New Series: The Symbolism of the Traditional Form of Holy Mass with articles by Fr. François Xavier Schouppe, S.J. This series is primarily directed towards those with a particular devotion to the usus antiquus of the Latin Rite who wish to explore its rich mystical symbolism. But it will be of interest to all Catholics who seek to deepen their understanding of the Most Holy Sacrifice. Learning the language of Catholic symbolism present in the Mass is a great way to develop a vibrant and active participation. Installments will follow on a weekly basis.
