Fall 2011

On the First Sunday of Advent, November 27, 2011, the Third Edition of the Roman Missal will be implemented throughout all English-speaking regions in the world.

These changes to the liturgy are bound to heighten our awareness of what it is that we say and do every time we gather to celebrate Mass, and so what better time to take the opportunity to learn more about the Church's most perfect prayer? To that end, we have selected the new book Catholic Mass for Dummies as our Fall book recommendation.

Of course, there are lots of great books about the Mass to choose from, but some of them are admittedly difficult to read and understand. After all, it is a broad and deep subject. This book, however, is accessible to readers of any age and any level of understanding about our faith.

Catholic Mass for Dummies describes in a concise, thorough, and--most importantly--accurate way the meaning of the Mass, its history, the role of the participants, the parts of the Mass, and much more. The authors also address the changes that will be made to the liturgy, describing what those changes will be and what they mean.

Whether you're just starting out, are simply curious, or have been going to Mass for years and could use a refresher, Catholic Mass for Dummies is sure to teach you something new. The more we know about the Mass, the more meaningful it becomes and the richer our experience will be every time we celebrate the Eucharist.

Beginning September 1 through November 30, Catholic Mass for Dummies will be available for purchase or special order at St. Patrick's Book & Gift at 20% off the regular retail price. Stop by and pick up a copy.

FYI...If you're looking for more about the Catholic faith in general, we can also highly recommend Catholicism for Dummies by the same authors. Both publications are an excellent addition to any Catholic home library.
