If Your Mind Wanders at Mass by Thomas Howard (††††)
Synopsis: “Distractions, fatigue, boredom at Sunday worship--maybe we experience these because we don't fully appreciate what's going on at Mass. Howard's profound and practical look at the liturgy focuses our wandering minds. It reminds us that at Mass the veil separating earth and heaven lifts, so that we stand with angels and saints in the presence of God Most High.” Scott Hahn. “We are now at a stage where the spiritual depths of the Mass deserve a fresh exposition. Howard’s reflective guidance is just what we need after many years of busy ways of getting into a participatory mode. He does more than probe the meaning of the Mass. He shows us how to pay attention and let the sonder of the Eucharist touch our souls.” Rev. Alfred McBride, O.Praem.
