The Mass Explained to Children

Maria Montessori

Christ's teaching about children touches the very core of their education; children have a different personality from ours, and spiritual impulses are alive in them, which may be atrophied in the grown man. We must always keep this fact in mind so that we may be prepared not only to offer children the noblest teaching, but to offer it in a worthy form. In this little book Maria Montessori teaches the children about the meaning of the Catholic Mass, what is necessary for the Mass, the Mass of the Catechumens and the Mass of the Faithful.
