We love bringing our readers special discounts on items that they can't get anywhere else. And today, we have a great one, from Romanitas Press. In fact, you can't even get this on the Romanitas website -- only here, at Rorate.
“…John, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas, Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Felicitas, Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia…”
We invoke these saintly names at every Mass during the Roman Canon -- as well as others throughout the Ordinary -- but who are they? And why is it important to pray for their intercession during the Holy Sacrifice?
Just in time for Lent is a wonderful little gem, The Saints Who Pray with Us in the Mass, that Romanitas Press has reprinted that explains these theological and spiritual points, while providing a brief sketch about each saint named.
Written by Archbishop Amleto Cicognani (America’s longest-serving Apostolic Delegate) and published only once in 1958, this new reprint has been produced as an enlarged edition to include:• A biography about the eminent author,
• An entry for St. Joseph,
• Ancient artistic representations from the photography of Fr. Lawrence Lew, O.P.,
• An appendix featuring the Latin/English texts of the 1962 Missale Romanum,
• And another appendix of extracts from the Roman Martyrology for each mentioned saint.
This book should be in the home of every Catholic and also makes a great gift -- one that never stops giving.
Now, for a limited time (till March 11, 2017; midnight CST), our readers can purchase The Saints Who Pray with Us in the Mass for only $9.00 -- that’s a savings of 25%..
