BTW, just so everyone knows, the word "Liturgy" can refer either to "the whole complex of official services, all the rites, ceremonies, prayers, and sacraments of the Church, as opposed to private devotions" or to "the Sacrifice of the Holy Eucharist."

Extra ordinary.

I voted Forma Extraordinaria, but I do still vary it so its probably actually about even with TLM and Tridentine. I still have a tendency to call the Forma Ordinaria NO, though.

Benedikt uses [i]forma extraordinaria[/i] twice, as well as [i]rituali/formam antiquor[/i] twice as well in [i]Summorum Pontificum[/i].

I've just become accustomed to using "classical Roman Liturgy" and "modern Roman Liturgy" over the past few years. Hopefully, this new terminology will wipe out the woefully popular terms "Tridentine Mass," "Tridentine Rite" (which I have used before), and "Pauline Rite".

Yeah, I really like Forma Ordinaria and Forma Extraordinaria.

I used to always say the Tridentine Latin Mass, and lately I've been saying both that and the Traditional Latin Mass, though since the new name of the Forma Extraordinaria, I will probably try to go by that one now. Yes, I also really like the 2 new names Forma Extraordinaria & Forma Ordinaria. I have just recently heard the term Classical Roman Liturgy for the whole liturgy, the Mass and Divine Office, which is a name I very much like also.

For the ordinary form, I stopped saying Novus Ordo since I heard the music director at St. John Cantius always refer to it as the Mass of Pope Paul VI, and never as the Novus Ordo. So then I decided I would refer to it as this also, which is how the Holy Father refers to it too in his letter.

I especially liked in his letter how he said these two missals of the Roman Rite do not contradict each other. Edited by Margaret Clare

Yeah, that seems to emphasize the two different meanings. The word is usually synonymous with great or excellent, but in the liturgical context, the latter pronounciation emphasizes the "extra" so people know you mean "other than ordinary."

Of course, if you're an awesome extraordinary communion minister, one might say, "Dude, check out how that eSTROARdinary extraOARdinary communion minister!"

I'll bet this is one of those regional things... in the South and West, they probably tend to use the first pronounciation (it's a bit lazier) and the Northeast and Midwest probably tend to prefer the second.

I put that I most often use Tridentine and and Novus Ordo, but I will probably being using Forma Extraordinaria and Forma Ordinaria (or Extra-ordinary Form and Ordinary Form) a lot more now, if enough non-PM people understand what I mean by it.

I normally use: Mass of St. Pius V, and Mass of Paul VI; or the Missal of St. Pius V, and the Missal of Paul VI.

I don't think it matters how you pronounce "extraordinary". It means the same thing whichever way you say it. As a side note, the person who read the Motu Proprio of 7.7.07 at our breakfast group on Sunday did pronounce it "extra-ordinary" ^_^

In the context of theology and the liturgy, I use the latter pronunciation. In the context of anything else, the former.

Most Catholic n00bs don't know what the Tridentine Mass is, but they assume that I'm talking about it when I say "Traditional Latin Mass" because they they think Latin was somehow banned from the Liturgy after Vatican II.
