Just in Time for the Pope's First Visit to the US and Fall Travel to Italy: 'The Mass: English/Italian'

Share Article

Live in Italy Now announces the release of a handy Kindle guide to the Mass for English-speaking Catholic and non-Catholic travelers to Italy and those who wish to follow Pope Francis as he celebrates Mass.

On the eve of his arrival, millions of New Yorkers, Pennsylvanians and Washingtonians will eagerly look forward to welcome Pope Francis on his inaugural visit to the United States. While he is scheduled to celebrate Mass at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, and the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul in Philadelphia, the high point of his trip will be the celebration of Holy Mass at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Millions, not fortunate to be in the Garden Friday evening (September 26), will follow Pope Francis on TV and mobile devices, just as many Catholics watch him throughout the year, when he celebrates Mass at St.Peter's Basilica in Rome on Catholic networks. "Designed for English-speaking travelers to Italy," art dealer and publication editor, Jacqueline Cable, said today, "Amazon/Kindle's new release, 'The Mass: English/Italian,' is also the perfect guide for anyone who would like to follow what takes place during Mass, whether from a distance, or firsthand in the Garden, if they are among the lucky few to celebrate with the Pope."

Ms. Cable continued, "Pope Francis speaks very little English; his first language is Spanish, and in his 'official' role as Bishop of Rome, he usually prays Holy Mass in Italian." The Papal visit is a sure bet to stimulate travel to Rome and Italy this fall and next spring. This handy travel companion, "The Mass: English/Italian," is presented in small bite-sized sections of American English and Italian, with simple directions to make Catholic rituals (e.g. when to stand, sit or kneel) easy-to-follow. Responses for Priest and people are clearly indicated, frequently used Italian words are featured in a Pronunciation Guide with the nearest possible sounds in American English, and a quick reference to the Mass in Italian with English sub-headings completes the guide.

Italy's most prized treasures still adorn countless churches, cathedrals, basilicas, and abbeys, so a traveler in search of art cannot escape the daily prayer of the Church prayed throughout the day. Often, one can find no missals, prayer books or guides to the Mass, and certainly not in English; this guide makes the Mass accessible to all and easy-to-follow.

Cable concludes, "You don't have to travel to Italy to make use of 'The Mass: English/Italian,' when the present occasion provides a rare opportunity to closely follow Pope Francis several times in the coming days as he celebrates Holy Mass."
