This episode features a fun new intro. We also discuss the beginning of the Liturgy of the Eucharist in this fourth installment of the Understanding the Mass Series
As you may be aware, this is a pretty new podcast, and getting the word out can be a bit difficult. There are literally thousands of podcasts out there and a lot of Catholic ones, all vying for your ear and attention. So imagine my surprise when DeaconCast.Net got a mention on the highly rated Catholic Underground podcast. Now I know how an author feels when he gets a shout out from Oprah!
The premise of this series is that one can discern an entire theology from the Sacramental Rites themselves. Moving step-by-step through the rites we will extract our Catholic understanding. Though easily accessible to anyone, this series is produced with the Deacon and those in Diaconal formation in mind. With that in mind, the series will only cover those Sacraments and Rites that the Deacon may confer or lead.
In this 9th episode, we continue our Understanding the Mass series by exploring the Liturgy of the Word. We pick up where we left off in part 2 with the Gospel, homily and the Prayers of the Faithful.
