by Fr. Michael Muller, 1884
This unique book was written to give Catholics an appreciation of the value of the Mass. Fr. Michael Muller considers the true Mass from every conceivable angle, showing it to be the central aspect of our faith, and in the process he touches on virtually every important facet of our faith, explaining how it is tied to this supreme sacrifice. Containing a wealth of Catholic traditions, Biblical facts, and enthralling, true stories from history and the lives of the Saints, this 18th century masterpiece is a must read for all traditional Catholics.
Who are those that will remain firm in their faith in those days of unheard-of tribulation? Who will not be conquered, but will fight the good battle of the Lord? They will be those especially who, in the course of their life, assisted regularly at Mass with fervor and devotion. We have seen how the early Christians prepared themselves for their severe trials, by assisting at, and partaking of, the sacred mysteries. They knew that it was only from the Lamb of God, sacrificed on the altar, that they could receive that heroic courage which was requisite to sacrifice all, even their own lives, for the sake of Him who sacrificed Himself upon their altars. In like manner Catholics who will live in the days of Antichrist and have heard Mass regularly, will be endowed with a strength supernatural to baffle all the efforts of the son of perdition and his infernal agents to make them apostatize and to pass over to his army.--pages 497 - 498
