Know Your Mass
by Fr. Demetrius Manousos

Originally published by the Catechetical Guild in 1954 (Imprimatur Francis Cardinal Spellman), this is a "comic" book unlike any other. Know Your Mass is a detailed, fully illustrated, step by step explanation of the Traditional Latin Mass now reprinted for the first time in full color!

The book presents the theology of the Mass in a manner easily understood by children and yet is incredibly interesting and informative for adults as well. This should come as no surprise to those who have read The Seven Sacraments, another Angelus Press reprint by Fr. Manousos, who has the amazing ability to take solid theology and present it to children...without dumbing it down. He was truly a gifted writer.

This makes Know Your Mass an excellent catechetical tool for all ages. All parts of the Holy Sacrifice are covered, from the preparation for Mass, the altar, sacred vessels and vestments, liturgical actions, the sanctuary, and some liturgical history as well, including helpful suggestions for children to get the most or should we say GIVE the most at Mass. Ideal, NO, PERFECT, as a First Holy Communion gift. Great for converts as well.

Anyone who delves into this book cannot come away ignorant of the true significance of the liturgical representation of Our Lord's Sacrifice on Calvary that is the Holy Mass. Highly recommended.

96pp, softcover, 335 color illustrations.

Life of Christ
by Fr. Robert E. Southard

Originally published by the Catechetical Guild in 1955 (Imprimatur Francis Cardinal Spellman), this is the "comic" book companion to Know Your Mass. Both illustrated by Addison Burbank in full color.

The book presents the Life of Our Lord from the Annunciation to His Ascension in a manner easily understood by children. Adults will find the seamless integration of the Gospels informative as well.

An ideal companion to Know Your Mass, which presents the unbloody Sacrifice of the Mass...here, children learn to know and love He Who is the Sacrifice. Even students who excel in religion class often do not KNOW Our Lord...they don't yet understand Scripture, the Gospels do not read like the stories they are used to. The Life of Christ introduces them to their Savior in a way they can understand and love. Great for religion classes and makes an excellent gift for the Feast of St. Nicholas, Christmas, Epiphany, Easter, First Holy Communion, name days, birthdays, etc. Highly recommended.

Starting in the Garden of Eden when God promised to send a woman who would battle Satan...a battle "between thy offspring and hers" through her Assumption into Heaven. Adults and children alike will find the seamless integration of the Gospels informative.

An ideal companion to Know Your Mass, which presents the unbloody Sacrifice of the Mass...here, children learn about she who best assisted at the bloody sacrifice of Calvary...she who we are to imitate in our assistance at the unbloody Sacrifice of the Mass.
