5 Ways You Can Participate More Fully in Holy Mass

Last week, Fr. Mark-Mary invited us to not just show up for Mass, but actually pray the Mass—participate in the Mass. But… what does that actually look like?

Today, Fr. Mark-Mary gives us 5 concrete ways to enter more fully into the celebration of Holy Mass.

Want to go even deeper? Dr. Edward Sri did an entire study on the Biblical roots of the Mass and how we can fully understand and participate in Mass. Check out the 10th Anniversary Edition of one of Ascension most popular studies, A Biblical Walk Through the Mass with Dr. Edward Sri.
