To familiarize himself with the rubrics and movements of the Mass, a priest should start with the book: Learning the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Latin Rite. It is also strongly recommend that the priest have an ORDO and study The Celebration of Mass for interpreting the finer details of Rubrics of the Roman Breviary and Missal and Ritus Servandis & De Defectibus, which are essential for every priest to know before offering the traditional rite. A video is available which is an excellent tool for instruction in learning the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.
