At the Supper of the Lamb: A Pastoral and Theological Commentary will help you understand the parts of the Mass so that you may enter them more intentionally and prepare for them. Following the Order of Mass at it appears in the third edition of The Roman Missal, this resource is an invitation to worship, a call to new intention, a deeper awareness of the privilege we share to be invited to the supper of the Lamb.

This book includes:

  • Separate chapters for each of the four parts of the Mass
  • Texts from the third edition of The Roman Missal and General Instruction of the Roman Missal
  • Pastoral, theological, and historical background on every part of the Mass
  • Questions for Discussion and Reflection
  • Marginal white space for taking notes
  • Explanatory footnotes
  • List of abbreviations and bibliography for reference

This book will be helpful to:

  • Understand the Mass
  • Learn the texts from the third edition of The Roman Missal
  • Facilitate discussion and adult faith formation sessions on the Mass
  • Prepare vibrant and dynamic liturgies as called for by the Church’s official documentation
  • Evaluate your community’s celebration of the Mass

"A worthy successor to Fr. Turner's Let Us Pray: A Guide to the Rubrics of Sunday Mass, At the Supper of the Lamb: A Pastoral and Theological Commentary is a guide to liturgical mystagogy from a wise and seasoned pastor and scholar. Always grounded in the revised English-language text of the Roman Rite Order of Mass in its 'ordinary form,' the author offers a succinct commentary on each element, combining historical data with theological insight. What makes the work so helpful, however, are the questions for reflection and discussion appended to the background Fr. Turner offers, questions that gently but forcefully invite readers to become attentive to what is said and done during Mass in order to deepen their understanding of and prayer during Mass. I highly recommend this little book as a wonderful vehicle to develop the full, conscious and active engagement with the liturgy that is the right and duty of all the baptized."
