Publisher's Summary

In this brilliantly taught course, you will explore the theology and practice of the Catholic Mass with one of the world's leading liturgical professors as your guide. 
Catholics believe that every time they gather to celebrate, they are acting in obedience to Jesus' command to "do this in memory of me." Catholics have obeyed this command for nearly 2,000 years, and now you can explore anew the spiritual and theological meaning of this vital celebration. 
Your guide is Fr. John Baldovin, SJ (PhD Yale), a celebrated professor of liturgical theology at Boston College and past president of the North American Academy of Liturgy. Under his guidance, you will gain powerful answers to the most important questions about the Mass. How did Vatican II influence Eucharistic Liturgy? How does what we celebrate today find its roots in the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of the Lord? How has the celebration of the Mass developed over the centuries? How were the Scripture passages used in the Sunday lectionary chosen? What language and ritual gestures are suitable for our celebrations? How does the Mass unite us to the Lord and to one another? How does it participate in the Paschal Mystery? What is the meaning of transubstantiation? 
Fr. Baldovin answers these and many more questions. Anyone looking for a deeper understanding of the Liturgy of the Eucharist will treasure this course.

Best 5 hour audio program on the Catholic Liturgy

I am a big listener of audio books, and more recently I have chosen to listen to those that pertain to the Catholic Liturgy in order to have a much deeper understanding and appreciation of it. Out of the few books/programs that I have already listened to on this topic, I enjoyed this one the most. I think it provided me with the most essential information. I truly learned a lot from it and would recommend this program to anyone who would like to know more about the technical details of the Mass: the various rites, Eucharistic prayers, etc.
