The Mass is a sacrifice because Jesus, the one time, once for all, holy sacrifice for the sins of the world becomes truly present for us there, on the altar.

Why have sacrifices pretty much died out everywhere, yet it remains within Catholicism? Because the cross of Christ is the “one, full, final sacrifice”. On the cross the sacrificial systems of the world were fulfilled. All was completed. The Mass is the daily remembrance of that one, full, final sacrifice. Through the mystery of the Mass we bring that completed sacrifice into the present moment and apply it’s graces to our needs today.

Suddenly!

Is The Way In Which GOD Works…

The ways of GOD are sudden and without warning.

A miracle happens. A vision or a locution is bestowed upon someone. A loved one is taken.

GOD does not normally give prior notice of what he is about to do.

One noticeable exception to this general rule was the great ‘Miracle of the Sun’ at Fatima on October 13, 1917.

It was revealed ahead of time by GOD through the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Some people live their entire lives without serving GOD in any way and seem to think that on their death bed they will repent and make their peace with Him.

We must all be prepared to go at anytime. Look what happened to Princess Diana, Princess Grace, John F. Kennedy, and many others who were taken without warning.

Were they all prepared and in GOD’S grace and ready to go?

If we are going on a trip in this life, do we not prepare for it a long time in advance?

Why then do so many not prepare for their final eternal trip, the only trip that really matters?
