The Order of Mass in Latin and English New English Translation - Catholic Truth Society - CTS Prayers and Devotions

The Order of Mass in Latin and English
New English Translation
Prayers and Devotions
Catholic Truth Society
ISBN 9781860820359
CTS Booklet D506

Over the last few years, I have read over 150 volumes from the CTS. I have read books from many series. And many authors. Lately I have read several books that are part of the CTS Devotions and Prayer Series. I have read many in the CTS Biographies and also Saints of the Isles Series, and the Great Saints Series. This book does not have an attributed author. It does have an Imprimatur, Peter Smith, Archbishop of Southwark, and a Concordat cum originali by Martin Foster. The volume was first published in 1977, revised in 2003 and again for this edition in 2011. The description of the booklet is:

“The Order of Mass approved for use in the United States, handsomely printed in a durable edition that even children can afford; a permanent softcover book that's ideal for following the Mass on Sundays and weekdays, or for teaching adults and children about the Mass. The book carries the approval of the International Commission on the Liturgy and is ideal for use as a supplementary text in CCD and RCIA classes.”

And the chapters on facing pages in Latin on the left and English on the right are:

The Introductory Rites
The Liturgy of the Word
The Liturgy of the Eucharist
The Eucharistic Prayer
      Eucharistic Prayer I
      Eucharistic Prayer II
      Eucharistic Prayer III
      Eucharistic Prayer IV
The Communion Rite
The Concluding Rite

I was born after Vatican II. I have never attended a Latin Mass. But during the covid 19 lockdown of 2020, I have listened and watched a few Latin Masses by priests I know and follow. This little volume has been wonderful for following along and learning. 

This book is well put together and very reasonably priced. As can be seen from the few sample pages. It is an excellent little volume and though I pass on most of the CTS booklets I read this one will be staying in my collection. A great resource.
