Learning the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite

A Manual for Seminarians & Priests

60 pages (8.5" x 11" Booklet), Color on every page, Glossy cover

This is the most popular booklet ever for learning the Traditional Latin Mass (1962 Missale Romanum). One does not have to be an expert in the rubrics to understand Father Schmitz's lessons in learning the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. While his text is straightforward it is also accurate and succinct.

This newly typeset edition of Fr. Schmitz's guide for priests and seminarians in learning the Tridentine Latin Mass features red ink for rubrics, blue ink for footnotes, and black ink for the text of the Mass and for other instructions.

Dedicated with profound admiration and gratitude to the Most Reverend John M. McNamara, D.D., Auxillary Bishop of Washington, who rejoices that he has ordained more than two thousand men to stand at the altar of God.
