4 Things Catholics Should Do Before Mass

“I often see videos on how to prepare for an interview, college, etc… but I don’t see much on how to prepare for Mass.”

You’re in for a treat as Fr. Mark-Mary invites his fellow Franciscan friar Br. Michelangelo to introduce us to the “4 P’s” of preparation for Mass:

  1. Purity
  2. Prayer
  3. Peace
  4. Punctuality

“I guarantee that your experience of the Mass will change,” promises Br. Michelangelo. If you want to “get more” out of Holy Mass, try putting in more with these 4 simple hacks.

Meet Fr. Mark-Mary

Father Mark-Mary was ordained as a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal (CFR) in 2018 and lives at a friary in the Bronx.

The mission of the CFRs is to wholeheartedly embrace Jesus through fidelity to the Church and her Sacraments. Paired with their commitment to prayer, contemplation, and study of Sacred Scripture, the CFRs serve those around them, especially the poor, in the footsteps of Christ.
