Item Description...
Overview
Whether you are a lifelong Catholic, convert, or non-Catholic involved with Catholic friends, or family, this book provides a practical guide to help you do all the right things in any Catholic liturgical situation.

Publishers Description
All this information should have been in a book long ago. Should non-Catholics sit during the Consecration? What should you serve for dinner on a Friday during Lent? Even lifelong Catholics will find the book eminently useful, and newer Catholics will find it indispensable. "Simple, informed, and delightfully engaging, " says Father Richard John Neuhaus.

Should be called "How Non-Catholic etiquette shapes white American Catholicism"  Jul 25, 2007
I bought this book for help in raising my own children. For this, I found it somewhat limited. There are a handful of useful bits of information to put into practice. But, mostly, in reading it, I was a bit put off by Kay Lynn Isca's strong opinions about proper and improper, opinions that I suspect were formed somewhere in her life and upbringing, but not inside the Church. From my perspective, this book is really an illustration about how the values, opinions, ethical ideas, and etiquette of a specific community in a time and place (oh, probably contemporary Indiana or somthing similar) have influenced a certain kind of mainstream middle class Catholicism. Throughout the book, Ms. Isca distinguishes between what she calls "ethnic churches" (generally, any Catholic community that doesn't conform to her standards of etiquette) and "mainstream churches". While in my family we attend a "mainstream" church (if by mainstream, she means, mass in English, majority of parish members are white, middle to upper class, in a parish located in a predominantly non-Catholic city), my wife and I each come from what Ms. Isca would consider fringe, marginal "ethnic churches" (her term) and have participated in parishes that are not islands surrounded by a sea of Protestantism, both in the US and abroad. As a result, I found myself over and over reading her descriptions of certain aspects of her experience in American catholicism and saying to myself "not so fast. Not necessarily." or "Not in my opinion" The important thing to keep in mind is that Catholicism is not an American church, but a universal church. From Italy, to Gabon, to Mexico, to Quebec to Australia, one is bound to find variations in what Ms. Isca calls "Catholic etiquette." The title of Ms. Isca's book is misleading, in that it suggests that what Ms. Isca describes as "right" is necessarily a "rite." Much of what Ms. Isca considers "right" catholicism is definitely note a rule of the Church but is rather a reflection of contemporary American social attitudes finding their way into the church itself (for example, her comments on children and the church). (Ms. Isca seems to acknowledge as much when she recognizes that some "ethnic churches" might tolerate some otherwise unacceptable etiquette, but it is definitely "wrong" in her Catholic etiquette. My point is that what Ms. Isca's notions of right and wrong in Church are much more a symptom and reflection of what self-identified "mainstream" Americans think about Catholicism than it is a reflection of what is universally "Catholic" about Catholic etiquette.
 
Catholic Etiquette  Nov 4, 2006
I was very pleased with the book. It helped me to understand what is going on and I didn't feel that everyone was watching me.
 
VERY DISAPPOINTED  Sep 22, 2006
I STARTED TO READ THE BOOK WITH MUCH ENTHUSIASM, WHICH QUICKLY CAME TO A HALT. THE AUTHOR BREEZED OVER THE REALLY IMPORTANT PARTS OF MASS SUCH AS THE EUCHARIST, COMMUNION, WHAT MASS IS ALL ABOUT AND EXTENDED THE CHAPTERS ON PLANNING WEDDINGS, AND PARTIES FOR WEDDINGS, BAPTISMS, COMMUNION, ETC. THE AUTHOR NEVER GOT INTO WHAT EACH RITE OF PASSAGE IS ALL ABOUT, WHY WE CELEBRATE THE RITE. I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT WHY WE DO THE THINGS WE DO IN CHURCH, NOT HOW TO PLAN THE PARTY AFTER THE WEDDING OR BAPTISM. I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS BOOK AND WISH I COULD GET MY MONEY BACK. IF YOU WANT A MORE IN DEPTH EXPLANATION FOR WHY WE DO THE THINGS WE DO IN CHURCH AND WHAT MASS IS ALL ABOUT, THIS IS NOT THE BOOK FOR YOU.
 
For Generation X  Jul 8, 2006
Catechesis in the seventies and eighties left out much of the reasons for our Catholic Traditions and this text helps fill in some of the gaps! It's light reading but very informative.

Catholic Etiquette  Mar 26, 2006
As a converted Catholic, there were many things that were never explained to me. This book breaks it down in simple and understandable language. This book has been extremely helpful to me.
