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.

The How-To Book of the Mass

Review: Wonderful insight to the biblical origins of the mass. I am a very experienced teacher. This could assist greatly In bible,liturgy and sacramental develoment for all. Students from the sixth grad thru ouhh college. I have an experienced criminal lawyer who upon reading the has asked me to lead him in catechism for conversion. (I am a catechist)


Review: I was looking for a book on the mass. I have so many questions about it. Early into the read, but very informative.

The How-To Book of the Mass

Review: An Excellent reference book.


Review: As a cradle Catholic who was well catechized by his parents, this book has been enlightening and rejuvenating for me. This book is ultra-critical in today's climate where there are so many poorly catechized who don't "get" the significance of The Mass. This could be a great book in helping to keep people Catholic by getting the most out of our weekly celebration.

The How-To Book of the Mass

Review: Excellent step by step coverage of the Mass....what is happening, why it's happening, and what we should be doing while it's happening. Makes attending Mass a very joyful event.

A Must for Cradle Catholics

Review: This should be required reading for every cradle Catholic. It breaks the Mass down into small bits and explains the WHY the Mass is celebrated the way it is. If everyone understood exactly what was going on during the Mass, there should would be A LOT more excitement and sense of anticipation!!! After all, it is the real Presence of our Lord! Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Informative

Good guide, explained well

Review: A useful guide, an ideal gift for newcomers to the church along with older members who just never knew why and was too embarrassed to ask ! Best Uses: Gift, Older Readers, Reference, Younger Readers; Describe Yourself: Casual Reader; Pros: Easy To Read, Informative, Well Written

Great Book!

Review: The only thing that keeps me from giving this book 5 stars is that it says on the back of the cover something about how to confess your sins, which I took to mean actual confession. Instead, what is covered in the book is the penitential rite during mass. However, this is only a small detail, and the subject of confession had no bearing on my buying the book. Otherwise an excellent book on the mass! Best Uses: Gift, Reference; Describe Yourself: Bookworm; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Informative, Well Written

WOW - a MUST Read

Review: Michael Dubriel has clearly explained all the parts and prayers of the Mass. All Catholics and all studying to become Catholic would do well to add this book to their library. Regular reading of it should enhace one's participation in the central most solemn ceremony of our faith. Best Uses: Gift, Great for RCIA students, Older Readers, Reference, Travel Reading, Younger Readers; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Brings Mass to life, Deserves Multiple Readings, Informative, Page-Turner, Well Written
