This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word votive mass
In the liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church, a votive Mass is a Mass offered for a votum, a special intention.
The Mass does not correspond to the Divine Office for the day on which it is celebrated. Every day in the year has appointed to it a series of canonical hours and a Mass corresponding, containing, for instance, the same Collect and the same Gospel. Normally the Mass corresponds to the Office, but on occasion, may not. These are votive Masses.
