Chapter 1 (cont.)
THE ATTACKS MADE BY HERETICS UPON THE HOLY SACRIFICE OF THE MASS

​​Let us therefore beware lest the same thing befall us that befell the unhappy heretics.  For the evil one robbed them of the Holy Mass to their unspeakable injury; but us Catholics, since he could not succeed in depriving us of it, he blinded in great measure so that we might not fully appreciate the magnitude of this Holy Sacrifice and its immense potency.  Doubtless it was due to Satan's devices that, for a considerable period, this Divine Mystery was so seldom made the subject of sermons that so little was said or written respecting it--and thus Catholics became careless about hearing Mass, or heard it indevoutly.

As a means of preventing this evil, the Council of Trent commanded those who had the care of souls frequently to preach about the Holy Mass.  The decree is as follows: "The holy synod charges pastors and all who have the care of souls that they frequently during the celebration of Mass expound, either themselves or by others, some portion of those things which are read at Mass; and that, among the rest, they explain some mystery of this Most Holy Sacrifice, especially on the Lord's days and festivals." (Session xxii, Ch. 8).  If the people are ignorant of the great value of Holy Mass, they do not love and esteem it as they ought; they never go to Mass on weekdays, and on Sundays and holy days they are too often indifferent, irreverent, superficial; they absent themselves on a mere pretext and without the slightest scruple of conscience.

But if they understand the vast efficacy and value of the Holy Mass, they cannot fail to prize more highly this costly treasure, to love it more deeply and to assist at the Divine Oblation with greater reverence.  There is in the Catholic Church no mystery more important, more consoling, more salutary, than this Sublime Mystery of the Altar.  If this truth were recognized correctly, we should certainly see a larger attendance at Mass on weekdays.
