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 is truly a gifted
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.
