To better understand the underlying meaning and principles of the Catholic mass, lay catholics are recommended to read ‘Sacrosanctum Concilium’ which guides readers through the general principles of the mass from the Introductory Rites, to the Liturgy of the Word, the Eucharistic Prayer, the Communion Rite and the Dismissal. The document has been described as “an easy read” (Mary Clavin, MTh – Liturgy), and is just 19 pages in length (PDF).
