    Catholics believe that the Mass is a sacrifice. But is that belief biblical? And, what is a "sacrifice" exactly? Why do we need to offer sacrifice? Join Gary Michuta as he breaks down sacrifice into its most basic elements and use them to explore the mechanics of the Old and New Testament sacrifices, most especially the Mass.

    This in-depth study answers such objections as:

    • I don't need to go to Mass. I can just pray at home."
    • "Christ died once for all never to be repeated, yet the Mass re-sacrifices Christ over and over again."
    • "Christ's death on the Cross is the only Christian sacrifice. Christ did it all. There's no need for Christians to offer any other sacrifice to God."
    • "We can restrict the 'freedom of religion' down to 'freedom of worship' without impinging upon the beliefs of Catholics."
    • and much more...

    Gary Michuta shows how gaining a better understanding of sacrifice illuminates not only the meaning of the Last Supper and the Mass but also several Old Testament passages that may not at first glance even seem to be sacrificial. This recording will not just illuminate the mind to what the sacrifice of the Mass is, but move the heart to enter into the liturgy of the Mass more devoutly, given our responsibility to offer sacrifice as part of the "priesthood of all believers."

Very rich; great gift for your Protestant friends and family.

This study is fantastic, technical, and yet very accessible. I’m not a theological novice (at least I hope that I’m not), and Mr. Michuta’s clear and well-cited breakdown of the nature of sacrifice—immolation, obligation, and communion—was something that was not in my apologetic toolbox. Apologetics aside, this study has helped further my own devotion to the holy sacrifice of the Mass.

Really Good

I love this lecture series. Wish he did more on other common objections to Catholic faith.

A copy to lend

This covers (& covers well) something that ALL Catholics should be taught, but generally are not. I had purchased the .mp3 some time ago, but I wanted to have a copy to lend out to others, it is so good. Thanks for recording this, Gary!

A fantastic volume in a wonderful series

The apologetics lesson here is second to none. I have learned more from this series and this speaker, with the entire Catholic Productions tools than I have in many years researching on my own. Well done.

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.
