This intelligent, straightforward guide to the Mass concentrates on the ritual form of the liturgy. Following the Order of the Mass, Fr. Jeremy Driscoll explores the ways in which we proclaim the Resurrection of Jesus Christ by means of our words and ritual actions. Through our ritual celebration of the liturgy, this proclamation causes what once happened to be present now as the event happening at Mass, where the ritual forms of the bread, the wine, and the movements of the priest and people are all completely imbued with significance, with divine life itself. Through this vivid exploration of our ritual words, signs, and actions, readers will come to a better understanding of the Mass as an encounter with Jesus Christ.
