Bestselling author Scott Hahn sheds new light on the Mass, offering readers a deeper appreciation of the most familiar of Catholic rituals .
Of all things Catholic, there is nothing that is so familiar as the Mass. With its unchanging prayers, the Mass fits Catholics like their favorite clothes. Yet most Catholics sitting in the pews on Sundays fail to see the powerful supernatural drama that enfolds them. Pope John Paul II described the Mass as “Heaven on Earth,” explaining that what “we celebrate on Earth is a mysterious participation in the heavenly liturgy.”
The Lamb’s Supper reveals a long-lost secret of the Church: The early Christians’ key to understanding the mysteries of the Mass was the New Testament Book of Revelation. With its bizarre imagery, its mystic visions of heaven, and its end-of-time prophecies, Revelation mirrors the sacrifice and celebration of the Eucharist.
Beautifully written, in clear direct language, bestselling Catholic author Scott Hahn’s new book will help readers see the Mass with new eyes, pray the liturgy with a renewed heart, and enter into the Mass more fully, enthusiastically, intelligently, and powerfully than ever before.

Isaías 6:6, nos dice como los serafines tomaron un carbón encendido , que habían tomado del Altar, con él le toco la boca, y dijo” He aquí, esto toco tus labios y es quitada tu iniquidad y perdonado tu pecado”. No es ese momento donde recibimos el cordero de Dios en nuestros labios y boca, transformando nuestro ser, en ese momento que recibimos el pan, el cuerpo de cristo, él que ha perdonado nuestros pecados, “ese carbón encendido que es tomado del Altar”, el que recibimos en cada Misa.
Scott Hahn is a great scholar. He unveils the last book of the bible so eloquently. His insights and knowledge give us a better understanding of the mysteries of our Catholic Faith.
The best book on explanation of the Book of Revelation.
I did not really understand the Mass until I read this book. Once I began reading it, I couldn’t put it down! An amazing book on Mass and the book of Revelation, by an amazing author!
Not that bad
