The Mass for Children


Available on backorder


by Rev. William R. Kelly

Originally published in 1925 by Benzinger Brothers, this 2014 reprint is a welcome addition to our children’s selection.

Since the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the central act of Catholic worship, it should be well understood and appreciated by all the faithful. It has always seemed a formidable task to explain it, especially to children, because there is so much involved–language, ritual, action, symbolism, vestments, and everything else that makes the Traditional Latin Mass a heaven-inspired ceremony.

Fr. William Kelly possessed a gift for approaching the mind and heart of the child that allowed him to present the sublime mysteries of the Mass in a most appealing way.

Written in the 1920’s, this is an easy to understand explanation with simple language and compelling stories, making the Holy Sacrifice better known and better loved by Catholic children far and wide.

Softcover, 4 3/8″ x 7″, 35 color illustrations, 56 pp.
