What’s the Difference Between The Latin Mass and Mass in Latin?

09-12-2021Philip Kosloski

However, those two phrases refer to different Masses, though they do have similarities. Mass in Latin

In the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church, Mass has been celebrated in the Latin language since the 3rd century. Originally Mass was primarily celebrated in Greek, which was the common language of most early Christians.
