There is a wrong notion being spread throughout Catholic milieus, especially in the English-speaking world, that the Rosary should not be prayed during Mass. This policy frontally contradicts a general norm that ruled in the Church before Vatican II. Although following the Mass with the Missal was always considered the most appropriate way to pray during Mass, the Rosary, spiritual readings or other forms of piety were judged entirely legitimate to pray as well. We wonder whether there is some Protestant tendency behind the ban against the Rosary and other excellent devotions being said during Mass.
To corroborate this traditionally approved custom, we post below a photocopy of the part wherein this is stated in the Introduction of the Holy Bible edited by Rev. Fr. John P. O'Connell and approved by the Archbishop of Chicago, Cardinal Samuel Strich, in its 1950 edition.
