Why should I go to Mass?
Why should I go to Mass?
February 6th, 2012 by vocations

So often in meeting with guys or hearing their vocation stories we hear that their call was first recognized in seeing a devout priest celebrate a beautiful Mass. This is no accident as it is truly the place where Jesus transcends time and space to be truly present with us on the altar and to enter into our very bodies.  Pope Benedict XVI said it this way once, “Jesus wants to be so close to us as to become nourishment for our bones.” This is made possible at the hands of the priest in the Catholic Mass! No where else can this happen and there is no more glorious mystery on this Earth than this.

To emphasize this even more, below is a wonderful video passed onto to us by a priest of the Archdiocese on the beauty and power of the Mass. Take three minutes and remember why you go to Mass!
