The Mass is the highest form of Christian Charity – it represents the perfect sacrifice of Calvary, and so it is the priest’s essential duty and greatest honor to offer Mass. The Christian faithful in all ages have traditionally offered alms for the celebration of Mass, for the support of the priest and the maintenance of the church where the holy rites are celebrated.
The Reasons Why We Should Have Masses Said Now For Ourselves And The Living:
Masses offered during our life will go before us, to either cancel our debt – whole or in part, of the punishment due for our sins; thus, it may greatly shorten our Purgatory.
Masses offered for us during our life can help us obtain the great grace of a happy and holy death. The most beautiful gift one can give to another person is a Spiritual Bouquet of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. No material gift can ever compare to or equal the Infinite Value of the Holy Mass.
Especially efficacious is having the Holy Sacrifice offered for hardened sinners and those who are dying.
Masses may be offered in reparation for the outrages, offenses and blasphemies against Christ in the Holy Eucharist, and insults to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Masses may be offered in thanksgiving for our blessings, family, health and answer to prayers is very pleasing to the Most Blessed Trinity.
Masses for our departed loved ones and all the Holy Souls in Purgatory is a great act of charity, efficacious and meritorious.
