Overview

Word and Sacrament. This is the food that sustains us here on our pilgrimage to heaven. The Word of God and the Sacrament of the altar - this is our daily bread. What greater gift could we ask for than to hear the Word of God proclaimed and receive our Lord each day at holy Mass? This is the foundation of our faith; here is the paragon of prayer which strengthens us for our work in this world.

In this writing the author has sought to allow the Scripture readings for each Mass (and all Masses of the liturgical calendar are covered: all Sundays and weekdays of Ordinary Time, Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter seasons, as well as Solemnities and Feasts) speak for themselves. This is evident in his extensive quoting and paraphrasing of the Word, but perhaps more significantly in his taking as his guiding principle the Lord's instruction not to consider beforehand what to say when brought to bear witness to Him (see Mk.13:11).

After reading the Scriptures for the day three times (before dawn), Mr. Kurt let the Spirit direct him - writing without revision, trusting entirely in the Lord. Thus "describing spiritual realities in spiritual terms" (1Cor.2:13), the message and tone of the writing reflect that of the readings themselves; the work is therefore termed an exposition of the readings of Catholic Mass.

This book has received an imprimatur from the Most Reverend John J. Meyers, J.C.D., D.D., Archbishop of Newark, New Jersey.

    Profound meditations of the Catholic Mass

    Our Daily Bread is a book of meditations inspired by the scriptures used in the liturgy of the Holy Catholic Mass. Each meditation reads as a homily and facilitates for the reader the understanding of the Word of God and its powerful message.

    The book cover shows a picture of the monstrance with the Blessed Sacrament and a crucifix in the background. In front of the monstrance, there is a lectionary opened to the readings for a weekday Mass. The book received the ''Nihil Obstat'' from Rev. Anthony Figueiredo and the ''Imprimatur'' from the Most Reverend John J. Myers, J.C.D., D.D. Archbishop of Newark, New Jersey. These are official declarations of the Church confirming that a book is free of doctrinal error.

    This book could have greatly benefited from an introduction to the Church's calendar and its traditions to help the reader locate the proper scriptures in the correct Church year and/or season.

    I can highly recommend this book to lay persons, members of the clergy looking for a good, powerful, and simple homily, and others with some knowledge of the Church's calendar or the lectionary. As an educational tool, I could recommend this book for adult study groups and for youth preparing for the sacrament of Confirmation. The book will provide a good foundation to grow in the knowledge of their faith, strengthen themselves with the Bread of Heaven, and protect themselves from tempations with the Armour of the Word of God.
