Liturgia Latina: Christmas Proclamation in Latin & English for the TLM
In what has become an annual favorite, visitors have been seeking the Christmas Proclamation recited or sung at Midnight Mass. Several days ago, I posted a link to the English version with music as now found in the latest translation of the Roman Missal. This version is provided by the USCCB and is found in my post linked here.
Many other wish to find the Proclamation recited in Latin for the TLM. The wonderful blog, Liturgia Latina, has published the Proclamation as found here.
