Its purpose is simple: to provide worshipers with a liturgical resource that is consistent with the directives of the Church and accessible to the average parishioner, especially in regards to music.
This is accomplished in two ways. First, by using simple plainsong melodies for the Entrance and Communion antiphons, so that a cantor, choir, and even a congregation can easily sing them. Second, by selecting hymns and songs which, combined, provide a repertoire of sacred songs that is fitting for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, yet accessible for the average parish.

Responding to the Second Vatican Council’s Constitution on Sacred Liturgy Sacrosanctum Concilium, the purpose of Canta la Misa is to promote full, active and conscious participation in the Holy Mass through Sacred music. This is done in several ways. First, by setting the Entrance and Communion antiphons and Responsorial Psalms to beautiful and simple chant tunes so that a choir, cantor, or congregation may be able to sing them. Second, by including hymns and songs that are fitting for the Holy Mass yet accessible to the average parish. Third, by including the Sunday readings so that the faithful may follow along with the spoken Word. The beautiful typesetting and cover design completes this book as a perfect addition for a parish striving to promote reverence in the Sacred Liturgy and active participation in its Sacred Mysteries.

Scripture scholar and wellknown author Dr. Edward Sri takes listeners on a journey through the sacred liturgy that is sure to help Catholics experience the Mass more fully as the most powerful and important prayer of the Church. Dr. Sri examines the historical and biblical roots of the words, prayers, actions, and gestures contained within the Mass in order to arrive at a deeper understanding of their significance.
Dr. Scott Hahn explains through his legendary testimony how he was militantly anti-Catholic but self-driven to seek the truth. This ultimately led him into the Catholic Church. He soon became an ardent defender of the Faith and one of its most passionate promoters.

“We live in an age that does not orient the heart toward mystery. As a consequence, too many Catholics approach the Holy Eucharist with—let's be honest—indifference. The Augustine Institute has provided a much-needed tonic. Presence is a perfect blend of storytelling to fire the imagination, personal testimony to stir the soul, and theological instruction to inform the intellect. This lively and compelling series on the central reality of the Catholic religion is ideal for catechists, teachers, parents of children preparing for First Communion, and anyone who finds himself longing to love Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament more but not knowing where to begin.”Chris Check
