Did you know that Catholics don’t go to church services on Sundays?
We crazy Catholics actually do something called assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. If you don’t understand this, don’t feel bad. Many Catholics don’t understand what the Mass is all about.
In a nutshell, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the highest form of worshiping God on the face of heaven and earth. It’s actually where heaven and earth meet.
Catholics assist at Mass with four ends in mind. We go to Mass to worship God, to thank God for his presence in our lives, to receive pardon for our venial sins, and to petition God for our needs. As a Catholic in the state of grace, we are also welcome to receive Jesus’ body, blood, soul, and divinity in Holy Communion at every Mass. The Lord initiated the Mass at the Last Supper, and ordained his apostles as the first priest when he commanded them to, “Do this in memory of me.”
Come and see the beauty of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
