A Roman Missal Study Edition and Workbook

Essential Presidential Prayers and Texts: A Roman Missal Study Edition and Workbook provides pastoral commentary and proclamation tips to aid priest celebrants in confidently praying the revised words of the Mass. Rev. Daniel Merz and Abbot Rooney provide background and scriptural references as well as guidance on words to emphasize, when to pause in the prayers, and the pace at which to recite the prayers. This resource will aid priest celebrants in leading the congregation in full, active, and conscious participation during Mass.
