Item Description...
Overview
In many places around the world the reality of the sacrificial nature of the Mass has been seriously down-played to the detriment of the spiritual life of the faithful. Pope John Paul II lamented this in his encyclical, Icclesia de Eucharistia (No. 10) where he addressed his concern at the current state of affairs, saying, "at times one encounters an extremely reductive understanding of the Eucharistic mystery. Stripped of its sacrificial meaning, it is celebrated as if it were simply a fraternal banquet." Speaking about the impact on the ordained priesthood he went on to say, "Furthermore, the necessity of the ministerial priesthood, grounded in apostolic succession, is at times obscured and the sacramental nature of the Eucharist is reduced to its mere effectiveness as a form of proclamation." The present work examines this whole question in depth, showing how, especially in the Roman Canon, the sacrificial nature of the Mass is emphasized and expressed as it always ought to be.

Publishers Description
It is sad and shocking that in many places around the world the reality of the sacrificial nature of the Holy Mass has been seriously downplayed to the detriment of the spiritual life of the faithful. This book reasserts the fact that the Mass is a sacrifice in as much as it is a banquet.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Outstanding...  Oct 28, 2008
This work by Rev. Collins is a masterful synthesis of the Church Tradition regarding the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The sacrificial elements of the Mass, all too often deprecated in this post-conciliar day and age, are once again brought the fore by the illuminating and penetrating insights of Fr. Collins. The fundamental nature of the Mass, which is to say, the self-gift of Christ to the Father in the Holy Spirit, is brilliantly underscored by this concise, but significant work. The subject is articulated and discussed herein with precision and clarity by the author. Numerous examples and explications abound, all drawn from the rich Tradition of the Church Fathers, the Scholastics, and Fr. Collins' own insights. Highly recommended.

Sacrificial emphasis: In many places around the world, the reality of the sacrificial nature of the Mass has been seriously downplayed to the detriment of the spiritual life of the faithful. Into this issue comes The Mass as Sacrifice: Theological Reflections on the Sacrificial Elements of the Mass by Fr. James B. Collins III. Using his background with the master's degree in dogmatic theology, Fr. Collins offers insights from the Old and New Testaments, the Fathers of the Church, St. Thomas Aquinas, the Council of Trent, and popes Leo XIII, Pius XII, John Paul II and the Second Vatican Council. He examines the question in depth, showing how, especially in the Roman Canon, the sacrificial nature of the Mass is emphasized and expressed as it always ought to be. --Crux of the News, May 19, 2008
