More About George J. Moorman & R. Michael Schmitz
Msgr. George J. Moorman was born in 1883 at Indiana, where he spent the majority of his life. He was ordained a priest on the thirteenth of June, 1908, by Bishop Herman J. Alerding at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. He remained a priest for over seventy years, serving as an editor of Our Sunday Visitor and an army chaplain during the first World War. His work The Latin Mass Explained was originally published in 1920 by Our Sunday Visitor Press, upon which it received the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur. TAN reprinted the book with new material in 2007. Father Moorman died in 1979 at the age of 95.

The Latin Mass E-X-P-L-A-I-N-E-D Feb 23, 2008
Msgr. Moorman's explanation of the Latin Mass in this small book is great. Before even beginning to explain the bits and pieces of the Latin Mass, he explains /what/ the Mass is and that means for us. The book was immensely helpful in better appreciating not only what takes place at Mass, but appreciating the Tridentine liturgy as something that must be preserved. Msgr. Moorman clearly and succinctly explains everything about the Latin Mass-- what it is, why, what is used/why, and what the prayers mean.
For anyone wishing to attend a Latin Mass, I also recommend this book as a practical point; there's a list of when to stand, sit, and kneel during the liturgy--so no worries about feeling lost!
