I’m starting a new project this week — or rather, I’m letting you in on a book I’ve been reading for my own use. The Sacrifice of the Mass is a sort of RCIA textbook on the Mass, published in 1906 in the UK.
Obviously it doesn’t include the small changes which created the 1962 Mass (used today as the Extraordinary Form of the Latin Rite), and much less does it deal with the Ordinary Form instituted after Vatican II. But I think it’s very useful, both in itself and as a sort of supplement to more modern books about the Mass.
In a shocking break from custom, this introductory chapter actually includes factual material of interest!
