Catholics interested in passing on their faith will find “The Mass” to be a useful tool on their quest.

“The Mass: How to explain what we do on Sunday to our children and friends” (published by AuthorHouse), from author John Mac Mahon, takes readers through the Catholic Mass step-by-step, but also gives deeper explanations for those looking to delve more deeply into terminology and the use of Scripture throughout the Mass.

The Mass should work at the deepest level of our being, changing us into people who share God's own life,” Mac Mahon urges. “For this to happen, we need to take part in it in a way that is inspired by the spirit of the Church's liturgy.”

The first section of “The Mass” takes readers through the Mass in simple language. Section two allows the reader to “dip into any part of the Mass to discover more deeply the meaning of it, and especially how full it is of Scripture at its foundation,” Mac Mahon states.

An excerpt from “The Mass”:

“Many practicing Catholics have a problem in saying what their faith is, and even more difficulty in saying what it is not. … One mistake that is often made is that Christianity is all about morality. Morality certainly flows from our faith, but knowledge of Christ and his teaching is more important.”

Catholics interested in passing on their faith will find “The Mass” to be a useful tool on their quest.
