This book is excellent as an introduction to someone wanting to learn a little more about the Mass. It certainly explains the Biblical origins of the Mass and the nature of sacrifice and oblation. It is a truly enlightening book yet easy to read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0895557649, Paperback)

This easy-to-read book reveals the What, Why and How of the Traditional Latin Mass - which Pope Benedict XVI has now called the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. Catholics of all ages will find that the Mass - and the entire Catholic Faith- has been opened up to them for the first time. This amazing work shows the awesome dignity of the traditional Catholic Liturgy and the rich spiritual significance of every element of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Broken up into three parts, The Latin Mass Explained begins with a thorough treatise on Sacrifice. Here is described in clear terms the need for Sacrifice, the Old Testament Sacrifice, the Sacrifice of the Cross, the Sacrifice of the Mass and the Relationship of this Divine Gift. Next Msgr. Mooreman describes all the externals of the Latin Mass; everything from its name, the use of Latin, the vestments, the ceremonies and how to Assist at Mass. Lastly, and most importantly, the Mass is broken down prayer for prayer, and action for action showing the symbolism, history and meaning behind every aspect of the Mass.
