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.

This was helpful to me in my journey from a member of a modern evangelical free/charismatic church to finding my home in the Catholic Church. The mass was and is still a great mystery to me, but now I better understand why that is. These talks started slowly but explained many aspects of the mass in a concise but not overly simplified way. I particularly enjoyed the latter sections on the theology of the Eucharist. The author hints at a deep richness in the mass that is our privilege to discover.
