Understanding the Mass, by Rev. Maynard Kolodziej, OFM
A booklet about the Mass that is very practical and easy to understand. It explains the meaning of Holy Week, the Paschal Mystery, and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Fr. Maynard bases this book on Exodus (the 2nd book of the Bible) which gives us the blueprint of the Kingdom of God, the basic plan upon which the Church instituted by Christ is built. As Moses led the Israelites through the Red Sea to a new life as God's redeemed and from the sea to the promised land, directed by a pillar of fire, fed by miraculous food, so Christ, the new Moses, leads his Chosen People through the Red Sea of His redeeming Blood, through this life as a desert, until they ascend with Him into the Promised Land, the kingdom of Heaven.
