WHAT IS THE MASS?
Many Catholics attend the Mass without fully understanding its meaning and purpose. This book was written to provide that understanding.
Fr Kocik walks the reader through the Mass from beginning to end, explaining each and every aspect in a clear, easy-to-follow style. But there is real substance here as well: Fr. Kocik often discusses the history behind a particular prayer or gesture and the Scriptural background as well. This is no dry textbook. He makes understanding the Mass an enjoyable journey.
The Mass is a treasure-house of grace, but all too often the doors to this treasure-house remain closed through a lock of understanding. This book was written to open the doors – to help Catholics appreciate and embrace the transformative power of the Mass.
