Here is a book that is a product of our rich Catholic heritage, one that is destined to instruct both our modern times and the future. Written with the traditional Latin Mass as its paradigm, it is nonetheless not actually about that Mass, but about the essence of the Mass in general—about any Eucharistic Divine Liturgy, in any rite—and thus it has a universal appeal and is for the whole world.
This book should be owned personally by every Catholic 15 years of age or older and should be read and re-read until its insights are one's own—and thereafter every three to five years to refresh one's memory. The laity will gain tremendous instruction from this book, and even priests will discover their learning about the Mass renewed and their fervor in saying it increased.
Everyone who reads The Incredible Catholic Mass will think of his Mass attendance in terms of before and after this book. For it confirms the understanding that the Mass is incomparably the greatest prayer—that it is offered to God, not just by the officiating priest, but also by Jesus Christ Himself—in homage, in praise, in thanksgiving, in reparation, in petition, for conversions, for the Poor Souls, for health, for the Church, for the country, for society . . . —in short, for whatever legitimate intention a person can have.
The Incredible Catholic Mass is truly an incredible book about the most incredible reality in our midst: the Catholic Mass.
