We have had two books donated which are shown and detailed below. Please let us know if you are interested in them. They will be available in the porch to view. We hope they go to a lovely home.
The first of the two books , the cover of which is shown alongside, is a detailed review of every aspect of the Mass from start to finish. It covers everything from the initial step onto the altar, through Liturgy, Offertory, Consecration to the Blessing at the end. It discusses meaning, action and history of each element that makes up the Mass as we know it. The book is probably written around the time that Mass was said in Latin, so there are some changes to what we now know is the Mass, but it is still an interesting book in itself.
The book itself has a validation from the Vatican at the front and is dated May 1952. If no-one is interested, then Father Gildea will keep it as part of the church archives.
The second of the two books is a version of the Holy Bible from 1955 and includes an introductory message from Pope Pius XII. The book includes both Old and New Testaments and is beautifully illustrated throughout with paintings and drawings depicting well known scenes from the life of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
The book is dated from 1958 and has the name of a Miss Jean Eales from Liverpool on the second page. It is a lovely Family Bible and is worthy of a good home. The centre section includes spaces for Births, Deaths and Marriages, some of which have been completed, however they have since been covered in the wonder that is typex so unfortunately not all of the history is visible. A treasure non the less.
