DIALOGUE MASS

Originally a Mass in which the people in the congregation made to the celebrant the responses that were commonly made by the server. Dialogue Masses were approved by the Holy See in 1922. Since the Second Vatican Council every Mass in which the faithful participate may be called a dialogue Mass because of the frequent interchange of prayers between priest and people.
