 Our Description

There is no surer pledge or clearer sign of this great hope in the heavens and new earth "in which righteousness dwells" (2 Pet 3:13), than the Eucharist. Every time this mystery is celebrated, "the work of our redemption is carried on" and we "break the one bread that provides the medicine of immortality, the antidote for death, and the food that makes us live forever in Jesus Christ" (Lumen gentium 3) - Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1405.

 Father Alfred McBride extends to all an earnest invitation to know and love the Mass more deeply. The Catechism calls the Eucharist "the heart and summit of the Church's life" (1407). Certainly we are called to participate as fully and enthusiastically as possible.

 Along with the official texts of the Ordinary of the Mass are Father McBride's enlightening explanations. Also included are:

  • The scriptural and historical background of the Last Supper
  • The tremendous significance of the Eucharist and what really happens
  • All four Eucharistic prayers - how they differ in focus and what elements remain the same
  • The liturgical sights and sounds, altar vessels, furnishings, and vestments

An ideal prayer companion, Celebrating the Mass is a convenient guide for all who seek a better understanding of this, our most sacred banquet, and to celebrate more profoundly the great mystery of love we call the Mass.

Includes the third edition of the Roman Missal.
