 Our Description

Dr. Maria Montessori's most valuable book.  Every conceivable element of the traditional Mass unfolds before the eyes of children 8 to 15.  36 illustrations assist in answering hundreds of typical questions (asked by adults as well as kids), about Mass.  Narrative, not storytelling, not condescending.  Masterpiece.

This item received 5 stars overall. A must have primer on the Mass -Not just for Children!

The Mass Explained to Children is a classic and a gem. It was written in 1932, and corresponds to the Mass the way in which it was celebrated then. Yet, it is written in such a Sacred way, that its relevance transcends time and form. It is a walk through of the Mass, and takes care to explain even the finest of details. While it was originally intended to be a primer for adults to explain the Mass to children, it can very well be used as a primer on the Mass for all.

This book should be a mandatory read for all catechists, and those parents whose children are approaching the age of First Communion.

It is written in a very straight forward style, but Montessori is careful to capture the mystery and Sacred within her explanation of the physical acts which occur at the Mass. While it is instructional in its structure, its words capture the theological and Sacred qualities of those acts Full Review...
