Book Review: The Celebration of Mass: A Study of the Rubrics of the Roman Missal

I have for many years now had a copy of "The Celebration of Mass: A Study of the Rubrics of the Roman Missal" by John O'Connell on my bookshelf.  The book itself is a beautiful product and it sits next to the Holy Scriptures on my shelf. I have finally gotten around to writing a review on this book.

Who is this book for?  If you consider yourself a Liturgist or you just love the Traditional Latin Mass and want to help parishes start celebrating it then this book is a must-have!  Have you ever had an unusual liturgy question?  With chapters (not just sections) devoted to topics such as "Mass Celebrated in the Presence of a Greater Prelate," "The Low Mass of a Bishop," "Mass without a server," and "Votive Masses," this is the most complete volume on the Liturgy ever produced.

For those of you who wish to have as a resource the rubrics for the 1962 Missal, this is an absolute must have!  I have owned this copy since 2008 and have turned to it on multiple occasions.
