The Beauty of the Word
A Running Commentary on the Roman Missal
The Beauty of the Word gives a comprehensive, step-by-step commentary to the changes in the Order of Mass (including Prefaces), the Proper of Time, and the Proper of Saints. The unique insights found in this book give the reader a full understanding of the scriptural, liturgical, linguistic, and pastoral rationale of the revised Missal. Anthony Esolen explains the importance of this new translation, and provides context, scriptural references, notes which reference the original Latin text, and more.
