I am a 16 year old Catholic who is quite attached to the Mass, Sacraments, and customs of the church prior to Vatican II. I do accept the validity and the working of the Holy Spirit in Vatican II, but I feel that the old rite is more reverent and I feel more attracted to it because of that. I make it a habit of praying the traditional divine office in Latin on a semi-regular basis (often I only have a chance to recite Vespers). Is this a valid form to use? In order for it to be valid do I have to use the Novus Ordo version of the psalter, or can I use the Tridentine version?
P.S. Your website has answered many questions about the faith. You are doing a wonderful job. May God bless you in your ministry.
You may use the Tridentine version. Wonderful you are praying the divine office. I say a Latin Mass once a week and find the prayers most beautiful, even if I do not understand every word. But I am understanding more and more (even at my age). I hope the same applies to you.
Thank you also for the kind words about the website. You are in my prayers. Remember me as well in yours. God bless,
