Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

20130525_115634My Daily Offering

O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers, works, joys and sufferings of this day, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world.  I offer them for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart: the salvation of souls, reparation for sin, and the reunion of all Christians.  I offer them for the intentions of our bishops and of all Apostles of Prayer, and in particular for those recommended by our Holy Father this month. Amen.

The following message was given to Nancy Fowler of Conyers, Georgia,  by our Lord Jesus Christ: “I instituted the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass to remind you of My self-oblation upon Calvary. In it I continue the work which I began upon Calvary. In each Mass My body and blood are offered to My Father as an act of perfect adoration, thanksgiving, reparation, and petition for your needs. In each Mass, I represent you upon the altar. In each Mass I am still performing My Supreme act of love for you. Your devotedness to Me will be proved most perfectly when you have learned to join your daily life to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  Attend as often as possible. You should offer yourself for love of Me in your daily occupations and activities. This will make your daily life a perfect oblation. You will seek to belong ever more perfectly to Me by practicing greater self control and mortification.”

Hebrews 7:24 “But Jesus lives on forever, and His work as priest does not pass on to someone else. And so He is able, now and always to save those who come to God through Him, because He lives forever to plead with God for them.”

Romans 12:1 “So then, my friends, because of God’s great mercy to us I appeal to you: Offer yourselves as a living sacrifice to God, dedicated to His service and pleasing to Him. This is the true worship that you should offer. Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able to know the will of God – what is good and is pleasing to Him and is perfect.”

My thoughts: God’s plan is perfect, because God is Perfect Love.  The mass is the Calvary Holy Sacrifice relived again and again, so that we can partake and be apart of this Greatest Sacrifice and receive God’s Mercy. At each and every Mass a miracle occurs: the miracle of the Last Supper and the consecration of the Holy Eucharist.  The bread and wine become the BODY, BLOOD, SOUL AND DIVINITY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.  The sacrifice Jesus made for our salvation has given us so many beautiful gifts.  How can anyone not attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and not feel overwhelmed with gratitude, love and humility?  Our God is an awesome God.

C’est Bon!
