Your liberal pastorÔÇÖs worst nightmare!!

. . . and a trustworthy companion for every Catholic who yearns to have the Holy Mass offered with reverence and dignity! You donÔÇÖt have to be silent any longer when the liturgical cowboys afflict you with bizarre, outrageous, or slipshod Liturgies, and then justify them by claiming theyÔÇÖre done ÔÇ£in the spirit of Vatican II.ÔÇØ Vatican II simply didnÔÇÖt mandate variety-show Liturgies ÔÇö and now the documentation that proves it can be yours.

Written in clear, reverent prose by Msgr. Peter J. Elliott, an esteemed priest who is also a member of the Curia in the Vatican, Ceremonies of the Modern Roman Rite distills for you all the relevant Church documents into one single, easy-to-understand liturgical resource.

It tells you not only how the Church wants Mass and other rites celebrated; it also explains the reasons behind every gesture, every phrase, and every ceremonial color and object used in the Liturgy.

Like you, Msgr. Elliott believes that ÔÇ£ceremony must lead people to God,ÔÇØ that ÔÇ£a fear of nobility in worship finds no placeÔÇØ in the Church, and that ÔÇ£beauty and splendor reflect the triumph of the Resurrection.ÔÇØ Relying on detailed directives issued by the Vatican itself, Msgr. Elliott demonstrates that it is the will of the Church (and the right of the congregation) that the Mass be a noble, reverent, and uplifting ceremony that truly glorifies God. And he explains in great detail the specific ways in which the Church expects pastors to achieve this nobility and reverence in the Liturgy.

All who love God and the reverent beauty that is proper to Him will find in these pages both guidance and consolation. In these days of liturgical disarray, Ceremonies of the Roman Rite is truly a Godsend.
