    Christians today have lots of different opinions about what "worship" should look like. Some think it should be all preaching, others think it should be 'entertaining', still others think it's all about the music. But what does the Bible say about worship? And why do Catholics do what they do at Mass? Why all the standing, sitting, kneeling, and repetition? Where does it all come from?

    In this important series, Dr. Brant Pitre takes you on a scriptural tour of topics such as:

    The Shape of Worship: Who determines how we worship? God or us? 
    The Meaning of Sacrifice: Why did God demand animal sacrifice in the Old Testament? What was the meaning of blood sacrifice? Does it play any role in Christian worship today? 
    The Tabernacle of Moses:  What did worship look like in the Old Testament? How does it parallel the Mass today?
    The Book of Revelation:  What does worship look like in Heaven? How does Revelation reveal the Mass?
    The Jewish Passover: What was Passover worship like at the time of Jesus? Why was it so important, and how does it parallel Catholic worship today?
    The Last Supper and the Death of Christ: Why did Jesus choose to die during the Passover? How did his death fulfill the Jewish sacrifices in the Temple?
    The Biblical Roots of the Mass: How does the Bible unlock the mysteries behind the words and actions in the Mass?

    Many Catholics know what to do at Mass, but not why we do it. And many non-Catholics are confused by the rituals and words of the Mass. Some even think that most of the Mass is just 'made up'--a tradition of men. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you've ever wondered about whether or not the Mass is biblical, then look no further: Why We Worship is the perfect resource for parishes, RCIA programs, Bible studies--for anyone who wants to understand the Bible really says about the mystery and meaning of worship.

I had never known the reason forthe way we worship. This is a master piece. I am deeply thankful to Dr. Pitre and Catholic productions for this series. I'm going to remember this institution in my prayers.

Illuminating!

A cradle Catholic and a product of parochial schools, I NEVER saw the Mass like this. My dad, who is 93, is watching the Worship series with me...he said that he also had no clue as to the origin of the service. the Why We Worship makes Mass so much richer for both of us.

Genesis

I am listening to this while driving and sometimes deliberately take the slow lane which will keep me longer in the car. I just can’t get enough. Many thanks for making the lectures publicly available

Jesus the Bridegroom

Excellent. Great overview for the book we are using for our bible study.

Enlightening!

Great talk on adoration, and our need to spend time with our Lord.

Essential preparation for Easter

I am so glad that Dr. Petri came out with these videos of his presentations. I have read a lot of his books and use them in my Catechism Class. Please don't miss this opportunity to feast on what has taken him years to accumulate. It would be such a waste of a soul.
If your not fond of reading, definitely get his videos for yourself, your family, or for bringing back uneducated Catholics who may have left the faith. Our faith is so rich it is like a finely woven Persian carpet that takes years to make before you see the pattern...Dr. Petri has done all the weaving for you, you just get to step back and admire the work and then revel in what he reveals to you.
We are using this video in a presentation for our Parish the week before Easter...thank you Dr. Pitre!!!

Absolutely Amazing!!

As I've come to expect from Dr. Pitre!! He can take a profound mystery, which is central to our faith, and take us through a step by step process, to help us understand and appreciate this on a whole new level!! I recommend this to every Catholic!!
