Review: This is My Body

1) The Mass: This begins with two meditations and witnesses followed by an actual Mass being celebrated while David Payne provides background teaching and commentary.
2) What is the Mass? - Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio provides a wonderful theological basis and explanation.
3) Eucharistic Amazement - Fr. Stan Fortunato, the rapping Franciscan priest from New York City, does this presentation to an audience of youth—but it is engaging for people of any age.
4) Getting More Out of Mass - Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio.
5) Eucharist Makes us Holy - Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, the preacher to the papal household from Rome.
6) Knowing God’s Help - David Payne which provides a wonderful conclusion emphasizing that everything we receive from the Lord is by his grace.

The speakers for this series are outstanding. David Payne and Fr. Stan are very down to earth and relevant to everyone. Dr. D’Ambrosio and Fr. Cantalamessa are both excellent in their theology, though people find they have to listen to Fr. Cantalamessa very carefully to catch what he is saying—since Italian is his first language.
