About the book, and why is has been written:

It is a book I wrote during a prolonged period of convalescence. It began life as a series of articles on the Mass to explain to my parishioners the reasons for the textual changes of 2011. But with time on my hands during convalescence, I expanded it to an explanation of the whole Mass, its history, its theology, its purpose, its meaning. I took it off Kindle, where it had been published as an ibook, because I wanted my parishioners to have easy access to it. I have been convinced since I was a young priest that Catholics on the whole do not understand the Mass anything like they should. And as the Mass is the white hot centre of our Catholic Faith, deeper knowledge of it leads to deeper understanding of what the Faith is about and an inevitable deepening of our love for Christ and his Church.
