Treasure and Tradition: The Ultimate Guide to the Latin Mass

I just found a fantastic book.   It's a guide to the Tridentine Mass that has clear black and white drawings that explain what everything is on the altar, what the priest has on and why and what the Mass is.  It also has gorgeous photos of each part of the Mass and shows the words of the Mass in two ways. First you can see the Latin words with the English translation right underneath and if that doesn't work for you the author, Lisa Bergman has the parts of the Mass in English alone on the same page. Another very helpful feature is a chart a the front and the back that helps you find your place should you get "lost" during Mass. The book is absolutely beautiful to look at and it's a hardback which makes it durable and a lovely gift for someone. Rocky was fascinated just leafing through it and I've learned so much.  Thank you Lisa Bergman!
