Mass (mas) n. 1. The Liturgy of the Eucharist. 2. The Breaking of the Bread. 3. To send forth with blessing.

Maybe you are a recent convert, or perhaps you’ve attended Mass your whole life, but there are still things that puzzle you — like when you should genuflect and when you should bow. What the different books used at Mass are and what they contain. The meaning of words like "Amen," "Alleluia," or "Hosanna." What to do during the Sign of Peace.

You aren’t alone.

The How-To Book of the Mass not only provides the who, what, where, when, and why of the most time-honored traditions of the Catholic Church, but also the how. All in an easy-to-read, easy-to understand format.

"Every day Our Lord humbles himself just as he did when he came from his heavenly throne into the Virgin's womb; every day he comes to us and lets us see him in abjection, when he descends from the bosom of the Father into the hands of the priest at the altar... We, too, with our own eyes, see only bread and wine, but we must see further and firmly believe that this is his most holy Body and Blood, living and true. In this way our Lord remains continually with his followers, as he promised." — Saint Francis Assisi
