence excerpted from the text or from the gist of the reading itself, they are likewise useful indications for selecting a preference among diverse texts, especially in the Commons. Only one title is to be pronounced, that is the one in which the biblical book or, if the case warrants, its author is announced. For example: A reading from the second Letter of blessed Paul the apostle to Timothy ... A reading from the holy Gospel according to Mark.
