Why Go to Mass? # 5

+ JMJ +

The Mass is far more than just a “feel good” experience. I go to Mass because it is the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ, which is not only the salvation of the Church, but the salvation of the world.

If we do not have Christ’s sacrifice, we do not have either physical or spiritual salvation. I believe that without the Sacrifice of Christ being constantly offered to our Heavenly Father, our sins would call down the destruction of God upon the entire earth.

There is nothing more important in the entire universe than the Sacrifice of the Mass. It is the Sacrifice of Christ, and thus the Sacrifice of the Mass, stands between mankind and total destruction.

As we pray in the Consecration:

"We offer unto You, O Lord, the chalice of salvation, and grant that in the sight of Your divine majesty, it may ascend as a sweet-smelling savour for our salvation, and that of all the whole world."
