Absolutely gorgeous--full-color photos, diagrams artwork!
Have you ever:
-Considered attending a Latin Mass, but found it too intimidating?
-Struggled to jump back and forth between the pages of a Latin-English Missal?
-Wanted to know more about the history of the Mass and how it came to be the way it is?
-Wondered at the Biblical roots of so much that occurs in the Mass?
This Guide is just what you’ve been waiting for!
And it is SO MUCH MORE than a guide to the Extraordinary Form of the Mass--
though it is loaded a word-for-word English translation of the Latin text of the Mass.
It also has wonderful photos, diagrams, notes and explanations that will help you not only to follow along (and not get lost), but also to understand the history and significance of the ceremonies.
But this is a resource with so much more:
--All about vestments and liturgical colors, sacred vessels and linens
--Explanations of what's on the altar and the other items for Mass
--Sections explaining the main differences between the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms
--A discussion comparing the development of the Mass with that of its sister liturgy, the Divine Office
--A fantastic exploration of the English translations of the Bible
--And a full glossary
--And so much more--truly an encyclopedia of the Faith in one jam-packed volume!
