A guided tour of the Mass

The Mass had become too rote for me. This series gave me a much deeper understand of what is really happening on the altar.

Very good

Many informative insights that helped me understand the mass better. Also learned a lot about why we do much of what we do and where in the Bible we are getting it from. Understanding the mass better makes for a better, more fulfilling experience every time you go.

The Catholic moment

Dr. Barber shows us how biblical and beautiful the Mass is. A very important topic. And in Dr. Barber you have a great guide indeed. Your appreciation of the Mass, the most important moment in our Catholic lives, will grow and bear fruits.

    There is perhaps no aspect of Catholicism more familiar to Catholics than the Mass. Week after week, we celebrate the eucharist, repeating the same prayers and rituals. But do we really know what all of these words and deeds mean? In this series, Dr. Michael Barber offers an overview of the Mass, explaining the significance of each element. For example:

    • What does “Hosanna” mean?
    • Why do we call the eucharistic celebration, the “Mass”?
    • Why does the congregation respond to the priest’s greeting, “And with your Spirit”?
    • What does “liturgy” mean? Why does the Bible call Jesus a “liturgist”?
    • Why is the collection an integral part of the Church’s prayer?

    Just “going through the motions” can be monotonous. In fact, the Second Vatican Council called Catholics to enter into a “fully conscious and active participation” in the liturgy. Without understanding the various parts of the Mass, it is practically impossible to do that. This series, however, aims to help you experience the Church’s celebration in just such a way.

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!
