“In a discussion with Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger recently, I asked His Eminence for his assessment of the future of the 1962 Missal as an approved liturgical book. He assured me that it was completely secure. For this reason, and because of the publishing event you see here, it is certain that the use of the 1962 Missale Romanum will increase dramatically in years to come. The remarkable increase in young priests ordained with the Pope’s approval to use this Missal gives great hope by itself. But the 1962 Missale Romanum, until now, was available to most of them only rarely, from used book dealers. The availability of a fresh supply of 1962 altar Missals changes the landscape utterly.
