Recommended Reading


       Here are some books and materials on the Catholic Faith, especially concerning the Extraordinary Form of the Mass that are recommended by the members of Una Voce of Northeast Florida.


Scripture and Catechisms:

The Holy Bible:  Some of us use the Douay Rheims that was published several years before the King James Version. However, not everyone can understand the language so for those who may not want to use 16th century English, the Revised Standard Version that Ignatius puts out is pretty good. 

The Catechism of the Council of Trent:  after over 500 years, this Catechism is still one of the best around.  It gives good commentary on the readings of Scripture throughout the year.

The Baltimore Catechism:  the top catechism for teaching kids, new Catholics, and adults alike.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church:  contrary to what some say about it, it isn't to difficult to read and it upholds all the teachings of Holy Mother Church.  It is highly recommended.
