Rev. Peter Stravinskas
“The Bible and the Mass is intended to help you understand the scriptural and historical origins of the prayer used in the Mass – from the Introductory Rites to the Concluding Rite. In this book, which is formatted for use by both individuals and groups, the various rites of the Mass are explained, along with separate essays on each of the four Eucharistic Prayers. At the end of all chapters, a week of scriptural meditations and five questions for group discussion enable you to meditate on key Scriptures pertinent to the rites just studied and then to meet with others for group discussion.
“The purpose of this book, however, is not simply to understand the various prayers for the rites of the Mass, but also to help you celebrate the Mass more fully.” [From the Preface]
