“The glory of God is the living man, but the life of man is the vision of God’, says St. Irenaeus, getting to the heart of what happens when man meets God on the mountain in the wilderness. Ultimately, it is the very life of man, man himself as living righteously, that is the true worship of God, but life only becomes real life when it receives its form from looking toward God.” ~Pope Benedict XVI
The liturgy of the Mass is something that unites us socially, personally, and universally with the world wide Church. In participating in the liturgy as a minister or attendee we each can participate in the touching of Heaven and Earth.
The celebration of Holy Mass is as valuable as the death of Jesus on the cross. ~ Saint Thomas Aquinas
