The Meaning of the Mass
Materials for Meditation on the Holy Sacrifice and its Relation to Our Spiritual Life.
By Rev. John Kearney, C.S.Sp.
Imprimatur, 1940, 262 page book.
This book will lead the reader to a fuller knowledge of the Mass, and to a clearer view of the disposition of soul needed to receive the rich graces which the Council of Trent tells us are so abundantly bestowed by God through the Holy Sacrifice. The reader will appreciate that Fr. Kearney includes a simplified summary of the sequence of thought in the body of the book and as a result the inner meaning of the Mass will be simple and at the same time profound. Many consider this book “absolutely excellent, theologically accurate and, from a spiritual point of view, calculated to be most helpful.”
