I am writing this review as someone who is in the process of converting to the Catholic Church and who is currently attending an RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) class in the UK. I spent a while looking for a book that went through the Mass step by step and explained why and how certain things were done.

I am really pleased I found this book and have to say it is an absolutey wonderful and essential book for all confirmed and non-confirmed Church attenders who want to understand the Catholic Mass better. It goes through the entire Mass (The New English Translation 2011) and explains why each thing is said and done, in addition to detailing such things as the liturgical year and priests vestment colour. It covers everything (inculding a section on traditional Latin Mass) and has allowed me to understand, appreciate and participate in the Mass better than before.

I cannot recommend this book strongly enough together with 'Catholicism for Dummies' - it also contains a lot of useful information. My Priest says he regularly reads both books and he also recommemds them to everyone.

Format: Paperback
Most comprehensive. Brings forth a very detailed account of how the Mass developed and the description of the vestments and articles is much more detailed than in previous publications. As I said, not just for dummies but for almost every ordinary Catholic. Well done!
