Just as folk tales about African American, Jewish, Native American, and other cultural and religious traditions fill a real and active need not only on booksellers' shelves, but also for schools, and for libraries ' circle times, THE WEIGHT OF A MASS, A Tale of Faith supplies a tale rooted in Christian tradition to fill a sorely-neglected gap.

While this trade-quality fairy tale neither treats of theology, nor of the actual liturgy of the Mass itself, it presents this Christian 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.
