1910 New Catholic Dictionary
A Romanized form of the Liturgy of Saint James, used by the Maronite Church. The liturgical language is Syriac, or Aramaic, although Arabic written in Syriac characters (Karshuni), is used almost always for the Epistle, Gospel, Creed, and Pater Noster. Frequent use of incense is a characteristic of the Maronite Mass. They use a round Host of unleavened bread, as in the Roman Rite. The Canon of the Mass varies according to the feast celebrated. The words of consecration are intoned aloud; vestments differ little from the Roman.
