  • Product Description: In the footsteps of Msgr. Klaus Gamber and Cardinal Ratzinger, Fr. Trinchard presents a licensed theologian's personal analysis of the Mass as experienced in the United States since 1968 when priests were forbidden the use of Latin. Using the English for all the years of his priesthood, Fr. Trinchard began to say the Latin Tridentine Mass 3 years ago, and his life was changed by it. In this new book, Father presents the thoughts of St. Leonard of Port Maurice on the basic purpose of the Mass of all time. He then goes on to offer meditations and reflections on each part of the Mass, footnoting the Latin portions on the left side of the page, as well as the exact English translation on the right side of the page. Included are quotations from some of the greatest saints commenting on the Mass such as St. John Chrysostom, St. Pius X and Cardinal Neuman who calls the Holy Mass the greatest action that can be on earth. Father's deep love of the Tridentine Mass expresses the conversion of heart which occurred to him as a result of offering the Canonized Mass, and we are sure such a conversion would occur each time a priest returned to the celebration of the Mass Rite he was born into. This is the Mass Padre Pio said the world could not get along without! It is the Holy Mass St. Peter Julian Eymard said is the offering that is most precious, most useful, and most agreeable to the Divine Majesty. Following the Mass prayers there is a section including prayers which most Catholics have not seen for many years, such as the Anima Christi of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Sucipe of St. Ignatius Loyola, Act of Reparation to the Most Blessed Sacrament, the Eucharistic Prayers from Fatima , and Prayer for the Return of the Roman Rite Mass. Written as a prayerbook to be taken to Mass also. We may hope this book will awaken from the sleep of lukewarmness all souls of good will who long for union with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.
