    This work by Rev. Collins is a masterful synthesis of the Church Tradition regarding the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The sacrificial elements of the Mass, all too often deprecated in this post-conciliar day and age, is once again brought the fore by the illuminating and penetrating insights of Fr. Collins. The fundamental nature of the Mass, which is to say, the self-gift of Christ to the Father in the Holy Spirit, is brilliantly underscored by this concise, but significant work. This sacrifice, in its fullest dimensions, is discussed and explicated herein with precision and clarity by the author. Numerous examples and explications abound, all drawn from the rich Tradition of the Church Fathers, the Scholastics, and Fr. Collins' own insights. Highly recommended.

    The Mass as Sacrifice, In Review for Religious, by Philip C. Fischer, SJ , #67.3.2008

    Three kindred but contrasting books attracted my notice, one long, two short, all good. The late French Cardinal Charles Journet (1891-1975) was a close friend of the philosopher Jacques Maritain. His 1957 book, only recently translated, The Mass: The Presence of the Sacrifice of the Cross provides much history, doctrine, and quotation worth knowing and refreshing oneself with. The Mass as Sacrifice (ST PAULS / Alba House) by Father James B. Collins does the same, but briefly. The other short book is The Mass Is Never Ended by Gregory F. Augustine Pierce. --Philip C. Fischer, SJ in Review for Religious, #67.3.2008
