Guided Tour of the Mass

I was very pleased with how much I learned about the Mass from the lecture. At the beginning the Dr. Barber spoke of students who say they did not need a class on the Mass. As he asked the students questions I realized I could not answer them. Connecting the Mass to the Old Testament gives me new meaning to going to Mass and I have a deeper understanding of the Mass. I look forward to deepening my understanding of the faith.

    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.
