176 pages with tables and appendixes. Saddle-stitched.
An Ordo is an indispensable resource for clergy, sacristans, masters of ceremonies and even the laity to properly follow the 1962 calendar of the traditional Roman Missal (Latin Mass) and Breviary (Divine Office).
Published annually, this 176-page book is officially entitled in Latin as Ordo Divini Officii Persolvendi Missaeque Sacrificii Peragendi Pro Anno Domini 2024 (The Order of the Divine Office Recited and of the Sacrifice of the Mass Celebrated for the Year of our Lord 2024).
As a reference guide, the Ordo applies the calendar rubrics of the missal and breviary in an easy-to-follow format for each liturgical day of the year, so you don't have to figure them out for yourself.

Options for Votive and Requiem Masses (and festivities formerly listed in pre-1962 calendar)
