One of the more widely read spiritual writers of these times, here offers his extensive following a unique, clear, analytic presentation of the basic role of sacrifice and blood in man's nature -- now continued in the Sacrifice of the Mass, the central act of worship in the Catholic Church. In the facile, explicit style of the practiced and effective teacher-writer, who with his column The Word has been the anchor-man author for the past several years of every issue of America, the National Catholic Weekly Review, Father McCorry develops a theme which will make the Mass so much more meaningful to all who read these reflections. The benefit of Father McCorry's complete involvement in making spiritual life real cannot help but follow from a reading of It Is His Own Blood. The author demonstrates that ""the Mass is Everything"" in this series of short essays, which can be read piecemeal or together, but which offer laymen and religious a deeper knowledge of, love for, and desire to participate in the Mass. Here is truly a readable appreciation of the Mass in which the author shares his own deep love for the ""Greatest Prayer"" with mankind. It is a selection of the Spiritual Book Associates and the Catholic Literary Foundation.
