|Resurgent in the Midst of Crisis:|
Sacred Liturgy, the Traditional Latin Mass,
and Renewal in the Church
Saturday, January 3, 2015
Read. This. Book.
I’m “breaking silence” again to make a suggestion for the new year: If there is only one book you read in 2015, let it be this one.
It's available at Amazon, here.
It is not available on Kindle. Now it IS available on Kindle!
If I thought I could write a review of this book that would do it justice, I would. But I cannot. I will say a few words, though:
Dr. Peter Kwasniewski is eloquent, articulate, and knowledgeable in his defense and promotion of the Traditional Latin Mass. He calmly and logically outlines the deficiencies of the Novus Ordo Mass as it is commonly experienced, with its multitude of “institutionalized abuses” – and his passionate love for the Mass is evident throughout the book. An added bonus is that in many places, Dr. Kwasniewski’s thoughtful commentary lends itself quite easily to topics for meditation.
If you already love the TLM, you should read this book. It will help you understand at an even deeper level why you love it.
If you already detest the Novus Ordo, you should read this book. It will help you understand at an even deeper level the problems inherent in that liturgy.
If you are averse to the TLM, you should read this book. It will help you understand why the TLM is, in fact, superior to the Novus Ordo.
If you are perfectly happy with the Novus Ordo, you should read this book. It will help you understand that, as I have written elsewhere, “We’ve been robbed!”
I sincerely wish that every priest and bishop and lay person would read this book...as well as the Holy Father.
