A Latin Lectionary

Somebody at work brought in a Latin Lectionary that was published in 1947. Being Catholic I thought it was really cool and interesting. He was nice enough to let me snap a few pics of it. I will translate some but not all:

The Lectionary

Epistle to the Gospel (top).  The whole year (bottom)
The front page
The mass in honor of the Feast Day of Corpus Christi
Music from the book. Notice that the music notes are square. This the way they did originally back in Middle Ages
The Feast Days for August. Die means Day.
The Gospel Mass for the Feast Days of Decemeber
I thought it very cool to look at this Lectionary.
