Rites of the Catholic Church

Here is an explanation of the Rites of the Catholic Church. It is an EWTN supported page.

Here are a few videos of different rites of the Catholic Church. These are short videos but can give you a taste of the different rites.

Just a few pictures with the names of the Rites.
(Not all of the info is exactly correct but it does show how diverse the Catholic Church is.)

Byzantine Catholic Mass done in English
(We have one in Houston. It is called "Saint John Chrysostom." Click here to view their site.

Tridentine Rite Mass (Old Latin Mass)
(The FSSP is about to build a new Church in North west Houston. It is not yet built.)

(Ignore what the PBS person says he's wrong on a few points. Just watch the rest. The priest explains it quite well in my opinion.)

Here is an old video of the Tridentine Mass.
(It is also explained. Narration by Bishop Sheen).

Maronite Liturgy

We have a parish in Houston. "Our Lady of the Cedars" click here to view their website.

Anglican Use Mass
(There is one "Our Lady of Walshingham" in Houston also but they didn't have a mass video. To see Our Lady of Walshingham, which I think is nicer, click here. Thought I might be a bit bias seeing I attend Walshigham fairly regularly.)

Syrian/ Syro-Malabar Rite Catholic Church
One of the priest at St. Theresa's in Sugar Land is a Syro-Malabar Rite priest but I've never heard him do the Rite.

(following 2 videos)

(I was unable to find an actual mass but I believe this might be a part of a mass.)

    I long to attend Latin Mass and a Byzantine Catholic Mass!
    Thank you so much for taking the time to put this post together!
