Includes “The Tridentine Mass–AND HOW TO SAY/PRAY IT”, a step by step instructional video on how to say the Traditional Latin Mass, an instructional book with the text of the video combined with historical antecdotes, and a copy of a Latin-English Booklet Missal.

Produced in Ireland in 1991, this video was written, directed and narrated by Mr. Kieron Wood, a journalist for Ireland’s National Broadcasting Service. The Mass was filmed in color in historic St. Paul’s Church in Dublin. The video details the history and importance of the Mass in Catholic worship. It shows the vestments-the cincture, the maniple, the chasuble, the amice, the alb-and explains their use in the Mass. It highlights the richness and meaning of the prayers and the rituals.

For 1500 years Catholics worshipped God in this way. Become part of that tradition! This film is an outstanding, spiritually-uplifting gift for any occasion-birthday, graduation, Confirmation, Ordination. Put yourself in touch with the full splendor of our Catholic heritage!
