Our 15th Anniversary Giveaway: Living the Mass

"Living the Mass" giveaway in honor of Catechist's Journey anniversary

We hope you’ve enjoyed our year-long celebration of the 15th anniversary of the launch of Catechist’s Journey and publication of The Catechist’s Toolbox. Our celebration concludes today with the chance to win a copy of Living the Mass: How One Hour a Week Can Change Your Life.

Many Catholics believe that far more people would attend Mass if only the homilies were better, or the music were more inspiring, or . . . the list goes on. My co-author, Fr. Dominic Grassi, and I am convinced that the real problem lies not in the Mass itself but in a lack of understanding of how the Mass prepares each person to live day in and day out as a baptized Catholic Christian. In Living the Mass, Fr. Grassi and I explain how each part of the Mass relates to our baptismal call, effectively closing the gap between Sunday Mass and the rest of the week. We wrote this book for the countless Catholics who attend Mass simply out of habit, for the many who haven’t been to Mass in a while, or for anyone who desires to join the Catholic Church. Our hope is to demonstrate how the one hour spent at Mass on Sunday can truly transform how we think and act the other 167 hours of the week.

Read the official giveaway rules below. Enter by 12:00 a.m. central time on December 15, 2022. Winner will be contacted for address. Open to U.S. mailing addresses only.
