A Biblical Walk through the Mass

We just celebrated the Feast of Corpus Christi and more and more diocese are lifting dispensations and urging the faithful to return to Mass. It’s ironic that all this is happening as Ed Sri celebrates the 10th anniversary of his Biblical Walk through the Mass. He joins us to take us on our own walk through the liturgy, tying it to the Scriptures.
