Description

From the back cover:

“The Mass on the World” is a lengthy prayer written by the great theologian Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Rich with imagery and passion and suggesting more than it states, it remains Teilhard’s most popular essay. In Teilhard’s Mass, Thomas King explores the heart and mind of the man as no other approach has done.

Furthermore, Teilhard’s Mass shows how a Christian can transform one’s life and death into an all-embracing Mass on the Altar of the World. A recent encyclical on the Eucharist speaks of every Mass having “a cosmic dimension.” This book enables those interested in the liturgy to understand the claim.
