Use this video course to gain a new, deeper appreciation of the Catholic Mass and a more lively relationship with Christ, which come from fully and consciously participating in every part of the Mass starting with the Introductory Rites and ending with the Concluding Rites.
Take, Eat and Drink is a set of 17 short segments (three to five minutes). Each video ends with a question for personal reflection or group discussion. It appeals to all generations: youth, young adults, and older folks, from traditional Catholics to spiritual explorers who aren’t sure they want to show up at Mass. It’s designed for those who want to deepen their faith by understanding the Mass better and for catechists to use in classrooms.
Help yourself, or your parishioners and catechists, or your teens gain a new, deeper appreciation of the Mass and a more lively relationship with Christ! Use it to explain the Mass in a way that evangelizes and builds interest in full participation in the liturgy. Ideal for catechists to use in adult and youth faith formation classes, including RCIA.

Go Deeper into Holy Mass
You might also be interested in our video series entitled “Go Deeper into Holy Mass”. This course is for those who want a personal relationship with Jesus during Mass. The entire Catholic liturgy is an encounter with the True Presence of Christ, and it should change us: We should be healed by it. We should feel loved and become more fully loving as a result of it. Our hearts should become more peaceful. Our tendencies to sin should be transformed into greater strength to resist sin. A true encounter with Christ makes a difference. This is what attending church is designed to do. Check it out! >>
