My father died a few months back. I had the privilege of reading this to him on his deathbed, much like St. Alphonsus had it read to him on his. That experience, as well as using it for spiritual reading as I’ve grieved, has only heightened my appreciation for this essay.
The Heresy of Formlessness was an instant classic when it was originally published in 2003. Now Martin Mosebach is releasing a new edition with six new chapters and a new forward. I haven’t had the good fortune of reading it myself, but I have not heard one bad word about it from any Catholic I respect.
“The Heresy of Formlessness remains the preeminent apologia for the cause of the Traditional Mass.”–STUART CHESSMAN
Benedícta sit sancta Trínitas atque indivísa Unitas: confitébimur ei, quia fecit nobíscum misericórdiam suam.
