Bargain Priced Books :: Holy Sacrifice of The Mass

by | Oct 28, 2017 | Bargain Books, Catechism, Latin Mass | 2 comments

For a few days last month St. Augustine Academy Press offered their recently republished Highway to Heaven Catechism series at 40% off! Book Six in the series wasn’t available yet, but it is now!

Produced by the Marquette University Institute of Catechetical Research under the editorship of Edward A. Fitzpatrick in the 1930’s, the Highway to Heaven series of Religion textbooks is a breath of fresh air. Unashamed love of the Catholic Faith is evident on every page.

Full of beautiful black and white illustrations, The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the Sixth Grade text in the series. It studies the Traditional Latin Mass with particular attention toward helping young people learn to use the Missal.

Unlike the other books in this series, which we reproduced directly from the originals, we have retypeset this volume. This was because we needed to combine elements of two different editions: the original 1937 edition (which, like the rest of the series, used the unrevised Baltimore Catechism) and the 1949 edition (which added a chapter on the priesthood that was very much worth adding). In melding these two editions, we took the opportunity to improve the illustrations as well, which were mostly aged photographs.

Now for a limited time you can order your copy of Book Six of the Highway to Heaven Catechism series for 40% off AND save 25% on the rest of the series!

Note: No coupon code is necessary. Simply placing any of the books from the Highway to Heaven series in your cart will trigger this discount. Hurry though, offer expires at midnight on Sunday, October 29, 2017.

    My son just expressed interest in serving at the Latin Extraordinary Form mass in our community and I remembered some posts you had put up long ago (I think your husband was an alter server trainer and you've mentioned your boys are alter servers) so I wanted to see if you could point me in the right direction for training materials online that are great?

    Thank you so much, Jessica! I ordered the whole set of books after seeing them on your blog (and I LOVE them!), but was disappointed that Book 6 wasn't available. So happy that I'll have the complete set now. I also ordered a few bottles of Lisieux nail polish and love that, too! Many thanks for all of your great recommendations. By the way, your little cherub is absolutely beautiful! God love you, Missy Nesbitt Dallas, TX

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
