Overview

Mass Revision: How the Liturgy Is Changing and What It Means for You is the dynamic new book describing the transformation about to occur in parishes across America. The Mass as we've known it for the past 40 years is about to change, and it will never be the same again.

Mass Revision is the latest best-seller from award-winning author Jimmy Akin. As always, Jimmy goes straight to the heart of the issue and cuts through the distortions that have surrounded the liturgy. He quotes the Church's own documents so you can see for yourself what the Church has to say and not be deceived by falsehood and spin.

In this highly readable, information-packed volume, Jimmy lays out the true facts on:

The ways the Mass is changing-and the ways it is staying the same

How the new, more accurate translation restores a sense of sacredness that has been missing for years

The changes in the Church's own laws about the liturgy

The problems we will encounter when the Mass changes-and how to overcome them

Why John Paul II decided that English speakers deserve a better translation

How Pope Benedict XVI determined to see this project through, in spite of opposition

What forces have been trying to subvert the liturgy and undo the Holy See's careful work

Mass Revision provides an overview of the Mass from beginning to end, showing you exactly how the Church says it is to be celebrated and exactly which parts are changing. Topics include the introductory rites, 'the Liturgy of the Word, the Liturgy of the Eucharist, who can and cannot receive Communion, the concluding rites, liturgical furnishings and vestments, postures and actions during Mass, as well as the hot-button issue of liturgical abuses.

This is the very best book on the new Roman Missal 3rd edition it provides an overview of the Mass from beginning to end. It tells you what is proper and what is not. It also explains the reasons for the changes and used official Church documents as a reference point. This is great for new Catholics or Catholics that just want a better understanding of the Mass
