Why The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass?

"...The Lord Jesus, on the night he was handed over, took bread, and, after he had given thanks, broke it and said, "This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me." In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes." -1Cor 11:23b-26

And that was all, the first Catholic Mass said by our Lord himself a few hours before he laid down his life for us, as a Testament and Memorial, different from the Jewish cult or Passover in the Temple.

This is the paschal mystery our Lord himself urged us to remember every time we celebrate the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, on Holy Thursday or Easter, the death and resurrection that provided us salvation and redemption when we were lost and couldn't find a way to our heavenly Father.

How blessed we are when we recall everyday this mystery, scandal for Jews and folly for Gentiles, as far as there is no Christian community without the Eucharistic Celebration?

As you can notice it through the bimillenary history of our dynamic, and pilgrim Church, the rite of the Catholic Mass has been changed to make it more meaningful to faithful of every age.

From the varied forms of early centuries, still resplendent in the rites of the Ancient Churches of the East, up to the spread of the Roman Rite; from the clear indications of the Council of Trent and the Missal of Saint Pius V to the liturgical renewal called for by the Second Vatican Council (Benedict XVI, Sacramentum Cantatis, n.3).

But the key word institution remains unchanged.

Nowadays since Vatican II, the Mass is said in around 21 rites mostly made up, as it were, of two parts: the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist, so closely interconnected that they form one single act of worship.

The Roman Rite is celebrated at Saint Aloysius Catholic Church, Buckley, Washington, daily (except Mondays), every Saturday evening and Sunday. Our Lady of Lourdes celebrates the Catholic Mass every Sunday in Wilkeson Washington.

Come and adore the Lord in the Truth and Spirit. Come at the source and summit of your life to get energy for your mission in your society.
