Mega churches don’t know what they’re missing out on! Get to know these beautiful items that are used during the Holy Mass and remember that Mass is not supposed to be a concert, we are there to worship our God. It is our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, who is on the altar in the hands of the Priest! Where the sinner is reconciled with God who is PRESENT and ready to wipe away all our sins. His Mercy is endless and His love is everlasting for all those who receive Him with faith and reverence.
“Let the entire man be seized with fear; let the whole world tremble; let Heaven exult when Christ, the Son of the Living God, is on the altar in the hands of the priest. I admirable height and stupendous condescension! O humble sublimity! O sublime humility! That the Lord of the universe, God and the Son of God, so humbled Himself that our salvation He hides Himself under a morsel of bread.” -St. Francis of Assisi
"At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic Sacrifice of his Body and Blood. He did this in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the centuries until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a paschal banquet in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us" (Sacrosanctum Concilium 47).
Even a modestly informed Catholic can set an inquirer right and direct him to biblical accounts of Jesus’ final night with his disciples. Turning to the text, we read, "And he took bread, and when he had given thanks he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me’" (Luke 22:19).
