“The Holy Mass is a prayer itself, even the highest prayer that exists. It is the Sacrifice, dedicated by our Redeemer at the Cross, and repeated every day on the Altar. If you wish to hear Mass as it should be heard, you must follow with the eye, heart and mouth all that happens at the Altar. Further you must pray with the Priest the holy words said by him in the Name of Christ and which Christ says by him.”—Pope Saint Pius X

If you’re new to the Traditional Latin Mass there are a number of things that
may look and sound very different from the Mass you are used to attending.
Up until 1962 the Latin Mass was said in the same way for over 1600
years and it was prayed by Catholics around the world. These ancient terms,
concepts, and words may take a little effort to learn but they will greatly
assist you in praying and understanding this sacred liturgy given to us by the
Apostles and prayed by all fervent Catholics throughout time.

Things you’ll learn in this book:
Short biographies of the saints and old testament figures found in the Mass
Concepts associated with traditional Catholicism
Vestments worn by the celebrant
Names and uses of the sacred vessels used during the course of the Holy Sacrifice,
Common Phrases, and Words used in the Traditional Catholic Mass
And Much More

This book is an excellent, easy-to-read, Layman’s guide to the terms used
in the Traditional Latin Mass. Whether you’re new to tradition or helping
someone new, this book is an ideal place to start
