Prayer as a foundation in the TLM
#1
I am looking for an article about how prayer is the foundation of the TLM and how prayer is used throughout the entire Mass.  After all, the Mass is the greatest form of prayer.

Does anyone know of a sermon/homily/article/etc. that would be able to explain this.

Thank you  :)

No particular article suggestion, however I might suggest taking a slightly different approach to the topic of prayer and the Mass. Start at the Mass rather than with prayer, as you note the Mass IS  a prayer, and as a matter of fact it is the most perfect prayer in history. It has often been said that the Mass is the "source and summit" of our Catholic lives, including our prayer life. Again, it's a small little inversion, but I think an important one: The Mass is the foundation of prayer.
