Treasure and Tradition: The Ultimate Guide to The Latin Mass

Available now from Carmel Books:

Have you ever:
  • Considered attending a Latin Mass, but found it too intimidating?
  • Struggled to jump back and forth between the pages of a Latin-English Missal?
  • Wondered what all those people are doing at the altar during High Mass?
  • Wished for an effective way to help children to understand and follow along with the Mass?
  • Wanted to know more about the history of the Mass and how it came to be the way it is?
  • Been puzzled by things like Septuagesima, Rogation Days, and other unfamiliar terms, feasts and practices?

This Guide is just what you’ve been waiting for!

Addressed primarily towards poor souls stuck in a Novus Ordo wasteland and nominal Catholics who may wish to learn something about the Faith into which they were baptised, this book is also very useful for children and even for those who have held on to the Mass for years. It not only does a wonderful job explaining the Mass but also delves into the history of the Mass and explains the meaning of traditional feasts, unfamiliar terms and practices.

Inside Treasure and Tradition is found a word-for-word English translation of the ordinary text of the Mass, together with photos, diagrams, notes and explanations that help to not only to follow along, but also to understand the history and significance of the ceremonies. In addition, there are sections explaining the main differences between the Catholic Mass and the Novus Ordo Missae, a discussion comparing the development of the Mass with that of its sister liturgy, the Divine Office, an exploration of the English translations of the Bible, a full glossary, and finally, recommended prayers intended to help you prepare when receiving the sacraments of Penance and the Holy Eucharist.

Hardback. 8.5" x 11". 120 pages.
