From EWTN's write-up of the show (with speaker bios):

Prefigured in the Old Testament and fulfilled in the New, the biblical story of the Mass spans the breadth of Scripture and beyond. What Jesus began on Calvary culminated in everlasting glory in the heavenly sanctuary, and is made present on earth every time the Church celebrates the Sacrifice of the Mass. Join Father Wade Menezes and EWTN Theology Advisor Tom Nash as they explore The Biblical Story of the Mass.

Series Name:The Biblical Story of the Mass Tom Nash, Fr. Wade Menezes

Date Produced:7/28/2011
Description:The biblical story of the Mass didn’t begin at the Last Supper and Good Friday, nor did it end there. Sacrifices from Abel and Abraham to Melchizedek and Moses set the stage for Jesus Christ, “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” The Mass sacramentally re-presents or makes present again Christ’s one Sacrifice of Calvary, which began on the Cross and culminated in everlasting glory in the heavenly sanctuary.

The Napoleon of Notting Hill

by G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936)
While the novel is humorous (one instance has the King sitting on top of an omnibus and speaking to it as to a horse: “Forward, my beauty, my Arab,” he said, patting the omnibus encouragingly, “fleetest of all thy bounding tribe”), it is also an adventure story: Chesterton is not afraid to let blood be drawn in his battles, fought with sword and halberd in the London streets, and Wayne thinks up a few ingenious strategies; and, finally, the novel is philosophical, considering the value of one man’s actions and the virtue of respect for one’s enemies.

    Long time friend of the show, Dave, wrote in with the following tip:

    Hi Ryan,

    Anticipating the upcoming changes in translation of the Roman Missal, Fr John Riccardo held a 4 day mission with the goal of initiating a journey toward a greater understanding of the spiritual realities that occur during Mass. The focus then centers on the Eucharist.

    From Sunday, March 13th, through Wednesday, March 16th, Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish is conducting a parish mission titled Do This in Remembrance of Me. Fr. Riccardo is presenting evening sessions each night beginning at 7 PM. This is Fr. John's presentation from the Sunday evening session. His bibliography for the parish mission is available for download.

    Gilbert Keith Chesterton
    "Eugenics and Other Evils," by Gilbert Keith Chesterton. I think G.K. Chesterton explains his book rather well in his introduction, but it might help to start with a sense of the time in question. Chesterton started work on Eugenics and Other Evils in about 1910, but it was not completed and published until 1922. In his own introduction he talks about the period before and after "The War." The war he refers to is now called World War One. We now have a distaste for the word Eugenics,...

    "Heretics," a series of essays by Gilbert Keith Chesterton. First published in 1905. Read by David "Grizzly" Smith. Chesterton had a sense of humor, had a sense of drama, and had sense. He was a man of strong opinions, and quite willing to argue vehemently for his own opinions, even with his friends -- and they remained his friends -- like George Bernard Shaw and Rudyard Kipling. Seems to me that is hard to find anymore. He wrote prolifically. He wrote humor. He wrote mystery novels,...

    The Catholic Company sent me a CD and workbook to review - Conversion, by Fr. Robert Barron. Here ya' go:

    For those of you who aren't familiar with Fr. Robert Barron of The Word On Fire podcast, you should be. In short, he's a preacher par excellence from the Chicago area. In this two CD set, Fr. Barron ellucidates six conversion stories from the Old and New Testaments: Bartimaeus, the Rich Young man, the Woman at the Well, the Calling of Matthew, Jonas, and the Magi.

    If you're familiar with the Word On Fire podcast then the format will feel familiar. These stories are told in ~20 minute segments and, like the podcasts, the vignettes open and close with a musical background. To be frank, a few of the musical backgrounds went on too long and it was a little distracting. Pleasant music, mind you, but I was trying to focus on the words not the music.

    As for the content, it's worth the price. I listen to a lot of audio, most only once. This set will easily bear a second listening. Fr. Barron seamlessly interweaves giants like Dante and Carrivagio into a narrative which is surprisingly accessible. and spiritually insightful. Whether you're a bookish academic or a more regular sort, you will find something to enrich your spiritual life in these disks.

    There is also a workbook which accompanies this set. The workbook is cross referenced with the Catechism and the questions would be suitable for self-study or group-study. I'm not much of a small groups guy, so I can't say how easy to use it would be in that setting. Nevertheless, if you had any hesitation that Fr. Barron's style would be a bit highbrow, this accompaniment should ease your mind.

    In short - it's good Lenten fare. If your Lent isn't progressing as you'd like, you should consider giving yourself a boost with this set.

    This review was written as part of the Catholic book reviewer program from The Catholic Company. Visit The Catholic Company to find more information on Conversion CD Bundle (CD/Study Guide Bundle) . They are also a great source for serenity prayer and baptism gifts.

    Baptism now Saves! (A Biblical Defense & Lenten Mission)

    A sacrament is an outward and visible sign instituted by Christ to impart an inward and invisible grace. Jesus Christ himself is the sacrament, as he gave his life to save mankind and gave us these sacraments to help us lead a A Christian Life.

    The sacrament of Baptism makes us part of the mystical body of Christ (CCC 1272), cleanses us from original sin through the regeneration by water (CCC 1213), and is necessary for Salvation (CCC 1257). In this Bible Study we will take a further look at the Catholic understanding of this important sacrament and find the clear teachings of Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture that support this understanding.


    John 1:32 ; Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16; John 3:5; 1 Cor 12:13; Col 2:11-12;

    1 Pet 3:21; G

    en. 17:12, Lev. 12:3, Col 2:11-12; Matt. 18:2-5, Matt 19:14; Acts 16:15


    The presentation on Baptism was given in the context of the Lenten Mission held by the St. Damien's Parish (formerly St. Sophia's church) on Molokai. To listen to the entire day's presentation, which including the biblical basis for Lent, Confession, Baptism, Suffering, Fasting, and Indulgences, listen to the Mp3 below.

    The following is a book review for the Catholic Company. They didn't ask me to be positive or negative, but they did give me the book. It is an honest opinion. [/disclosure]

    Why He is a Saint—The Life and Faith of Pope John Paul II and the Case for Canonization.


    On May 1, 2011, Pope Benedict will beatify the Venerable Pope John Paul II, conferring on him the title “Blessed,” thus bringing him one step closer to sainthood. (Beatification, which requires a miracle attributed to the blessed’s intercession, allows his local church to venerate him, whereas canonization requires two attested miracles and allows veneration of the saint by the universal Church.) How Pope John Paul II got this far in the process is memorably recounted in Msgr. Slawomir Oder’s new book, “Why He Is A Saint—The Life and Faith of Pope John Paul II and the Case for Canonization. The Congregation for the Causes of the Saints appointed Msgr. Oder to gather evidence in furtherance of John Paul’s cause for beatification. He wrote Why He Is A Saint after finishing his task. Divided into three chapters—The Man, The Pope, and The Mystic—the 189-page book recounts John Paul’s life, accomplishments, and sanctity through the eyewitness accounts of those who knew him.


    We learn, for instance, how as a young seminarian in Nazi-occupied Poland, Karol Wojtyla, as John Paul was known then, worked at a chemical plan to avoid deportation while continuing his studies in secret. During this period, a fellow seminarian was struck, above all, by Wojtyla’s “kindness, his benevolence, and his sense of comradeship.” In 1946, Wojtyla was ordained and celebrated his first Mass in Wawel Cathedral in Crakow. By becoming a priest, he realized God’s calling in his life: “Nothing,” John Paul later said, “means more to me or gives me greater joy than to celebrate Mass each day and to serve God’s people in the Church. That has been true since the day of my ordination as priest. Nothing has ever changed this, not even becoming pope.” As a priest, Wojtyla’s parishioners were deeply impressed by his extraordinary devotion to the Eucharist, as manifested by his long sessions adoring the Most Blessed Sacrament. Msgr. Oder writes that


    [i]t was not uncommon for Wojtyla to spend part of the night in prayer before the altar, stretched out on the floor, his arms spread in the sign of the cross. As one eyewitness put it, “The presence of Christ in the tabernacle allowed him to have a very personal relationship with him: not merely to speak to Christ, but actually converse with him.” After observing the behavior of the young chaplain for a time, his housekeeper prophesied: “You will become a bishop.”


    Of course, he did. And the author shares an shrewd assessment of Bishop Wojtyla—offered by his enemies. In a secret communiqué opposing Wojtyla’s candidacy for archbishop of Cracow, the Polish Secret Police wrote:


    Since he is a particularly gifted person with a great talent for organization, he is the only bishop who would be able not only to consolidate the members of the curia and the diocesan clergy but also to attract a substantial portion of the intelligentsia and the young Catholics, among whom he enjoys considerable respect . . . he is an especially dangerous ideological adversary.


    Wojtyla was indeed a “dangerous ideological adversary” of communism. As bishop, archbishop, cardinal, and pope he played a critical role—perhaps the most important role—in the downfall of communism in Europe. But it is John Paul’s deep prayer life that makes the biggest impression in Why He Is A Saint. Recalled a witness,


    I am convinced that John Paul was favored by a special grace of prayer, which allowed him to penetrate the mysteries of faith in a way that was not accessible to ordinary people. So many times I saw his face, after contemplation and adoration, visibly changed and happy. During prayer he seemed to be in continual conversation with God, like Moses who spoke with God face to face. During prayer, Wojtyla did not notice anything that happened around him. He seemed to lose all sense of time, to the extent that his secretary at a certain point would have to shake him out of this extraordinary state of concentration because other commitments awaited him.


    Msgr. Oder movingly describes this mystic’s last days, when, afflicted with the painful and humiliating effects of Parkinson’s disease, John Paul suffered publicly and bore the cross Christ had given him. “During his last Holy Week, to a cardinal who was urging him not to strain himself excessively, he said, ‘Jesus did not descend from the cross, why should I?’” And as is fitting, it was through John Paul’s intercession that a French nun was miraculously cured of Parkinson’s disease, thus providing the miracle needed for his beatification.


    Why He Is A Saint, vividly portrays the life of a saintly man whom we should all strive to imitate—a man who lived his entire life and bore his appointed crosses for Christ. For this reason the book would serve as an excellent Lenten companion and primer on the life of John Paul II—on the eve of his beatification.


    So there you have it. Now go get your copy. :0)

    ...yeah, you know the one. Eph 5.

    Long time Friend of the Show and frequent submissions contributor, Dave S., writes in with the following:

    Here is a link to an excellent commentary on Ephesians 5:21-33 by Fr. John Riccardo as part of his Theology Of The Body series. With Valentine's day coming up, it seems like a perfect opportunity to look at what scripture is telling us about Christian marriage.

    Just in case you don't know "that passage" from Ephesians, here it is:

    21Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ.
    22Wives, be subject to your husbands, as to the Lord.
    23For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior.
    24As the church is subject to Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands.
    25Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,
    26that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,
    27that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.
    28Even so husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
    29For no man ever hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ does the church,
    30because we are members of his body.
    31"For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh."
    32This mystery is a profound one, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church;
    33however, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

    Thanks to Fr. Z for the following:

    In the past I have asked for prayers for, Philip Johnson, a seminarian with an inoperable brain tumor.

    A reader alerted me to a video of a talk that he gave at Catholic High School called St. Thomas More Academy, in Raleigh, NC.

    He covers four major points:

    1. His conversion story. Not being a great Catholic in High School. Looked forward to fraternities and parties in college. Ultimately went to the Naval Academy. It was there that he went to Mass again and began feeling called to the priesthood. He explains this call and talks about time he spent in France, especially at Lourdes.
    2. His vocation story which is ultimately intertwined with his cancer diagnosis and being released from the Navy.
    3. Being diagnosed with a terminal and inoperable brain tumor and reacting to this news.
    4. Embracing this cross and talking about the value of redemptive suffering.
