This manual systematical outlines the general principles of the Roman Rite as they apply to altar servers (inferior ministers). It is also an instructive guide for any Catholic who wishes to better understand the ceremonial actions.

The general principles are the foundation for all rubrics of the Roman Rite which regulate the types of reverences and gestures, the reasons why they are made, and how under certain conditions. Even more profoundly, it is through these principles that the unique character of Romanitas is impressed upon its namesake liturgical rite.

Upon systematically learning these principles, the reader will have the distinct advantage of never being at a loss during a ceremony of when to bow or genuflect and of what kind. This is particularly valuable, as most rubrical manuals presume the reader is already acquainted with these basic, but often subtle rules.

Experience in teaching ceremonies has shown that the easiest approach to a new ceremony is through its principles. Mastering the principles of a ceremony is not only the easiest way to learn one ceremony, but it also makes the mastery of that ceremony the preparation for learning others.
