About the Book

Holy Things, Holy Actions, Holy Places is a Catholic-oriented book whose main object is to introduce to and teach readers about the names and uses of various objects, vessels, substances, and garments used in our beautiful Catholic Liturgy and other services. The format is very simple, and the language is easy for anyone, young or old, to read and understand. Many Catholics attend church services and observe the use of these objects, substances, and garments but do not know their names or the purpose of their use. The book has therefore been written to encourage and to teach Catholic Christians and any interested others 1. to get to know the names of these items used in the Catholic Liturgy and ceremonies, 2. to understand the religious significance of each item and the reason for its use, either in the liturgy or privately, 3. to assist in the faith formation of young and even older persons, and 4. to encourage Catholics, young and old and those in between, to pay more attention to and to appreciate our rich and beautiful Catholic religion, ceremonies, and treasures.

About the Author

Four of the women are retired educators, two are retired secretaries and the seventh and only one who is currently employed, is an administrative manager. The members are active in their parish community serving in various ministries such as the parish council, catechetics, extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist and members of various confraternities. They are all members of The Cursillio Movement the central aim of which is evangelization They are dedicated to building an understanding of Catholic teaching to young people in particular, especially through writing. Their first publication, entitled, ‘Priceless Treasure’ is a narrative which highlights the Eucharist as the core of Catholic doctrine. In this second work, the authors focus on the significance of sacramentals which consist of holy things, holy actions and holy places all of which are associated with Roman Catholic liturgy. The writing is presented with simplicity and clarity and though the aim is to offer instruction to young people, the work provides information for people of all ages including practicing Catholics as well as non Catholics who might be curious about the significance of those sacramentals to the religious life of Roman Catholics.
