The Ritus Servandus section of the Roman Missal contains an outline of the rubrics for the celebrant at Low Mass and sung Masses (missa cantata), as well as for Solemn High Mass for the celebrant, deacon, subdeacon and some points about the inferior ministers (servers). Even rubrics related to Mass offered pontifically and in the presence of a prelate are included.
The Ritus Servandus booklet takes the reader from the initial preparations of Mass through its various parts, and includes two appendixes:
on the vesting prayers of the celebrant,
and from Rituale Romanum on the “The Rite of Blessing and Sprinkling Holy Water on Sundays”.
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.
