What does the Mass mean to you?

Although it takes only an hour each week, the Mass is one of the most important ways Catholics can receive Christ’s love and mercy. When you express your faith alongside your brothers and sisters, you’re doing more than participating in powerful traditions. You’re also deepening your spiritual life.

In The Joy of the Mass, leading liturgical expert Dr. Timothy P. O’Malley guides you on an enlightening and inspiring journey. Grounded in the historical and spiritual developments of the Mass, these 12 lectures will enrich your faith and enhance your enjoyment of each Eucharistic celebration. Whether you are a priest or a parishioner, you will learn to use 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. Through a deeper participation in the Mass, you will discover self-giving love, an enriched life of prayer, and fuller engagement with the world.

This life-changing course will inform your theological understanding and inspire your fruitful participation in the source and summit of Christian life: the Eucharistic liturgy. A communion with God, the Eucharist reveals the key to happiness and transforms the world.

Let the power of the Mass draw you closer to God today.
