The Mass #10 – We stand for the Gospel because an important person has entered the room. Jesus Himself speaks to us and calls us to conversion, and a deeper friendship with Him. Believe what we read, Teach what we believe, and Practice what we teach.
The Mass #9 – The Church Fathers compared reading scripture to a cow chewing its cud. If you don’t understand a particular reading, don’t worry – it will be back in 3 years! We read from the Old Testament and the New Testament and chew on what was said.
Homily on the Mass #8: Liturgy of the Word – Reading the Bible at Mass is like Story Time with our Heavenly Father. Through the Bible the Father comes lovingly to meet His children and speaks to them. The Bible is telling our story.
Mass#7 – The Bible reveals three aspects about the Mass: Sacrifice, the Real Presence, and Communion. This Communion with Jesus lifts are burdens and gives us peace and joy. Come to Christ and you will find that depending on Him is true independence.
