Here is a book that is a product of our rich Catholic heritage, one that is destined to instruct both our modern times and the future. Written with the traditional Latin Mass as its paradigm, it is nonetheless not actually about that Mass, but about the essence of the Mass in general—about any Eucharistic Divine Liturgy, in any rite—and thus it has a universal appeal and is for the whole world.
This book should be owned personally by every Catholic 15 years of age or older and should be read and re-read until its insights are one's own—and thereafter every three to five years to refresh one's memory. The laity will gain tremendous instruction from this book, and even priests will discover their learning about the Mass renewed and their fervor in saying it increased.
Everyone who reads The Incredible Catholic Mass will think of his Mass attendance in terms of before and after this book. For it confirms the understanding that the Mass is incomparably the greatest prayer—that it is offered to God, not just by the officiating priest, but also by Jesus Christ Himself—in homage, in praise, in thanksgiving, in reparation, in petition, for conversions, for the Poor Souls, for health, for the Church, for the country, for society . . . —in short, for whatever legitimate intention a person can have.
The Incredible Catholic Mass is truly an incredible book about the most incredible reality in our midst: the Catholic Mass.

There Incredible Catholic Mass,ù has deepened my love for the Mass through explaining what is actually happening. It is lifting mystical veils and Im only half way through the book. For me, its to be read slowly and to ponder prayfully over.
It is a must read to help increase the depth of love both for the mass and the Eucharist. Most chapters are only 8-10 pages so reading a chapter a day is usually doable. I have bought and given away several dozen of them for I believe this is something that many many Catholics don;t really appreciate or understand today. We really need priests if we are to continue to be able have a mass that we can go to. Pray for our priests as we are all in need in this great spiritual warfare in which we are engaged.
I consider this one of the most important books all Catholics should read. If you want to know what is happening in the Holy Mass then this book will tell you exactly what you need to know. I have read my copy many times and each time I read it I learn something new. It truly shows you how the Holy Mass is the life of Jesus. Just imagine, at every Mass you have the opportunity to stand below the Cross to worship and adore our dying Jesus and to see him rise again. Please buy this book to understand better what is happening in the Holy Mass.
This book is an excellent book for those who want to come to know how awesome the Holy Mass is. It is an easy read with simple and well organized breaking down of the meaning of the mass and its value. This book won;t be boring because its explanations are followed with amazing stories and examples to better understand the point of each topic covered in the chapter. I am a priest and I have found this book inspirational and motivational in appreciating the power and value of the mass. This book is not only worth reading and your time, but it will truly change your attitude towards the Holy Mass. In my humble opinion it would benefit any Catholic faithful, a lay or clergy. I am glad that I was able to read this book it change me in a way I offer the Holy Mass. I would highly recommend this book to any Catholic. If the Holy Mass has become to you a routine or you are bored when present at Holy Mass then you definitely need to read this book.
It, along with the diary of Sister Faustina, was the most informative book about our salvation besides the Bible I'veread. Years ago, Vince Lombardi after an early-season loss, took his professional American football team and began lessons in the basics of football.... the size of the ball, the stitching, the field measurements and divisions, cleats, the uniform of the players, the rules, etc. It was these fundementals which allowed his team - the very famous Green Bay Packers - to win many titles and honors. It's the same with "The Incredible Catholic Mass." This fabulous book explains the beginning of the sacred Mass, the vital rituals, the secret prayers said from the altar, how to include your intentions with those of the Celebrant, the consecration, and so much more. It's the basics of the Mass with theological proof, historical information and references, and intelligently written for the everyday reader. Highly recommended... in fact, I purchased eight more copies today for my children and friends.
I Can't wait to get this book read. I absolutely LOVE daily mass and love explaining it to my friends and family and students.
