It would be easier for the world to survive without the sun than to do without Holy Mass.
– Padre Pio
For the past three months, we have felt the aching absence of Mass. Yet finally it seems the end is in sight!
Once we finally return to Mass, however, we’ll all notice some key differences, including the absence of communal missals, missalettes, or Order of Mass cards. When we return to Mass, we’ll all need to bring our own missals or Order of Mass if it helps us get more out of the Mass. Below, we’ve provided a selection of missals, Order of Mass, and books containing the Order of Mass.
Returning to Mass is also a time to rejuvenate our love for the sacrifice and to remind ourselves, or perhaps teach ourselves for the first time, what actually happens at Mass. Therefore we’ve also compiled a selection of helpful books which explain the Mass.
