Scott Hahn gives a fasinating insight into the origins of the liturgy, which has helped me to appreciate the Mass and my contribution to it. Although he readily points out that this is not new - indeed the early Church Fathers taught this - he presents the subject in a manner which makes you ask the question: "This is simple, so why haven't I heard this from my priest?"
The Book of Revelation does appear to be full of weird and strange stuff that Joe Layman would consider to be futuristic, but now it makes more sense. Friends and family (Catholic and non-Catholic alike) have been surprised by what is presented in this book, but they see the connection. Some non-Catholic Christian friends of mine are now asking themselves if the Reformation threw the baby out with the bath water.
This is a darn good read, and provides a strong resource for Bible Study. But don't just copy it - question it, research it, and debate it!
This book also complements other material by Scott Hahn; A Father Who Keeps His Promises (book), and The Book of Revelation - Bible Study (tape series).
Go on ... BUY IT!
Scott Hahn also goes through the book of Revelation, showing you how it is describing the Liturgy. And explains other biblical and historical details of Revelation.
The best book I have ever read!
What a must read for all Christians; I could not put it down I just had to read it through, yet I never wanted to come to the end of the book because it is so very good! Thoughly recommended.
The beastly message is this we are fighting spiritual forces: immense, deprayed, malevolent forces. If we had to fight them alone, we would be trounced. But here is good news: there is a way we can hope to overcome. The solution has to match the problem, spiritual force for spiritual force, immense beauty for immense ugliness, holiness for depravity, love for malevolence. The solution is for the Mass, when heaven touches down to save an earth under siege.
Though heaven's angels present themselves to human eyes in physical form, angels do actually not have bodies. Their name means “messenger” and the physical attributes usually symbolize some aspect of their nature or mission. Wings indicate their swiftness in moving between heaven and earth. Multiple eyes signify their knowledge and watchfulness. Many eyed six wing angels might sound scary at first but if we think of them in terms of their swiftness and vigilance, we will be reassured. These are beings we can count on , when the dragon threatens our peace
We need to put ourselves through the rigors of basic training, living a sustained and disciplined life of prayer and studying the faith daily, reading the Bible using Catholic tapes, TV, and books (especially the Catechism of the Catholic Church). All this is a lifelong talk
D-Day. Yet the battler remains a battle. Even if our victory is assured, the fighting itself won't necessarily be easy and this is especially true at the Mass. Knowing the power of grace, the devil will most forcefully assault us, says one ancient teacher “at the time of the great feasts and during the Divine Liturgy –especially when we are intending to receive the Holy Communion “
What is our particular combat during the Mass ? Maybe it is warding off contempt for the worshiper whose perfume is too strong, or the man who sings the wrong lyrics off-key, May bet it is holding back our judgment against the parishioner who is skipping out early. May be it is turning the other way when we begin to wonder how low that neck line really goes.
No one but God and His Angels will notice that you did not mentally critique Father's homily this week. No one but God and His Angels will notice that you withheld judgment against the family that was underdressed. So you don't get a medal; you win habits instead
