Many Catholics have heard by now that certain changes will be instituted later this year in the ordinary form of the Mass. Pastors across the country may want to provide their parishioners with Dr. Edward Sri's A Guide to the New Translation of The Mass, a "low-cost [$1.95], handy question-and-answer booklet [that] addresses the important changes taking place in the Liturgy. The new responses of the Mass are laid out in an easy-to-follow format, while questions about the reasons for the changes and the effect they will have are answered and explained. Included is an invaluable tear-out pew card that details the old vs. the new prayers and responses for the laity."

Below is an excerpt from the booklet, which can be ordered at GuidetotheMass.com. Thanks to Matthew Pinto of Ascension Press for allowing me to reprint this material.
