The Mass Is Never Ended
Gregory F. Augustine Pierce, author of the best-selling Spirituality at Work and former president of the National Center for the Laity, examines the Mass through the lens of the dismissal rite, reinvigorating Catholics' understanding of the liturgy and how it sends them forth to the work they do every day. "Ite, missa est" ("Go, we are sent forth"). Both profound and practical, and at times entertaining, The Mass Is Never Ended reminds readers of the meaning of the Mass and urges Catholics not to lose sight of its purpose during our everyday lives. Pierce outlines the basics of a spirituality of work, leaving readers with a renewed appreciation for the beauty and wisdom of the Mass.
