The following are two online resources available to help us gain a deeper understanding of the Mass:
On the Catholic Home Study Service website (the Director of this service is Father Oscar Lukefahr, C.M.), there are nine free courses available (donations always appreciated though), one of which is entitled, “We Worship. A Guide to the Catholic Mass”. Ann, of Poetry, Prayer, and Praise first introduced us to this fabulous resource back in October 2009, and reminded us of it in a comment on the previous post. Thank you, Ann!
A second resource is a page dedicated to Understanding the Mass at St. Patrick’s Basilica here in Ottawa. While you’re at the site, check out their fantastic collection of free e-books, and especially for my friend JT, scoot down the Homepage to find Michael O’Brien!
