The Mass on the World

A Modern Theory of Transubstantiation (2008)

Richard Pendergast undertook the development of a Christian cosmology based on reality as process, to replace the medieval static worldview. This is the fascinating lifetime work of a
Catholic priest-scientist, an original thinker who has opened pathways for generations to follow and explore. 

Reviews and endorsements

Let us arise, then, at last, for the Scripture stirs us up, saying, ‘Now is the hour for us to rise from sleep’ (Rom. 13:11). Let us open our eyes to the deifying light.
— The Rule of St. Benedict (Prologue)

“The call of Benedict in the beginning in Europe is echoed as Richard Pendergast proclaims the light of Christ to the modern world.” 

Bishop Astric Várszegi, OSB, Historian, Archabbot Emeritus of Pannonhalma, Hungary

“A hundred years ago Teilhard de Chardin had a Christian vision of the world in the light of evolution. Following him, Richard Pendergast began the task of systematic analysis to reflect the vision that he shared, in order to help show the way in humanity’s search for God.”
Bishop Attila Miklósházy, SJ, Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology, Toronto School of Theology

“In our age, science is revealing to us, even more, the true grandeur of God’s design. Writing in the spirit of Pope St. John Paul II’s teaching on science, philosophy, and theology in a common quest for understanding, Richard Pendergast undertook the development of a Christian cosmology based on reality as process, to replace the medieval static worldview. This is the fascinating lifetime work of a Catholic priest-scientist, an original thinker who has opened pathways for generations to follow and explore. While there may be other approaches, Fr. Pendergast’s desire to synthesize faith and reason, theology and science, to speak in a language intelligible to our technological age, is to be admired and
emulated. His work is a must-read for anyone who wishes to evangelize the scientifically literate generations now being formed.”
Msgr. Stuart W. Swetland, STD, President of Donnelly College, Kansas; Commentator on religious issues on national radio and television; Academic degrees in theology (Pontifical Lateran University), physics (US Naval Academy), philosophy and economics (Oxford)
