Product Description

This little booklet based on Father Adrian Fortescue's famous work, The Mass: A Study of the Roman Liturgy, provides a compact history of the Roman Rite of the Mass from the Last Supper to the Traditional Mass ("Tridentine Mass") as it is said today. The reader will gain an appreciation of our sacred liturgical heritage - passed down to us from Christian antiquity and intended to be passed on to all Catholic generations yet to come.

Publisher's Description

A short, authoritative, enthralling history of the Roman Mass from the Last Supper to the \"Tridentine Mass\" as said today. Covers Low Mass, Sacramentaries, other Western Rites, etc. Highlights the reforms of Popes St. Gregory the Great (590-604) and St. Pius V (1566-1572). Says neither \"reform\" produced a \"new\" liturgy.

Author Bio

Michael Davies, who lived from 1936-2004, was a Catholic writer who authored various works following the Second Vatican Council, in addition to unifying Una Voce America, a conservative group. Previously an Anglican, he converted to the Catholic Church in the 1950s, and went on to compose such works as The Liturgical Revolution, The Order of Melchisedech, Partisans of Error, For Altar and Throne, and The Wisdom of Adrian Fortescue. Upon Davies' death in 2004, Pope Benedict XVI called him a man of deep faith who was ready to embrace suffering. His Holiness went on to say, "...We can be confident that the Lord opened wide for him the gates of Heaven. We commend his soul to the Lord's mercy."
