‘Experts’ after the Second Vatican Council believed that the traditional liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church was irrelevant to modern man. But they were wrong.
The rich symbolism, whispered Latin, and layers of elaborate gestures of the Latin Mass, has survived the past half-century, growing, and becoming an increasingly familiar feature in the Catholic landscape, much to the shock of some, the delight of many, and the surprise of everyone else.
What’s the reason for this revival, especially among the young? And, why is this development so instrumental in the renewal of Catholicism?
Peter Kwasniewski presents a dynamic account of the noble beauty and holiness of the traditional Roman liturgy, which humbles us before the mystery of God, moves us to sacred silence, and stirs us with its pageantry.
Contrasting this priceless treasure with the rationalistic reforms of the sixties; which produced a Catholic liturgy severed from its history, insufficient to its theological essence, and estranged from its cultural inheritance, he concludes that if there is to be a new springtime in this Church, the Latin Mass will be at the heart of it.
“Anyone who wants a frank, honest, and deep explanation of worship, prayer, and liturgy should get this book. Be prepared to marvel at the depth of the Mass.” — REV. JAMES W. JACKSON, F.S.S.P., author of Nothing Superfluous
