How to Serve Low Mass and Benediction
It is a great privilege for a man to be allowed to serve at the altar of God and this book is an outstanding resource for learning how. It is a simple textbook of ceremonies for altar servers with diagrams showing the movements and positions of the servers.
For its size, it packs in a great deal of information, which is easily digestable, such as an explaination of the vestments of the Priest, the sanctuary and sacristy appointments, together with an "interlinear phonetic arrangement" of the Latin prayers (which means an Englished version of Latin).
It will help any new learner appreciate the high honour of serving the Altar, by encouraging the greatest reverence in the Sanctuary, by paying exact attention during the Sacred services and by learning their part as perfectly as possible! Pictures of the sacristy, sanctuary, the sacred vessels and vesments are shown in the pages so that the server will know the right name and place for everything used at the altar.
The main part of the book teaches the Latin responses of the acolyte and directs the server in their movementss and positions when serving Low Mass according to the 1962 Missale Romanum. The Mass section of the book is divided into five lessons so that the learner can master a little at a time and master it well.
