Couched in the language and look of a fairy tale, and rich in solemn beauty, this tale of what happened when a destitute widow begs only a crust of bread in return for offering the Royal Wedding Mass is based on a true miracle.
The Weight of a Mass supplies a tale rooted in Christian tradition to fill a sorely-neglected gap. While this fairy tale neither treats of theology, nor of the actual liturgy of the Mass itself, it presents this reality with the respect and reverence due to it.
For the members of the Catholic and Orthodox churches, to whom the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the source and summit of their spirituality, the release of The Weight of a Mass, A Tale of Faith has been a genuine cause for celebration.
The book includes an Author 's Postscript about the historical miracle that prompted the telling.
