Consecration at Solemn High Mass
The Dedication of the Church Building of Mater Misericordiae Mission - December 21, 2010
“The Holy Mass is a prayer itself, even the highest prayer that exists. It is the Sacrifice dedicated by our Redeemer at the Cross, and repeated every day on the Altar. If you wish to hear Mass as it should be heard, you must follow with eye, heart and mouth all that happens at the Altar. Further, you must pray with the Priest the holy words said by him in the Name of Christ and which Christ says by him. You have to associate your heart with the holy feelings which are contained in these words and in this manner you ought to follow all that happens on the Altar. When acting in this way you have prayed Holy Mass.”
“Don’t pray at Holy Mass, but pray the Holy Mass.” – His Holiness, Pope Saint Pius X.
Because of the serious conflicts currently taking place in Syria, Pope Francis has requested all parishes to have a vigil of fasting and prayer for peace on Saturday, September 7, the Vigil of the Nativity of Our Lady. Read the rest about it HERE.
In response to this, we at Mater Misericordiae Mission will have Exposition and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament following the 8:00am Mass until midnight.
Thursday, August 15, the Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady is a Holy Day of Obligation. Therefore, there will be an additional noon Mass on that day. See the Bulletin for the schedule.
