With an Introduction by Archbishop Samuel J Aquila. The profound wisdom found in this Romano Guardini classic will help you to quiet your soul, concentrate your mind, and grow more receptive to God's grace in the Holy Mass. Written for ordinary Catholics who are struggling to become closer to Christ, Meditations Before Mass is full of wisdom and yet offers practical, straightforward advice that will help you overcome distractions and restlessness while leading you into a more enriching experience when you enter into Holy Communion with God. Over fifty years ago, Msgr. Romano Guardini resolved to help his parishioners move beyond the petty hindrances to full participation in the Mass-hindrances to which we are all prone. Just before Mass each Sunday, he gave a brief talk on some aspect of the Mass, teaching them week by week, topic by topic, how to prepare themselves to participate more prayerfully. So helpful were these 32 talks that they were soon published and have since been reprinted countless times in numerous countries and languages, helping generations of Catholics to deepen their devotion during Mass. In these pages, you'll discover:

What to do when Mass becomes boring and "routine"

How to achieve a genuine-not superficial-stillness

The one indispensible element for a deep liturgical life

How to gain control over your wandering attention

One tendency we must overcome when listening to Scripture readings

The real meaning of "keeping holy" the Sabbath-and its special importance for the family

The importance of listening, and the inner barriers that prevent it

Why it's good to arrive early at Mass whenever possible

The true significance of standing and kneeling in church

And dozens of other practical ways to enrich your worship

Although he was an eminent theologian, Msgr. Guardini wrote for ordinary Catholics who are struggling to become closer to Christ. Practical, straightforward, yet full of wisdom, Meditations Before Mass will help you to quiet your soul, concentrate your mind, and grow more receptive to grace.
