Latin missal for Requiem Masses [“Missae defunctorum”] with the rubrics from 1962, printed on fine ivory-colored paper, very clearly set in a comfortable font size. The three ribbon bookmarks made of black satin are set in leather at both ends. The grip tabs are also made of leather and the entire book with gold edging, measuring approx. 9 x 12 inches is bound in black cowhide with gold-colored embossing on the front and back.
Corresponding canon tables are part of the missal for the dead, as some prayers are a little different than in the ordinary holy mass. That is why we include a 3-piece set of canon tables with every missal for the dead and everything together in a protective storage box.
The “ordo absolutionis in exsequiis” is printed in full in both versions and with notes.
Building Something Beautiful For God –
To Last A Thousand Years
Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey is a Benedictine community belonging to the Solesmes Congregation and, like other monasteries of the Solesmes Congregation, is to be counted among the institutes entirely ordered towards contemplation. It was founded in 1999 from the Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault in France and is located in the Diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Clear Creek became an abbey in 2010 and counts 55 monks, who devote themselves to God alone in the hidden life, in silence and solitude, in constant prayer and willing penance.
After twenty years of existence, we are happy, by the grace of God, to have completed two large buildings and a sizable portion of our abbatial church. We started building the “Chapter House” to accommodate the growing number of monks and provide a Sacristy, Infirmary, classrooms and the Chapter itself. Please help us continue this arduous, but important work for the glory of God.
