    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.

General Survey soliicition

Feedback: the surveys are way to premature for me, I order all my material as part of an overall plan for Bible Studies / Evangelization / RCIA.

I get great reviews for the products I have utilized, but about 2/3 of the purchases are going into programs not yet launched at a parish level.

So, if you are looking for a superficial response - so far things are great; but if you are watching my purchasing patterns, you see our parish is falling in love with the entire JEWISH ROOTS series.

What I want to emphasis please, is to keep investing in DVD options for all talks; and the ONLINE Notes to DVD are very very well received.

Remember when they get around to CANCELLING the online ability's of Catholic parishes, I will always have my laptop, a projector and your DVD in my travel bag to keep promoting the faith.

Thanks for all you are doing for the Kingdom of God.

The Seven Sacraments: Are They Biblical?

Wives Do What?!
Richard Wise
And the two shall become one

Here’s the deal. Husbands and wives are helpmates to heaven. This is a great presentation on how to do that. Matrimony is about a covenant based on sacrificial love. That would be a God based relationship.

Excellent Resource

Great study on the Mass as Biblical worship. If you’ve ever wondered why the Mass is structured the way it is, this is the Bible study for you. Brant Pitre is a dynamic and engaging speaker, and I highly recommend anything from him.

Very informative.

A wonderful presentation! I now have a much better understanding of this great saint. As I have been commissioned to paint an icon of St Joseph it has been timely and inspirational.

Wives Do What?!

Knowing the Context Removes the Blinders

You cannot understand what St. Paul is teaching if you don't know who he is speaking to and how these people lived in the first century. You must understand the historical background, and no one explains it better than Dr. Petre. He opens up the first century, shows us how the gentiles lived and, more importantly, how Christ wanted them to live. The sad truth is that we face a similar culture today, and it gives me hope that the Church and its teachings survived and will survive again. If I had anything to say about it, I would insist that every engaged couple view this presentation. St. Paul's teachings are as relevant today as they were twenty centuries ago. I've been married for 35 years, but I learned a little more on how to improve my relationship with my husband.

Do I recommend this product to others? Absolutely! Everyone can learn from it.
