Traditional Mass Jottings: How to Follow the Mass in the Extraordinary Form

You are a newcomer, you might wonder how to follow the Mass. In the old days, the churches had missals in every pew. Now at the extraordinary form Masses, they sometimes have booklets, but they aren't nearly as helpful.

I would recommend that people buy the Daily Roman missal of 1962. I bought St. Joseph's and another missal on Ebay, but was disappointed that they didn't have the Latin and English together. Ebay is a good place to buy the missals.

Also, women usually wear veils or hats at the traditional Masses. At our chapel, they put a basket of veils out in the vestible for loan. You can also buy veils on Ebay.
