Description:

Originally published in 1960, Angelus Press was fortunate enough to acquire and sell thousands of originals in years past until those supplies dried up. We have now reprinted this classic in stunning full color.

An interesting feature: The missal section has 12 illustrations to help the child follow the main parts of the Mass. The priest is shown in each, but the reredos behind the altar has a DIFFERENT image in each picture. The image on the reredos is from the life of Our Lord or the Apostles and reflects what the action of the priest represents. For example, at the Offertory, Our Lord is shown being scourged. At the Lavabo, Pilate is shown washing his hands. At the elevation, Our Lord is shown being lifted on the Cross. A thoughtful child, with a little instruction, could be lead to a profound understanding of the Mass from these details alone.
