Section Two thoroughly describes the visible and audible aspects of the Mass. Explains the use of Latin, the position of the Altar in relation to the people, the vestments, the sacred vessels and more.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Latin Mass Explained?

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!
