In working out an answer to an inquiry from a colleague (ecclesiologist) about a certain acclamation in the Roman Missal, I just discovered that the English Translation According to the Third Typical Edition (2011) does not seem to include an appendix with the entire Latin text of the Mass, that is, the Ordo Missae. In contrast, the previous Sacramentary (1975, based on the second typical edition of the Missale Romanum) includes such an appendix, namely, Appendix IV, with three sections: Ordo Missae Cum Populo, Ordo Missae Sine Populo, and Missae Diversae.

I’m at a loss. Am I missing something in this massive third English-edition missal in front of me, or am I just incapable of navigating it properly? Any helpful advice (including where I might easily access the Latin typical edition) would be greatly appreciated.
