Introduction to the Order of Mass

by USCCB Publishing

A Pastoral Resource of the Bishops' Committee on the Liturgy Committee on the Liturgy

An essential resource for "liturgical formation of the People of God," Introduction to the Order of Mass offers a detailed guide to the celebration of Mass, from introductory to concluding rites. An accompaniment to the General Instruction of the Roman Missal, the pastoral Introduction provides scriptural and historical context for the acts, objects, materials, symbols, rites, and prayers of the Mass-and in so doing helps all reach fuller and more active participation. As the Introduction makes clear, the celebration of Mass is "the work of the whole body of Christ; the ministers and other members of the congregation have a part in the action and a contribution to make." Whether a priest or deacon, lector or liturgical musician, server, usher, or among the gathered assembly, Introduction to the Order of Mass provides the insight, guidance, and specific suggestions on how each may enrich his understanding and participation in that most glorious of celebrations, "for the good of the whole and for the glory of God."
