Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus: An Introductory Latin Missal for Children
Rediscover the truth, goodness, and beauty of the Mass of the Ages. This richly- illustrated introduction to the Latin Mass for readers young and old provides a thorough sampling of Latin text from the missal with English translation. It also provides a look behind the veil of what we can see with our eyes, depicting the meeting of heaven and earth at each Mass, as Pope Saint Gregory the Great stated: “The heavens open and multitudes of angels come to assist in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.” The beauty of the language, the reverent movements, and the salvation made possible through Jesus’s penitential offering to the Father are all depicted lovingly within these pages.
For those unfamiliar but curious about the Latin Mass, this book can ease them into experiencing it without feeling overwhelmed. Even if you’ve only attended the Novus Ordo, the knowledge of the Latin Mass you’ll get from this book will deepen your understanding of the Novus Ordo. For children who can sit still but need help to be fully involved at the Mass, Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus will guide them along visually and verbally.
