Publishers Description

Howard's profound and practical look at the liturgy focuses our wandering minds. It reminds us that at Mass the veil separating earth and heaven lifts, so that we stand with angels and saints in the presence of God Most High.

Reviews - What do customers think about If Your Mind Wanders at Mass?

If Your Mind Wanders at Mass  Jan 7, 2008
great little book. I liked that this book covered all the parts of the mass, adding to my knowledge in all areas, without going on for too long, or too deep in any area. Just enough to learn more but not so much that it was overwhelming.
Wonderful!  Sep 28, 2007
Thomas Howard has given ordinary Catholics a wonderful gift in this beautiful little book. Even those whose minds never wander at Mass should read it. Howard aptly leads the reader through a step-by-step tour of the Mass, pausing along the way to explain the heavenly significance of each minute detail of the liturgy.

This book would not be particularly appropriate primer for someone who had never been to a Catholic church, but Catholics who have always wondered why we do things the way we do will find their appreciation of the Mass greatly increased by reading this slim volume.
Good read for an older Catholic  Mar 8, 2007
This is a good book for a prayer group to have a fuller understanding and appriciation for the Mass. The details explain every action and work of the Mass. The only thing lacking is a more complete cross reference to biblical sources.
Helpful at every Mass I've attended  Nov 22, 2006
Thomas Howard's book, If Your Mind Wanders at Mass, has given me visual images and insights that I have carried with me at every Mass I've attended since reading it. The significance of each part of the Mass is beautifully explained. For instance, Mr. Howard discusses the very first prayers at the Mass, where we first approach the Almighty God. What will the response of the Almighty be to His creatures? A greeting of peace and fellowship - how could God be so good to us? I had never really noticed the number of times the greetings such as "The Lord be with you/And also with you" are exchanged during the Mass, and Mr. Howard suggests that such greetings resound throughout heaven, that place of peace and love. Simple yet profound thoughts on all parts of the Mass are found throughout this small book. Reading it has given me a far greater appreciation for the gift of the Mass and greatly increased my gratitude for being able to participate in it.
Wonderful, short, easy to read book  May 19, 2006
What a simply wonderful book! This book really helped me to get more out of my participation at Mass, and to understand why things the way they are at Mass. This is a book you can go back to, time after time.
