New Publication, ‘His Mass and Ours: Meditations on Living Eucharistically’: This book, from Fr. Brendan Leahy, is a series of short daily readings for a span of four weeks. Each day includes a brief reflection and an experience from life. In this book, drawing on the theme of the Eucharistic Congress, Leahy offers an explanation of the dual dimension of the Mass - Christ’s gift and our existential participation, His action and our daily cooperation. By reflecting on the parts of the Mass in the light of the theme of communion, the author draws out the meaning and value of what happens at Mass, and what we say and do in response - from our mental and spiritual state as we enter the church, through the opening procession, to the final blessing and out into the relationships that make up our daily life: available from New City press, Amazon and in book shops. Orders can be placed by emailing orders@newcitypress.com.
