The Celebration of Mass by Rev. J. B. O'Connell - A priest is ordained to offer sacrifice to God. His chief duty, his dearest privilege, is to celebrate Mass. The offering of the Christian Sacrifice is a divine act, but it is done in an entirely human way. Its essential elements were determined by the Chief Priest -- who is at the same time the august Victim -- our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, but the setting in which this sublime act should take place, the rite in which it was to be enshrined for all time, was left to His Church to settle. And the Church, guided by the Holy Spirit, has in the course of centuries created this rite, and has fixed in detail the manner in which the Mass is to be celebrated. This book is a study of the rubrics of the Roman Missal, 1962 edition. It is an endeavor to give a detailed and accurate explanation and interpretation of these rubrics This is a necessary reference for any priest offering the Traditional Latin Mass according to the 1962 Roman Missal. A great ordination gift! Hard bound, 622 pp.

The Incredible Catholic Mass -- I believe that were it not for holy Mass, at this moment the world would be in the abyss, unable to bear up under the mighty load of its iniquities. Mass is the potent prop that holds the world upon its base. Therefore, when we are assisting at Mass, we ought to practice that which once Alphonsus of Albuquerque did, who, finding himself with his fleet in danger of perishing during a fierce and terrific tempest, adopted the following means: He took in his arms an innocent little child which was on board his ship, and lifting it up toward heaven, he said, "If we are sinners, this creature is certainly free from sin; O Lord, for love of this innocent, remit to us the death we deserve!" Will you believe it? The spectacle of that stainless babe was so pleasing to God that He tranquilized the sea, and changed into joy for these unfortunates their terror of a death already imminent. Now, what do you believe is done by the Eternal Father when the priest, lifting in the air the thrice-sacred Victim, shows to Him the innocence of His Divine Son? Ah, then His compassion cannot resist the sight of the most spotless innocence of Jesus, and He feels as if compelled to calm our storms, and to provide for all our necessities.

Conformity to the Will of God - from the writings of St. Alphonsus Liguori

God Directs All Things for Our Best Nothing happens in this world but by the direction or permission of God. "Nothing," says St. Augustine, "occurs by chance in the whole course of our life. God overrules all." Let these words penetrate into the depths of our souls; then we shall never regard what comes to us from God's hands as hurtful. "God is so good," writes St. Dionysius, "that He, who alone needs nothing for Himself, is constantly producing good for others. He is so glorious and magnificent that through the unattainable and inexpressible fullness of His love He conducts all things to their perfection."

Yes, God wills only our good, our salvation. It is His will not merely that no one should perish, but that all should save and sanctify themselves.

Saints Who Raised The Dead -
True stories of 400 resurrection miracles. The raising of the dead is a miracle which, astonishing as it is, has been performed hundreds of times since Christ. Our Lord told His Apostles to raise the dead (Matthew 10:8), and over the Christian centuries many saints have done so - particularly great missionaries like St. Francis Xavier, St. Patrick, St. Vincent Ferrer, St. Hyacinth, St. Louis Bertrand, but also a multitude of other saints, including St. John Bosco, St. Philip Neri, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Francis of Paola, St. Teresa of Avila, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, St. Malachy, St. Elizabeth of Hungary, St. Joan of Arc, St. Rose of Lima, and Blessed Margaret of Costello. The stories of these resurrection miracles are amazing; they include the raising of persons who had drowned, of persons with mutilated bodies, of persons who had been hanged, and of those whose bodies had already suffered decay or had been buried for several years.

St. Maria Goretti was not 12 years old when she was faced with the momentous decision in July of 1902: sin or death. Maria's answer to her assailant was clear: "No! No! It is a sin! God does not want this!" Alessandro stabbed Maria 14 times, and little Maria became another virgin martyr in the line of St. Agnes and St. Cecelia. Here is the beautiful true story of Maria's virtuous life that led to her heroic choice, and of the Goretti family's terrible poverty, Maria's First Holy Communion, her great maturity in shouldering adult responsibilities, her forgiveness of her murderer, her lingering death, then finally her public elevation to sainthood in 1950 -- in the presence of her mother, her family, and the largest crowd ever seen at a canonization -- over a half million people.

The Mass - A Study of the Roman Liturgy - by Adrian Fortescue - Available in both Paperback and Hard Cover. This book was a tremendous contribution to English speaking Catholics. With knowledge of the origin and development of the rite of Mass, Catholics could more confidently defend its sacrificial nature against the heretics who despised it. Too, the book was a great help in answering the questions of those curious Protestants who were in various degrees jealous of the liturgical beauty of the Roman Mass. Hard Cover.

The author, the son of a converted Anglican clergyman, was born in 1874. He was educated in England by the Jesuits and pursued further studies in Rome at the Scots College, finishing his theological courses at the University of Innsburck. After ordination he was assigned various curateships, from one wof which he managed to take a year sabbatical in Syria. Already a Hebrais scholar, here he perfected his fluency with the Arabic language. Fortescue was proficient in a variety of subjects including ecclesiastical history, Greek patrology, linguistics, dogmatic theology, and especially, liturgical history. In addition to these and many other subjects, he was a gifted choirmaster. Adrian Fortescue did much in his native country to publicly defend the papacy, specifically in one aspect, papal infallibility. Fortescue died young, aged forty-nine, from cancer.
