    Perfect timing!

    Catholic Mass for Dummies just came out earlier this year. Great for simple and non-intimidating catechesis for Catholic adults in light of the upcoming changes in the English translation of the Roman Missal (i.e. words of the Mass). Changes are incorporated and briefly explained in the text, most often based on the Christian Scriptures. Chapters of the book can be chosen for this autumn's adult religious education classes. Other chapters, while not essential to the aforementioned classes, are interesting and answer questions that are often raised about other rites, practices, and religious accoutrements.

    I could recommended

    It is a good book to have for help with the mass, but I really expected a best guide book for the mass, like a quickly guide, and not too much explanations.
