The Mass is the center of our Faith. But do we really worship that way? It’s easy to go on auto-pilot. We know the gestures, responses, and prayers…too well. This rote participation can bury the significance of what’s happening during the liturgy. If you’ve ever walked out of Mass feeling like you just didn’t “get anything” from it, the value of A Biblical Walk Through the Mass can’t be over emphasized.
In A Biblical Walk Through the Mass you will come to know and understand the Mass like never before. See, perhaps for the first time, why we say what we say, and do what we do as Catholics. With freshly awakened eyes of faith, the words and gestures will be seen in a new light, leading to a richer, more fruitful worship experience.
Much has changed with the new Missal—parishioners are learning new responses, a new Gloria, and a new Creed. We are hearing the priest using liturgical phrases and responses different from those they have heard for the past forty years. The changes to the Mass can be a remarkable time of renewal and an opportunity for succinct catechetical instruction and guidance on how to tap into limitless spiritual reservoir the Mass offers.
