    Have you ever wondered why we do what we do at Mass? Why do we rise when the Priest enters the sanctuary? Why make the Sign of the Cross at the beginning and end? Why do we sometimes sit, sometimes stand, and sometimes kneel? And what is the meaning of the various prayers and responses that fill up our weekly hour of worship?

    In this Bible study, Dr. Brant Pitre takes you on a biblical tour of the Mass, using Sacred Scripture and ancient Jewish tradition to show you the biblical roots of the various parts of the Catholic Mass. Along the way, you’ll learn such things as:


    • How Mass tells us that we are entering into the “Tabernacle” of Moses in order to meet God
    • Where the “Sign of the Cross” can be found in the Old Testament
    • Why the two blind men cried out, “Lord, Have Mercy” (Kyrie Eleison) and what should be going on inside of us when we cry out with them
    • Where the “Glory to God in the highest” (the Gloria) comes from in the Bible, and why we sing it during some seasons (Ordinary Time), but not during others (Advent)
    • Why we stand for the Gospel reading, and where the practice of biblical homilies can be found in Scripture
    • Where the “Holy, Holy, Holy” (the Sanctus) comes from in the Bible
    • And much more…


    According to Pope Benedict XVI, in order for Christians to actively and fruitfully participate in the Mass, they must understand “the meaning of the signs contained in the rites” (Sacrament of Charity, 64). In this revealing presentation, Dr. Brant Pitre heeds Pope Benedict’s call by explaining the biblical meanings of the Mass’s most significant moments, so that you can enter more fully into this most sacred of Mysteries.


    *Note from Catholic Productions*

    While there is overlap between this series and The Biblical Roots of the Mass: A Scriptural Explanation of the New Roman Missal, there is significant dissimilarity both in content and in focus. Nevertheless, we wanted our patrons aware that there will be some overlap between this and the aforementioned set.

The biblical roots of mass/ a biblical explanation of the mass.

Many a question has been answered. To me it was akind to playing music on an instrument for a very long time and then discovering the theory to make sense of it all. It's a lifetime/ lifelong journey. Thank you good people.
God bless.

Very Illuminating

I loved this talk. It gave a great introduction into the Song of Solomon, and how it is interpreted. Dr. Pitre clarified this often misunderstood text and prompted me to want to learn more about Jesus as The Bridegroom (so I am now listening to Dr. Pitre's talk "Jesus the Bridegroom"). Well worth the buy.

Very Good Biblical Study on Mary and Her Role in God's Plan

Dr. Pitre does a great job explaining biblically Mary's role and some reasons the veneration that we give her as Catholics. I knew some general concepts about this already, but his talk was very good at bringing these teachings together and expounding more fully upon these mysteries.

Excellent Explanation of the Mass as Biblical Worship

I can't tell you how many times I have used what I learned in this series when talking to both Catholics and Protestants. It is very relevant for a time when even Catholics are confused about the meaning and significance of the Mass.

Another great work by Dr. Pitre

Dr. Pitre does not disappoint in his latest look at St. Joseph, using Scripture, Church History and the Fathers to Get to the heart of who St. Joseph was. What a great resource. I can't wait for the book!
