Mass Explained is a walk through the Eucharistic celebration from beginning to end. The book explores the Mass including the source of its prayers, the meaning of its postures, and the development of its vessels and vestments.
What sets Mass Explained apart from other titles, however, is its enlistment of the Church’s vast inheritance of sacred art and architecture to help tell the story of the liturgy. Inside you’ll also find a wealth of diagrams, maps, and charts that organize complex information into engaging and easy-to-understand infographics. In addition, hundreds of photographs capture beautiful, up-close images that clearly illustrate key points in the Mass.
At the end of each of its 43 chapters, a chapter overview, 15 review questions and three questions for reflection and group discussion make Mass Explained ideal for use in the classroom, with a parish group, or on your own at home. It will renew faith, deepen devotion, and increase participation in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
