Chapter 3-The Mysteries of Holy Mass

In Holy Mass that same Child is also present who was adored by the Three Kings, taken by Simeon in his arms, and presented by the Blessed Mother of God in the Temple to the Eternal Father.  We can imitate the example of those holy personages and offer to Christ acceptable worship and merit an everlasting reward.  Furthermore, we hear Christ proclaiming to us by the mouth of the priest His holy Gospel, to the profit and salvation of our souls.  As the Mass proceeds, we behold Him exercising His miraculous power, transforming wine into His sacred Blood, a miracle far greater than that of Cana, where He changed water into wine.  Or we see Him, as at the Last Supper, changing the elements of bread and wine into His very Flesh and Blood. Finally, at the Elevation we see Christ lifted up upon the Cross, with the ears of our spiritual sense we hear Him interceding for us: "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." (Luke 23:34).  "They know not," that is, how deeply they have outraged Thy Divine Majesty by their transgressions.  We do not, it is true, behold all these things with our bodily eyes; we discern them by the light of supernatural faith, and by this our faith we merit a greater recompense than those who witnessed them with the organs of the body.  This we know on the authority of Our Lord Himself, who said: "Blessed are they that have not seen and have believed." (John 20:29).  The higher and more incomprehensible are these mysteries, the more meritorious is our faith, and the greater will be our reward in Heaven.  In regard to this, Father Sanchez writes: "If Christians did but know how to profit by these things, they might, by hearing one single Mass, acquire a greater store of riches than could be found in all created things."

Furthermore, in Holy Mass Christ fulfills that most true and consoling promise which is recorded by the evangelist St. Matthew: "Behold, I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world" (Matt. 28:20).  These words are not to be understood as referring only to His divinity, in virtue of which He is everywhere present, but also to His sacred humanity, in which He dwells among us, present in the Mass and in the Adorable Sacrament of the Altar, ready at all times to listen to our prayers, to afford us assistance in our need.  It must, moreover, be observed that in the Mass Christ is not merely present in person, as in the Adorable Sacrament of the Altar:  He is there as our Victim, our Mediator, as the Atonement for our sins.  For since Christ exercises in the Mass His sacerdotal functions by right of His office, it belongs to Him, as St. Paul says, "That He may offer up gifts and sacrifices for sins" (Heb. 5:1), that He may, that is, offer up Himself to His heavenly Father for the sins of the people, as he offered Himself up to Him upon the Cross.
