"The Holy Mass is a prayer itself, even the highest prayer that exists. It is the Sacrifice dedicated by our Redeemer at the Cross, and repeated every day on the Altar. If you wish to hear the Mass as it should be heard, you must follow with eye, heart, and mouth all that happens at the Altar.
Further, you must pray with the priest the holy words said by him in the Name of Christ and which Christ says by him. You have to associate your heart with the holy feelings which are contained in these words and in this manner you ought to follow all that happens on the Altar. When acting in this way, you have prayed Holy Mass." —Pope Pius X
"The Traditional Latin Mass (1962 Missal) is a venerable Mass with a 1650 year heritage dating back to the reign of Pope Damasus I in the 4th century. The Latin language reverses the punishment of the Tower of Babel, giving the Catholic Church a true universal bond that transcends language barriers. The orientation of the priest and faithful, hopefully facing East in anticipation of the Second Coming, toward God in the tabernacle highlights the principle act at the Holy Sacrifice; adoration of the Holy Trinity. The rubrics dictate a greater fusion of mind, soul, and body to better communicate and reinforce the whole of Catholic doctrine." —Rev. Fr. Donald Kloster
