Today’s Question: What do people learn from attending Mass?

At Mass, through the Catholic Ministerial Priesthood and the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ becomes truly present on the holy altar, under the auspices of bread and wine.

Then, in and through Jesus Christ, the entire congregation, along with the whole Church (everywhere) offers Jesus (who is the one time, once for all, perfect and eternal sacrifice of Calvary) up to God the Father, for the forgiveness of sins, for the salvation of the world, plus anything else that we might need.

There’s also a whole lot of repenting, thanks and praise and glorification of God going on, as well.

In the process, we read from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible and the priest delivers an appropriate homily/sermon based on those particular readings. We also receive the real presence of Jesus Christ, in Holy Communion.

What do we Catholics learn from all this? 1) God loves us in a very personal and intimate way; 2) God provides for all our needs; 3) It doesn’t get much better than that, this side of Heaven!
