Fr Zuhlsdorf had an article on his blog on 8th August about what is a real 1962 missal. The issue is to do with the inclusion of St Joseph`s name in the canon. I have a missal that was published in 1962. The first document is a letter of approval by Cardinal Spellman dated the 10th April 1962. The letter states that this missal conforms to the typical edition approved in Rome on 21st October 1961. This missal does not include St Joseph in the canon. Fr Zuhlsdorf has a missal with a Roman decree of 23rd June 1962 (which mine naturally lacks) and does include St Joseph. While I am happy to concede that the decree of June 1962 establishes the authoritative text for the 1962 missal when I look in Ochoa`s Leges Ecclesiae (a collection of all laws and significant documents published by the Holy See from 1917-1985) I find the decree that asked for St Joseph to be included was published on 13th November 1962 and the change was to come into effect on 8th December 1962. Was there another editio typica published after November 13th 1962? Ochoa does not have the decree of 23rd June 1962 and so may not have included another decree authorising the publication of a missal with the name of St Joseph included.
Then there`s the question of the Confiteor before Communion. It was abolished by the time of the 1962 missal but many people, myself included, like to have it. I believe that in the past Ecclesia Dei said it was ok to use it. Maybe there will be a clarification about this and other matters from that office.
