 Our Description

In a period when many Catholic churches are being restored to a traditional sense of function and beauty, the re-availability of this invaluable book could have perhaps not come at a more providential moment!
This 76-page volume is packed with helpful information concerning the altar and its appointments, the sacred vessels and linens, and the vestments used in the Roman Liturgy. It also addresses the baptistery, mortuary chapel and Stations of the Cross.
As described in its Foreword:
The scope of this small book is strictly limited. It aims at giving, in a concise but sufficiently full form and with complete accuracy, the liturgical law—for churches that follow the Roman Rite…
It is important that architects, artificers and all who are engaged in the production of what is needed for divine worship, and members of altar societies, sacristans and others who have care of the sanctuary should understand that the Church has very definite laws concerning this work—laws that should be known and faithfully observed…
Revised and enlarge several times since its original compilation in 1881 under Bishop (later Cardinal) Vaugh, Directions for the Use of Altar Societies and Architects has been a frequently-cited authoritative resource in the English-speaking world for the Roman Rite.
This republished edition has been augmented with diagrams and an extract from the edifying Foreword of the earlier 1912 edition, which states:
It is hoped that this little book may help towards a knowledge of these laws and towards their loyal observance to the greater glory of God.
If you want to ensure that your sanctuary, altar and liturgical requisites are in conformity with the best traditions and mindset of the Roman Catholic Church, this book will help you obtain that goal!
This little volume is also a God-send for Catholics who want to learn more about the sacred liturgy, the primary source of our continued growth in sanctifying grace.
