by Mark Searle (published by Liturgical Press, Collegeville, Minnesota, 1981)
This classic little volume is an extremely readable guide to the liturgy. Mark Searle walks us through the Mass from beginning to end, starting with the entrance hymn and the introductory rites and concluding with the final blessing. He goes into further detail when explaining the various aspects of the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist. The final chapter is a guide for those entrusted with the task of planning liturgy. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter could be used as a reflection tool with a confirmation group studying the Mass, a liturgy planning committee, or as part of an adult education series.
