University of Notre Dame's Dr. Timothy P. O'Malley guides you on an enlightening journey through every aspect of the Eucharistic celebration.

Although it takes only an hour each week, the Mass is one of the most important ways Catholics profess their beliefs in Christian love and mercy. When Catholics express their faith alongside their brothers and sisters, they are not only participating in powerful traditions but also deepening their spiritual lives.

Now The Joy of the Catholic Mass and the Celebration of Eucharist lets you take this leading liturgical expert as your personal professor anywhere and anytime. Grounded in the historical and spiritual developments of the Mass, Dr. O'Malley's 12 lectures will enrich your faith and enhance your enjoyment of each Eucharistic celebration. Whether you are a priest or layperson, you will learn to view the Mass as a spiritual practice for healing in the modern age.

To enhance your understanding, you'll draw on the philosophical, theological, and spiritual insights of such luminaries as St. Augustine of Hippo, St. Thomas Aquinas, Pope Francis, and Evelyn Underhill. This inspiring course will inform your theological understanding and inspire your fruitful participation in the source and summit of Christian life: the Eucharistic liturgy.

This course is part of the Learn25 collection.

Critic reviews

“Timothy O’Malley puts liturgical theology into conversation with the most pressing concerns parishioners feel today, especially young people. Speaking from the heart of the Church, he ranges from Augustine to questions posed by modern regular culture. You will look more deeply into the Mass after these talks.” (David W. Fagerberg, Professor, Liturgical Theology, University of Notre Dame)

“Tim O’Malley’s passion for the Mass is inspiring to his students. Deeply formed by the spirituality of the liturgy in ages past and present, Prof. O’Malley brings the riches of the Liturgy alive through his witness of teaching. I am confident that his lecture series, The Joy of the Mass will invite students to draw more closely to the font and source of the Christian life, the Mass.” (Katharine E. Harmon, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Theology, Marian University)

He is a gifted speaker with a keen sense of reading and interpreting the signs of the times. He has the ability to inspire his audience through not only his knowledge but also his witness of faith and engaging personality.” (Daniella Zsupan-Jerome, Professor of Pastoral Theology at Notre Dame)

Excellent Source to understand mass

Dr O'Malley has done an excellent job of outlining the nuts and bolts of the mass in a succinct manner. I have listened this book and his another book about the mass several times. I am deacon in the Church and I found them so useful to have the information put together in one place, A MUST READ for all Catholics.
