Publisher's Summary

For the past century and longer, nearly every book written by Catholics about the Catholic mass has taken the approach to explain the liturgy by dissecting it into separate parts and pieces. Contrary to this staunchly popular style of teaching, the Catholic mass is not a disjointed litany of things the laity says, things the Priest says, times they stand, times they kneel, things they do, and things they don’t do. Rather, in all of its liturgical expressions, from East to West, the Catholic mass is a singular and divinely inspired composition; a familial song of prayers and confessions. It truly is a divine symphony called the, "Ite, Missa est".

This is what makes David L. Gray’s work groundbreaking, in that finally there comes along a book that presents a harmonious symphony of the Catholic mass.

The Divine Symphony: An Exordium to the Catholic Mass consists of four very accessible and easy to listen to movements that narrate, explores, and explains the meaning, mystery, theology, history, symbolism, and continuity of the Catholic mass.

WOW!!!!

If every Catholic or individual who doesn’t understand Catholics listened to this book they would truly fall in love with Jesus! Our church’s would be bursting with holy people and we’d be opening closed churches. God bless Dr Gray for his courage. When I closed my eyes while listening I saw the synchrony between the mass being painted on the Cistine chapel and a great symphony playing as the brush strokes of words were being read. The choice of narrator was perfect! This is truly an inspired work of art!

Priest in the Parable

The content is very good but the perspective is judgement at times like the priest in the parable. Nevertheless if you want to know more about the mass this is worth learning from.
