The Cordial Catholic Podcast – 032: Everything You Need to Know About the Mass

The Cordial Catholic Podcast – 032: Everything You Need to Know About the Mass November 6, 2019

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast I’m joined by Dr. Denis McNamara, director of the Center for Beauty and Culture at Benedictine College and one of the hosts of the popular Liturgy Guys podcast to talk about the Catholic Mass.

What is the point of the Mass? What’s with all the standing, sitting, and kneeling? What’s the purpose behind all of the liturgical rites and rituals?

Dr. McNamara, an expert in this field, will absolutely blow your mind, I guarantee, with the sheer wealth of information he shares with me throughout the course of this interview. Everyone, non-Catholic, new Catholic, or even the seasoned believer will absolutely learn something new which will, I’m sure, help to deepen your faith!

For more of what Dr. McNamara is up to make sure to check out The Liturgy Guys podcast.
