Chapter 2-The Excellence of Holy Mass

THE GREAT HIGH PRIEST OF THE NEW TESTAMENT (cont.)

​​Hence it follows that each Mass that is said is an act of such supreme dignity, performed by Christ Himself with such piety, reverence and love, that neither man nor Angel can fully comprehend it.  This was revealed to St. Mechtilde by Our Lord Himself in these words:  "I alone know and perfectly understand what this offering is that I daily make of Myself for the salvation of the faithful; it surpasses the comprehension of Cherubim and Seraphim and all the hosts of Heaven."  O my God, how glorious, potent and beyond all price must be this Sacrifice which Christ makes of Himself in the Holy Mass, since the highest celestial intelligences are unable to grasp and comprehend it!  O adorable Jesus, how unsearchable is this mystery, since Thy divine wisdom and understanding alone can know and appreciate it!  Happy the man who assists at Holy Mass and thereby merits to participate in the Sacrifice Thou dost offer up for him, the virtue, the efficacy of which no created intelligence can fathom!

Let us then lay this to heart and consider well of what great profit it is for us to hear Mass, because in the Holy Mass, Jesus Christ offers Himself up for us and places Himself as a mediator between the divine justice and the sins of mankind and either altogether averts, or at least arrests, the chastisement which is the due penalty of our daily offenses.  Did we but recognize this correctly, how we should love Holy Mass, how devoutly we should hear it, how reluctant should we be to all anything to keep us from it!  In fact, we should choose rather to suffer temporal loss than to deprive our soul of the benefit of assisting at this Sacred and Salutary Sacrifice.  Such was the fervor of the early Christians that they would rather lose their life than omit Mass.  Baronius tells a striking story on this subject.  The incident occurred about the year 303 (and we will begin with it next week).
