 and some good pieces of reading material concerning the changes in the missal that will be used next Advent:

In this handy publication author Edward Sri takes the reader on an exciting tour of the liturgy. Based on the revised translation of the Mass which goes into effect Advent, 2011, it explores the biblical roots of the words and gestures we experience in Mass and explains their profound significance.

Starting with the introductory rites and the siging in the name of the Trinity we read about how the sextions of the mass; it’s prayers, gestures, responses, rituals and sacred moments connect back to the earliest of Old testament times and the times of Jesus and the Apostles in the New Testament.

A must for any Catholic who wants to delve deeper into understanding the Mass and it’s new translation of the Missal.
