    Of all things Catholic, there is nothing that is so familiar as the Mass. With its unchanging prayers, the Mass fits Catholics like their favorite clothes. Yet most Catholics sitting in the pews on Sundays fail to see the powerful supernatural drama that enfolds them. Pope John Paul II described the Mass as "Heaven on Earth," explaining that what "we celebrate on Earth is a mysterious participation in the heavenly liturgy."

    Story
    If you could sum up The Lamb's Supper in three words, what would they be?

    Intelligent, Faith, Revealing


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is kind of a silly question since this is a non-fiction, religious book. But my answer would be God. Why? God became man and sacraficed himself for m sake, and not matter what I do, he loves me as his child. Who do you think my favorite character is?


    Which character – as performed by Scott Hahn – was your favorite?

    himself...


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The entire book moved me. In the end, Scott is a very educated and studied Christian. When he explains the Mass as heaven on earth, they open things inside myself, allowing me to more fully participate (and understand) the mass on each and every Sunday. If growing your understanding of God (and by doing such groing your faith) doesn't move you, I'm not sure what will.


    Any additional comments?

    Scott Hahn is an intellectual writer. Still, he has a knack for connecting with us "ordinary folk". Scott puts his years of study together into a solid explanaiton of wha the mass is, how the early Christians initially organized it, and what it means. The last place you might look would be the book of Revelations, but Scott goes into great detail into his journey of trying to decipher that most cryptic of books. He has spent a large portion of his life researching that book and what it may or may not mean. He explains how little satisfaction he gained from the simple explanations repeated over and over in his calvanist origins. By joining the Catholic Church, more things opened up to Scott in his studies. Coming to understand the mass and map it to the book of revelations helped him to understand John's writings. He then came to explain the mass through the book of Revelations (or vice versa, however you want to view it). The academic process and pure logic utilized here is astounding.

    The book goes much deeper into the Mass than just hte book of revelations, but by the time you finish listening/reading you will have a much better understanding of what it means to participate in our Mass.
