 Our Description


If we would live the Mass, we must assist at it. And if we would assist at it, we must understand it. If Mass for you has become routine, a conforming to unthinking custom, simply a family habit, or to avoid mortal sin, The Heart of the Mass is the book to read.


The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is not just a show-time unlinked with life, a "church service" to which one goes as an indifferent witness and passive spectator. Learn to bring something to Mass-Understanding. Then, pass that understanding on to your kids. Learn to put your life into the Mass and the Mass into your life.

What is the Holy Sacrifice of Christ at the Mass? What is the Mass of the Catechumens, of the Faithful? This book disects the Holy Mass into its component parts, prayer by prayer, phrase by phrase, in Latin with parallel English. Just what are we praying? Why? When? For whom? With whom? It synthesizes explanations from the Fathers and Doctors, revelations to Saints, teachings of the Church, history and mystic commentary. Tells you what the celebrant and ministers are doing and the symbolism of their gestures. A chapter on articles used for Mass and their spiritual significance. Proposes meditations and the benefits of devout participation. Acts of oblation.
