STK# 8209

Compiled by Angelus Press
There are three types of Baptism. No, I am not talking about water, blood and desire. Nor am I speaking of immersion, infusion and aspersion. For a normal infant baptism (infusion with water, technically speaking), I have witnessed, "chaotic baptism," "clueless baptism" and "orderly and intelligent baptism." What, you may ask, am I talking about?
In "chaotic baptism," there are generally a bunch of people and the priest shows up with two or three rituals - all of which are shared, tugged at or fought over by the attendees. At a "clueless baptism," there may be a few rituals present, perhaps some St. Andrew Daily Missals (with its incomplete Rite of Baptism) and those who are not fortunate enough to have one of the above stand silently and make as much sense of things as possible.
Lastly, "orderly and intelligent baptism." There is one essential ingredient, and that is that everyone in attendance have a copy of the Rite of Baptism in English and Latin. There are two sources for this. Ideally, one would flip to the Rite of Baptism in Angelus Press's 1962 Roman Catholic Daily Missal. Ahh - perfect. The whole rite to follow. You can even share with a neighbor...but hopefully not three or four!
Not everyone has the 1962 Roman Catholic Daily Missal, particularly guests who do not regularly attend the Latin Mass and so we have produced Baptism, which contains the entire Rite of Baptism.
Ideally, the church should make them available for use at baptisms, but otherwise, bring your own. Everything you need (and not just for observers, but also parents and godparents) is there. They are inexpensive enough that everyone can have one and fully concentrate on the rich ceremonial the Church provides for creating new members of the Mystical Body of Christ. Simply, I don't think I have ever been to a baptism where I would not have bought one of these books for everyone present, just so people could pray along with the Church with these beautiful prayers.
Chapters include: On Holy Baptism by Fr. Franz Schmidberger, Church Teaching About Baptism, The Ceremonies of Baptism, The Serious Obligations of Godparents, The Churching of Women, Blessing of a Woman after Childbirth and of Her Child, Consecration of a Child to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, The Rite for the Baptism of Adults, The Reception of Converts.

Calvary and The Mass
Bp. Fulton Sheen
STK# 8214

By Bishop Fulton J. Sheen.
In this 1936 work, then Msgr. Sheen takes Our Lord's seven last words from the Cross and correlates them to appropriate parts of the Mass - the sacramental representation of that same sacrifice. A fascinating book that will give you a new perspective on the Mass:
1)The Confiteor: Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
2) The Offertory: Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise.
3) The Sanctus: Woman, behold thy Son...Behold thy mother.
4) The Consecration: My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken me!
5) The Communion: I thirst.
6) Ite, Missa Est: It is finished.
7) The Last Gospel: Father, into Thy hands I commend my Spirit.
Bishop Sheen says, "Hence the Mass is to us the crowning act of Christian worship. A pulpit in which the words of our Lord are repeated does not unite us to Him; a choir in which sweet sentiments are sung brings us no closer to His Cross than to His garments. A temple without an altar of sacrifice is non-existent among primitive peoples, and is meaningless among Christians. And so in the Catholic Church the altar, and not the pulpit or the choir or the organ, is the center of worship, for there is re - enacted the memorial of His Passion." (from the Prologue).

Cranmers Godly Order
Michael Davies
STK# 3069

Cranmer's Godly Order
Liturgical Revolution: Vol. I
by Michael Davies
Michael Davies shows that Henry VIII and Thomas Cranmer understood that if you change the way people pray, then you will change what they believe. Cranmer's Book of Common Prayer (1549) began a process that changed the Catholic Church in England to the Anglican sect. Davies compares these changes to the modern liturgical "reforms" and the similarities are shocking.
Cranmer's Godly Order is a classic...revised and expanded by Mr. Davies during his final years. Drawing upon the best of Catholic and Protestant scholarship and on primary sources, Davies traces the steps by which the ancient Catholic Mass became the Lord's Supper in the Church of England. And these steps were changes - as Popes and Reformers alike were at pains to stress.
Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury under Henry VIII and Edward VI and architect of the new liturgy, was a master of the theology of the Mass, and hated it. The parallels between the Anglican liturgy and the New Mass of the 1960s will be uncomfortably obvious!
This book forms volume one of Davies's Liturgical Revolution series with volumes two and three due out by the end of 2008. Nowhere will you find a more thorough example of the axiom Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi est - "As you pray, so will you believe."
Cranmer's Godly Order sets the stage for the next two books of the Liturgical Revolution trilogy of which Volume Two (Pope Paul's New Mass) is again available.

Divine Office
Compiled by Angelus Press
STK# 6597

What does it gain a man to have his whole life perfectly organized but to lose his soul?
It's so easy to lose sight of God in our busy world. But the Church gave us the answer from the very beginning when she structured her official prayer around a framework of the psalms prayed eight times a day so that within one week, all 150 psalms are said.
Here you have the most critical hours of the Divine Office for the layman in the world. Prime is the perfect Morning Prayer, Compline the perfect night prayer, and Sext is for the middle of the day.
This is better than private prayer; it's the prayer of the entire Mystical Body because you pray with one heart with the millions of other clerics, religious and laymen around the world who have prayed and are praying these exact same prayers, AND because you adopt the intentions of the psalmist as you pray.
When understood correctly (this edition has a short explanation preceding each psalm), these are the intentions for which Holy Mother Church wants us to pray for ourselves, for the Church and for all the members of the Mystical Body of Christ.
Our Lord, our Lady, and the Saints prayed these psalms.
•An 11-page Introduction explaining the Divine Office and how to pray it, including guidelines on how to interpret the psalms in a Catholic manner
•Table of Contents
•The prayers to be said before and after reciting the Divine Office
•Melodies in Gregorian notation for those who chant the office in common.
•In timeless Latin with parallel English translations.
•Beautiful edition with sewn binding
•Leatherette cover
•Rounded edges
•Black text with rubrics in red
•Two ribbons
Includes everything for the Hours of Sunday Lauds, Prime, Sext, Vespers, and Compline; Prime, Sext, and Compline for each other day of the week.

How to Understand the Mass
Dom Gaspar Lefebvre

Low Key Accompaniment to the Vatican Kyriale
Achille P. Bragers
STK# 8302

This organ accompaniment book contains the necessary Kyriale Gregorian chants for the Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Agnus Dei, Ite missa est and more! This is a must-have for organists who play for the traditional Roman Mass! This organ accompaniment for Gregorian chant has in modern notation all of the standard Kyriale modes (I - XVIII), the Credo modes I-VI, and the Asperges (including one ad libitum) and Vidi Aquam modes. Includes responses made during sung Mass (e.g., Dominus vobiscum for the Preface, the Pater Noster, etc.) in both solemn and ferial tone, and even the pontifical blessing as given when a bishop celebrates. And for choirs that are not proficient enough yet to sing the propers of the Requiem Masses a cappelo, Bragers provided the accompaniments for their propers and Kyriale and the other funeral functions; i.e.: the entrance of the casket into the church, the absolution ceremony, and the In Paradisum.
Of course what accompaniment manual is complete without supplying some of the ad libitum modes for the Kyriale? Bragers published the cantus ad libitum modes for I - XI of the Kyrie, I - III and more ambrosiano of the Gloria, I - III of the Sanctus, and I & II of the Agnus Dei.
The organ notation is underscored by the Latin words, hyphenated under each appropriate note (which assists with proper pronunciation). Fully indexed, all notations and text are in printed in black ink on medium stock paper to ensure durability, while the comb-binding gives the organist easy and quick access.

Pope Pauls New Mass
Michael Davies
STK# 8424

Pope Paul’s New Mass is the third and final book of the Liturgical Revolution trilogy. It is the unparalleled history of how
the New Mass was devised, created, and implemented. Beyond this, a list of the manifold liturgical problems of the past generation is
documented: from Mass facing the people and revolutionary legislation to Communion in the hand and the problem of the Offertory. For over
thirty years this book has been considered the most thorough critique of the New Mass in the English language. Michael Davies, former
president of Una Voce, was one of the earliest critics of the liturgical changes in the Mass after Vatican II. Archbishop Lefebvre recommended
many of his early works, including the most comprehensive documentation and defense of the foundation of the SSPX: Apologia Pro Marcel
Lefevbre (in three volumes). The current president of Una Voce is Mr. Leo Darroch.
“By the mid-1970s the crisis within the Church was deepening. In his general research on the various novelties that were being introduced he
had amassed a huge amount of data on the Council and how the great majority of the Fathers had been deceived by the well-orchestrated plan of a
clique of European bishops and their liturgical advisers. Michael Davies argued that the Church’s attempted headlong rush into unity with other
Christian bodies would, in fact, have the adverse effect to that being proclaimed and was leading swiftly to its decline. Thus was born his great
trilogy, Liturgical Revolution. His first volume, Cranmer’s Godly Order (1976), examined the Protestant Reformation, what
happened and why. His second work, Pope John’s Council (1977), was written ‘to provide an objective and documented explanation of the fact
that the Church in the West is disintegrating and that the responsibility for this disintegration must be laid at the door of the Second Vatican
Council.’ His third volume, Pope Paul’s New Mass (1980), provided a detailed examination of the development of the Roman rite, the
liturgical legislation pouring out from the Vatican during and after the Council, the prayers and rubrics of the new rite of Mass, and the
devastating impact of the changes on the Church throughout the world.”–Leo Darroch, President of Una Voce International
Benedict XVI, on the Death of Michael Davies “I have been profoundly touched by the news of the death of Michael Davies. I had the good
fortune to meet him several times and I found him to be a man of deep faith and ready to embrace suffering. Ever since the Council he put all his
energy into the service of the Faith and left us important publications especially on the sacred liturgy. Even though he suffered from the Church
in many ways in his time, he always truly remained a man of the Church. He knew that the Lord founded His Church on the rock of Peter and
that the Faith can find its fullness and maturity only in union with the successor of St. Peter. Therefore we can be confident that the Lord
opened wide for him the gates of Heaven. We commend his soul to the Lord’s mercy.” — Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, 2004

Marriage Mass Booklet
STK# 3001C

Ordinary of the Nuptial Mass with Marriage Ceremony and the Nuptial Blessing in Latin and English. With Instruction before and after the Marriage ceremony.
52 pp. Softcover.

Serving at the Altar CD
STK# 3080

An instructional aid for those learning to serve the Tridentine Latin Mass (low Mass only). Serving at Holy Mass is a time-honored privilege for Catholic young men. The Altar Server has the opportunity to assist the priest at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass by reciting prayers and performing functions which are usually reserved to an ordained Acolyte. Because serving at Holy Mass is such a sacred act, it is important for the Altar Server to learn his duties well and to perform then with great reverence and devotion.
Serving at the Altar will assist the Altar Server in two very important ways: Latin pronunciation and proper actions within the sanctuary. The CD for Latin pronunciation and the booklet for server's training are meant to be used together. Reviewing this material often will help the Altar Server remember his important and sacred duties and make his actions at the altar an edification for the faithful who see him and a special blessing for himself.
Includes a 52 page booklet, audio CD and a laminated serving card. All in a molded plastic case with color jacket.

The Battleground: Syria and Palestine, The Seed Plot of Religion
Hilaire Belloc
STK# 8425

In this religious-biblical oriented history, Belloc provides a full and fair treatment of the ancient Jews and other Middle Eastern cultures
and their impact in history, and in today’s world. He affirms a special divine design in the story of Syria and particularly of Israel,
reaching a climax in the event of the Crucifixion of Christ. His famous motto, “Europe is the Faith, the Faith is Europe” has been interpreted
as a form of religious ethnocentrism. But he was making the point that what we regard as the greatest cultural, political and artistic
achievements of Western civilization stem from the old creed. Without the one, the other would not exist.

The Mass of All Time
Abp. Marcel Lefebvre
STK# 8249

The Mass of All Time
by Abp. Marcel Lefebvre, Edited by Fr. Patrick Troadec, FSSPX
"During the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, revelation, the mysteries of Faith, the mysteries of the Incarnation and the Redemption, are made real. From the Mass, the liturgical and unbloody re-presentation of Christ's sacrifice on the Cross, the efficacy of all good works proceeds." –Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre
The Mass of All Time is a collection of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre's sermons, classes and notes on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass...a compendium of what he taught on the Mass - its rites, spirit, prayers, theology, spirituality, and grace. Many of these texts have never been published before.
Fr. Patrick Troadec, rector of the Society of St. Pius X's seminary in Flavigny, France, collected and organized the Archbishop's manifold writings and speeches on the Mass and presents them here, in two parts.
Part one is a running commentary, gleaned from all the works of the Archbishop, on the prayers, parts and actions of the liturgy. Part two covers the New Order of Mass promulgated by Pope Paul VI in 1969 and includes commentary on liturgical history, the liturgical revolution and the history of the SSPX's defense of the old and rejection of the new. Again, the words are those of Archbishop Lefebvre, woven together by Fr. Troadec.
The Archbishop is known for his courageous defense of the Tridentine Mass but never before have his insights been collected in such an accessible and complete format. Especially now, with a renewed interest in the "extraordinary form" due to the Holy Father's motu proprio, this book is ideally timed because it is primarily a "positive" book coming from him who is too often known as the "Rebel" or "Renegade" Archbishop.
Here we see the love and depth of understanding that Marcel Lefebvre had for the Mass of all time. Polemics are not excluded, but they take a back seat in this volume. With the release of the motu proprio, it seems there has never been a more ideal time for traditionalists AND those new to the "Old" Mass to see this side of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre...indeed, the more important side as it was his love of truth and the Mass as handed on to him that fueled his battle to defend it.
The following review by the internationally recognized liturgical scholar, Dr. Alcuin Reid is well worth a read.
Historically and Theologically Important Material, February 11, 2008
by Alcuin Reid
Archbishop Lefebvre has been the great 'persona non grata' of the modern Catholic Church. Now that in the pontificate of Benedict XVI we are more or less 'speaking again' as it were, it may well be time to look anew at what the Archbishop had to say in that tumultuous period of the Church's recent history which was the late twentieth century.
Angleus Press has published a compilation of the writings and discourses of Archbishop Lefebrve on the theology and spirituality of the Mass and on the liturgical reform that followed the Second Vatican Council. The former has value as a compilation of classical spirituality. The latter - of particular interest personally - puts together the Archbishop's observations on the liturgical reform. How many people know that he was in favour of the vernacular for the readings at Mass, and indeed for most of the first part of the Mass called the Mass of Catechumens? And how many know how and when he began to react against the implementation of the reform enacted in the name of the Council, of which he was a Father?
One regret is that the editor has compiled the second part of the book thematically and not chronologically: it would, in my opinion, be more useful as historical material in the latter format for, thematically arranged, it is too easy to read on without noticing that at times the footnotes indicate a jump of many years back and forth.
The Archbishop speaks forthrightly. Indeed, there is language here that is clearly polemical and perhaps even reactionary: the years in which he raised his voice were extraordinary times and we may well find that we do not agree with the words he chose or the decisions he took. We may even quibble with his recollection of events or debate his understanding of theology. Yet, in days when honest dialogue and reappraisal of the events following the Council are now permissible, it is instructive to have Archbishop Lefebvre's words to hand.
Unfortunately Archbishop Lefebvre never lived to see Pope Benedict's liberation of the more ancient form of the Mass in July 2007. But as the usus antiquior gradually claims its rightful place in the Church of today and of tomorrow we would do well to consider that - humanly and historically speaking at least - it may not be able to do so today were it not for the reaction of the Archbishop and of his disciples then. For the Providence of Almighty God we may be thankful.

The Sign of the Cross
Msgr. Gaume
STK# 8237

The holy Sign of the Cross is the most important prayer and symbol of our Catholic faith. It is at once the image of Christ's passion, the sign of the redemption of all mankind, the awesome testament of the destruction of the power of the devil and of his kingdom on earth. The resurrection is the promise and seal and guarantee of eternal life which consummated the work of the Cross.
Christians rejoice and the demons tremble to see the Sign of the Cross emblazoned everywhere as proof of Christ's victory over the world. Christ said "all power is given to me in heaven and on earth" and the Cross is the seat of that power. There is no place on earth where a person who makes the Sign of the Cross is not immediately recognized as a Catholic, and there is no miracle that has not been worked under this sign. It is the "nuclear bomb" of prayers and with it the faithful can clear away all enemies and temptations with the simplest of wordless gestures.
Msgr. Gaume has compiled a magnificent collection of history and commentary from the saints and fathers and doctors, as well as his own meditations and exhortations regarding this most powerful prayer. An entire book on the Sign of the Cross might seem boring - trust me, it is absolutely fascinating. You will never make this holy sign in haste again.
