The Catholic Mass

The Mass is our central act of worship, in which the Eucharist is consecrated (changed into the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus).  Mass consists of two main parts: The Liturgy of the Word, in which the people hear the Scriptures read and then broken open in a short sermon, and The Liturgy of the Eucharist, in which we enter into the Paschal Mystery and the Last Supper of Jesus on the night before he died. The Mass is the place where we bring our lives to the Father, we receive Christ Jesus, and we go out in the power of the Holy Spirit to love and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28).
