 Our Description

The Beauty of the Word
A Running Commentary on the Roman Missal
Anthony Esolen

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.

This item received 5 stars overall. Breaks open the Mass prayers for to help us grow in faith

I am not sure exactly what I expected, however I suspect that, once I have had a chance to reflect upon it, The Beauty of the Word  is going to deliver more than I realized. Anyone who has the Magnificat Roman Missal Companion published for the change in the liturgy, has an abbreviated version of this larger book.
