 Our Description


Distractions, fatigue, boredom at Sunday worship - maybe we experience these because we don't fully appreciate what's going on at Mass.  Howard's profound and practical look at the liturgy focuses our wandering minds.  It reminds us that at Mass the veil separating heaven and earth lifts, so that we stand with angels and saints in the presence of God Most High.


"Every Catholic needs this book.  I need this book."
- Scott Hahn

"We are now at a stage where the spiritual depths of the Mass deserve a fresh exposition.  This is exactly what Thomas Howard has done so attractively in his book.  His reflective guidance is just what we need after many years of busy ways of getting into a participatory mode.  Howard does more than probe the meaning of the Mass.  He shows us how to pay attention and let the wonder of the Eucharist touch our souls."
- Rev. Alfred McBride, O.Praem, Author, Celebrating the Mass

"Thomas Howard has written a book that will be treasured by anyone who wants to get more out of Mass.  While this book would be a gem in any age, it is especially valuable in a day when people are given so few sound, practical helps for understanding and appreciating the divine gift that is the Mass."
- James Akin, Author, Mass Confusion:  The Do's and Don'ts of  
         Catholic Worship

"Tom Howard has provided for an essential but missing piece in our equipment:  a contemporary step by step, prayer by prayer, guide through the celebration of the Eucharist.  He contributes a presentation founded on firm orthodoxy, sensitive to the meaning of the liturgy as it has been given to us, and expressed in the vivid prose for which he is justly famous.  It is worth anyone's reading."
- Steven Clark, Author, Catholics and the Eucharist

Thomas Howard is a professor of English at St. John's Seminary, Boston.  His many books include On Being Catholic and Evangelical is Not Enough.
