A new initiative to help the faithful better appreciate the beauty of the Mass, the Liturgical Institute of the University of St. Mary of the Lake, Mundelein, Ill., has created a new free video series that takes viewers through every detail of the Mass. Elements of the Catholic Mass, is a collection of short 2-5 minute videos on different aspects or elements of the Mass. A new episode is released each Sunday, and every episode can be watched on YouTube or Facebook. Those interested can receive episodes by e-mail or view them on the series’ website at www.ElementsOfTheCatholicMass.com.
The Holy Father spoke about how these three weeks of intense work have had different meanings for families, the Christian community and the Church, and reiterated that “the true defenders of doctrine are not those who uphold its letter, but its spirit; not ideas but people; not formulae but the gratuitousness of God’s love and forgiveness”.
