520    "At the crest of volatile years of experimentation, a new 
       rite of Mass was introduced in 1969--no mere cosmetic 
       treatment but a radical reconstruction of the Church's 
       central act of worship. A minority of the faithful 
       continued to hold fast to the traditional rite, which John
       Paul II and Benedict XVI gradually freed from 
       restrictions. The steady growth of this "traditionalist" 
       movement inevitably prompts questions in the minds of more
       and more people. What is it that Catholic laity, clergy, 
       and religious are discovering and falling in love with? 
       Could you--should you--be among them? In this engaging 
       book, Peter Kwasniewski draws on decades of experience and,
       presuming no specialized knowledge, explains why the 
       traditional Mass operates the way it does, what its 
       distinctive features and benefits are, and how it still 
       captures hearts with a beauty deeply rooted and 
       perennially green. Every reader--whether already a lover 
       of the Mass of Ages or a complete newbie, whether 
       committed or curious, perplexed or skeptical, sitting on 
       the fence or bouncing back and forth between old and new--
       will find life-changing in these pages."--Back cover
