Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the bestselling authors of The Mass, an insightful and practical guide that explores the architectural and spiritual components of the Catholic Church.

Your local church is not only a physical place, but a spiritual home. In this thought-provoking book, Wuerl and Aquilina illuminate the importance of the Church in its many guises and examine the theological ideas behind the physical structure of churches, cathedrals, and basilicas. How is a church designed? What is the function of the altar? What does the nave represent? What is the significance of the choir loft? With eloquent prose and elegant black-and-white photography, these questions and many more will lead to answers that illuminate the history and practicality of Catholic life.

Synopsis:

An insightful and practical guide to the most sacred of Catholic traditions. Now includes a new afterword by the authors on how to better appreciate the Mass.

Now, as the Church prepares for upcoming changes to the Mass, it is the perfect opportunity for Catholics of every generation to renew or complete their appreciation for this fundamental practice. With eloquent prose and elegant black-and-white photography, bestselling authors Archbishop Wuerl and Mike Aquilina team up to lead us through the different parts of this most sacred of traditions.
