Item No. 2208

Indispensable resource for the traditional Roman Liturgy! J.B. O'Connell, author of several liturgically-related works, is noted for his ability to clearly explain the complex ceremonial workings of the Roman Rite.

The Celebration of Mass is valued by clergy and laity alike not only for its concise handling of the general rubrics, but also for its chapters that briefly describe the history of the development of the traditional Roman Mass, liturgical law, and the proper understanding of the force of custom.

This is one of the few rubrical books completely in conformity with the new code of rubrics implemented in 1960 that comprise the 1962 edition of the Missale Romanum.

Fully indexed and beautifully hardbound in dark green with gold embossing on the cover and spine! This is a must-have for any enthusiast of the Church's sacred liturgy. 622 pages, 9 1/2" x 6 1/2", hardcover, sewn, marking ribbon.

About The Author
Reverend J.B. O Connell begins the foreword to his lengthy work The Celebration of Mass with the words, A priest is ordained to offer sacrifice to God. Thus does he introduce a properly detailed reference guide for priests explaining how to celebrate the Mass properly. In the author's own words, it is ...a detailed study of the rubrics of the missal. The 1962 missal is not, however, the only work to be discussed: Father O Connell also explores the rubrics of other liturgical books as Caeremoniale Episcoporum and Memoriale Rituum. Stressing the fact that only the authentic interpretation of the rubrics has binding force, he wished for The Celebration of Mass to assist his fellow clerics in offering the Divine Sacrifice a little more worthily. The book received the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur upon its publication in 1964.
