    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.

Wonderful overview of Mass

Wonderful overview of Mass and how the elements of Mass tie in to Jewish temple practices. This demonstrates the historicity of Mass and refutes the protestant protestation that it is newer or even pagan in practice.

Outstanding!

If everyone knew all the info in this CD, Mass would be much more crowded!

The Mass comes alive!

Dr. Pitre has the rare ability of mixing great scholarship with new and useful insights. I have talks and books on this theme, and thought I could dispense with this one. My mistake! He really makes the Mass come alive with great information and ways for our worship become more faithful. Can't recommend enough!

Wonderful biblical explanation of the mass!

It was such an ear-opening experience to learn just how much of the mass is based on scripture. Not only passages taken from the bible but the order of the mass and where those scripture verses come from. The mass was configured in such an ordered way that leads to such a powerful realization - we get to see a glimpse of heaven each time we partake in the mass!

Comprehensive Look at Spiritual Theology

Good series of lectures. Mature look at prayer that moves beyond petitionary prayer.

Parcel still on tour.

My order was actioned promptly, is all I can say, so far. I watch the tracker as my books enjoy a leisurely voyage across various US mail stops, then around Asia; last notified leaving Narita Airport 2 days ago. I look forward to tracking them to the next point, wherever that will be, please God, it will be Auckland, NZ. and at last, to my small town. Then I can review!

The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Jewish Roots of the Church

I love it. Bergsma is a very astute historian yet had much devotion to the Lord. I am currently on lecture 3. So much to learn here...

Fantastic!!

Dr. Pitre is engaging in his presentations. I have learned so much over the years by reading his books and listening to his presentations like this one. Dr. Pitre, thank you for sharing your knowledge!

Never Received my order

Can’t give it a good review if I don’t receive it. Spent a lot of money on items I ordered 14 days ago, but still haven’t received them.

Hi Gary! I am showing that it was delivered on the 12th of January. If this is not correct please let me know. I am sorry for the delayed shipping. The USPS has been struggling to keep up lately.
