High Mass

High Mass may mean:

  • Solemn Mass, a Tridentine Mass celebrated with deacon and subdeacon (international and general United States usage)
  • Missa Cantata, a sung Tridentine Mass without deacon and subdeacon (usage among United States Catholics)

The renowned liturgist Adrian Fortescue declared that the Missa Cantata "is really a low Mass, since the essence of high Mass is not the music but the deacon and subdeacon".

    Adolf Hitler (1889–1945)

    Because of these convictions, I made a personal decision in the 1964 Presidential campaign to make education a fundamental issue and to put it high on the nation’s agenda. I proposed to act on my belief that regardless of a family’s financial condition, education should be available to every child in the United States—as much education as he could absorb.
