An unintimidating guide to understanding the Catholic Mass

Throughout the centuries, the liturgy of the Church has taken a variety of regional and historical forms, but one thing has remained constant: the Mass has always been the central form of Catholic worship.

  • Provides insight on the events, symbols, themes, history, and language of the Mass
  • Translations of a Mass in Castilian and Latin American Spanish

As a returning Catholic, Catholicism & Mass for Dummies is an excellent reference manual. I haven't read the entire book but have directed my attention to the material that is of particular interest to me. Since there is so much that I have forgotten I know that I will be referring to this book over time to clarify any questions I might have. I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

An excellent, engaging and extremely detailed introduction to the Catholic church. I read this before converting, but I beleive practicing Catholics would enjoy and learn a lot from these books as well.

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.

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.
