Written by Maureen A. Kelly and based in part on Paul Turner's book for adults, Understanding the Revised Mass Texts, this resource explains the changes in the Mass texts at a very simple level so that children who have already learned the parts of the Mass, the prayers and responses, and have received first Holy Communion will understand the changes in the texts and be able to respond at Mass.
This book includes
- the new prayers and responses,
- explanations of the words,
- the parts of the Mass and their meaning,
- color photos.
This book may be used by children in third through seventh grades. As the companionto What’s New about the Mass, a Teaching Edition was designed to assist in responding to questionsand helping children understand the Mass and our most important prayer as Catholic Christians.
