Book Review: The Sacred That Surrounds Us: How Everything in a Catholic Church Points Us to Heaven


I’m so excited about this book!

This is a beautiful 125 page Catholic reference book as beautiful as any photographic coffee table book. It explains the historical and symbolic significance of each vessel, vestment, linen, devotional, Church furnishing and architectural component found within a Catholic Church. Each sacred article is presented with exquisite photography and meticulously described with infused Catholic teaching to relay the deeper meaning and ethereal qualities and purposes from our rich Tradition and Faith. As we learn more about these vessels, vestments and articles within the sacred spaces of our Church, we can come to a better appreciation of the beauty and significance they lend to the remarkable Sacraments we receive. This book will help to foster reverence and awe within the Faithful, as we are called to approach the Altar of the Lord.
