Though celebrated throughout the world over a span of centuries, there is more to the Mass than meets the eye. Mike Aquilina not only answers practical questions about this central act of Catholic worship but also explains the meaning behind the prayers and practices, just in time for the new translation of the missal.

  • Why does the priest mix water with the wine?
  • Why do some receive Communion on the tongue and others in the hand?
