Why Go to Holy Mass? (4 Reasons You Might Not Know)

Did you know that the Mass is a real sacrifice? That it’s not just something we get, but something we give? What are the fruits or effects of the Mass on us, the faithful?

There are many beautiful truths about the Mass that we don’t know (or forget), but Br. Michelangelo is here with Fr. Mark-Mary today to share and remind us of 4 of them:

  1. The Mass is a re-presentation of the sacrifice of Christ
  2. The Mass is something that we give, not just get
  3. We are all called to participate in the Mass
  4. The Mass is fruitful and effective for us
