The Lamb's Supper
The Mass as Heaven on Earth
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
As seen on EWTN with over 600,000 copies sold! Bestselling author Scott Hahn unveils the mysteries of the Mass, offering readers a deeper appreciation of the most familiar of Catholic rituals.
Of all things Catholic, there is nothing that is so familiar as the Mass. With its unchanging prayers, the Mass fits Catholics like their favorite clothes. Yet most Catholics sitting in the pews on Sundays fail to see the powerful supernatural drama that enfolds them. Pope John Paul II described the Mass as "Heaven on Earth," explaining that what "we celebrate on Earth is a mysterious participation in the heavenly liturgy."
The Lamb’s Supper reveals a long-lost secret of the Church: The early Christians' key to understanding the mysteries of the Mass was the New Testament Book of Revelation. With its bizarre imagery, its mystic visions of heaven, and its end-of-time prophecies, Revelation mirrors the sacrifice and celebration of the Eucharist.
Beautifully written, in clear direct language, bestselling Catholic author Scott Hahn's new book will help readers see the Mass with new eyes, pray the liturgy with a renewed heart, and enter into the Mass more fully, enthusiastically, intelligently, and powerfully than ever before.

This book truly helped to "reveal" the Mass sprinkled all over Revelations. I can now truly understand how the Mass is heaven on earth.
I first read this when it was initially published. It was - and still is - so eye opening to see the relationship between the Mass and the Book of Revelation. It was a great read then and still is today.
Excellent Application of an Often Confusing Text to our Cherished Mass
Hahn, has an outstanding grasp of scripture. In The Lamb's Supper, he lays out a very compelling case that our entire order of Mass is derived exclusively from the mysterious and heavily symbolic book of Revelation. I highly recommend to Catholics and non-Catholics alike as evidence that our traditions are strongly rooted in Holy Scripture.
