New book from Vatican offers resources for priests on celebrating Mass

The Congregation for Divine Worship has completed a new volume, the <i>Compendium Eucharisticum</i>, designed to help priests celebrate Mass with proper reverence. The compendium, prepared at the request of Pope Benedict XVI, includes prayers, theological texts, and other study materials. Cardinal Antonio Canizares, the prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship, said the volume offers “everything that may be useful for the correct understanding, celebration, and adoration of the sacrament of the altar.” The text has been published in Italian; an English-language translation is forthcoming.
