This book aims to give enough Latin to understand the principal Church Offices and Devotions. The first part covers the Latin useful to choir members, altar servers and for anyone attending Mass and Benediction. The second part goes into a bit more depth to bring the student to a level where he can translate Latin from the Mass and Office with the aid of the Little Dictionary in the back of the book. A Short Latin Grammar is included.
The author is a renowned translator and poet, most famous for his hymns including Jesus the Very Thought of Thee, When Morning Gilds the Skies, Glory Be to Jesus, See Amid the Winter Snow and many others. In this book, however, the translations are strictly word-for-word literal.
